Bass Micro Synthesizer

Analog Microsynth

The Bass Micro Synthesizer has the same feature set as the Micro Synthesizer, but includes a trigger and filter sweep range especially tailored for bass guitar. The same fat analog synth textures give your bass a whole new range of possibilities: from percussive stabs to backwards-sounding bowed sounds.

Man, that thing’s got some low end. John Altieri, uses an EHX Bass MicroSynth on tour with David Byrne and with his own band, Red Baraat, while performing on sousaphone!

Posted 12/14/2012



John Altieri, is a talented tubist currently on tour with David Byrne and St. Vincent in support of their new album, “Love This Giant.” John has shown us that EHX products can be used with traditional instruments in creative, new ways. With the use of some imagination and Velcro, John has attached an EHX Bass MicroSynth and a microphone to his horn. As the sole bass player in the band, this allows him to manipulate the tone of his sousaphone to fit and fill all of the bottom-end roles.

The interview references Jack's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" -- which we also blogged about that a little while ago, copied below for convenience:

Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" as realized by EHX pal Jack Conte. It should be easy enough to spot the Deluxe Memory Man and Deluxe Electric Mistress, extra points for the Bass Micro Synthesizer.
