To be honest, I canīt understand, why nobody else has reviewed this Tool before. This is by far the best Piece of Gear Iīve bought and I never go without it. Itīs definately a Piece of "my" Sound.
Let me explain:
You got two Inputs for two Channels. Channel 1 gives you 3 Prsets (Flat, Shape 1, Shape 2) and would be great for active Basses, but also passive ones work great with Ch1. In Ch2 you got a 3-Band EQ to shape your Sound. So you can connect two Basses, with two complete different Sounds. Of Course both Inputs from both Channels are adjustable, to get an even Output between two connected Basses. If you only connect one Bass to Ch1, you still can switch this one Bass between Ch.1 & Ch.2 by pressing the Footswitsch for Channel Selection. Is that neat? Great Feature. So you can have two complete different Sounds with one Bass.
Further you get a great DI Box. Radial is well known for their DI Boxes. Great too. You connect your Bass into the Bassbone and from there you play into the Mixing Console, BUT you keep the Control of your Sound only with that great Tool. You get a Tuner-In as well, so you can connect a Tuner. You get a FX Loop and so you can route your Signal through this Loop or pass it, just like you need it. Not enough. You further get a adjustable Boost Function. So you can boost your Signal in the adjusted Ammount in Solo Passages for Example. Of Course with or without the routed/connected FX. Just like needed. Engage or disgage it with the second Footswitch.
The EQ and the Shape presets are really great. I mostly run my Signal through Channel 1 with Shape 1, wich gives a really warm, fat Sound of your Bass and thats important. Your Bass will keep iīts own Sound. The Bassbone doesnīt colour the Sound in any Way. Clear, Warm, Fat, Great!!!!! My ultimate Piece of Gear. Both Thumbs up and highly recommended.
