Actually, the Bass Buddy is more than a friend; he’s your inner bass guy. He is brains and brawn; definitely someone who can improve your game. No wonder people like Nathan East use the Buddy!

Built like a tank with 1/4" thick machined aluminum front and stainless steel chassis, the Bass Buddy is a direct box producing pristine pure sound and a crazy clean signal path. But there’s a lot more.
