Radial has announced the Bassbone V2 at NAMM 2015, a second generation Bassbone that features a dedicated effects loop, combination power booster-mute footswitch and piezo optimized input for upright bass.
The Bassbone V2 is a two channel bass control centre that features the same award winning audio circuit that has made the Bassbone popular with artists as diverse as Marcus Miller, John Patitucci and Victor Wooten. It features a toggle switch to select between two basses or switch between channels like a two channel amp. A full effects loop with send and receive jacks is complimented with a wet-dry control that enables the artist to mix-in as much of the effect as desired without losing the natural bass tone. A third footswitch works double duty as either a power booster or a mute switch. This lets you accentuate passages for solos or if you prefer to ‘ride steady’ in the background, can be used for quiet on-stage tuning using the dedicated tuner output. A main output is used to feed the stage amp while the built-in Radial DI box feeds the PA system or recording workstation.
