powerful EQ section has dual-band active tone controls that
cut or boost ±12dB. They effectively reduce the need
for a typical fixed frequency mid control, and enable you
to achieve an extensive variety of curves --including a "mid-cut"
as well as a "mid-boost." You can simply and quickly
dial up a great sound in any venue. And you can make any passive
bass instantly active --saving the expense and anxiety of hacking
chunks of wood out of your favorite bass to permanently install
a pre-amp. With active basses, you'll have even greater flexibility
with pre- and post-compression EQ at your fingertips.
you turn the compression off, you can use the Bass Compactor
solely to kick in up to 6dB of clean boost. Bring up the
volume without altering the tone... which is particularly
handy during the guitar solo, or when it's your turn to be
in the spotlight.
Bass Compactor's design gives you the option of using just
the compression, just the EQ, or, of course, both together.
Noise reduction is thoughtfully built right into the circuitry.
The high impedance F.E.T.-based input is exceptionally responsive
to your playing style... jazz, funk, blues, or good old rock
'n' roll. And, like all Tech 21 products, the Bass Compactor
will not depersonalize your instrument's individual character.
You can record direct, or use it in conjunction with any
type of amp, or, you guessed it, any model SansAmp.
