Super huge, wholly fuzz with disgusting amounts of low end. It is sludgy yet still retains enough attack for faster riffing.

I recorded a jam and split it up into four parts to make a little demo showcasing the Meats range and also recorded a comparison clip of my Sonic Titan.

Pt 1 - Clean intro + Meaty Riffage
Pt 2 - Feedback / Drone
Pt 3 - Guitar volume rolled off 70%
Pt 4 - Sonic Titan!

Meathad Dark w/ 'Dirt' at about 3:00 > Marshall MG100 > Marshall 1960b 4x12 > Emperor 2x15
Great stuff!
Listening to it right now.
I'm glad that you had some clean guitar in the beginning for comparison,
so we can see precisely what the pedal's doing to the tone.
And man is it doing a lot!
That's wickedly kool tone.

What gets me is all the tweaking,
just crank that bitch and be done with it! -- duende

While working on my new song I decided to do a little demo of the Meathead Dark with a bass guitar.

Epiphone Thunderbird Pro-V -> D*A*M Meathead DARK -> Marshall MG100 -> Emperor 2x15 w/ Eminence Big Bens -> SM57 close mic'd center cone of lower 15" -> Cubase Essentials 4

Sorry for the lack of technique. I'm not really a bass player, I just use it for recording.
