EHX Releases the BASS9 Polyphonic Bass Machine

Today, Electro-Harmonix announces the latest addition to its popular 9 Series pedals, with the BASS9 Bass Machine.

The polyphonic effect takes a normal guitar signal and allows you to turn it into nine different bass tones. Like the other pedals in the 9 Series—like the C9 Organ Machine, B9 Organ Machine, and MEL9 Tape Replay Machine—the BASS9 promises instantaneous polyphonic tracking.

Unlike those previous releases, the BASS9 is designed for bass and sub-bass tones, offering a range that extends a full two octave down from your original signal.

According to EHX, the nine modes include:

  • Precision: Pays homage to the iconic Fender P Bass
  • Longhorn: Emulates the Danelectro 6-string bass, ideal for baritone type tones
  • Fretless: Features both electric and standup fretless basses.
  • Synth: A tribute to the classic Taurus Synthesizer
  • Virtual: Lets the user adjust the bass’s body density and neck length for a variety of bass sounds
  • Bowed: Classic bowed bass
  • Split Bass: Makes it possible for the guitarist to play bass on the lower strings (all notes below F#3) and chords or melody with the higher strings.
  • 3:03: A polyphonic salute to the sought after Roland TB-303 vintage bass synth
  • Flip-Flop: Inspired by EHX’s Octave Multiplexer, it provides a ’70s style logic driven sub-octave generator that tracks without glitches.
