Electro-Harmonix BassBalls Russian
Ah ... the Bassballs! Necessary because preventable, because the fundamental absurd, monstrous because a breeze. I bought mine a few years ago at a ridiculous price. After receiving it I plugged in, it made Grzviouh! and I stowed in a closet. Every time I emerged, the musicians of my groups I fucked outside the space. Snif!
Recently, after having unsuccessfully tried to get myself a fuzz pedal (an atrocious failure) I took apart my Bassballs to see what was in her belly. "But? What is this ugly little things in plastoc cheap? ... But ... they are knobs !!!???". I could not believe, EH hid the knobs control the wah and distortion in the beast! So I removed the dirty stuff, put real knobs instead (for my fuzz), drilled the box to get them out, also changed the power catastrophic, reassembled everything, plugged ... and ... yeah! I finally had something workable in front of me. Then drive Simone! The


Bassballs is a dynamic filter. If you tap on the strings, if we have a lot of treble, so it was very serious, if you stroke ... the sound will change a lot. Hence the importance of having access to wah and distortion knobs. After the sound is dirty, low-fi and hard to master ... but fantastic. It should be used once in a concert for 2 minutes but it star wars in a bunker Belarusian (with distortion). Attention however with the difference in volume mode distortion. It also produces a lot of feedback, so if you are facing his amp, it will ring for 2 hours. You can play with it and it's funny. I used to make tablecloths noisy, not to make riffs. Playing with the feedback I leave sounds incredible.
But beware young padawan, too Bassballs bassballs kills.


The sound quality?? Ouarf! Impossible to assess. You either love or hate. I love this side of hand and disgusting. Unbelievable that they released this thing on the market ... but it's great!


The pedal is the most absurd I've tried. After modification, but it is a killing to be used sparingly with extreme pain of being strangled by the other group members. I will use it tonight in a room of 300 people, no idea how it will react in this environment electro-static ... that is its charm:)
