    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    This pedal is awesome! I'm a finger-style bassist and I wanted more punch/zing or whatever... and I got it with this pedal! The reason I added "pretty much everything" to the Best Uses section is because its not like really obvious like an overdrive or something, it just adds more awesomeness to your sound :). Think Steve Harris or Geezer Butler type sound. Great pedal!

    A touch too much

    By spenman1223

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    This effect gives a flat sounding amp a sound reminiscent of a GK 800RB. Punchy and cutting but still fat. Subtle setting MUST be used or else you will be hissing and slicing all over the place. I set mine with the level at about 9-10 o'clock and response around 3-4 o'clock. I use the extreme response setting because this unit works like a reverse compressor. Quiet notes remain unaffected while louder notes get boosted. So if you hit a string harder than you should, its that much more noticeable. It is very unforgiving. I set the responce so high so that almost all of my notes have the effect, but a very small amount of it. If used subtly, this is a fantastic product for a bassist seeking a more cutting sound.

    Awesome Pedal!

    By Robb H.

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    I bought this pedal because I needed more off of my high-end without compromising my lows, as well as more cut all around through the mix. And you know what? This pedal did all of that! Very easy to use, and fun to play around with. Because it's only two knobs its easy to change on stage between songs for your needs and I wouldn't gig without it!

    Steel Leather

    By Z

    from FL

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    For the longest time it was impossible for me to get excited about playing bass. This pedal is going to make me wreck my hands from playing it so much.Your feedback, squeaking strings, etc. are a thing of the past with this pedal when it's used properly. And you no longer have to slam your strings and frets to get a good transient or top end. You can get pick sounds with your fingers or vice versa, or add some of the edge back to that fuzztone that's making you sound muffled. And you get all these sounds so easily, it's definitely inspiring to play more.If this doesn't have enough options for you, try the EHX Knockout. It doesn't do the same thing (not even close) but it is similar in its ability to turn decent sounds into great ones. And if you love awesome tone and love turning knobs, get 'em both.

    It's on most of the time

    By bottomfeeder-ATBAy

    from Central Illinois

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    A great pedal for defining the bass attack. I keep both my knobs at 9:00 at it's just enough to put a little high frequency on the attack to define it. If you're in it for novelty sounds you'll probably be disappointed.

    Grrreat!!!

    By The -ZcQj5

    from Longview, Texas

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    Ok, this thing is pretty sweet and adds a great definition to the notes you want it to respond to. It has only 2 nobs and is pretty much idiot proof. If I could explain in words how it souds it would be a drive with slight fuzz and sort of twangy. I recommend an external power supply because it kills some 9v batteries. Built like a rock, no noise when clicked off, dosen't kill any of your bass like many distorion pedals do, and opens doors with effects you have. Great buy.

    Great pedal for effects boost

    By Bassplaya101

    from Atlanta, Georgia

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    Well I was hesitant about buying the Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal but did and its worth it. The pedal has 2 knobs, effect boost and response. The response acts as the volume for the effects boost which can change your range from a deep bass sounds to a high bass sounds. Or in other words just changing the range of the signal. I use this pedal all the time, I recommend it to all bassist.

    steel leather

    By j the md

    from grand rapids, MI

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    im a hobby bassist and i just needed something to put more definition into my playing and that would allow me to cut through the rest of my bands noise when i wanted to be heard.the steel leather does exactly that, it ads a very distinct definition to your tone, and prepare to be heard, especially when you combine it with a fuzz or overdrive.all said this is a great product that every bassist should own, it opens the gateway for so many other effects and just enhances your playing overall, well worth the price

    MUST HAVE!!

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Steel Leather Bass Expander Effect Pedal:

    I got this pedal for christmas and as of right now, it is my favorite bass accessory. It has a great tone and can be tweaked to any style of play. Great for slapping too. The jouney ends here if you are looking for a sound that really defines you as the "bassman". In a nutshell, you can't go wrong with this product.
