The Bass Soul Food by Electro-Harmonix is a natural overdrive and clean boost for the tone conscious player to enhance the original sound of an instrument and amp while retaining their essential character.
Its gain stage, treble control and signal path are optimized for bass guitar and guitarists wanting extended low frequency response. An adjustable clean blend assures an articulate, full tone while boosted power rails deliver extended headroom.
The Bass Soul Food delivers a wide range of overdrive and clean boost sounds, and has plenty of volume to assert your place in the mix. It will give your tone a lift in all the right places!”
Selectable true or buffered bypass modes and a switchable -10dB pad for active instruments complete the package. Bass Soul Food runs on a 9V battery and ships with an EHX9.6DC-200 power supply.

DRIVE Knob – Controls the amount of input gain.
TREBLE Knob – Acts as a tone control. When set to 12 o’clock (50%), the tone is neutral. As you turn TREBLE clockwise from the 12 o’clock setting, the treble gain increases making your overall sound brighter. As you turn TREBLE counter-clockwise from the 12 o’clock setting, the high end is reduced giving you a bassier sound.
BLEND Knob – Sets the mix between your clean bass signal and the Bass Soul Food effect. When set fully counterclockwise (0%), the output signal is your dry bass sound. The DRIVE and TREBLE knobs do not affect the signal in this setting. When BLEND is set fully clockwise (100%), the output signal is the Bass Soul Food’s overdrive signal. Set the knob at 12 o’clock (50%) for a 50/50 blend of the dry and overdrive signals.
VOL Knob – Sets the master output level of the Bass Soul Food. As VOL is turned clockwise, the output volume increases. This control affects your signal level after the BLEND control.
PAD Switch (-10dB/0dB) – Sets the initial input level of your bass signal. Set the switch down for no attenuation, and set it up to engage -10dB of attenuation.
FOOTSWITCH and LED – The Footswitch selects whether the Bass Soul Food is engaged or in bypass mode. When the effect is engaged, the LED is lit.
Internal Bypass Mode Switch – included to select between True Bypass and Buffered Bypass.
