TC Electronic Spectradrive Overview

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.
