Includes controls for Bass (below 200Hz), Lo Mid boost/cut at 280Hz Mid (boost/cut at 750Hz) and Treble (boost/cut above 2kHz). The Battalions 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. The Battalion features all-analog circuitry and comes with an EHX9.6DC-200mA AC adapter - CONTROLS. 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. BASS Knob Boost or cut low end. No effect when the knob is at 50%. LO MID Knob Boost or cut low midrange frequencies. HI MID Knob Boost or cut high midrange frequencies. TREBLE Knob Boost or cut high end. 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.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 pedals 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 EQs effect on the distorted signals 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. In this mode you can heavily EQ the dry signal while leaving the distorted signal untouched, giving the option to simulate dual-amp or dual-channel bass setups.Either use the BLEND knob to mix between two distinct bass tones, or leave BLEND at max and use the DISTORTION footswitch as a pseudo channel switcher. The following signal flow charts illustrate the three distortion modes. These charts assume that the compressor is active if it is inactive that block is simply bypassed (replaced by your dry bass signal).
In all modes, the gates detector comes before the compressor, right at the input to ensure the gate opens responsively, while the gate itself comes after all other processing, to mute any possible noise picked up through the signal chain. The main VOL knob is a master volume, also coming at the end of the signal chain. INPUT Jack Plug your instrument or the output of another effects pedal into this 1/4 jack. The input impedance is 2.2M.
DRY OUTPUT Jack Use this ¼ jack to output a dry, unaffected version of your bass signal. OUTPUT Jack Use this ¼ jack to output the signal, dry or affected based on the bypass status. Plug this jack into an amp, another effects pedal, or plug headphones into this jack.
The output impedance is 220. XLR Jack Use this to output a balanced signal. XLR VOL Knob Use this to set the volume of the XLR output. XLR Bypass Button Push in to have the XLR output the signal based on the bypass state of the pedal. Leave out to output the dry signal regardless of the bypass state of the pedal.
Ground Lift Button Push in to keep ground connected to pin 1 of the XLR jack. Leave out to disconnect pin 1 from ground. 9V Power Jack Plug the output of the factory-supplied EHX9.6DC 200mA AC adapter into the 9V power jack located at the top of the Battalion. The Battalion draws 100mA at 9VDC with a center negative plug.The Battalion accepts Boss® and Ibanez® style AC Adapters capable of delivering at least 200mA.
