The updated SansAmp Bass Driver V2 DI from Tech 21
delivers big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, and gnarly
distortions through your bass amp, power amp, or directly through a
mixing board. Added features include a bass switch for extending the
lower register to accommodate 5- and 6-string basses, as well as a
midrange control, and a switch to adjust its frequency.



When using the pedal's 1/4" output, the Bass Driver DI can be used to
provide overdrive and EQ adjustment as a stompbox, driving the front
input of your amp. Use the integrated footswitch to add or bypass the
pedal from your signal chain. The Bass Driver DI can also be used as a
preamp by running the 1/4" output directly into the power amp input (or
effects return) of your amp. For going direct to a mixing board or
studio console, the XLR terminal on the SansAmp Bass Driver V2 outputs a
balanced signal and can receive 48V phantom power from the mixing board
or studio console to fully power the pedal and all of its functions.



Having multiple outputs allows for multitasking, so you can mix and
match your signal chain options with the Bass Driver DI. For example, on
a live stage, you can send a balanced DI signal to the mixing board or
console while using the low-Z or parallel 1/4" outputs to route the
signal back to your amp for real-time monitoring. Low-Z outputs can
drive long cable lengths without signal deterioration, ensuring your
bass signal arrives without attenuated high frequencies or excess noise.














Controls



  • Presence: Brings out the upper harmonic content and attack. For a smoother high end and for clean settings, decrease to taste
  • Drive: Adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed
  • Mid,
    Bass, and Treble: Unlike passive controls that only cut, these active
    tone controls cut or boost ±12 dB from unity gain (12 o’clock)
  • Mid Shift Switch: Changes the frequency from 500 Hz (up position) to 1000 Hz
  • Bass
    Shift Switch: Changes the frequency from 40 Hz (up position) to 80 Hz
    to accommodate 5- and 6-string basses that extend into the lower
    registers.
  • Blend: Controls the ratio of SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry and your direct instrument signal.
  • Level: Adjusts the output level of both the 1/4” and XLR outputs.








Inputs and Outputs



  • Input 1/4”, 1 MOhm, instrument level. Switches battery power on/off
  • Parallel
    Output: 1/4” unbalanced direct output is “hard-wired” parallel with
    input jack. Instrument signal passes through, un-effected, to the input
    of your stage amplification system
  • Balanced XLR Output: Balanced
    low-Z output. Sends effected or un-effected signal to mixing
    console/recorder, depending on the orientation of the Footswitch
  • XLR
    Output Level Switch: -20 dB pad to match the output to equipment with
    different input level requirements. Disengaged (up position), the output
    is 0 dB. Engaged (in position), the output is -20 dB
  • 1/4”
    Output: Unbalanced low-Z output. Sends effected or un-effected signal to
    amp rig or power amp, as per the orientation of the Footswitch
  • 1/4”
    Output Level Switch: +10 dB boost to match the output to equipment with
    different input level requirements. Disengaged (up position), the
    output is -10 dB. Engaged (in position), the output is 0 dB
  • Footswitch (with LED Indicator): Engages/disengages SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry
    • Active
      (LED On): Tonality and gain structure are affected as determined by the
      setting of the controls. Delivers effected signal through the XLR
      Output and 1/4” Output.
    • Inactive (LED Off): SansAmp Bass Driver
      DI functions as an active transparent direct box and does not sonically
      alter the instrument signal








Phantom Power



Phantom and Ground connect Switch: When engaged, the ground
connects and unit will accept phantom power through the XLR Output.
Disengaged, the ground of your stage system and other interconnected
gear is lifted (isolated) from the ground of the mixing console







Speaker Simulation



Within the SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry is a
speaker simulator which models a multi-miked bass cabinet. The tonal
response is smooth and precludes the possible peaks, valleys, and
notches associated with single-miking techniques.
