misteross's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" SO FUNKY ... but not only"

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
ditto post pre


Plug & Play, two way

distortion: in fact the same effect in extreme!

after that is managed with the attack much you put in your fingers ....


The quality is great, and gives a big potato for good passage funky BUT NOT ONLY.

What I like most is how we can change the sound if it touches it then buggers if the strings.
Of shots with a simple effect you can have a range of sounds rather thin and "varied"

The only downside, when you put the knob to max effect there is a sound that little train and become downright annoying.


This is great!!
oh yeee! I think I could do without it
This is also a risk at the beginning I put all the time and the other group looked at me with suspicion, at least with some trepidation.

but well managed and well mixed with other effects, like distortion octaver + :) is mooorrrrrtteellllllll

The effect is very particular, ay two filters that generates a kind of auto wah, but if we take an auto wah wah ca or not at all what his ... And all this coupled with a fuzz switch ....( mini ...).. suddenly it gives an effect Demant between an auto wah, flanger ... Finally, it's really nice ... It plugs into the 9 volt and is small (smaller than a boss) ...


The config is a simple archi knob to adjust the strength of the effect and then the mini switch to select whether or not fuzz ... over the two filters are stop adjustable with a small screwdriver to unscrew the back plate ... It really helps to have the sound we seek .. a little tinkering you can make mini pots on top of the pedal strokes with 2 drill, 2 brads and some glue .. This allows for easy access to settings and the two filters
( http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=336&u=11376036 )

The sound made is really cool ... Finally, to love ... is very funk, groove ... What ca balance!


Effects very effective either with or without the fuzz .. I use the two positions .... especially on my bass .... on the guitar I find the effect too acute in stride .... by lowering the filter 2 (F2) AC looks better on guitar ...
But it was made for bass so I put 10


I use it for one week at home ... by repeating .... she got a nice little place on my pedal board ...
The sound is just great ... I think the setting of the two filters is essential ... I do not think any such rule the EHX and so we can be disappointed if it is set incorrectly ...
Bought used 40 euros .... nothing to say, I do it again this election ... the size and standard power supply makes the difference with the model US or Russian ... As I tried to sound a Russian ... It is very very close ... I have not tried the two at the same time to really compare but I see no difference .... 10/10!

Everything has been said

I plugged in my Boss BCB-60 pedal. The nano works bassball parfaitemletn boss with the transformer. As discussed below, it is a little smaller than a boss pedal.

Its look is extra. it looks like a tin can.


Configutations quite simple. A knob to adjust the intensity of the effect and to enable a swithces distortion.


FFECT very original, its very clean. it sounds not at all synthetic.
The distortion is not bad when the effect is not too far. with greater effect this, the distortion is quickly draft.
I enjoy a lot with this thing.

I utlise with a Fender Jaguar bass.


- How long have you use it?
I use the pedal for about 1 month

- What is so special that you like most and least?
ben is the peculiarity of his that we love. original is great but not too weird. Sometimes after 5 or 10 minutes, I forget the four pedal is engaged and I feel that this is the normal sound. We realize that not bie ncompte désacrive when the pedal, but all that to say that it is a fact that the ear s'adpte very well ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

- How would you rate the quality / price?
excellent. Less than a BOSS.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, definitely

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
So ... Bass effect (although on a guitar I ask to try!) Whose purpose is to effect a "funky" your game .. That's basically the equation rsoudre for pe ... So a level knob for effect "call response" and two switches: one to activate the distortion and the other to activate ... the pedals! A to slide between your CHRE and tender ... Low and one output connector (amp, pramp ...). In short: config simple, effective (why 10,000 buttons for effect?), And especially allows to do without notice.


IDEAL! The switch pedals rpond well (albeit a bit noisy!). Well the switch is the bttn (the equivalent of a little switch in EBS): basically you can go as a nag, there's little chance that a coward! While the "pro" Boss say that made noise ... But good for playing the Red Hot funk, I doubt the amp is 1! Otherwise the rest works well. A transformer, two fingers (to turn the wheel) and presto! CA plays!


Ben fully satisfied with the bte! The sound is the well-Submitted ... While it is not very versatile. However, I must reconnatre qu'tant fan of the "sweetness" EBS (ie an effect that is quiet but well Submitted ...) I am surprised enjoyable! On the one hand rglage is effective, but also (in the case of a passive jazz bass) can be played on qualisation modliser microphone sound yet ... So the effect is the but you can choose exactly what you want ...

While hacking is a good little beginners! Add to the distortion and you have a palette of his rather impressive: a very funky wah-fuzz groove a EMDU the red hot ... In short what fun! Good for lazy sound, it is those who want beautiful effects rgls well with diodes across ... Well, it's the opposite! Basically, we grope around with the rglages but once we have understood, the foot!


I was looking for a personal pedals that allows me to "have fun" on a lot of songs but without having an effect too dnature the sound of the bass and especially without investing 300 euros. Done!

So if you are looking for a nice pedals tend trs "funky" but with tons of ways: dark!

I put the 10/10 pedals. On the one hand for the original sound, the other for all the (quality of manufacture, simplicity of use ...). All the pedals inconvnients, l. .. I see it!

Vbass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
This is the "modern" version of the bass balls. EHX has called a twin filter envelopes, which looks like an auto-wah couple with a flanger all with a filter and a distortion if you want.


Like other pedals of nano SERIES: switch on / off, one for distortion (smaller) and the knob for rgler the level of effect. It's simple, effective, and for the handyman can be opened and bte rgler both filters with a screwdriver.


As said below: the fun! The effect is truly dynamic: the more attack, the more effect, the lower are not at all crases dchire and his grave! It really is an effect that boost the sound and keeps a high precision.
Only default: the distortion is trslgre and is best coupled with an external fuzz ... like big muff and the switch is not noisy.


EHX is still to go. Despite the size that may sound ridiculous (it's smaller than a BOSS), the sound is standard! A report quality price dfie all competition in this type of product.

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
This is the replacement for the US Bass Balls so even characteristic Filter Wah / Phaser special ... Analog.


Very simple: A button and a switch to add a little fuzz! The manual then who cares .. It's not a Boss GT-8!
The knob adjusts the attack (response) and the fuzz mode switched it adjusts the volume I feel.


Qualitée The appointment is always like the old series, the sound is unique and top, especially with the fuzz switch triggers! It's best to add yet another fuzz over it and .... is the fêteeeeeeeuhhhhh.
I use it with a low of course.


I received it yesterday to replace my ex Bass Balls Russian and top it. The size is impressive, smaller than a boss! it looks almost the size of such a phone! And decision changed to a standard power supply boss, no more default, the price has not risen, on the contrary it is even lower, 10/10! Electro Harmonix As usual at the top!

bdkboss's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Nano
Analog pedal wah-wah type filter has a couple distortion
very solid metal housing


knob a "response" to increase the effect depending on the attack
distortion in which a switch is always on
we quickly made the rounds but there are also internal settings (look in the forums)
English manual but enough if you are bilingual


I love the sound of my bass with this
Now ... We like it or not


1 month and has the ball ca ...
EH had the good idea to redo the box while maintaining the quality!
I tried the digitech pa which is bad at all (lots of possibilities) May bassball keeps the sound which I prefer ...
New for 69 is great!
