New all-analog circuitry features pure Ampeg tone in rugged designs perfect for any pedalboard
Ampeg’s hotly anticipated additions to its lineup of pedals are now shipping and available. Launched at the NAMM Show in January, the Classic Analog Bass Preamp and Scrambler Bass Overdrive pedals join the popular SCR-DI Bass DI, delivering authentic Ampeg tone at amazing prices.
“Ampeg tones in high quality analog stomp boxes. It’s just that simple,” remarks John Boudreau, SVP of Ampeg Product Development. “The flexibility to punch in legendary bass tone right from your pedalboard whenever you need it is a new realm for any Ampeg-loving player.”
The Classic Analog Bass Preamp pedal allows the player to dial in a wide range of authentic Ampeg tones with the 3-band tone stack and highly flexible Ultra-Hi and Ultra-Lo circuits. The Scrambler Bass Overdrive pedal delivers a huge range of overdrive, from subtle to screaming. Players can add in a touch of highs, then blend in with the dry signal to create their custom Ampeg tone. Both pedals feature an all-analog, true bypass design with class-leading signal-to-noise ratio built into all-metal enclosures madeto survive the rigors of the road.
“There’s a lot of Ampeg wannabe pedals out there, some at unnecessarily high prices,” concludes Boudreau. “Get real, all-analog, all-Ampeg stomp boxes at a price that makes sense for bass players at any level.”
Thanks in large part to the runaway success of the SCR-DI Bass DI, the two new pedals have created quite a buzz since their introduction in January. Now bassists everywhere can get their hands on them.
