The gain stage, treble control and signal path of the Electro-Harmonix Bass Soul Food 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.

Now we want to bring that to bass guitarists and guitar players who want more low-end definition.

Very happy


I love this. I use it with my organ and it is perfect. Makes it scream!



Just the right amount of grit so far


I'm still exploring the tones that are available from this distortion. My preference is to get a box that responds to the way I attack the notes... dig in and get distortion; lay back and it gets clean. So far, I'm pretty close with this box. I'm also noticing that there may be a little bump in the midrange, which helps drive the sound. If you're looking for extreme dirt, this may not be the right box for you.



Just the right amount of drive


This pedal has just the right amount of grit I've been looking for. It can be as subtle as you want it. Can also do a clean boost just fine. I use the Blend & Drive at 3:00. I put the Treble knob at around 9:00. I'm using a USA G&L SB-2 with flat wounds. This thing has plenty of tones in it. I'm sure you'll find at least one you like. I was considering MXR's Bass Overdrive & Bass Fuzz pedals, but the Bass Soul Food sounds so much better to me. It's cheaper too! This is my first EHX pedal that Ive purchased. Very pleased with it.
