Electro-Harmonix has announced the release of the USA-made Bassballs twin dynamic envelope follower for electric bass and guitar. This reissue faithfully recreates the look and sound of the legendary effect and is made in New York City.
Bassballs uses two critically tuned, sweeping dynamic filters that respond sensitively to attack variations creating shifting peaks and notches to produce vowel-like overtones. The switchable Distortion mode's warm harmonic distortion intensifies the overtones and deep resonance of the effect. The Sensitivity control determines how sensitive the fillers are to playing dynamics and lets the musician tailor Bassballs' sound to the output level of a particular instrument.
The USA-made Bassballs is housed in the original style steel chassis and comes packaged in a distinctive pine box. The USA-made Bassballs is available now at leading music stores around the world and at www.ehx.com. Suggested retail price, $130.00.
