The Sinner Bass Drive is a so-called Bass Preamp DI Box. This means that the DI box passes the unbalanced bass signal balanced via an XLR jack to a mixing console or the corresponding recording equipment. Optionally, the output level of 0 dB can be lowered by -20 dB for adaptation to microphone preamps. A ground lift completes the DI section. This pedal is a hybrid solution of bass preamp and overdrive pedal. Through an unbalanced output, you can either connect the pedal like a normal effects pedal in front of any standard bass amplifier between bass and preamp, or optionally connect it in a serial effects loop. As a full-format bass preamp, you can even drive a power amp directly with the Bassdriver DI. The boostable level of the output by +10 dB is very useful.
This kit contains the PCB and all necessary parts. The enclosure can be selected, please select 6 knobs, up to 19mm diameter, for 6,3mm shaft separately.
