    The Aphex Big Bottom Acoustic Xciter #1401 effects pedal is for acoustic guitars, mandolins, violins, cellos, violas, saxophones, flutes, accordions, xylophones, and keyboards, or any instrument outfitted with active or passive pickups. Voicing is clean and open. Gives better articulation, clarity, and projection with the feeling of a fuller reach to the lowest notes.

    Power is turned on and off by inserting the input plug. Can be powered by either a 9-volt battery (150-200 hours) or an external power supply (5-12VAC and 7-17VDC, not included) (power drain: 5mA) but unfortunately not by phantom power. As a matter of fact, the manual warns that phantom power can damage the unit.

    A Wet/Dry switch determines whether the processing is applied to the XLR output (wet) or not (dry). A foot switch on the top allows the processing to be bypassed. When the pedal is activated, the foot switch LED indicator illuminates.

    High impedance instrument input (10 megohms); low impedance instrument output -- drives a long cable effortlessly. Input Z Active: 50,000 Ohms - Passive: 10,000,000 Ohms; Output Z Instrument: 1000 Ohms - D.I.: 150 Ohms. On the pedals' rear panel, a mono 1/4-inch phone jack provides audio input. A second mono 1/4-inch jack provides instrument output and a male XLR 3-Pin connector provides balanced DI output. The Active/Passive switch sets the input impedance to either active or passive. When activated, the ground lift switch lifts the ground on the XLR output.

    Max Input Level Passive: 0.6V RMS - Active: 2.4V RMS; Frequency Response: 10Hz-30kHz +/- 1dB; Typical SNR: 70dB.

    Works with other effects units. Adds transient discriminate harmonic details to the sound source without adding distortion. The High Tune function sets the lower frequency limit for treble enhancement: 300-3kHz. The enhancement will occur for all frequencies above this point. The Hi Blend allows the desired amount of the Aural Exciter process to be mixed in with the direct signal. The Lo Tune function sets the upper frequency limit for bass enhancement: 40-210Hz. Enhancement occurs for all frequencies below this point. The Lo Blend allows the desired amount of the Big Bottom process to be mixed in with the direct signal.
