Preamp/DI | Cables | Polish | PortaBag

The first—and still the best—bass preamp since 1990!

Installation KitThe Sadowsky Outboard Bass Preamp/DI Pedal contains the same famous circuitry built into every Sadowsky bass. Housed in a small footpedal box for use on the floor, it measures just 4.5" x 4.5" x 2.25" and weighs 1.5 pounds. Just plug your bass into the box and then go from the box to your amp, and/or direct to the board.

Controls consist of volume, treble boost and bass boost. The Preamp/DI Pedal is perfect for vintage basses where installation of an onboard preamp would affect the instrument's original condition and resale value. The Preamp/DI pedal is recommended for all passive basses, basses with active pickups, and instruments that have active electronics that can be bypassed. It also works great with all upright bass pickups.

Proper shielding of the control cavity is imperative to obtain the "quietness" this legendary preamp has become known for. For the most reliable, trouble-free results, we recommend that instruments be shipped to us for installation. For more information please call or e-mail us.
