Prampli transistor rack 1 unit.

The one I dcris is version 2 (EBS1-V2) is this picture (lighter than the facade V1) is consistent.

The front panel includes:

- A jack between 6.35
- A potentiomtre Gain (With Peak LED)
- A potentiomtre Comp / Limit (With Peak LED)
- A switch 3 position (Bypass, Mix, Active)
- A Bright potentiomtre
- Two potentiomtres for serious (Level & Freq)
- Two for the medium rather potentiomtres (Level & Freq) plus a switch for choosing the Q of the medium rather (Low, Mid, High)
- Two potentiomtres for treble (Level & Freq)
- A "VU Maître" composed of four LEDs
- A master volume potentiomtre
- A DI output with switch (Pr Off Post)
- The Power button

The rear face has a connctique UNESCORecords:

- Food
- Line In (Jack 6.35)
- Phones
- Bi-Amp outpout (Jack 6.35)
- Effects Loop
- Outpout Stereo Jack (6.35)
- Various switch that can act on the Bi-Amp (frquences choice), the DI, the phantom power (which allows the use of EBS pedals without external power) or the effects loop .

Compared with hardware manufactured by EBS latest issue, it lacks the functions "Drive", "tube simulation" and "speaker simulation".

The potentiomtres, switches and connectors are of excellent quality.

I add a link to the manuals: http://www.bass.se/2009/manuals/ebs1cl.pdf

UTILIZATION

A switch in the facade can select the "crude" instrument (Bypass), or the handling by prampli (Active), or a blend of both (Mix).

Mode Bypass, there is no sound processing, the signal is "raw" bass.
In "Mix" is the signal BLEND "gross" from the bass equalizer of BSE.
In active mode, it was the legalization of BSE.

Bi-amplification allows the signal Separations bass and treble and a rglage min / max frequencies. Very handy if you want to use an enclosure for the bass and another for the treble.

In addition to the compressor (which works fine), it has a `prampli rglage semiconductor parameter (Level & freq) for the bass, treble and medium rather, with an additional rglage the Q (Low, Mid, High) for the medium rather. It is his strong point, you can really carve out the sound.

The icing on the cake: the potentiomtre of "bright", which adds treble and allowing the sound Slap the most specific on what can and with any type of bass.

I have, for now, not yet used the DI output

QED: prampli This is normally accompanied by a footswitch to activate or bypass the compressor and the effects loop, but having bought used, I do not availing oneself of this accessory.

SOUNDS

If one is looking for a sound "clean" high-quality prampli this is one of the best. We can get sounds "bright" and / or "deep", the very medium rather creuss or presents, ect ... but always with a perfect DEFINITIONS.

Personally, I use it on the console is connected to a PA or amp head on my Markbass TA501 (which I Bypass the prampli) or use "home studio".

The result is always beautiful ... and the sound of an exceptional quality.

Here, no distortion type Ampeg SVT, it is not his vocation. However, if we bypass the equalizer in the EBS, we can use another prampli (SVT Sansamp for example) and a pleasant change (while enjoying the compressor) without being forced to combine the pr amps (which is never good)

OVERALL OPINION

It is certainly one of the best bass prampli.

Unfortunately, it is no longer manufactured and is easily findable on occasion.
This is also a chance that I acquired mine.

I clean sound quality of (DEFINITIONS, precision) at all times with any kind of low and in any location.

I use it for over 3 years and he never the (rather Enthusiasm

In comparison with the "Microbass 2" (from the same brand) it lacks some functions (Drive, Tube-Sim Sim-Speak).

In contrast, availing oneself of a BI-Amp outlet, a compressor, a semi-parameter rglage bass, treble and medium rather + Q, a "Bright" and an adjustable switch that allows / disable the equalizer.
