Grrrvvvvvzzzzzyouuuuuuuu!!

By moixjj, 16/10/2010
Ah ... the Bassballs! Necessary because preventable, because the fundamental absurd, monstrous because a breeze. I bought mine a few years ago at a ridiculous price. After receiving it I plugged in, it made Grzviouh! and I stowed in a closet. Every time I emerged, the musicians of my groups I fucked outside the space. Snif!
Recently, after having unsuccessfully tried to get myself a fuzz pedal (an atrocious failure) I took apart my Bassballs to see what was in her belly. "But? What is this ugly little things in plastoc cheap? ... But ... they are knobs !!!???". I could not believe, EH hid the knobs control the wah and distortion in the beast! So I removed the dirty stuff, put real knobs instead (for my fuzz), drilled the box to get them out, also changed the power catastrophic, reassembled everything, plugged ... and ... yeah! I finally had something workable in front of me. Then drive Simone! The

UTILIZATION

Bassballs is a dynamic filter. If you tap on the strings, if we have a lot of treble, so it was very serious, if you stroke ... the sound will change a lot. Hence the importance of having access to wah and distortion knobs. After the sound is dirty, low-fi and hard to master ... but fantastic. It should be used once in a concert for 2 minutes but it star wars in a bunker Belarusian (with distortion). Attention however with the difference in volume mode distortion. It also produces a lot of feedback, so if you are facing his amp, it will ring for 2 hours. You can play with it and it's funny. I used to make tablecloths noisy, not to make riffs. Playing with the feedback I leave sounds incredible.
But beware young padawan, too Bassballs bassballs kills.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality?? Ouarf! Impossible to assess. You either love or hate. I love this side of hand and disgusting. Unbelievable that they released this thing on the market ... but it's great!

OVERALL OPINION

GGGGGRRRRRRRZZZZZVVVVVIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUH!
The pedal is the most absurd I've tried. After modification, but it is a killing to be used sparingly with extreme pain of being strangled by the other group members. I will use it tonight in a room of 300 people, no idea how it will react in this environment electro-static ... that is its charm:)

Essential parcequ'inutile!

It is a autowah, all that is simple.

UTILIZATION

Super simple to use, two jacks (in put, output) and power supply!

1 button, which sets the level of the effect
A switch that lets you add a distortion

Where it thickens, it's inside the box, there are two small pots that are critical to the setting of the effect. The factory setting is not necessarily great, it is almost essential to modify the pedal to the "out" and thus have an effect completely exploitable (allow a few dollars of parts, and 1-2 hours if you do it yourself self) Alternatively, any TV repairman will do ...

For information manipulation. must be in the AF forums ...

The not'e is when the changes are made ...


SOUND QUALITY

It is a low impact, I use it on mine, it gives an undeniably funky side.

Therefore describe the effect is not easy, I can just give you some tracks to hear what happens ...

He has blatantly y'en on bass on "Sir Psycho Sexy" the 16th track from the album "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" Red Hot Chili Peppers.

It is not easy to use, you really manage the attack while playing. There is a sort of "walking underneath a way it sounds, on top of another, but it's interesting to exlpoiter ...

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a few years now and has taken an important place in my pedalboard ...

Be very careful because we tend to put too much, so really by the buttons below.

This pedal is really essential in the effects low.
