Tech 21 (press release August 2016)
Tech 21 Introduces the SansAmp Bass Driver DI Version 2
The SansAmp Bass Driver DI has been an arsenal staple for players and studios almost since the day it was introduced in 1994. This all-analog multi-function, multi-application pedal dials up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between.
With the popularity of 5- and 6-string basses having gone beyond being a trend and becoming mainstream, Tech 21 has “modernized” Version 2 to enable switching the bass frequency to extend further into those lower registers. A mid-range control was also added along with a switch to adjust its frequency. The core of the SansAmp Bass Driver and all of its tones remain true to its original design.
