The new Nano Bass Big Muff is the latest EHX bass guitar, effect pedal.
It delivers that huge Bass Big Muff sound in a nano-sized package. With
voicing inspired by the battle-tank green, Russian Big Muff and a
classic Big Muff Pi layout of Sustain, Tone and Volume controls, it
provides sounds ranging from a slight but satisfying grit to an
over-the-top wall of bass fuzz.
- Tailor your drive/distortion sound with Sustain, Tone and Volume knobs
- Features a Dry switch that mixes your dry bass, at unity level, with the Nano Bass Big Muff’s distortion
- True bypass for maximum signal path integrity
- Road worthy die-cast chassis
- 9Volt battery included
The Nano Bass Big Muff draws its roots from the legendary Sovtek
battle-tank green Big Muff Pi manufactured in the ‘90s as well as from
the original Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi from the early ‘70s. These Big
Muffs are often employed by bass players to thicken up their sound or
to give them over-the-top low end growl. The Nano Bass Big Muff takes
the best characteristics from both of these classics and employs sonic
elements that were specifically designed for your bass.
SUSTAIN Knob — adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion.
TONE Knob — provides a range of sounds from high treble to deep bass.
As you turn the knob clockwise, treble increases and bass decreases.
VOL Knob — sets the output level of the distortion effect. When the
toggle switch is set to DRY, the volume knob has no effect on the output
level of the dry signal.
DRY Toggle Switch — when set to DRY mode, the original dry signal
present at the input jack is mixed with the output of the distortion
circuit. The level of the Dry signal is constant and will not change as
you turn the Volume knob up or down allowing you to set the level of the
distortion effect against your dry signal. Flip the DRY switch to the
left, away from the DRY label, to mute the dry signal; now you will hear
only Big Muff distortion.
Footswitch & Status LED — When the LED is lit, the Nano Bass Big
Muff effect is active. When the LED is off, the Nano Bass Big Muff is in
True Bypass mode. The Footswitch toggles between effect and bypass
INPUT Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio input to the Nano Bass Big Muff. The input impedance presented at this jack is 110 k?.
AMP Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio output from the Nano Bass Big
Muff. When the Nano Bass Big Muff is in True Bypass mode, the AMP jack
is connected directly to the INPUT jack.
9V Power Jack – The Nano Bass Big Muff Pi is powered from a 9V
battery or you can use an optional 9VDC AC Adapter capable of delivering
at least 25mA to the 9V power jack, such as the EHX9.6DC-200. The AC
Adapter must have a center negative plug. The battery may be left in or
taken out when using an AC Adapter. The Nano Bass Big Muff has a
current draw of approximately 4mA at 9VDC.
