bdkboss's review

By bdkboss, 24/12/2006
Analog pedal wah-wah type filter has a couple distortion
very solid metal housing


knob a "response" to increase the effect depending on the attack
distortion in which a switch is always on
we quickly made the rounds but there are also internal settings (look in the forums)
English manual but enough if you are bilingual


I love the sound of my bass with this
Now ... We like it or not


1 month and has the ball ca ...
EH had the good idea to redo the box while maintaining the quality!
I tried the digitech pa which is bad at all (lots of possibilities) May bassball keeps the sound which I prefer ...
New for 69 is great!

SO FUNKY ... but not only

ditto post pre


Plug & Play, two way

distortion: in fact the same effect in extreme!

after that is managed with the attack much you put in your fingers ....


The quality is great, and gives a big potato for good passage funky BUT NOT ONLY.

What I like most is how we can change the sound if it touches it then buggers if the strings.
Of shots with a simple effect you can have a range of sounds rather thin and "varied"

The only downside, when you put the knob to max effect there is a sound that little train and become downright annoying.


This is great!!
oh yeee! I think I could do without it
This is also a risk at the beginning I put all the time and the other group looked at me with suspicion, at least with some trepidation.

but well managed and well mixed with other effects, like distortion octaver + :) is mooorrrrrtteellllllll

Sound ... nano! At avoid.

True bypass and reduced appreciable size.


Sensitivity adjustment (necessary to make the effect more intense and also for the determination of the effect depending on the output level of the guitar used) and a switch to activate the harmonic distortion that made tenfold.



The "BassBalls" spirit is there but the record is thin and acidic. Acute can be a shrill clear sound ... look totally prohibitive for me. Its saturated, the sound is okay even if a serious loss of bass is felt.

That said a "sweet spot" lies beneath the hood but it takes a long grind both internal trimpots that affect the filter frequencies (200Hz and 800Hz).


I highly recommend this version of the nano in favor of the original. I've owned both versions and was able to very accurately compared before giving my opinion.
The basic version has a completely chubby with a good foundation in the low and deadly voice side. I changed the pedal to access the knobs on top of the case for total flexibility ... formidable even if we drift to the noise!
I preferred this dynamic filter the famous Maxon AF-9 and no less famous MXR M-82.
In summary, it seems pretty obvious that the nano series is far from being a success. I have chosen to focus on the sound format (though my pedalboard is full!). Like the Small Clone or the Holy Grail, EHX embellished reality by announcing that nano versions of these classic offers the same performance. Tip: run on the original version of the Bassballs!

Its nickel, quality blah

Envelope for low, its funky, analog (I think), connection jack


Simple to use: intensity of the distortion effect + if want. It was the sound you want in 30 seconds.


Great effects or when you want to slap a typical funky sound. I use it with a Fender Jazz Bass and Ibanez ATK 200.


I use it for 2 months. I have not tried other models, this is what sound I wanted. Price / quality ratio: not terrible -> pedal to work for a little while on AC and now impossible to connect. She no longer works with a battery. Surely a connection that is no longer. This is embarrassing. With experience, I do not know if I would do this choice even though I really like the sound it out ...
