The dUg Pinnick Signature Ultra Bass 1000 is a 2-channel, all-analog bass amp head.
It was designed in collaboration with dUg to create a single amp capable of achieving
the unique sound he developed by running a guitar amp and a bass amp together, plus
using a handful of effects, to merge high-end distortion with low-end bass.
There is an unconventional structure to the channels. Rather than switching from one
channel to the other, the intent is to use both channels mixed or the Bottom channel by itself.
The Top channel handles the role of a distorted guitar amp and the Bottom provides a clean
pre-amp and compressor for a more conventional bass amp sound. Mixed together,
you get dUg.
In addition to changing channels, the included Footswitch controls the MIX function,
which simultaneously engages both channels. There is also a MUTE switch for silently
tuning your instrument.
All of the controls and functionality of the dUg Ultra Bass 1000 reflect dUg’s personal,
perhaps conceptually unusual, specifications. And that’s what makes it a dUg Pinnick
Signature amp. Being long-time fans ourselves, it’s been an incredible experience
working with dUg. We are over the moon to make this amp for him and extremely
proud to now bring it to you.
