FAT Freebass 383 manual Help!

Post by RichShan » Tue Apr 21, 2009 11:14 am

Hello All,

I just bought a lovely FAT Freebass 383. A great machine. :D

I was wondering if anyone out there had a manual available.

I mean, it's pretty self explanatory but sometimes a read of a manual can help...

heres a manual for the MAM MB33:

It is identical with the Freebass 383 as you can read here:

It's just another case and name, so maybe this will help.
Only drawback, the manual is in german. I'm not aware of an english version neither.

Double your fun with the rather characterless filter by soldering a wire across the 3rd resistor back from the resonance pot. Apparently, the filter was designed for self oscillation, but to make it more faithful to the original, they removed this feature using said resistor. Those crazy Germans!
