The HBP-1 H Series Tube Bass Preamplifier from Demeter is a preamp specifically designed for bass guitar. It gives you controls to dial in a custom tone before your signal gets sent to an amplifier and speakers. It comes with a 2-band parametric EQ and Presence function to help you to shape your sound. You can expand your sound with FX inserts for external effects devices. Connecting to a mixing/recording console is a breeze with the balanced line-out, along with a ground/lift switch to minimize hum and noise. This hand-wired pre-amp gets the best of both the tube and the solid state sounds.
- Inputs and Outputs
- You can use the balanced line-out output to feed the audio signal from your bass to an external mixing console. There are send/return connections to hook your amp up with an external sound effects device and a front panel FX loop controller. This preamp also features two instrument connections, one for an active bass and the other for a passive bass.
- Tube Front End
- The HBP-1 uses a 12AX7a tube on the front end for gain and passive tone controls.
