Part of the exciting new Bassics product lineup, the BPA-1 Bass Preamp delivers with another design by the legendary UK engineer and pro studio equipment designer Malcolm Toft. From filling first engineer recording duties for the likes of David Bowie, T-Rex and James Taylor, to engineering The Beatles’ “Hey Jude”, Toft brings the goods in a bass preamp that places studio quality tone control and compression at the feet of the bass player. The carefully chosen sweepable frequencies in the BPA-1 three band equalizer section offer a range of control typically found only in the ultimate studio consoles operated by the world’s best studio engineers.
Other features include two separate inputs with volume controls, pre- and post-EQ direct outs, as well as an effects loop. With the BPA-1 you no longer need any of the controls on the amplifier head; all you need is a power amplifier and speaker.
