The Electro Harmonix Bass Preacher Compressor Sustainer Bass Effects Pedal is the perfect pedal for tightening up your tone without compromising on quality. Compression is the ideal tool for modifying the sustain and attack of your tone, allowing you to emphasis the sound of you pick hitting the strings, or create a thick and saturated tone that is swelling with energy. From small to large adjustments, you can add depth to your tone without affecting its unique character. Whether you want to inject more 'slap' into your slap technique, or give your lead tones more legs, then the Bass Preacher is set to become your new best friend.
Complements any pickup arrangement
The Bass Preacher has been designed to cater to the needs of bassists who have either an active or passive powered instrument. The varying output levels are matched thanks to the -10dBu to +2dBu input sensitivity, so you can rest assured that no matter what setup you have, your tone will remain crystal clear.
The control layout is delightfully simple, and belies the power that lies within this little beauty. The Volume control allows you to adjust the amount of makeup gain. With a maximum gain reduction of 21dB on offer, the Volume knob can be adjusted to cut, match, or boost the output signal in relation to the input signal. The Sustain knob sets the amount of compression that influences the signal. The Attack toggle switch set the timing of the attack/decay curve, with the available options of Fast/Medium/Slow. In Fast mode, the level of compression set using the Sustain knob engages as soon as a note is played. In Slow mode, the effect engages in a more leisurely fashion, allowing more of your bass' tone to flow through. Med provides a happy balance between Fast and Slow.
The Bass Preacher is engaged via the footswitch, which has a corresponding LED indicator. When the switch is engaged, the status LED is illuminated, and when the pedal is in bypass mode, the LED will not light. Thanks to true bypass technology, when the Bass Preacher is not engaged, your signal remains unblemished by the pedal’s circuitry. All you need to get you going is a 9V battery, or a corresponding 9VDC power supply, which can be connected via the power jack input.
As we’ve come to expect from the team at Electro Harmonix, the Bass Preacher is built like a tank, and is more than capable at handling life on the road. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or simply looking to jam along to your favourite songs at home, what better way to give your tone the boost it deserves than with the Bass Preacher Compressor Sustainer Bass Effects Pedal.
