The Battalion Bass Preamp and DI is a compact, flexible pedal that delivers powerful tone shaping capabilities in a rugged pedalboard-friendly package. The Battalion is loaded with features that will appeal to tone conscious bass players and includes a four-band equalizer, fully-featured MOSFET distortion section with three signal path options, a compressor, a noise gate and comprehensive I/O.

  • BYPASS Footswitch & Green LED – The right LED illuminates when the effect is engaged. The LED will not light if the Battalion is bypassed. Press the footswitch to toggle between effect on and buffered bypass mode.
  • VOL Knob – Sets master output level of the pedal.
  • GATE Knob – Sets the threshold for the noise gate. Turn this up to cut signal when no/little bass signal is coming through.
  • -10dB Pad Button – Press to cut the input signal by 10dB, good for active basses or other basses with very strong output signals.
  • EQ CONTROLS:
    • BASS Knob – Boost or cut low end. No effect when the knob is at 50%. Boosts/cuts frequencies below 200Hz.
    • LO MID Knob – Boost or cut low midrange frequencies. No effect when the knob is at 50%. Boost/cut at 280Hz.
    • HI MID Knob – Boost or cut high midrange frequencies. No effect when the knob is at 50%. Boost/cut at 750Hz.
    • TREBLE Knob – Boost or cut high end. No effect when the knob is at 50%. Boosts/cuts frequencies above 2kHz.
  • COMPRESSOR CONTROLS:
    • COMPRESSOR Button & Blue LED – Use this switch to engage or bypass the compressor circuit. The blue LED will illuminate when the compressor is active. If active, the blue LED will stay lit even when the entire pedal is bypassed, indicating compression will be active upon activating the pedal.
    • COMPRESSOR Knob – Determines the intensity of the compression. Turn up to increase the compression ratio.
  • DISTORTION CONTROLS:
    • DRIVE (distortion) Footswitch & Red LED – Use this footswitch to engage or bypass the distortion circuit. The Left LED will illuminate when the distortion is active. If active, the LED will stay lit even when the entire pedal is bypassed, indicating distortion will be active upon activating the pedal.
    • LEVEL Knob – Sets the output level of the distortion section.
    • BLEND Knob – Controls mix between dry and distorted signal. Add more distortion by turning the knob up.
    • DRIVE Knob – Affects the intensity of the distortion
    • TONE Knob – Cuts the high end from the distortion signal as you turn the knob down.
    • DISTORTION PRE/POST/DRY EQ Switch – Determines where the distortion circuit falls in the pedal’s signal path. The Battalion has three signal flow options when distortion is active:
    • PRE EQ – In this mode the distortion section comes right after the compressor (if active) and before the EQ. The dry signal blended in with the BLEND knob is the same signal that is fed into the beginning of the distortion section. In this mode the EQ can heavily affect the tonal character of the distorted signal.
    • POST EQ – In this mode the EQ comes right after compressor (if active) and before the distortion. The dry signal blended in with the BLEND knob is the same signal fed into the beginning of the distortion section, which is the output of the EQ section. The EQ’s effect on the distorted signal’s tonal character is less noticeable in this mode, but boosting certain frequency areas can drive the distortion section, affecting the amount of distortion.
    • DRY EQ – In this mode, the distortion section comes right after the compressor (if active), but only the dry signal that is blended in with the BLEND knob is affected by the EQ. The distorted part of the signal is not affected by the EQ at all.
  • Four-band EQ tailored specifically for bass guitar. Includes controls for Bass (below 200Hz), Lo Mid (boost/cut at 280Hz Mid (boost/cut at 750Hz) and Treble (boost/cut above 2kHz).
  • The Battalion’s distortion section delivers an awesome array of distorted bass sounds.
  • Distortion section features Level, Blend, Drive and Tone controls plus a dedicated footswitch.
  • Three signal flow modes yield unique tonal variations. Pre EQ, distortion comes before EQ. Post EQ, distortion comes after EQ and Dry EQ, only the dry signal mixed in with the Blend control is affected by the EQ
  • Compressor with dedicated pushbutton, amount control and LED adds thump and sustain to your bass sound
  • Noise Gate with adjustable threshold control eliminates noise and hum while preserving your attack and original tone
  • Flexible I/O allows the Battalion to fit perfectly in any bass rig or application
  • ¼" input jack includes switchable 10dB pad
  • Includes a headphone ready ¼" output jack plus a hardwired ¼" dry output jack
  • Balanced XLR output for use as a DI. The DI features dedicated level, bypass and ground lift controls
  • All-analog circuitry
  • EHX 9.6VDC-200mA power supply included
  • Current Draw: 100mA @ 9VDC
  • Dimensions in inches: 4.75(w) x 5.75(l) x 2.5(h)
  • Dimensions in mm: 121(w) x 146(l) x 64(h)
