Overview

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

By Philly Watts

from Saint Cloud, FL

  • Tube Amp Warmth

Cons

  • Speaker sim is always on (some will be unhappy)

  • Running through a power amp

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI Effects Pedal:

I use this product in conjunction with an MXR M80 and MXR BASS COMPRESSOR. The Sansamp is the key to getting that tube amp warmth and growl that I love so much. I can hear the recordings of hundreds of amazing bass players out there every time I plug in.

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI Effects Pedal:

I play for a company that supplies items like these and multiple people use the same item.
Other people will adjust the settings without knowing what they are doing. Since I purchased this and actually read the manual I was able to set it up for the exact sound I am looking for and it stays that way. It is crystal clear and I also do not get that pick up buzz like others I have used. Great product!
