Electro Harmonix Bassballs

Posted on 14/09/2011 by ozzy in Effects

Electro Harmonix Bassballs The Bassballs was featured in Roger's (and Andy Bown's) Pete Cornish Wall stage pedalboards and was used notably on Thin Ice and Young Lust.

This box is a typical envelope filter or auto-wah. Depending on the dynamics of your playing, the frequency filter creates a wah-kind-of-effect similar to the sound of vowels.

To control the effect you need just one potentiometer that determines the frequency range and one switch to turn on/off a fuzz type distortion.

Within their Nano product range Electro-Harmonix (EHX) recently released the scaled down version of Bassballs.
