A compact compressor/sustainer designed specifically for bass.

New York, NY (January 18, 2016) -- Electro-Harmonix (Booth # 5396) announces the introduction of the Bass Preacher, a compact compressor/sustainer designed specifically for the powerful low frequencies and massive dynamic range produced by the modern bass guitar.

The Bass Preacher’s input sensitivity ranges from -10 dBu to +2 dBu making it an ideal fit for both passive and active basses of varying output levels. Its Sustain knob controls the amount of compression and the pedal features an Attack toggle switch that changes the timing of the onset of compression. Three selectable settings are provided: Fast, Medium and Slow. In Fast mode the compression engages immediately and produces an intensely squashed sound. In Slow mode the compression engages more slowly, allowing more initial transients to come thru. The Medium mode is a compromise between the two attack envelopes.The Bass Preacher produces a maximum gain reduction of -21 dB and its Volume control lets the user adjust the amount of makeup gain to cut, match or boost the outgoing signal in relation to the incoming one. The Bass Preacher features true bypass switching to maintain maximum signal path integrity when the pedal is in bypass mode. Power is via a 9V battery or an optional EHX9.6DC-200mA power supply available. The pedal carries a U.S.A. List Price of $105.50 and is available now.

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
