Electro-Harmonix has announced a new bass effect, the Battalion preamp/DI.
One is in the post to us as we speak, so watch out for our review, but as a taster we can reveal that it’s essentially a multi-effects unit with a four-band EQ, distortion, compressor and noise gate, enclosed in a dual-footswitch chassis. The footswitchable distortion section features a blend control, and users can position it pre- or post-EQ, or have the EQ alter the dry signal only. It’ll cost you $147.80, or around £115 depending on economic conditions.
