Balls Black Balls



The Black Balls is a distortion unit that aims to not suffer from the standard woes of distortion units. None of the thin, overly-compressed mush that is the standard in so many dirt boxes. It is loud. Hella loud. And dynamic as hell, so it can cut though the mix quite well. The drive control takes you from a clean preamp-like boost all the way to gritty gruff distortion, and gets you a lot of places in between as well. With the high gain distortion comes high end signal, and the Filter control is on board to help tone that down as needed. Instead of a traditional tone stack this one aims to just bring down the highs. This guy is GREAT for bass as well. One common problem with using guitar distortions on bass is the aforementioned compression. Basses just get lost in the mix when you give them too much distortion! With the Black Balls you can really dial down the distortion to get just the right amount for bass and still let it really shine through with a full band.
