    Product Description

    The BMAX is a high quality bass preamp/processor for the recording studio and on the stage. At the heart of the BMAX is a class A/B front-end, the input of which emulates the loading effect that the input of classic-design tube preamp would present to the bass pickups, and one of the key aspects in the warmth and punch of tube preamps. The BMAX also provides a pure and clean electronically-balanced DI output. From its 1/4" thick extruded front panel to thoughfully designed ergonomics to the red-abalone-topped knobs, the fit and finish of the BMAX exudes quality craftsmanship.


    • The BMAX is perfect anywhere an extremely high-quality, pristine preamplifier is required for the bass guitar
    • In the recording studio where a bass amplifier is impractical due to space or loudness considerations
    • In performance applications, where players will find the BMAX ergonomics intuitive and easy to use
    • The BMAX EQ and Dynamic controls, combined with the patented Sonic Maximizer processor, afford a wide palette of tonal choices

    What is your overall opinion of this product?
    I own this preamp and the earlier BBE 383 bass preamp ... I LOVE this preamp! has passive tone controls and takes time to fully understand & use properly but the rewards are great in all applications. I use mine to drive Crown XLS 1000 power amps and SoundTech 800 powers amps & also as a studio D.I. box. Its built well & very effective when used properly ..I have used BBE processors for many years so I am aware of the BBE processing lo contour & BBE high freq control . It has huge amounts of gain. Reading the instruction book is a MUST for new users. I highly recommend this unit for anyone needing a component type bass rack. very high quality
