Bass preamp and DI box.
The Radial Bassbone is a power-packed bass preamp that combines on-stage efficiency, amazing tonal control and superb audio performance making it the ideal front end for both live and studio recording.
Designed as a bass command center, the Bassbone lets you connect two basses and seamlessly toggle between them using a footswitch. Each channel is equipped with a separate level control to balance the two instruments. This is augmented with a unique EQ that enables you to adjust the tone for each instrument to match with your bass amp. In fact, the EQ is so powerful that you can toggle between channels to emulate switching from a P-Bass to a Rickey using the same bass! For added stage control, a second footswitch engages a power booster for soloing. This works double duty to turn on an effects loop.
The Bassbone's highly acclaimed audio circuit features full sized discrete electronics for optimal signal flow to deliver the sound of your bass to your amp with minimal distortion or artifact. Outputs include a ¼" instrument output for the stage amp, separate always-on tuner out, and a built-in Radial direct box to feed the PA or recording system.
Control and great tone in one pedal. Order today!

Comments about Radial Engineering Bassbone OD Bass Preamp With Overdrive:
I play in a Classic Rock band with Country Rock tendencies. I use a Fender Precision for the Rock and Southern Boogie material and a Carvin AC40 active-electronics piezo-pickup semi-acoustic bass for the mellower country-rock tunes (Eagles, Marshall Tucker, etc.) This piece of gear lets me preset two channels of tone and drive so that I can swap instruments (with VERY different tone quality and output power) with just a click of a foot-button. No more futzing around with the amp head, or trying to balance levels using the instruments' controls.
But it sure doesn't stop there. I run the effects loop through four Boss stompboxes, and I set the effects loop to operate independently of the built-in OD circuitry, so I can toggle between two different OD effects (though, to be fair, I need neither OD very much in my current band).
I also run the Tuner Out signal to a Korg Pitchblack and make a lot of use of the Mute button, for silent on-stage tuning.
Best of all, the 'bone is quite compact, so I can fit it with a Line 6 G50 wireless receiver, four Boss effects, and the Korg tuner, all onto a small 17" by 13" PT-JR pedalboard.
