I tell these guys that shit all the time. everybody thinks that 2 amps are better than one, but if they aren't in phase, it won't sound right out front.
Yes you are very right. 2 amps not in phase will ruin your bass. And bring up the issue of noise and ground hum. The trick to curing that is plugging both amps in on the same socket. Same with pedals in my experience. Amp and pedals power all on one surge protector gave me a completely silent amp. I'll have to read that link you posted, seems like its on the path to what that dude built.theblackman wrote:any preferred pedals for playing this stuff guys??

All of crumbchildz suggestions will you get you a sick doom sound. You honestly don't need the insane power amp (Sunn, Orange, Laney etc.) but they definitely help and will give you a huge fat tone to start with. Big muffs are signature doom pedal as well as the Rat. Catalinbred SFT is a great stoner/doom sounding fuzz/overdrive for bass or guitar. Zvex Wolly Mammoth would get you there pretty fast. Shin Ei FY-2 is a sick sounding fuzz which reminds me of Dopethrone except I know he used a Boss Hyper Fuzz w/ a Crate Full Stack. The guy from YOB had a black Ross Distortion and a Suhr Riot on his board when I saw them last year. My buddy and I both use a modified DS-1 to give some variation in sound from the Big Muff. I've played a blackface bassman and that thing cranked sounded like a doom pedal by itself! I couldn't believe the how nasty and saggy it sounded (it was plugged into a rare Sunn cab with alnico's which is probably part of it). Also check out the Overlord pedal! I moved from my SG to Japanese Copy Les Pauls. They are usually in the $100-$500 range for a 70's one. Beefed up my tone a whole bunch. I've been using a Greyface Concert Lead and Earth 440 Producer Bass Series recently rather than my Model T.

I've got some ideas- increase clipping caps, gain, etc, but I just want to know if anyone has any tips that worked for them. I'd prefer not to have to completely rework this thing, and a switch might be nice, as it's for a buddy who needs it soon. I'll probably start TBing this thing, then check back.

I'll try and get a schematic posted soon. my buddy ended up rocking it at the show and loved it. of course I want to keep working on it. it's the first muff I've worked on, and has really inspired me to do some more muff tweaking. I've got some ideas I'm looking forward to trying out.

I bought a couple of shirts to support them. Too bad I found out the next day that their bass player (Nick Oliveri) is a total douche-bag who beats his girlfriends...
