Tech 21 Introduces the dUg Pinnick DP-3X Signature Pedal
The dUg Pinnick DP-3X Signature Pedal is a super-compact adaptation of his Tech 21 Ultra Bass 1000 Signature head. Both recreate the sound dUg originally developed way back in the â€˜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 isnâ€™t practical, dUg collaborated on the development of the diminutive, all-analog DP-3X pedal. Personally beta-testing the DP-3X on a recent 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 dUgâ€™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.
Other 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. Rugged all-metal housing measures 7.75â€l x 2.5â€w x 1.25â€h and weighs just 12 oz.
US Street price: $289
