IdiotBox Effects Blower Box Bass Distortion


At first the BlowerBox was Matt's attempt to capture the classic Voivod Blacky sound on the Nothing Face album. They are his favorite band of all time (and a huge favourite of mine as well!) and Blacky is his favorite bass player of all time.  IdiotBox was lucky enough to get Away to do the graphics for it.

It turns out to not just be a pigeon holed "specific" tone pedal, but a KILLER bass overdrive/distortion beast!

One of the main goals was to make it sound great no matter what setup was used. Small thin practice amp to monster rig.

Controls are Top Left - Volume, Bottom Left - Distortion, Top Right - High cut/boost, Bottom Right - Low cut/boost.

The low boost keeps the beef and the high boost adds the snap.

***This current version is the same circuit as the Demo videos but now has a smaller enclosure and all knobs up top and more output for lower gain settings. The original had the volume knob on the top edge by the output jack.***

Acid etched smaller 4 5/8" x 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" 125B sized enclosure, true bypass switching, common 9v center negative BOSS style power input and battery snap. Current draw 2mA. Power supply not included.
