Overview

The Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Instrument Preamp Pedal provides detailed tone-shaping possibilities for acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and electric and upright basses, either direct to a mixing console or with an instrument amplifier. The Para Driver DI gives your instrument a natural warmth and presence, as if miking it through a tube preamp. The SansAmp circuitry eliminates the harsh, unnatural harmonics of piezo pickups, while the Drive control offers some edge-- ranging from just a little to over-the-top.

Features
  • Active tone controls with 12dB of cut or boost
  • Sweepable semi-parametric EQ
  • 1/4" 4.7 megOhm instrument level input
  • 1/4" and XLR outputs with selectable levels
  • Parallel, unaffected output to run a dry signal to a separate channel
  • Mid Shift ranges from 160Hz to 3kHz, +/- 16dB
  • Blend has a regular full-size knob control
  • Rumble Filter switch removes unwanted sub-sonic frequencies that cause boominess and audible handling noises associated with acoustic guitars and also complements other instruments, such as electric guitar, for a snappier, more in-your-face sound
  • Air switch adds top-end clarity and sparkle to acoustics and complements other instruments, as well as vocals, for more definition and more open sound
Specifications
    • Actual size: 4.5" x 3.5" x 1.5"

worth the price

By Guitar guy

from CA

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Preamp Pedal V2:

Still trying out the Para Driver with various applications, but I love the sounds I am getting on bass, accoustic and electric guitars. It adds a warmth with clarity. It makes my Roland 60 amp sound like a Fender Blues amp in the "money for nothing setting". Mostly, I am going direct to the studio with no other amps or effects.

Great product

By Bassist2010

from San Antonio, tx

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Preamp Pedal V2:

As for the para driver Di, it's everything i could want in a simple affordable parametric eq. I record a passive p-bass and it needed some balls, which this definitely provides. Everything from thick n chunky tone, to mid-range jazz tones.

Good Stuff!

By Chris Davis

from Battle Creek, Michigan

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Preamp Pedal V2:

This is a great little piece of equipment.If you have never tried one of these little gems you may want to check one out. A must have for Bass players!!! It will take you from a thunderous Bottom end to a slapping funk machine with just a little tweak of a knob. Even makes cheap basses sound great. Good Stuff!

Para Driver pedal

Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Preamp Pedal V2:

I was trying for a warmer sound when recording. Reviews said this baby would do it. Sure enough my recording did sound warmer. Then I used it to see what it would do for my solid state amp just when playing. It did make a difference. It helped the sound. I still have to try different tweeks and really give it a try out but the first few uses seems to justify to me the purchase of this device.

    Comments about Tech 21 SansAmp Para Driver DI Preamp Pedal V2:

    got this in my search for a great bass sound with warmth and drive. i didn't spend a ton of time with it (hence the average star-rating, but it was immediately clear to me that this was not for me. I was putting it up against the Ampeg SCR-DI direct box, which I really like a lot.
