A multi-function pedal that every rock bassist needs.

The Electro-Harmonix Bass Metaphors Compressor Pedal has a distortion design that melds carefully selected compression with bass-specific EQ. You get tonality structure for your bass with a rock solid foundation. The Bass Metaphors pedal's channel strip design makes for easy setup and deadly tone. 1/4" and XLR inputs and outputs let you go to your amp and directly to the board for recording. The dry knob lets you control how much dry signal is present at output. The compressor adds sustain and smoothes out the signal from your bass.

    1/4" AND XLR Inputs and Outputs

    I was a bit skeptical because I have been looking for a good Bass overdrive for years and everything I tried had something wrong with it, ie; too thin, too boomy etc. The overdrive with the eq on this thing lets you dial in exactly what you need! plus if you are just looking for a good D.I. box this does that perfectly too! This pedal has far exceeded my expectations and is a bargain as well!

  • It's ok

    As reviewed by Christopher Carpenter on 3/12/2013

    Definitely don't think this thing is worth 125 bucks, I guess it eases my annoyance some that I got it from GC used for about half price, which is about what it is worth. It works with some of my basses, not with others. Hurts as much as it enhances. I know that is vague. I do think it's worth the time to give it a shot. You can always return it. Generally speaking, the distortion is pretty terrible in all cases. If you turn the volume pass noon, you start to get a beautiful hissing sound. (sarcasm) And I really didn't hear an effective mix of the effect until I turned the dry signal to about 3 o'clock. The EQ is really the only section universally good in my opinion. I think 4 stars is fair, like I said, it annihilates the tone of some of my basses, and it really helps with others. Maybe you will be a person this pedal works for.
