Electro-Harmonix Introduces the Bass Clone Chorus Pedal

A chorus pedal with core circuitry that is nearly identical to the legendary Small Clone chorus.

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.

The Danelectro Nichols 1966, in spite of its simplicity, feels and sounds like a stompbox people will use in about a million different ways. Its creator, Steve Ridinger, who built the first version as an industrious Angeleno teen in 1966, modestly calls the China-made Nichols 1966 a cross between a fuzz and a distortion. And, at many settings, it is most certainly that.

Keep your head down and put in the work if you want to succeed in the gear-building business.
