Human Gear Animato Clone

Flubless, Refined Fart Out and Clang Like a Dropped Spanner

You know that scene in The Matrix when Neo fails the jump test and faceplants into the asphalt (that's tarmac to us Brits)? Well that instant where he should be street pizza but is instead caught, sucked down, hugged and spat back up by the flexing road...only to slap his noggin painfully right back down onto the now rehardened road...well that's exactly how this pedal feels.

No matter how low you go, no matter how hard you hit it, it just stretches, flexes and holds your tone before throwing it back out there with JUST the right amount of sag...but then slaps it, like a wet-towel flick to the butt, with an edge that is almost Albini in it's brutal honesty.

The DRIVE here-in goes from warm prickly OD/distortion all the way to throaty bark. Like a real BARK. Almost yappy. It has a tangible aggression, even at bassier EQ settings. And that EQ? For 3/4 of the dial it finds and sweeps that prickly edge to the warmth, giving it just enough cut and taking out those flubbier freqs...and then it does the McClusky/Jesus Lizard/Shellac thing and hard-shelves that low, low end whilst carbonizing your upper mids into a metallic razor wire tone. It clangs with the best of them.

But there is refinement and balance to this instrument of bass brutality as the VOLUME pot actually shows restraint! This does not throwing huge amounts of boost at your amp/DI but instead adds a growing warmth and sag like peeing your pants on a cold and frosty day...and sweetening even the harshest of EQ dial-ups as it does so.

Then just adjust BLEND to taste/rig...and you have a TINY, TINY pedal...built like a tank...that gives you a threatening growl of OD...to a snarling bark of distortion...to a glassy gouge of sharp clanging cut. And a plethora of sonic stops in between.

This is pedal creation and circuit bending done right. Smart, sexy, robust and oh so surprising. Pure quality!

Good

Handles drop tunings really well, something other bass OD were struggling to achieve. Can get as low as I need without low frequency falling out or flubbing.

Great clone

This sounds as close to the original as i could find. Its got very nice saturation and the mix nob is greatly appreciated. You can get a nice farty, growly noise or a metalic industrial low end cut. Great pedal!
