The Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is a complete DI and bass control pedal for use in the studio or on the stage. The pedal is an analog one that serves as a preamp for your bass, a DI, and an overall bass rig home base. It's got 1/4" connections for two separate inputs, an FX send and return, a parallel output and an XLR output for using this as a direct input box. It's not rackable as it will sit on your pedal board.

UTILIZATION

I really like the amount of control you get with the Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe. Since I don't own it I don't know all the ins and outs in terms of the four foot switches, but basically it gives you every option possible when it comes to routing. It also has controls for drive, bass and treble control, presence, blend, and overall level. The FX loop connections make it possible to set up your other pedals around it and have a true clean sound when not using them.

SOUND QUALITY

The overall sound of the Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is outstanding a DI box. The amount of control is very welcome as it really acts like a bass preamp with a great amount of routing options for using this with an amplifier and effects. Just send the XLR output to your recording device or PA and you're good to go with a clean and professional sounding bass tone!

OVERALL OPINION

The Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is definitely a pedal for professionals who are looking for an all purpose hub for their bass rig. It works well both in the recording studio as a fabulous DI box, but also as a home base for your entire rig. Just having the pedal on it's own will probably be enough of a 'rig' for most users, as it's that versatile. Bass players should definitely check this thing out!
