Abduction Videos

The Abduction:Bass™ may be the single greatest thing to happen to your bass sound. It was designed to enhance your low-end without sacrificing clarity or attack. With three completely different clipping sections, each with dual foot-switchable gain controls, the sonic possibilities are almost endless. The Abduction:Bass™ has two different sets of old-stock Germanium diodes at it’s core that add a depth and color not available from most bass overdrives. Also, with the addition of an internal ‘Kill’ voicing trim pot, you can truly customize your tone. So now you must ask yourself, are you ready for an out-of-this-world Abduction:Bass™?

All Tortuga pedals can be special ordered with custom graphics at a $30 up-charge. If you have an idea for a custom look, just let me know.
