A super-compact adaptation of his Tech 21 Ultra Bass 1000 Signature head, the DP-3X also recreates the sound dUg originally developed way back in the '80s, merging high-end distortion with low-end bass. Prior to his signature head, this involved running a guitar amp and a bass amp together, along with rack full of effects. Wanting to further streamline his gear for occasions when his full Tech 21 rig simply isn't practical, dUg collaborated on the all-analog DP-3X pedal. Personally beta-testing the DP-3X on a European tour, dUg encountered a different backline in each and every venue. But no matter which amp was on stage, dUg was able to nail his immense tone each and every night.

In addition to achieving dUg's unique tone, the DP-3X has the flexibility to provide traditional bass amp sounds as well. Mix mode engages Drive to bring in distortion and Chunk for upper harmonics. A Gain button provides additional distortion and compression. In clean/full-range mode, Drive and Chunk disengage, while Comp and Gain remain active. Other controls include 3-band active EQ with switchable Mid and a master Volume. Features include chromatic tuner, headphone capability, and an XLR Output to go direct to the PA desk or studio board without compromising detail, warmth or responsiveness.

Was set on a Darkglass b7k Ultra. A/B'd that and this for fun and went home with the DP 3x instead. Besides the fact I love Pinnick's sound, this thing is insanely versatile...I often hop genres over the course of a show and this does the job. Good tuner and onboard compressor. Tiny, built like a tank, You can go DI or run it through an amp. In my case, my setup is Orange Bass Terror with Orange 1x15, with either a Rickenbacker 4003 or 1980 BC Rich Eagle deluxe. But if I'm doing a festival or can't use my rig, I still have my sound. Fantastic piece of gear.
