Nemphasis Steam Bass - Bass Analog Chorus



The Nemphasis household would have not been complete without the most classic and beautiful modulation pedal for electric bass.

Steam Bass : the analog chorus built without compromise so as to be able to satisfy even the most demanding of bass players!

The sound is extremely focused, controlled and dynamically not to miss even the smallest detail of execution, but at the same time fascinating and “dreamlike” thanks to the analog circuitry and the use of a Bucket Brigade device.

Finding your sound is easy with the efficient controls on the Steam Bass.

In addition to the classic Speed and Depth controls, the Steam Bass has an FX Level knob allowing for a fine adjustment of the amount of the effected. This permits you to range from a hint of chorus, to a loaded and vibrant sound, well appreciated by experimental and ambient music lovers. Yet we were not entirely satisfied as we wanted your bass to retain precision at extremely low frequencies. This was achieved by means of the “HPF” – High-Pass Filter – switch through which you can select the frequency point of the high-pass filter with a slope of 6db/oct connected on the effected line path: L for less bass frequency attenuation, H for more bass frequency attenuation.

Steam Bass? Demanded by your pedalboard.
