Boss unveils BB-1X Bass Driver at NAMM 2015


Boss adds to its extensive range of bass stompboxes with the BB-1X Bass Driver, launched at NAMM 2015. Designed to add extra punch to both clean and distorted bass tones, the BB-1X acts like a pre-amp, emphasizing all the best characteristics of both instrument and amp.

Incorporating the latest MDP technology, the BB-1X can deliver a wide range of sounds and adapts and responds to any playing style or register, never losing the body and core tone of the instrument, preserving high definition and dynamics and never muffling the low end.

Low/high drive knobs offer an extremely wide range of sound creation. These controls not only shape the frequencies, but change the characteristics of the tone as well. In addition, the Line Out jack on the BB-1X goes beyond a standard DI out, providing a newly crafted and enhanced direct sound for reaching larger audiences through a PA system while a Blend knob allows for mixing the direct signal with the effect signal.

There are also two output jacks: a normal output for a bass amp and a Line Out for a balanced connection directly to a PA or recorder.

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
