The Tym Big Bottom VII

The new Big Bottom VII will be out soon. I've been working on this with Stew for some time now. It's basically the same idea as the original Big Bottom that was designed in conjunction with the late Dean Turner of legendary Aussie band Magic Dirt as an "effect" that could be put in your pedal chain to use guitar effects with a bass guitar.
Here's the original BB's description.
"The idea behind this great pedal is to split the signal coming from your bass guitar and send the mid to high frequencies through an effects loop to any guitar effects pedals, while keeping your bass frequencies clean. This eliminates the loss of bottom end that bass players would normally experience when using guitar effects pedals. You get a clean BIG BOTTOM and an effected main signal."

Operation is simple.
The guitar is plugged into the IN jack.
From the SEND jack connect a patch lead to the input of your effects pedals.
From the output of your effects pedals connect a patch lead to the RETURN jack of the Big Bottom.
The OUT jack is sent to your amp.
It’s that simple.
DO NOT plug the pedals send/return loop into the effects loop of your amp. The unit is 9 volt battery powered with access through the bottom plate OR 9 volt external power supply.

The Big Bottom VII will have the added advantage of a bypass stomp switch to eliminate the "effect" and send your signal directly through and also the very requested function of volumes for each "loop" giving the ability to "blend" the amount of each signal into the overall signal. This means you can have your effects on full and adjust the amount of that pedal is in the "mix" or if you'd prefer more bottom end to top end, just back off the treble side a little.

All profits from these pedals go to the Dean Turner trust fund for his family.
The BBII should be available from April 2010.
