Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
Envelope for low, its funky, analog (I think), connection jack


Simple to use: intensity of the distortion effect + if want. It was the sound you want in 30 seconds.


Great effects or when you want to slap a typical funky sound. I use it with a Fender Jazz Bass and Ibanez ATK 200.


I use it for 2 months. I have not tried other models, this is what sound I wanted. Price / quality ratio: not terrible -> pedal to work for a little while on AC and now impossible to connect. She no longer works with a battery. Surely a connection that is no longer. This is embarrassing. With experience, I do not know if I would do this choice even though I really like the sound it out ...

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
True bypass and reduced appreciable size.


Sensitivity adjustment (necessary to make the effect more intense and also for the determination of the effect depending on the output level of the guitar used) and a switch to activate the harmonic distortion that made tenfold.



The "BassBalls" spirit is there but the record is thin and acidic. Acute can be a shrill clear sound ... look totally prohibitive for me. Its saturated, the sound is okay even if a serious loss of bass is felt.

That said a "sweet spot" lies beneath the hood but it takes a long grind both internal trimpots that affect the filter frequencies (200Hz and 800Hz).


I highly recommend this version of the nano in favor of the original. I've owned both versions and was able to very accurately compared before giving my opinion.
The basic version has a completely chubby with a good foundation in the low and deadly voice side. I changed the pedal to access the knobs on top of the case for total flexibility ... formidable even if we drift to the noise!
I preferred this dynamic filter the famous Maxon AF-9 and no less famous MXR M-82.
In summary, it seems pretty obvious that the nano series is far from being a success. I have chosen to focus on the sound format (though my pedalboard is full!). Like the Small Clone or the Holy Grail, EHX embellished reality by announcing that nano versions of these classic offers the same performance. Tip: run on the original version of the Bassballs!

nicowaddle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Naughty Nano series!"

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
It is a twin filter with integrated distortion.
Basically it gives us a kind of very complex phase and provided that tingles the ears. Space.
To see what happens with the disto engaged, listening to "Sir Psycho Sexy" Red Hot.
Indeed most excellent for my taste but can not appeal and we must see it not used all the time!


A knob for level of effect.
An on / off switch for the distortion.
So far so good ...

on the other hand, we must take the lead in set two trimpots to configure the internal effect, which proves tedious. Why not bringing these settings especially as external, improperly adjusted, the pedal does nothing good?


I found the sound of this pedal great.
Until I burst my model by trying to put the knobs in place of trimpots.
To replace my pedal Bassballs I took a Russian and I realized that before I played as a usurper.
The Nano is a model such as its size: rikiki!
At the price where you can find real Bassballs secondhand (Russian or U.S.), close to the price of the new Nano, please do.
It sucks what with EHX Nano models.


Well, not bad but a pedal effects EHX was better before, and I am not a fundamentalist vintage!
