lot of abbreviations there

Electro Harmonix Knockout Attack Equaliser pedal is the subject here.



for those of you who dont know, this little fella is a high pass filter and a low pass filter with a wet/dry blend knob

i've had this for a while and have been using it with great success on my electric guitar board but i thought this deserves a thread here after i tried it out proper at band practise on bass.

im using a MIM jazz and a Marshall MB4210 btw which we're not here to discuss

i was pretty damn happy with my tone previous to this addition but after playing loud for 3 hours with this thing im totally impressed

enought of the waffle

this really smoothens out the tone, makes it much deeper, and punchier, i'd imagine this would work wonders with a P bass, enabling many more tones to be got at.

im playing in a rythm and blues band, it sounds just right. the bass sits much better in the mix now, much more rounded tone.

yea ok that was vague but i did my best

i just thought this was a reletavely unknown little gem which makes for some really distinctive sounds. and for £40 i couldnt say no

so now you know =]

EDIT: forgot to say!

i find it adds bass and treble in a unique way because of the filtering, it doesnt muddy it up, it adds it nice and naturally

No..it's just...not a word...

Smooths is a word...but not smoothens...just made me chuckle a bit.

Otherwise, the pedal sounds bitchin'. I've always admired EHX

i heard it wasnt

like, you hydrate, then you dehydrate, then if you drink more water you just hydrate again, regardless of previous states of (de)hydration

or so i hear i thought it was retarded anyway

THE PEDAL TALK ABOUT THE PEDAL NOT WORDS THE PEDAL

i think i steered this back on track nice and subtly

I was thinking about getting this a while back. You say you are in a Rhythm and Blues band, but do you think this would work for getting a nice treble-ly sound?

Smoothens?


Language changes all the time, plenty of online dictionaries cite "smoothens" as a word and 200 years ago double-negatives were considered standard grammar. There's little to no point in being a language purist.

Anyway, I was pretty impressed hearing this pedal with a 6-string running through, I hadn't realised it was a bass pedal.

sure, the filters are pretty powerful, you can get a nice upper mids/treble boost

^its one of those ambidextrous bass and guitar styley pedals like the big muff or something

Apart from the fact the Big Muff murders low end. The Q tron would have been a better example.
