Boss BB-1X Bass Driver Bass Preamp DI Pedal
Boss BB-1X Product Overview
The BB-1X is an Overdrive Pedal / DI from Boss. When Boss designed the pedal, they wanted to make sure it didn't colour the sound of your Bass, acting more as a preamp. The BB-1X adds grit but with little to no change in tone.
Utilising Boss Multi dimensional processing technology, the BB-1X can deliver exceptional tone from natural clean to heavy drive. The brilliant natural sounding distortion preserves the high definition and dynamics of your sound.
There is an impressive blend knob, which mixes the clean signal with the effect sound from the pedal and can be tweaked to suit your desired tone.
You will also find a Line Out jack on the unit, enabling you to plug straight into a PA.
*Boss PSA series power adaptor sold separately. You can purchase by clicking here.

Gives your bass lots of warm "ooh" and "ash". Great for recording or if going straight into the mixing desk, will make you sound like you're going through a rig. Much more natural sounding than the bass overdrive. Extra output for mixing desk too.
