TC Electronic is about to launch the SpectraDrive pedal, billing it as: ‘ a powerful tone tool for serious bass players in search of an exceptional sounding and ultra-flexible preamp pedal’.
Based on circuitry from TC’s BH800 bass head, the pre-amp section features a four-band intelligent EQ for surgical tone sculpting and TonePrint compression courtesy of TC’s SpectraComp.
A key attraction of the new pedal, however, is likely to be the custom built studio-grade DI with switches for pre/post-EQ, ground/lift, and line/instrument level, which allows users to plus straight into a house PA from the stage.
