Have you played an EB-0F?

Recommended Posts

The built in Fuzz-Tone sound kind of like an Electric Fart! [cursing] There is quite a delay in the attack, depending on how hard you pluck the string. It was kind of an odd combination that really didn't sell well. Only about 250 of these sold in three years.

Is that one yours?

Thanks for the info. Too bad it didn't sound good and catch on.

 

The bass is mine. I bought it over ten years ago. It is a bad refin. My intent was to restore it back to it's origional color, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

luv the fuzz on these, very reminiscent of Felix's brutal sound many years later with mega tube overdrive. 

a decade later, did you get'r done?

I did! A few years back I had it refinished at Dave’s Guitar Shop in LaCrosse WI. They did a great job! I guess it was done the year it turned 50.

What are the characterisics of this bass?

I see some controls additional to volumen and tone, but do you know what are they for?

Thanks

Andy

The bass is identical to an EB-0 of the same era, with the exception of a built in Fuzztone. The controls are the same as the pedal, but with a bypass switch. The basses all have the first variation of the Fuzztone in them, FZ-1. My pedal pictured is of a FZ-1A, the second variation with different transistors I believe. The pedal has a volume, the bass has an ON/OFF to save battery life. The volume on the bass controls the Fuzztone also if it is on.
