Hooker's Green Bass Machine. One Control's first bass effects pedal was very difficult to produce. Development was slow and they were very close to giving up.
One Control was desperate. Yet, thanks to advice and feedback from BJF and all the people involved, they were able to complete the product.
The biggest challenge to overcome was the fact that guitarists and bassists feel things differently. While they pursue the best sound on the same ground, they do it in different ways. Understanding what they visualize was the toughest challenge for On Control. This pedal can intuitively reproduce the sound that bassists feel and imagine in their heads. When their indefatigable brain incorporated the sound created by the final prototype, there was no doubt that they had experienced something precious. This pedal is a milestone for One Control.
The tone you imagine manifests itself in this pedal.
As a guitar overdrive pedal
Hooker's Green Bass Machine was originally designed to be a bass overdrive pedal but can function as guitar overdrive pedal as well.
Its wide dynamic range covers the full range of the guitar frequency and creates various sounds from a clean sound after applying the highest quality compression available to a thicker medium overdrive sound. It’s highly responsive and its ability to express various distortions with the guitar’s volume control is beyond many guitar overdrive pedals. Its response is comparable with One Control Strawberry Red Overdrive and Anodized Brown Distortion that have the highest response level.
