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.

What is your opinion of this product?
This is a surprisingly useful stompbox. It has an octave up setting which comes on when you turn it on but you can also add a fourth down and an a fifth up. The tracking is outstanding. It never seems to glitch out. It makes every song sound like the first Jimmi Hendrix experience album where the bass lines are doubled with guitar. The power chord feature is a great effect, particularly on sustained notes. Great for a power trio.

amazing thickness - exactly what i was looking for.
What is your 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.
excellent quality. very solid. feels very solid.
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.
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.
excellent feel. a little on the large size but still single 9v.
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.

Fishman Fission Bass Powerchord FX
Solid durable case.
Great set of power-chord features. Most useful are 1 Octave Up, and 1 Octave Up + 2 Octaves Up + the 5th between. Also the ability to send the effects to a separate amp is great! Effectively, you can run the guitar signal to your guitar amp while the bass signal goes to you bass amp.
The effects signal is a little weak, even with the proper trim adjustment, but a clean boost can compensate for that.
Your general opinion of this product.
A great idea, but it doesn't really work well.
The effects signal doesn't track well at all, and can't always find the right notes. When you play moderately fast... it's like the box is trying to find the right note but just can't. When playing slowly, a 6/8 blues for example, the tracking is so bad that it's just not usable.
The tone of the effects signal isn't the greatest but is "good enough".
Well built.

fill in the 3 piece gaps
As I said built like a tank, been using it for 6 weeks, home, practice, and a couple of gigs, no problems... bought the a/c adapter so, I cannot speak to the length of battery life.
This unit is all about choice.. octave up .... add a 4th below that...or combine with or add the 5th above the octave... and to top it off a guitar power chord of octave above bass, octave above that, with the 5th in between... even has a separate output for the effect for a guitar amp
Honestly, the 4th, and the upper guitar chord sound fantastic, the 5th by itself sounds weak. What sounds like too much in the bedroom will get drowned out with the band, you have to crank the effect and it's fine... your INTONATION is key, if your off a little, it will be off, and sound like it. You have to hit the strings with authority and it sounds great... just barely touch the strings and you get a crappy metallic sound like a flanger with the regeneration cranked or a poor sound.
well thought out additions of a noise gate, which actually is more useful than you think, overdrive, blend from completely off to full bore screaming guitar to the point of feedback ala hendrix. Tone control and a effect level to blend from just a slight guitar on top to guitar way over the top.
Overall I love this unit... It's not perfect, but you can find ways to make it work with your playing.. If your off at all, pitch wise, so will the harmonies!! But to quote my drummer " wow, that sounds like a guitar player is playing with you."
construction and finish are flawless...even went to the trouble of silk screening the instructions on the back panel.
This unit is built like a tank....well thought out design...right down to the 9 volt battery wires, just slide it in.
