TC Electronic Spectradrive Bas overview

  • 1Description

The SPECTRADRIVE Bass Preamp and Drive Pedal from TC Electronics is a bass preamp and line driver that features built-in TonePrint-customizable SpectraComp compression and distortion, as well as a studio-grade DI output. It can be used in several environments by bass players to deliver the warm sound and feel of a tube amp for live stage, theater, and studio applications.

The SPECTRADRIVE is built with a 1/4" input, thru, and output jack and has eight rotary knobs on the front for Gain, TubeDrive, SpectraComp, Level, Bass, Lo-Mid, Hi-Mid, and Treble settings. There are two foot switches: one is for bypass, and the other is for the effect. Other features include 3 toggle switches for Pre/Post EQ, Ground/Lift and Instrument/Line level, while the parallel outputs make it a breeze to send your dry bass tone to your amp or a separate tuner.

Furthermore, the Bass Preamp and Drive Pedal's balanced DI feeds all the tone-saturated goodness of your SPECTRADRIVE directly to the house system. This pedal doubles as a practice amp too. Just plug in your headphones and you are ready to play.

High-quality bass preamp ported directly from TC's line of bass amps gives you tonal options for practice, live, and studio performance
TubeDrive with TonePrint technology emulates preamplifier and power amplifier tube stages, offering you everything from subtle drive to full-on distortion
SpectraComp control with TonePrint technology provides a variety of ultra-transparent and highly musical multiband compression profiles to cut through any mix
Intelligent EQ stack dedicated to bass has four simple control dials to give you simple and impressive tone-shaping
Balanced DI with pre/post switch allows direct connection to mixing consoles or recording equipment
Analog buffering from the Bonafide Buffer pedal prevents signal distortion from long cable runs
Auxiliary rehearsal input for playback through speaker or headphones
Parallel outputs for tuning or sending clean signal to your amp and mixer
Studio-quality headphone amplifier with speaker emulation for personal practice and silent rehearsals
Simple, easy-to-use controls let you focus on playing
