Mooer Flex Boost, boost pedal, 2.25 x 4.25 x 1.75"
About this deal
One of the best descriptions I read about this pedal went something along the lines of, fuzzy on the outside and warm on the inside. This is such an accurate description of this Mooer fuzz pedal. Mooer Audio Grey Faze Fuzz Vs Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mooer's bass graphic equalizer pedal. This is based on the Boss GEB-7, the bass version of Boss's famous graphic eq pedal. However, this is the bass version therefore both the Mooer graphic B as well as the Boss GEB-7 have a different frequency range to that of a regular guitar eq pedal. That is why it is recommended to run a separate dry signal to maintain the low notes of the bass. After all, that’s what the bass is there for! It makes no sense to me, to use a pedal that cuts out the very essence of what the instrument was intended for. Alas, I am biased due to the fact that I’m in a band with a bass player that has never used any pedals. Mooer Fog Bass vs Zvex Woolly Mammoth?

The Blue Comp by Mooer has a toggle which lets you select between "Treble" and "Normal". In the past, Boss had made the CS-1 with this toggle. Which is the first indication of it being a clone. Welcome to my full and comprehensive Mooer Clone List. Mooer Audio is a pedal company that produces a range of clone pedals. However, in recent times, Mooer has begun making original pedals, along with their famous and popular Mooer clone pedal range. These span almost all the different types of guitar effects. And, at very reasonable prices too. Making them affordable to guitarists on every budget. You'll even see some well known guitarists using the Micro Mooer pedals. There a lot of lists on the internet about this topic. However, none review them as in-depth as this.The Mooer Fog along with the Woolly Mammoth is like no other fuzz tones I have heard. A lot say you can get them to sound like Big Muff pedals. But I disagree. The Mooer Fog delivers a synth-like type of fuzz. Also, the words "snarly" as well as, "nasally" come to mind when I hear these pedals. At times, the sound tends to remind me of bit-crusher sounds.I know that there are many bass guitar players out there that swear by both the Mooer Fog as well as the Zvex Woolly Mammoth. I must be honest, I do not enjoy the sound of this pedal in general.
Mooer Flex Boost – Music Bros
Mooeris a company that specializes in themanufacturing of musical equipmentbased in the heart of Shenzhen, China. Their products aim to be both affordable and compact, so you’ll end up saving a lot of room on your pedalboard. This is a great pedal that I can’t say enough about. The only issue I have is with the polyphonic notes. So when strumming chords don’t always produce the best sound as a POG would. Having said that, it is great and I love this pedal.So how am I sure this is not a clone? There are two massive dead giveaways that tell me this isn’t a Boss clone. Firstly, the frequencies are completely different from the Boss. Secondly, the Mooer is a 5 band EQ whilst the Boss is a 7 band eq. Here is a closer look at the difference in frequencies between Graphic B and the GEB-7: You could perhaps use this on bass however I would not recommend doing so before doing more research on the topic. In my opinion, I’d recommend going for the SWEEPER pedal, also on this clone list. These spans almost all the different types of guitar effects. And, at very reasonable prices too. Making them affordable to guitarists on every budget. You’ll even see some well-known guitarists using the Micro Mooer pedals. There a lot of lists on the internet about this topic.

This modification is said to enhance the tonal capabilities of the Boss BD-2. Which is something I would have to agree with. Something definitely worth mentioning is that the Blues Mood also sounds great when used on the bass guitar. There’s a video down below which is a Mooer Blues Mood review. It also compares it o the Boss BD-2. But unfortunately, the BD-2 in the video does not have the Keeley mod.Mooer’s clone pedals are all very close to the originals they’re cloned after. However, in my opinion, this Mooer Blues Crab is by far the closest sounding pedal to the original that I’ve come across yet. Seriously, It was only until someone pointed out that the Original Blues Breaker is a bit more smooth sounding when compared to the Blues Crab that I noticed this difference. However, this is only barely noticeable and I’ve actually become fonder of the Blues Crab than the original Marshall Blues Breaker. This is such an incredibly good pedal and great value for money. Mooer Blues Crab vs Blue Mood There's no real scenario where one can justify the price of the Woolly Mammoth when the Mooer Fog does literally exactly the same thing. However, even though the Mooer fog is definitely more affordable, it's hard for me to find a need (besides for if I were the bass player in a Muse cover band) to buy or make use of this pedal. It's worth pointing out that the Zvex has a built-in gate which can be engaged by playing with the "pinch" knob. I'm almost certain the Mooer doesn't have this gate function although I could be very very wrong. Explaining this 3-way toggle switch, and this auto-wah pedal, in general, is very tough. Describing an auto-wah is immensely difficult to put into words. However, the video below should give you more than a sufficient look at this pedal as well as the tones you can achieve from it.
