The EBS BassIQ produces sounds ranging from classic auto-wah effects to spaced-out ”Funkadelic” and synth-bass sounds. It is for everyone looking for a fun, fat-sounding, and responsive envelope filter that reacts to how you play in a musical way.
The Threshold and Attack control knobs set the sensitivity of how the pedal responds to your playing. The sensitivity is the key to creating a great variety of sounds from synth-bass, to wah-effects or sub-bass. A separate control changes the Q value to create even more variation in the sound character.
In the Up mode, the pedal responds with a wah effect. Turn the Q knob all the way up to get distinct ‘quacky’ wah sounds (like the HiQ mode of the old BassIQ). Turn the Q knob back for a more mellow effect. In the Down mode, you will achieve various types of synth bass sounds.
The three different types of pass filters, Full Range, Band Pass, and Low Pass, offer three variations of your sound at any time.
Trim pots are found inside to set the Gain output level of the pedal, a High Pass mix-in trim pot sets the level of high frequencies from the bypassed tone to mix in with the effect. A third trim pot decides the Range of the envelope effect in the pedals UP-R mode setting.
