SolidGoldFX releases BETA-V – Bass Preamp with Drive

Audio Distribution Group are pleased to announce the release of the BETA-V Bass Preamp from SolidGoldFX.

SFGX’s renowned and top-selling Beta architecture has been upgraded to deliver a much wider range of solid bass tones. With the new BETA-V and it’s three different low-pass filter settings, a completely reworked Drive section and an active post-gain 2-band EQ, this new compact pedal is a bass preamp with some serious kick.

BETA-V is available in the UK from Audio Distribution Group now!

The BETA-V from SolidGoldFX is a Bass Preamp pedal that kicks! This latest incarnation of SGFX’s top selling Beta Series is designed to capture the warmth and grit of favorite vintage tube amps. You know, that distinctive drive and tone that seems to be lacking from much of today’s modern bass amplification.

Yes, we all know the convenience of a lightweight “sub 10 lbs” bass head that pumps out 500 watts and a neo cab that doesn’t require a roadie crew or chiropractor is great, but there is something extremely satisfying in the way that big, old Ampeg-style tube setups compress, clip and round out your signal. However, With the BETA-V you can finally have the best of both worlds – bone-shaking mojo-packed dirt, all wrapped up in modern and easy to use convenience.

Main Features:

  • Bass Preamp and Overdrive effects pedal
  • Designed to capture the warmth and grit of vintage tube amps
  • Low-Pass filter with 2 settings
    • 0 – no low pass filter
    • 1 – mid bump
    • 2 – mid scoop
  • Drive control, from mild grit to warm overdrive
  • Active 2-band post-Gain EQ
  • True-Bypass switching
  • Hand-made in Montreal, Canada
  • Powered by a regular 9-18 V DC PSU (center -, 2,1 mm, 13 mA current draw at 9 V)

Our classic Beta bass architecture has been reworked and expanded, delivering a wider range of tones. The low-pass filter now has 2 settings for bumped or scooped-mids as well as a center bypass setting for a more transparent experience. Plus, the Drive control has been reworked for lower gain applications or hotter basses.

Most importantly, the BETA-V sports an active 2-band post gain EQ allowing you to boost or cut your highs and lows with a flat response in the center. Dialing in anything from punchy overdriven Lemmy tones to the fattest, deepest soul shaking dub is only a few knob twists away. Complete with top-mounted jacks, soft touch true bypass switching and 9-18 V DC operations, the BETA-V is a true thump machine, ready to rock your world.
