The BASS9 Bass Machine transforms any guitar into nine different basses without special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. The BASS9 features a new algorithm maximized for transposing one to two octaves down with superior dynamics and tracking.

The rotary switch allows you to select one of nine iconic sounds:
PRECISION: Pays homage to the iconic Fender P Bass[reg]
LONGHORN: Emulates the Danelectro[reg] 6-string bass, ideal for baritone style tones
FRETLESS: Features both electric and standup fretless basses.
SYNTH: A tribute to the classic Taurus[reg] Synthesizer
VIRTUAL: Lets the user adjust the bass's body density and neck length for a variety of bass sounds
BOWED: Classic bowed bass
SPLIT BASS: Makes it possible for the guitarist to play bass on the lower strings (all notes below F#3) and chords or melody with the higher strings.
3:03: A polyphonic salute to the sought after Roland TB-303[reg] vintage bass synth
FLIP-FLOP: Inspired by EHX's Octave Multiplexer, it provides a '70s style logic driven sub-octave generator that tracks without glitches.

The pedal is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls so guitarists can precisely tune their mix with the Effects output jack, plus an always-active Dry output jack that outputs the input signal at unity gain.

Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust specific parameters for each of the nine programs. For example, in PRECISION, CTRL 1 controls the sub-octaves while CTRL 2 imitates the original instruments tone control.

Closest StoreWinnipeg (Wall St.), Manitoba
In the media video , the pedal is run through a guitar amp , Played at low volume and not aggressive, your amp will be fine. The manual recommends that if you want to play louder , run the effect out to a bass amp. I've had mine for about a month and really dig what the pedal will do. Built EHX solid with usable realistic settings.
