The HQ of my pedalboard (for a long time) !!!

Cedric751, 01.08.2017
I've always had problems live to simultaneously manage 2 bass and effects: different bass volumes, different gains in the effects accordingly (eg: overdrive which will cruncher to death with one bass and not with the other), different volumes on pedalboard output etc.

I had previously tried to route my 2 basses in the effects with ABY pedals, get out of the pedalboard on 2 different tracks to go in 2 different inputs of my amp on which I corrected the gains in order to have a more or less balanced volume between the bass (after many hours of research on the settings of the effects to obtain the best compromises).

In short, I had only found half solutions until obtaining this fabulous machine that became the HQ of my pedalboard.

Now I can connect my 2 basses (a 4 active strings for the slap / rock, a 6 passive strings for the rest / variety) in the basswitch, balancing their volumes, giving the desired character to one of them with the preamp of excellent quality.

I go out DI to go in the sound (ear monitors for returns, finished to lug the amp).

The effects loops work just fine. For my part I use the serial loop. So I have perfectly balanced effects in terms of volumes / gains regardless of the bass used.
I do not yet use the parallel loop (with input level adjustment / send + mix / dry mix setting) because the pedalboard is in constant evolution. So I prefer to use this one as a booster and it makes me extremely service on stage on the pieces where I alternate slap game and fingers not to disappear or be too strong in the mix.

I had a lot of problems with this machine in one go: DI, bass gain, EQ of my 6 strings, gain of effects, having to fiddle the settings of effects permanently to get the desired sound according to the bass used.

The result is a great comfort of play on stage, a homogeneity of sound in terms of volumes, better management of sound effects. Happiness, quite simply.

No reproach to make in relation to this pedal. To improve it, we could imagine: a second preamp for the instrument B / the "boost" function in addition to the "parallel loop" function rather than having to choose between one or the other.

Not tried with a double bass, I can not give an opinion on the switch "high impedance". Same for the phase inverter with the old effects pedals. The best is to read the complete leaflet (in French) on the Lehle website.

This pedal will accompany my musical life probably in the long term if sustainability is at the rendezvous. But the design is well done. The solidity seems really to the rendezvous. At the first grip I immediately trusted the object. Lehle certainly has good days ahead ...

Swiss pocket knives for the bass

Niklas T., 19.09.2016
Lehle is known for loss-free sound and high quality. This also applies to the IQ DI basic cloth without any loss. I bought the pedal in the first place to play E-bass and double bass live over the same amp. In the meantime, I often use it with only one bass as a classic DI box with integrated effect loop and EQ.

The pedal is very well thought out. One has to lead the guidance once to mind, but then understands very quickly the routing. Everything very clear and logical.

The signal from Input A and B runs through a series effect loop - I use it for compressors, which are always on - and a switchable effect loop, the proportion of which can be controlled. Effect sounds with several active pedals can be connected to a "foot click". Very helpful! Input A also has the very effective EQ. Unfortunately, it is not possible to route the second signal through. Therefore a small point deduction. In most cases, however, a signal is passed on unaffected and the other instrument is adjusted.

The sound is 1A, as expected. The EQs sit well and work effectively. Even my otherwise not very good-sounding double-bass signal can be perfectly matched by a few interventions.

The Basswitch is versatile. If you have several basses and effects on stage, you will love it!
