For the pro on the go, the VT Bass DI covers a lot of ground in a small footprint. This multi-function, multi-application format features three different outputs. You can complement your current rig, record direct, drive power amps and go direct to the PA. Just throw it in your gig bag and you’re ready at a moment’s notice. DRIVE adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed. CHARACTER sweeps through an entire range of tonal possibilities associated with Ampeg®-style amplifiers. In addition to modifying the frequency response, the Character control also influences the attack and drive characteristics.Therefore, you may need to adjust your gain and tone settings after tweaking the Character control. Settings below 12 o’clock will give you the ‘70s powerhouse,the SVT. Around 12 o’clock will introduce you to the studio staple, the flip top. Above 12 o’clock increases the gain and crunch for less polite, modern rock, indie bass sounds. Full up gives you distorted bass tones from Yes to Crimson to King’s X styles. MID, LOW, HIGH. Unlike passive controls that only cut, these active tone controls cut or boost ±12dB from unity gain (12 o’clock). Mid is 500 Hz. Low is 125 Hz. High is 3.2kHz. BLEND allows you to blend the direct instrument signal with SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry. In most cases, you will probably have this set at maximum (100% SansAmp). For certain applications, however, such as an ultra-transparent sound or for use with piezo pickup-equipped instruments, you may want to blend-in the direct signal to achieve your desired sound. Note: When Blend is at minimum,the SansAmpTubeAmplifier Emulation circuitry is bypassed. However,the Mid, Low, High and Level controls remain active. LEVEL adjusts the output level of both the 1/4” and XLR outputs.

We were hammered with requests for a bass version of the Fly Rig 5 since the day it was introduced. How could we not answer the call? We went a little crazy and stuffed everything we could into the Bass Fly Rig, except the kitchen sink, Rhode Island and a submarine.
Always thinking of our fat-stringed brethren, we had to make a 3-channel, programmable, rig-in-a-box for bassists who can’t get enough of a great thing. Like the TRI-A.C. for guitar, you get three hot tones right at your toetips. The all-analog circuitry features the same controls as its single channel predecessor: Drive, Bass, Treble, Presence, Blend and Level. Digital only in its programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a footswitch, and it’s saved in that channel. It’s that simple. Three of your faves -- to go!

Three different outputs to drive power amps, recording desks, PA mixers, or simply enhance your current rig. Controls include Presence for definition and upper harmonic content; Blend to combine the proportion of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry; and active EQ specifically tuned for bass with 12dB of cut or boost. VERSION 2 With the popularity of 5- and 6-string basses going beyond fad status and becoming mainstream, we added a switch to adjust the bass frequency to extend into those lower registers. We also added a mid-range control and a switch to adjust its frequency. The core of the SansAmp Bass Driver and all of its tones remain true to its original design.
