One Control Hooker's Green Bass Machine 4K

Features

The HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K has the wide dynamic

range of bass tube amps and is able to pick up subtle

expressions while adding some love to the bottom end

of your tone. This pedal can also be used as an

overdrive pedal when paired with a guitar.

Bjorn's Description:


The Challenge

The biggest challenge to overcome was the fact that

guitarlists and bassists feel things differently.While

they pursue the best sound on the same ground,they

do it in defferent ways. Understanding what they

visualize was the toughest challenge for us. This

pedal can intuitively reproduce the sound that

bassists feel and imagine in their heads. This pedal is

a milestone for One Control.

The tone you imagine manifests itself in this pedal.

What does the "distortion effect" mean for bassists?

They naturally have different ideas depending on their

styla of play an genre.Yet, bass distortion effect

pedals, especially overdrive pedals, are thought to be

an extension of an amp simulator/preamp or onboard

active preamp.

In order to fulfill the functions of both an amp and a

bass, bass overdrive pedals tend to be

multi-functional and large in size due to an increased

pedals, especially overdrive pedals, are thought to be

an extension of an amp simulator/preamp or onboard

active preamp.

In order to fulfill the functions of both an amp and a

bass, bass overdrive pedals tend to be

multi-functional and large in size due to an increased

various other effects can be used effectively to add

color to music. Now, more than ever, bass overdrive

effects need casual usability like a guitar overdrive.


One Control HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K embodies

everything bassists need in its small body from the

bass amp features to tone and deep feelings.

The Sound

Bass tube amps are essential for an old school rock

sound. Nothing can beat the controllable tones and

feelings they create. HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K

gives you the tone and feeling of bass tube amps and

old transistor amps when used with a modern bass

transistor amp, which is common in many music venues

and studios. When HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K is not

in use, you can get a modern transistor amp sound. By

combining a modern transistor amp that is most

commonly used by contemporary bassists and this

small HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K, you can cover all

the bass amp sounds that many bassists seek.

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K has a dynamic range as

wide as a bass tube amp and picks up all the subtle

expressions that bassists create with their fingers.

Transitions between clean and distorted sounds are

smooth and it creates a gorgeous but stable

compression tone like an old transistor amp when you

increase the distortion.

It won’ t miss any finger touches and accurately

produces any groove from blues, fusion, or hard rock to

metal. Its moderately sharp attack and clear sounding

keys do not decrease the speed realized by picking.

With slapping, percussive chunks of sound by thumbing

pop up, and sound created by pulling can be maintained

and kept stable. The ability to freely control distortion

enables you to play in a relaxed and comfortable way.

For heavy tracks using a multi-string bass, the LOW

BOOST knob does its job.
 

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K has enough low-end,

but if it’ s not enough, adjust the LOS BOOST to

unlock even more low-end.

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K’ s TREBLE knob has

limited range to allow subtle adjustment. Many

music venues and studios have modern bass amps

equipped with powerful EQ and basic bass sound is

created using that. What is required for an

overdrive pedal is delicate sensory adjustment that

is impossible with amp EQ.


While a number of bass effects pedals have knobs

for blending and mixing, HOOKER'S GREEN BASS

MACHINE 4K does not have them. The distortion circuit

sometimes narrows the dynamic range and as a

result creates a “coreless” sound. “Blend” is

effective for giving "sound variation" in fuzz and

space effects but blending in bass overdrive pedals

is only supplementary to dynamic range. HOOKER'S

GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K introduced a dynamic

amplifier circuit that handles bass signals fully.

Thus, it does not create any coreless sound that is

impossible to distort and therefore the blend knob

is unnecessary. It also helped reduce the size of

the product.

If you absolutely need to blend for sound variation,

use One Control Mosquite Blender for blending any

effects.


HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K does not have a

balanced out connector. You can create a lively

bass sound with a line connector if you connect it to

a mixing board directly and use it as a DI pedal.
 

Guitar Use - Guitar Overdrive Pedal

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K 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.

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K creates BJF’ s

“trademark” unique solid dark European tones when

it is used as a guitar overdrive pedal. The frequency

range that also supports multi-string bass is ideal for

guitars tuned low as well as seven, eight, and

nine-string modern guitars.

High Voltage Operation

HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K operates under high

voltage when used with up to an 18V adapter. With

higher voltage, head room is increased to allow even

richer expression while reducing the gain slightly.

Although it's most effective for solo bass or guitar.

9V operation might give a stronger core when used in

ensemble or guitar riffs.You can change the voltage

according to your needs.


HOOKER'S GREEN BASS MACHINE 4K is an all-purpose bass

machine for any genre of music after the 1950s. If I had

to compare the sound to an artist, I would compare it to

Lemmy's iconic bass sound from Motorhead.
