The SansAmp Bass Driver is much more than just a direct box, the SansAmp Bass Driver DI is capable of dialing up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between. Three different outputs to drive power amps, recording desks, PA mixers, or simply enhance your current rig. Controls include Presence for definition and upper harmonic content; Blend to combine the proportion of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry; and active EQ specifically tuned for bass with 12dB of cut or boost.

Actual size: 4.5" x 3.5" x 1.5"
Weight: 14 oz.

The controls offer a broad range of traditional bass amp sounds, including such meaty styles as Bassman® and SVT®, as well as raunchy, crunchy overdriven sounds that would typically require a multitude of effects units.

Specifications:



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 are active EQ controls, specifically tuned for bass guitar, that cut or boost +/- 12dB.

For studio and live applications, SansAmp Bass Driver DI is engineered with three outputs: an effected XLR, and effected 1/4", and a parallel, uneffected 1/4". The footswitch activates the Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry. Disengaging the circuitry enables you to use SansAmp Bass Driver DI as a standard active transparent direct box.

Sample style settings include Bassman®, SVT®, King's X, Slap, Reggae, Crimson. Settings are also included for Chapman Stick and Acoustic guitar.

Very versatile DI!

I would highly recommend this unit to any DI fan out there. Used it for every recording into Cubase through a Tascam 144, and Mackie Mixer.Fantastic for getting better recording quality before hitting the mixer and USB interface. Great in the live setting as well.Sample settings are nice to get your feet wet. Experimenting into the controls will grant you more out of this unit. Highly recommended to sound heads!
