Tech 21 SansAmp Programmable Bass Driver DI/Preamp


The SansAmp Programmable Bass Driver DI is capable of dialing up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between. With the SansAmp Programmable Bass Diver, you not only have three different outputs to drive power amps, recording desks, PA mixers, or simply enhance your current rig, but you also have the capability to save three different tone settings.  The SansAmp all-analog circuitry features the same controls as its single channel predecessor, the Bass Driver DI: Drive, Bass, Treble, Presence, Blend and Level. Digital only in its programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a footswitch, and it’s saved in that channel. It’s that simple. Three of your faves, ready to go!

Controls include Presence for definition and upper harmonic content; Blend to combine the proportion of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry; and active EQ specifically tuned for bass with 12dB of cut or boost. Phantom power operable, or uses optional DC power supply, or 9V alkaline battery (not included).

For studio and live applications, SansAmp Bass Driver DI is engineered with three outputs: an effected XLR, and effected 1/4", and a parallel, uneffected 1/4". The footswitch activates the Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry. Disengaging the circuitry enables you to use SansAmp Bass Driver DI as a standard active transparent direct box. Sample style settings include Bassman®, SVT®, King's X, Slap, Reggae, Crimson. Settings are also included for Chapman Stick and Acoustic guitar.
