Electro-Harmonix Bass9 Bass Machine

Bass simulator effects pedal for guitar with 9 voices, dry and effect mix knobs, sensitivity and control knobs
MFR# BASS9

Product Description

The polyphonic Electro-Harmonix Bass9 Bass Machine transforms a guitar into nine different basses and requires no special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. It relies on the same technology powering all EHX 9 Series pedals, like the award winning MEL9 Tape Replay Machine, but features a new algorithm maximized for transposing one to two octaves down with superior dynamics and tracking.

A rotary switch allows the user to select the sound of their choice, as follows:

  • PRECISION: Pays homage to the iconic Fender P Bass
  • LONGHORN: Emulates the Danelectro 6-string bass, ideal for baritone type tones
  • FRETLESS: Features both electric and standup fretless basses.
  • SYNTH: A tribute to the classic Taurus 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 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 at 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 instrument’s tone control.

The BASS9 comes equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC 200 mA power supply.

Features:

  • Pays homage to nine of the best bass sounds ever
  • Tracks impeccably and works on guitar without mods, special pickups or MIDI implementation
  • Independent Effect and Dry volume knobs let you precisely control your mix at the Effects output
  • Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust specific parameters for each of the nine programs
  • Dry output jack outputs the input signal at unity gain
  • Compact, rugged, easy to use
  • Comes with an EHX 9.6DC 200 mA power supply

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
