Overview

A trio of ground-shaking bass overdrives in one convenient stomp.

Get down and dirty with the AfterShock Bass Distortion. Out of the box, this stereo pedal delivers three bass overdrive engines that span the gamut of low-end crunch, from smooth and natural overdrive to full-on fuzz attack.

The AfterShock Bass Distortion's Tube engine belts out a subtle, but powerful vintage tube overdrive with a smooth breakup and plenty of punch. Heavy creates an aggressive scooped sound with ample highs and thundering lows. The Fuzz engine offers intense germanium fuzz tones with loads of bottom and mucho grit.

The Aftershock’s simple, yet powerful control panel provides the tools to finely sculpt the perfect bass tone. The Clean knob lets you to mix in just enough clean signal to maintain a rock-solid low end without compromising the pedal’s sonic growl. Adjust the onboard Tone control and find that thunderous sweet spot for any bass/amp combination.

By itself the AfterShock offers tremendous tonal range, but dig a little deeper and discover its hidden power and flexibility. Every pedal in the One Series line is compatible with the Neuro Desktop Editor and Mobile App (free downloads iOS, Android, Mac and Windows). Connect the AfterShock to the Neuro Editor and access its extended equalization capabilities, stereo routing options, as well as Source Audio’s free library of over 40 overdrive, fuzz and distortion algorithms for bass and guitar—each algorithm can be downloaded directly to the pedal.

The Aftershock is also built on dual-drive platforms providing the opportunity to simultaneously run two fuzz tones in parallel, stacked or split in stereo. Plus, every One Series pedal is fully MIDI compatible when coupled with the Neuro Hub (formerly Soundblox Hub and sold separately), providing the power to save up to 128 different presets.

Features

  • 3 presets: Use Preset Mode to save a different preset to each of the three toggle switch positions—when the pedal is engaged, all of the parameters instantly jump to their saved value, regardless of the knob positions
  • Stereo input and output jacks: Distort upstream stereo signals, split a mono signal to dual outputs, or use the additional in and out as an external effects loop
  • Stackable drive engines: Dual drive engines and stereo inputs and outputs make it possible (via the Neuro App) to stack any combination of drive engines in either series or parallel as well as split the signal and send a separate drive engine to each of the pedal’s outputs
