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.
