The ABC-1 Anadime Bass Chorus employs a BBD (Bucket Brigade Device) analog delay line in an analog chorus effect specially tuned for bass guitar. The ABC-1 offers outstanding chorus sound for a variety of bass performance situations: from heavy low-end phrases through wide-ranging chords to solos in the higher register.
The High Pass Filter
A high-pass filter (HPF) provides extra control over the chorus effect in the lower frequencies, allowing stable pitch to be maintained in the low-frequency range even when a deep chorus effect is applied.
In standard "true bypass" circuits the instrument signal passes through two switch contacts when bypassed. In the Anadime Bass Chorus the signal only passes through one switch contact when bypassed (Single Contact True Bypass), for unprecedented signal quality as well as reliability.
A Double Contact Grounding Circuit ensures that the sleeve of the plug inserted into the output jack is grounded at two contact points. Increased ground contact area minimizes the possibility of intermittent contact, while also contributing to maximum sonic quality.
In addition to indicating the pedal's on/off status, the ABC-1 LED provides effective visual battery power monitoring. When the battery voltage drops below 7 volts the LED will become dimmer and begin to go out. The effect will still operate at this voltage, but to ensure optimum performance the battery should be replaced as soon as possible.
