OVERVIEW

A pedal developed with Billy Sheehan that has unlimited tonal options.

The Billy Sheehan Signature Drive pedal was developed by EBS in close co-operation with Billy himself. It is based on the concept of mixing together a clean signal with a distorted to be able to preserve low frequencies and find balance between distortion and definition.

Built-in Compressor
The option to add compression makes it possible to keep the note differentiation clearly audible even at heavily distorted sounds. There are three modes for the built-in compressor; High, Mid and Off. For the Mid setting, there's an additional trim pot inside to set the level. There's also a trim pot to set the Threshold for the compressor.

Clean Loop, Drive Loop - Endless possibilities!
The Billy Sheehan Signature Drive offers unlimited pre-post mix tone shaping by including a clean loop and a drive loop. It lets the user insert any other effect they wish within each loop to create your own signature effect! For example, connect an external EQ to the Drive Loop and shape the character of the distortion any way you want, or turn off the built-in compressor if you prefer to use a different type of compressor and put in the Clean Loop.

Controls
With the new extended size box from EBS, there are controls for Drive (gain for the overdrive engine), Tone (sets the frequency scoop for the drive), Level (sets level for drive channel post Drive Loop and pre final compressor) and Clean (sets level for the clean channel, post Clean Loop and pre final compressor).

FEATURES
  • Drive, Tone, Level and Clean controls.
  • Three Compressor Modes - High, Mid, Off
  • Clean Loop and Drive Loop (connect a Y-cable for send and return).
  • Type: Analog Effect, Mechanical Switching
  • 9V DC (Battery or Power Supply)

Comments about EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Bass Pedal:

I'd suggest watching the video review with Billy Sheehan as he does a great job of describing the pedal.
If you think you'll get his sound you are dreaming. Why you might ask...we all use different equipment.
The pedal does help me get a good blend of subtle distortion which is all I really want.
I don't play in a shred band or heavy metal but there's a quality to this unit as it brings in some distortion that works better than the alternative bass pedal I've sampled.
The only issue I have is the "Y" cable that you get with the pedal has silk screened labels on tghem that will wear off eventually.
I'm going to put labels used on wiring that I'll mark "I" and "O" so I don't reverse the cables.

    Comments about EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Bass Pedal:

    For me, this exactly filled the missing piece to the sound I was looking for. Along with my Tech21/Sansamp, I can get an extremely diverse set of tones and the Billy Sheehan pedal gives you that particular rock/metal sound like no other. One thing I noticed specifically was that harmonics (tapped, artificial, or natural) almost leap out of your bass. You really do get that Billy Sheehan sound from this pedal (now if only I could play like him...).

      I have so much tone control, especially being able to blend my distorted signal with my effected signal.

          Comments about EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Bass Pedal:

          I hate losing the bottom end when i try to get a nice gritty tone for soloing. But with this pedal I can get as dirty as I want without suffering any loss of on the lower end. I've been using it live and in the studio for several weeks ow ad it's a dream.

          This Pedal was exactly what I've been waiting for. It's well built too. Good job Billy!
