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 it's single channel predecessor: Drive, Bass, Treble, Presence, Blend and Level. Digital only in it's programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a foot switch and it's saved in that channel. It's that simple. Three of your faves -- to go!

set 3 tones. you can go from mellow chill out bass to a nice gravely drive and most any point in between, it's a decent size and it's extremely simple to use. great rig for those who don't want to lug an amp around as well. I've used it with my guitar with some success as well but it definitely shines with bass.

This pedal is my sound, its basic but makes your bass sound great especially for a D.I signal to FOH. the little buttons for phantom power have gotten stuck on me at times after 10 years of use and gunk, but other than that these things are tanks, last forever and will change your sound for the better.

I use it for recording purposes...straight into the audio interface...and to run straight into a powered PA. It works fabulously in both settings. set up for a clean channel, Rush-like channel, and overdrive channel.

This has been in my rig for about 8 years or so and will make any amp sound great. I typically use it to plug in direct to a mixer and have had numerous sound techs comment on the punch and clarity that this thing puts out. It has basically eliminated my need for an amp altogether, which has saved my back on many occasions!

If I could have one bass pedal at any gig, it would be this one. I bought it to get a great metal tone but its provided so much more. I recommend it to all of my bass playing friends.
