New York, NY (September 8, 2016) -- Electro-Harmonix has released the Bass Clone, a chorus pedal with core circuitry that is nearly identical to the legendary Small Clone chorus, but with added features especially for bass

Chorus is a combination of modulated and dry signals. The Bass Clone’s Crossover switch cuts low end from the modulated signal so the pedal delivers a more accurately articulated bottom end with excellent note definition. The Bass Clone’s Treble control affects the whole signal while the Bass control only affects the dry half. Together with the Crossover switch, they provide precise sound shaping that lets the player achieve a tight, focused bass guitar sound with a well-defined low end and shimmering chorus on top.

The Bass Clone features a compact footprint plus true bypass switching for maximum signal path integrity when in bypass mode. It runs on a 9V battery or an optional EHX 9.6DC/200mA AC adapter.

How Jeff Tweedy, Nels Cline, and Pat Sansone parlayed a songwriting hot streak, collective arrangements, live ensemble recording, and twangy tradition into the band’s new “American music album about America.”

Every artist who’s enjoyed some level of fame has had to deal with the parasocial effect—where audiences feel an overly intimate connection to an artist just from listening to their music. It can lead some listeners to believe they even have a personal relationship with the artist. I asked Jeff Tweedy what it feels like to be on the receiving end of that.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.
