Fridays’ Pedal Line Friday mentioned a Tech 21 SansAmp 3-Channel Programmable Bass Driver DI. Programmable DI? This seems pretty interesting, so I had to look further. All the bass players I’ve played with (with the exception of one) dreaded the DI set up, which I can understand, but I’m wondering if something like this would make things a lot better.
Here is the official description:
The Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI is a 3-channel, programmable rig-in-a-box similar to the TRI-A.C. for guitar, but made for bassists. The all-analog circuitry features drive, bass, treble, presence, blend, and level controls. Digital only in its programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a footswitch, and it’s saved in that channel. Works great on stage or in the studio. Rugged all-metal construction. Operates via a 9V alkaline battery, phantom power, or the optional Tech 21 DC2 power supply. 7.25″L x 5″W x 2″H. 25 oz.
I found this video by elninodelamuerte where he demos some of the settings.
You can pick up the Tech 21 SansAmp 3-Channel Programmable Bass Driver DI for $209.00 at Musician’s Friend.
