Ben’s bass effects

Posted 24 May 2017 in Stories

bass guitar MS

Bass guitarist Ben wanted to use effects pedals with his guitar, but his MS prevents him using the foot switches. Ashley Slater, a volunteer with Remap Essex North has devised this clever system to enable Ben to operate the pedals with a “sip and puff” switch. Simply blowing a puff of air into the straw turns on the effects for that distorted bass sound.

Watch Ben operate the switch in this short film.
