This is a pedal combining several elements in one housing of high quality (Lehle):
bass preamp with 4-band EQ with semiparametric two mediums, DI, switching matrix.


The manual is very clear and precise and gives many examples of use. Operation is easy and ergonomics has been studied to allow use live.


The sound quality is impeccable, very clean signal, adapted to the sounds of the bass. I use a Sadowsky Preci. and several acoustic basses.


I use it for three months intensively. I also have the EBS Microbass II and GP Lightstone Tube Bass. The EBS simply can not compete with the Basswitch both in the manufacture of that sound. The Tube Bass plays at another level and is designed for bass players seeking rather to color their sound.

In the photo a very compelling combination: Speakers Bag End 2x10 "self powered" 1000W with Basswitch.
