Overview

Want to improve the band's sound when your guitarist quits playing rhythm to take a solo? The Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal gives bassists the power to become a wall of sound. Three switches control parallel harmonies an octave higher than your original bass line with fourths and fifths also available. The results are power chord type sounds that track the bass without lag and are tweakable with overdrive to sound just like a guitar. The integrity of the original bass part is maintained with a choice of having the processed sound blended with the bass or routed separately to a guitar amp. Requires 9V battery or AC adapter.

Features
  • Unique design for bass players only
  • Generates octave above, fourth below octave, and fifth above octave
  • "Power chord" option generates octave above, with fourth and fifth above that
  • Battery or AC power ("global" adapter optional)
  • Tone, Overdrive, and Noise Gate controls
  • Mixed output or effect output only
  • Sturdy construction and footswitches

Not Worth It to Me

By 

from ATX

Comments about Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal:

I tried everything from fretless passive basses to EUB's through this pedal and all points in between, and I could never dial in a decent sound. As some have noted you have to be very precise and really hit the note pretty hard to get the pedal to duplicate the correct pitch. (and yes I adjusted the trim). Even then, if you happen to play something a little faster all you hear is a warbling car crash. I personally never heard a difference no matter how I set the noise gate, and the built in overdrive is cartoonish at best. Whether you run the signal all together or use the effect out and use a separate amp, this pedal has only 1 application in my opinion, and that is live and loud so no one will notice how bad it truly sounds.

Cool

By 

from Lebanon, TN

Comments about Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal:

I have found that this unit tracks very well and sounds good. I highly recommend putting the "mix" side through a separate amp however, to give more control over its tone and allow for adding effects. The sound is not perfect---I would not record with it---but is fine for live applications. The noise gate helps, but there is still a bit of a ghost note; again, live, no one will notice. For playing something like "Lagrange", it covers the rhythm guitar part well. I certainly do not use it on every song, but it is a very useful and usable tool.

Has Bugs

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal:

I think the concept is valid. I could really use it if it tracked better. It seems to be easily confused unless you are really pulling on the strings. Your technique has to be very clean; 1 note at a time-needs a tiny rest between notes. Hammer-on's are a bit of a problem as well. I also messed with and tweaked on it but the tone is just a bit cheesy for me to fill in with. Sorry to say, mine is going back. Perhaps the "next generation" will be a bit better.

Sweet For Trio's

By 

from Harrison, Ohio

Comments about Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal:

I am a rhythm guitar player who sometimes subs on bass. Usually that happens when our bass player can't play a gig....well, I think we don't sound as full as a trio....so I am glad Fishman made this pedal. I have already used it in practice and it worked and sounded great..still need to tweak the setup...I haven't used my larger Fender Twin yet in the guitar output...I will use it at our next two gigs this Friday and Saturday and see what some of our followers say about the sound!

Does what they say.

By 

from Ozark Alabama

Comments about Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord Octave Bass Effects Pedal:

This device replaced my chorus and whammy pedal for the same effects. Very powerful with the effects, alot more then I needed. Has just the sound needed to fill the void in our 3 piece combo. Thanks again "Fishman".
