The pedal is linked up to a Lehle parallel L, which operates as a volume boost to compensate for the Mistress’ slight volume drop. The Peavey Century 200 has an onboard «distortion» effect on the second channel. Like many of the older Electro Harmonics pedals, vintage Electric Mistress pedals are subject to inconsistent use of parts with varying quality.

The Mesa M2000 has a high gain switch that can be engaged with a footswitch. Fuzz bass, also called «bass overdrive» or «bass distortion», is a style of playing the electric bass or modifying its signal that produces a buzzy, distorted, overdriven sound, which the name implies in an onomatopoetic fashion. Clipping is a form of waveform distortion that occurs when an amplifier is overdriven and attempts to deliver an output voltage or current beyond its maximum capability. Lemmy Kilmister, the bassist for Motorhead, obtained a natural fuzz bass tone by overdriving his twin 100 watt Marshall Bass stacks.
