Electro-Harmonix Battalion Bass Preamp & DI at a Glance:

  • 4-band EQ with bass guitar-specific frequencies for sculpting your sound

Sculpt your sound with a four-band EQ

The Battalion's 4-band EQ encompasses the frequencies that are most vital for bass guitarists: Bass affects frequencies below 200Hz, with Lo Mid providing boost/cut at 280Hz. Mid gives you boost/cut at 750Hz, and Treble tackles frequencies above 2kHz.

Add growling overdrive to your bass lines

You can achieve an array of distorted bass sounds with the Battalion, thanks to its MOSFET distortion circuit. This circuit's Level knob sets the output level of your distorted signal, while a Blend knob allows you to control the mix between dry and distorted signals. Crank up the distortion's intensity with the Drive knob and adjust its high end to taste with the Tone knob.

Inject your bass with extra thump and sustain

If you need more thump and sustain, the Battalion's compressor is just the ticket. It also evens out your playing, creating a balanced sound that really shines when employing slapping and other dynamic techniques. The compressor features its own push button, amount control, and LED.

Add growling overdrive to your bass lines

At Music Experience, we appreciate the level of flexibility that the Battalion offers. Three signal flow modes unlock a plethora of tonal possibilities. In the Pre EQ mode, the distortion section comes after the compressor and before the EQ. The Post EQ mode places the EQ after the compressor and before the distortion. The Dry EQ mode puts the distortion section after the compressor, but only your dry signal is affected by the EQ.
