[NAMM] Radial Bassbone OD bass preamp
Radial Engineering announces the new Bassbone OD for the NAMM Show 2014.
Radial has decided to improve the Bassbone with the input from users and will use the NAMM 2014 to showcase its brand-new bass preamp.
The Bassbone OD is a bass preamp with two instrument input channels, each with level control, a semi-parametric EQ and low frequency resonance filter. Channel-1 is further equipped with Drag Control load correction to optimize the tone and feel when using a vintage passive instrument (think Fender basses). Channel-2 takes a different slant with a PZB booster that increases the sensitivity and load to 10 meg ohms to optimize it for use with piezo transducers commonly used on upright basses. Both channels may be mixed together for dual pickup systems.
Outputs include a ¼' instrument level output plus a low-Z balanced Radial DI box. The XLR output can be assigned pre- or post-effects. A separately buffered tuner output and a built-in headphone amp with minijack output are also at your disposal.
The Bassbone also features an on-board bass overdrive with drive, tone and a wet-dry mix controls, plus a built-in send & receive effects loop to share effect pedals between channels. The OD footswitch may be assigned to the loop, overdrive or both.
The Bassbone OD will start shipping in Spring 2014 with an estimated retail price of $500.
