The Electro Harmonix Bass Metaphors Guitar Effects Pedal is a one-stop shop to give your bass tone everything it needs to shine in the studio or on the stage. The single channel strip design makes it very intuitive to use, whilst the all-in-one design is great for those who want to save space on their pedalboard.

Ultimate tone control

As noted above, the control layout of the Bass Metaphors is designed to make it simple and efficient to use, with exceptional flexibility at your fingertips. Across the top, you'll find individual Gain controls for dry and distorted settings, along with a two-band EQ that has its own EQ level. The distortion can be activated via its independent footswitch, allowing you to kick it in and out as and when you please. The EQ section allows you to deftly attenuate Treble and Bass frequencies, which allows you to saturate the low-end for a fat and thick bass tone. Alternatively, you can tighten up the low-end and make the upper harmonics pop out, and take your tone anywhere in-between.

There is a volume (blend) knob for seamlessly mixing the effected signal with your dry bass tone, allowing you to carefully craft your sound. Beneath the channel-strip of knobs you'll find a mini toggle switch that actives or bypasses the internal compressor, furthering tightening up or fattening out your tone.

Connectivity and signal routing

The Bass Metaphors has a standard 1/4-inch jack input for connecting your instrument. However, it is equipped with a trio of outputs for you to choose from: a direct out; a balanced/unbalanced output, and an XLR output for DI-ing your bass to a mixing desk or amp. The amount of signal routing options at your disposal makes this a great option for those recording at home, in the studio, jamming or performing with friends, small-/medium-/large-sized gigs - pretty much every situation you can think of.

Solid EHX build quality

As we've come to expect from the team at Electro Harmonix, the Bass Metaphors Guitar Effects Pedal is built to last. The tank-like chassis is made using lightweight aluminium that gives it a durability and resilience that is a must for touring artists and studio players alike. Every pedal is supplied with a 9V power supply, so you're good to go as soon as it arrives.
