[NAMM] Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord
The new Fission Bass Powerchord FX Pedal, designed to let any bassist increase the power and complexity of their sound by adding stacked harmonies over their bass lines, is now shipping.
Through Fission’s set of controls and footswitches, four voicings pitch-shifted above the root note can be combined to produce power chords or octave-up effects.
Four footswitch LEDs are designed to provide visible indication of the selected harmony. When the effect is off, the LEDs dim, which make it easy to set up a harmony before playing the chord. Fission Bass also offers an adjustable noise gate, overdrive, tone and effect level. Available voicings are: Octave up, Octave up with 5th above, Octave up with 4th above, or octave / 5th / octave above.
Housed in a metal enclosure, Fission Bass uses 32-bit signal processing and 24-bit audio conversion and is 9V battery-powered (or use optional Fishman 910-R AC adapter). Its monophonic input can accept a range of pickups. The mix output is designed to be ideal for single amp operation and the effect-only output can be used to route the power chords into an electric guitar amp.
