EBS Bass IQ
Bass IQThe Swedish company EBS has existed since 1988.They've been specialising primarily on the needs of bass players, and even the staff members are all representatives of the bassists fraternity, so it's not surprising that they're actually developing products that make bassists' hearts beat faster.
Especially as far as effects devices are concerned, bassist were indeed most often neglected. A big problem has always been the fact that most of the effects are frequency clutter, in the very area where the bass guitar can least get over it, namely in the low frequencies. Precisely there the EBS effects are really unproblematic and they also have otherwise really interesting features to offer.
The bass IQ promotes less the intelligence of the bassist than its presence in funny fill-ins or solos. It is an analogue envelope filter or, as the saying goes, a car wah. From classic funky sounds to something really crazy - everything is possible!
