The Bassbone OD is a bass preamp with two instrument preamp channels, each of which is fully equipped with a level control, super powerful passive-interactive EQ and a low frequency filter to help eliminate resonance. The Bassbone OD is able to handle all types of instruments, depending on how it is configured.
Some examples include:
- Two channel preamp with one bass
- Selecting between two electric basses
- Switching between upright bass and electric bass
- Using it with a violin (piezo pickup) and an acoustic guitar (active pickup)
- Mixing two pickups from one instrument together
Using the Bassbone OD is fairly straight forward. Each channel is
equipped with a series of controls for volume, EQ and filtering so that
each instrument or pickup type can be optimized for tone or accentuated
for a specific need. One can select between channels using the A/B
footswitch or combine the two channels when using an instrument
that employs both magnetic and piezo transducers. What makes the
Bassbone OD truly unique is the way it is able to incorporate effects
pedals into the signal chain. These can be active all the time, bypassed
using the overdrive footswitch, or combined with the built-in overdrive to
create exciting new tones.
There are (8) eight audio connection jacks on the Bassbone OD; two
for the inputs, two for the effects loop, a dedicated stage amp output, a
tuner out that works with the mute footswitch, a balanced DI output for
the PA system and finally, a headphone out. These let you configure the
Bassbone OD to your specific application.
The connectors are coupled with various ‘set and forget’ recessed
switches and rotary controls strategically located on the side panels.
These are purposely made to be hard to access as once set, they rarely
need to be changed. A small screwdriver is used to adjust the rotary
controls and push in or out the recessed switches.
