The SansAmp Bass Driver DI has been an arsenal staple for players and studios almost since the day it was introduced in 1994. This all-analog multi-function, multi-application pedal dials up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between.
With the popularity of 5- and 6-string basses having gone beyond being a trend and becoming mainstream, Tech 21 has “modernized” Version 2 to enable switching the bass frequency to extend further into those lower registers. A mid-range control was also added along with a switch to adjust its frequency. The core of the SansAmp Bass Driver and all of its tones remain true to its original design.

Orange has redesigned their entire entry-level bass combo range with the introduction of the Orange Crush Bass Series. Key upgrades include a parametric EQ circuit across the series, inspired by the Orange 4 Stroke series bass amps, allowing bassists to fine tune these amps to any musical style with much greater control. Their analogue circuitry, newly-designed speakers and ported cabinetry ensure all three of these elegant combos deliver bold and punchy lows. In addition to a handy onboard tuner, the headphone output on all models features CabSim filtering to emulate the response of Orange’s stage-ready OBC bass cabinets - optimised for direct recording or silent practice. The Crush Bass 50 and 100 are a nod to Orange’s OB1 Series amps with their unique interactive gain and blend controls. These create enormous ‘bi-amp’ style tones by adding harmonics and variable levels of grit to the core bass sound, perfect for earthy 70s vintage tones and savage distorted anarchy,...
GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION is proud to announce the addition of the BA210-3 design to the innovative BASS ARRAY® line of bass guitar cabinets the company first introduced in 2015. Based
upon the overwhelming success and popularity of the BASS ARRAY® 12-3 design, we’ve now expanded the line to include a 2 x 10” model.
Although the same size as many 2 x 10” and tweeter cabinets, this innovative design blends the
punch and quickness of premium Neodymium dual 10” drivers in a vented bass reflex enclosure
and the performance and pattern control of a 4 x 3” neodymium driver line array element. The
benefits of combining both design platforms in an extremely compact cabinet are exponential for
• Delivering full, deep, low frequency response from the high efficiency dual 10” woofers -- doing
what they do best, providing excellent support of the fundamental for the lower strings of the instrument.
• Using a selective crossover point this design overcomes the “beaming” (pattern...
Providence has introduced a new bass preamp with overdrive and DI featuring Vitalizer B circuit, Brick Drive BDI-1.
With the carefully picked quality parts and circuit structure specifically designed for bass, it provides more power of expression with low noise. The internal operating voltage is boosted to 21V to achieve more dynamic range.
- Mix Control
By mixing the drive sound and clean sound through the preamp EQ, it transforms and adds nuance to the overdriven sound. Even when it's heavily driven, the bottom end and fullness of the sound will be intact by adding the unaffected clean sound via the mix knob. Also, adding just a little but of drive gain to the clean sound gives a huge, thick, wall of bass style sound. The mix control allows you to create a variety of sound settings from a bit of edge to full out aggressive distortion The drive gain was designed to be used with the clean sound and blend it together, or wild full out distortion sound without the usual muddy...
