The Malekko Heavy Industry Bassmaster is a Harmonic Octave Analogue Distortion pedal.

The original Maestro Bass Brassmaster octave fuzz is its inspiration

The 5 controls provide complete control over the tone, overtones, harmonics and mix of the dry and wet signal. True bypass.

1 review for Malekko Heavy Industry Bassmaster – Harmonic Octave Analogue Distortion

  1. Lewis S (verified owner)

    Its probably my favourite fuzz I own. It’s very synthy, very aggressiv. Being able to turn up the dry is really helpful for keeping the low end, and between the sensitivity knob and the switches there are lots of tonal options. The gate (if it has one) is also very musical, my sound never feels squashed or cutoff. Plus it looks great.
    My only criticism is its very loud, it doesn’t do subtle, but then I think that’s kind of the point with fuzzes.
