OVERVIEW

The legendary pedal that's been in every bassist's chain since its inception.

The SansAmp Bass Driver DI has been an arsenal staple for players and studios almost since the day it was introduced in 1994. This multi-function, multi-application pedal dials up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between.

Since the popularity of 5- and 6-string basses has gone beyond fad status and become mainstream, Tech 21 added a switch to adjust the bass frequency to extend into those lower registers. They also added a mid-range control and a switch to adjust its frequency. The core of the SansAmp Bass Driver and all of its tones remain true to its original design.

CONTROLS
Presence: Controls the amount of definition and upper harmonic content
Drive: Adjusts the overall gain structure and overdrive
Level: Regulates the XLR and effected 1/4" output levels
Blend: Allows you to mix the direct bass signal with SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry (which is particularly useful for basses equipped with piezo pickups)
Bass & Treble: Active EQ controls, specifically tuned for bass guitar, that cut or boost +/- 12dB

FEATURES
  • Presence, Drive, Level, Blend, Bass and Treble controls
  • Three outputs: an effected XLR, effected 1/4 in. and parallel, uneffected 1/4 in.
  • Phantom power operable, optional DC power supply  or 9 V alkaline battery

After years of not using pedals or preamps...I'm sold!!!

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI Effects Pedal:

I was recommended this bass preamp almost 20 years ago. I've been through a TON of boutique equipment since then, trying to find 'my sound' and figured..what the heck, let me give this pedal a try. It makes EVERYTHING sound better! If you play on other peoples rigs from time to time, bring this!!! You'll be so much happier you did! You can find 'your sound' on almost any rig with this little guy. I'm a gear snob, I like 'my sound', which is clear, clean, and with a little bit of tube breakup while grinding in on my jazz. My sound is a cross between Flea and Marcus Miller. My boutique equipment gives me this on its own. When I'm forced to play a Behringer single 15" cab with no tweeter and no usable EQ because its the backline, the Sans Amp will be definitely utilized that night! Do yourself a favor and grab one of these pedals! Even if you keep it in you bag as a backup DI. It's like having a preamp and/or a DI at your disposal in case you needed to go straight to the house.

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI Effects Pedal:

I use this as a d.i. and preamp on my EUB. I can send single to the board and to my headphone amp at the same time. It is quite versatile and sounds great! A very useful tool.
