What do you do when you've made a bass pedal that players can't get enough of? You strap two of them to a rocket-engine of a power section, step back, and give them way more.
The twin-channel VT Bass 1969 Head is a simply brilliant solution to creating complex bass tones based on our hugely popular SansAmp Character Series VT Bass pedal. The heart of the VT Bass 1969 is the analog warmth of the SansAmp emulation circuitry that was designed to recreate the powerful tones of SVT-style bass stacks. Like the Character Series VT Bass pedal, each channel allows players to dial in their tone with a powerful three-band EQ section and a full-range Drive control. The unique Character control alters the entire sonic structure of the channel, from thick flip-top funk, to indie rock snarl, to deep tectonic distortion.
Both of the fully-independent channels feature master Level controls, to preset their outputs, and are backed-up by a monster analog power section that will drive the matching Tech 21 4x10 speaker cabinets with horsepower to spare.
This compact, fan-cooled head also features a Gain switch to juice low output pickups or tame active basses, and a SansAmp XLR Direct Output for DI solutions live and in the studio. Additional pro touches include an effects loop, a buffered Tuner Output and a rackmount kit. The included three-button footswitch is phantom-powered and enables channel switching and muting, while the Mix switch allows both channels to be combined for truly complex tones.
Rule the low-strung kingdom with tower of power tones from the VT Bass 1969. Who knew the '60s could sound so mean?
SansAmp XLR Output works like a built-in direct box to deliver the true tone of the amp to the PA desk or studio board without compromising detail, warmth or responsiveness. The XLR is switchable from -20dB to 0dB.
Gain is a 10dB gain boost to set up the pre-amp for different pickups. For example, with lower output passive pickups, you can have punchier sounds with Gain engaged. Conversely, with higher output active pickups, you can have a cleaner sound with Gain disengaged.
Tuner Output is an independent buffered output to provide a constant unaffected signal.
