    Didn't see any mention of it here... from http://www.ebs.bass.se
    I don't see any mention of this on their US distributor page, http://www.brooklyngear.com , so I'm assuming it won't be out here for a while yet. I'll drop them a line and update here when I hear back.
    Looks cool! I'm a sucker for two channel preamp pedals, I use an MXR M-80 just now so I can go back and forth between normal and slap eq's.

  3. Anybody see or hear this at NAMM recently? Brooklyn Gear showed a prototype at Summer NAMM last year, so I wonder what the holdup is?!? If my Euro conversion was right, list for the pedal is about $450 in Sweden

    Adam Levy of Brooklyn asked me to stop by the EBS Booth but when I went by I didn't have time to check it out even tho I wanted to they seemed to have a descent amount on hand at last weeks winter NAMM show.

    Has anyone tried this one yet?
    My local dealer has one. I might buy it under their return policy and see how it works with my rig as a preamp.
    Ive heard from another guy that it works great for recording. The studio engineers where really impressed with his sound at a recording.

    I'm interested as well, it's everything i ever wanted from a D.I. box!! :p

    No, seriously: Is it full analogue or does it have some digital component??

    Bump for this one...

    It is available. And it sounds great. I had one for a week but returned it. I want something rack mountable. Might get one for recording later. Really versatile. Superb warm tubey sounds to Hitech slap sounds. A little hard to use but once you lern how to use all the controls it´s quite easy to get the sound you want. Try one! It kills the Sansamp Bass driver IMO.

    I am very intrested in this stompbox/preamp DI.
    Can you say me the price?
    And can you say me if the distortion effe ct can sound like a big muff?

    I really love the distortion of my fafner, and I think it s quite the same, but is there this other type of character?

    I´ve never tried a Big Muff so I cant comment on that.
    It sounds much like the TD650 and Fafner overdrive to me.
    The price in Sweden is about €350.

    Did you try the MXR DI box?
    EBS microbass is better?

    I called Bass Northwest, since they have the MicroBass II listed on their website, and they said it's $695!! Dang! $995 retail. :eek:

    Guess I'm gonna stick with my Sansamp for a while. I could almost buy 5 SABDDI's for the price of that EBS thing. Now that would give me some sound options!

    This price is incredible!
    Probably a good reason to be an unfamous pedal effect!

    Yes, but I was referring to there being no mention of it here on talkbass back at the time (December '03)

    If it's really going to be $700 then I'll pass for now.

    I will buy it at 350 euros, but 750 is to much for my student lifestyle!

    Does somebody know a similar preamp pedal with overdrive and real bypass?
