SMOOTH DISTORTION AND COMPRESSION OPTIMISED FOR BASS GUITAR
It is extremely popular for use with Bass Guitar where it is used to provide both
distortion and compression without loosing any of the Bass Guitars original tone and retaining the rich low end.
It can also be used with regular guitars where the added gutsier bass equalisation enables players who favour single coil pickups to reproduce quite effortlessly the rounded, bluesy sound of classic pickups such as the Gibson P90. The comprehensive Gain and Tone variation provided by the Voodoo-Bass enable a very wide range of distortion sounds to be created from the compressed, just clipped sustain of traditional Chicago Blue to the sweet scream of full tube overload.
Electronically the Voodoo-Bass shares all the same basic Voodoo Series features with dual output buffering or hard wire output etc. The distortion section uses a unique combination of the best discrete and IC design techniques to emulate the type of distortion found on many classic tube amplifiers. It allows the player to create a wide range of distortion effects from mild to extreme whilst reacting to the most subtle nuances in touch and playing.
The Voodoo-Bass is housed in our Classic Style enclosure with both dual direct drive buffered outputs or hard wire output and has provision for an internal 9-Volt Battery (battery life 150Hrs) or can be powered from a 9-Volt DC Power Adapter (not supplied). Extensive internal filtering ensures that noise free operation is maintained even with the most basic of adapters.
DUAL DIRECT DRIVE OUTPUTS are provided capable of driving very long leads without any loss and
in fact you could use a speaker lead for the outputs if you want without any hum.
TRADITIONAL HARD WIRE OUTPUT /BYPASS is provided as well to enable comparison between using a
BUFFERED OUTPUT in your particular set-up.
MULTI-MODE OUTPUTS / HARD WIRE BYPASS/ TWO BUFFERED OUTPUTS :
The Voodoo-Bass has a true hard wire output plus two buffered outputs that can drive long cable lengths with no high frequency loss. These buffered outputs are disconnected when the hard wire output is being used. This means that all performance situations are catered for whether you want a true hard wire output or your situation calls for the advantages of buffered outputs.BATTERY LIFE :
150Hrs or more using a premium grade alkaline 9 Volt type.EXTERNAL POWER ADAPTER / SUPPLY :
An external AC adapter (not supplied) can be used and access is through a standard DC power jack ( 2.1mm centre pin ) situated next to the jack sockets. Internal onboard filtering ensures that optimum low noise performance is maintained and diode protection provides peace of mind in case of polarity setting mistakes.Connection protocol:
It uses the standard negative centre pin connection protocol used by many leading manufacturers.Specifications:
9 volt DC. Regulated output is recommended.Current rating:
50mA or more.ERGONOMIC DESIGN :
This new reduction in footprint area together with the jack sockets in the conventional position makes the integration into pedal boards very efficient. For a futher reduction in footprint consider our new TC Version of our popular models.Size:
