OVERVIEW

Get a board-friendly take on awesome tone built for dUg Pinnick.

A super-compact adaptation of his Tech 21 Ultra Bass 1000 Signature head, the DP-3X also recreates the sound dUg originally developed way back in the '80s, merging high-end distortion with low-end bass. Prior to his signature head, this involved running a guitar amp and a bass amp together, along with rack full of effects.

Wanting to further streamline his gear for occasions when his full Tech 21 rig simply isn’t practical, dUg collaborated on the all-analog DP-3X pedal. Personally beta-testing the DP-3X on a European tour, dUg encountered a different backline in each and every venue. But no matter which amp was on stage, dUg was able to nail his immense tone each and every night.

In addition to achieving dUg’s unique tone, the DP-3X has the flexibility to provide traditional bass amp sounds as well. Mix mode engages Drive to bring in distortion and Chunk for upper harmonics. A Gain button provides additional distortion and compression. In clean/full-range mode, Drive and Chunk disengage, while Comp and Gain remain active. Other controls include 3-band active EQ with switchable Mid and a master Volume. Features include chromatic tuner, headphone capability, and an XLR Output to go direct to the PA desk or studio board without compromising detail, warmth or responsiveness.

      The holy grail of bass sounds! That is probably an understatement ;) This sound sculpture tool is beyond any expectation I had, incredible. Through an amp or xlr'ed into the board, it allows you to grind without losing the bottom. dUg and Tech 21 have delivered!!

        Comments about Tech 21 dUg Pinnick DP-3X Signature Effects Pedal:

        I've been playing bass for over a decade (used to be a guitar player). Over the years, you learn to appreciate bands led by bass players, so I naturally gravitated towards Kings X. I started a tribute band and had a LOAD of effects to get no more than 15% of dUg's sound. The DP-3X comes out and it's a major godsend. It is DEAD ON to what he's playing and man, does it sound punch and raw. That "gangly" sounding high over the top of those thumpy lows is almost impossible to get otherwise. On top of that, this thing is SMALL, but that's a good thing. It literally fits in my back pocket. The XLR output is a nice touch for times when I just want to plug into the house. Adding a tuner was extra brilliant in that when you're playing KX tunes, you're constantly tuning around. The wait was definitely worth it and my band mates were super impressed when I first plugged it in. Now my guitar player is jealous since Ty doesn't have an all-in-one pedal!

          This thing sounds killer. Amazing grind without sacrificing the low end. Good built in compressor and the tuner works well even with 5 strings.
