Electro-Harmonix Bass Soul Food Overdrive Boost Pedal

Channeling the highly sought-after Klon-style distortion, the Bass Soul Food drives home beefy, organic overdrive that sounds great for both bass and guitar.
The Electro-Harmonix Bass Soul Food 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.

EHX Founder and President, Mike Matthews, stated: "Our Soul Food put 'Klon-like' transparent overdrive into the hands of players at an unprecedented price point. Now we want to bring that to bass guitarists and guitar players who want more low-end definition. 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 a EHX9.6DC-200 power supply.

"Just What I Needed"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've tried several other bass boost/distortion pedals, but they were always too "harsh" or "metal sounding." They were good for that sound (grind, dirt), but it was too much for me. After reading the review on this pedal, I decided to try it. After three days, I'm thrilled! The clean boost is just that, the distortion goes from very smooth to the raunch some people like (but I don't). This pedal is perfect for setting up a boost/smooth distortion that is perfect for soloing with just that little extra edge on it. The tone control set on higher treble can also boost the upper-register tones on leads. It works, with some tweaks, on everything from my '70 P-bass to my Carvin Icon 5 fretless to my Ibanez 3006 6-string. I recommend this pedal very highly. If you want warm, tasteful distortion for your bass, this is the way to go. I'm a 30+ year Boss user, but this eats the Boss Bass Distortion alive for smoothness and taste.
Musical Background:
I've played bass professionally (if by that you mean getting paid) since 1975.
Musical Style:
Rock, fusion, blues.
