Ground & Pound” and is a bass distortion pedal designed to emulate Justin Chancellor’s (Tool) Turbo Rat into a Boss bass EQ sound. He uses these two pedals in his chain as an always on effect.
The Ground & Pound was designed with this in mind but it can do so much more despite its simple control layout.

With the addition of the EQZ tilt control (centered around 250Hz), borrowed from the “Alma Comp” design,
it allows for adding some serious bottom end to the distorted signal while attenuating the higher
frequencies, or, on the other hand, to add some grit to the top end while attenuating the lower frequencies.
When the EQZ pot is at 12, there is no colouring of the sound, when turned clockwise, frequencies above
the tilt point get boosted while the ones below get attenuated.

Anti-clockwise, the frequencies below the tilt point, get boosted while the ones above get attenuated.
The “MIX” control, allows the player to mix the “clean” signal with the distorted signal with an interesting
twist. The clean signal, actually, has very light compression (2:1 ratio) which adds feel to the playing and
mixes very well with the distorted signal, giving it somewhat of a tube amp vibe when playing. The
compression is borrowed from our Alma Comp design and it adds to the experience of playing, without
colouring the tone too much.

The Ground & Pound, despite its origin of concept, is very versatile, when combining all the provided
tools for tone shaping. It shines when using a pick and digging into the strings at lighter gain settings or it
can smash your face in when using it at higher gain settings with both finger style and pick.
