Product Description

The Fishman Fission Bass lets any bassist lay down beds of power by adding stacked harmonies over their bass lines. The Fishman Fission Bass Pedel uses an intuitive set of controls and footswitches to produce powerchords or octave-up effects. Several combinations of octaves, 4th and 5th above the root note combine to produce these effects.

Fishman Fission Bass Octave Pedal Features:

  • Creates stacked harmonies above the root note
  • Octave up
  • Octave and 5th up
  • 4th and Octave up
  • Octave up, 5th up and 2nd octave up
  • Unique footswitch LEDs let you 'see' the harmony before you kick it on
  • Noise Gate control
  • Overdrive control
  • Tone control
  • Effect Level control
The four footswitch LEDs give you visible indication of the selected harmony. When the effect is off, the LEDs dim making it easy to set up a harmony before you kick on the chord. It's also a multi-effect pedal with up to 3 voices of harmony, adjustable noise gate, overdrive, tone and effect level. This power-effect combo gives you creative control over anything from subtle octaves to thick, grinding effects that even your guitar player will envy.

Housed in a lightweight, yet sturdy metal enclosure, the Fishman Fission Bass Octave Pedal uses state-of-the-art 32-bit signal processing and 24-bit audio conversion. Its monophonic input accepts a wide range of pickups. The mix output is perfect for single amp operation and an effect-only output for feeding a dedicated guitar amp.

amazing thickness - exactly what i was looking for.
What is your overall opinion of this product?
very very well made. meticulously packaged as well. this is a professional audio processing effect that is best suited for experienced musicians. it reflects your playing. beginners may not be pleased at hearing their off playing in chord form.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
excellent quality. very solid. feels very solid.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
great set of features. i like the ability to mix the output of the clean or effected signal or send it to a board with separate outputs for each. could use more tone control if you are using the overdrive function and as well it would be nice if an onboard fuzz/distortion was added.. but that can easily be added with another pedal.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
the sound is incredible. i am using it with a cello and it really thickens it up - i can play nice etherial leads to metal percussive rhythms with it. the trick is to balance the clean and effect output as if you do not, the effect out adds some gain and will overpower the clean and you will lose the original note value in the mix. it is also important that the instrument has a strong signal for the best tracking - also best to not use too many open notes as these sometimes continue to play as you move the nest note and can confuse the unit, as expected because often a dissonant chord is created in the overtones. it responds to how you play, so if your playing is off, it will sound off - it does not cover up bad playing like many effects.
Are the controls logically laid out?
excellent feel. a little on the large size but still single 9v.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
it may seem pricy but that is would you pay for having top end digital audio converters in it. it is basically a very dedicated computer. it is well worth it if you value your sound above all.
