Clean as clean can be and overdrive
Must confess, the purchase was with a certain risk afflicted, as I found no suitable assessments of this bass power unit. The tests and user reviews that could be determined at the time of purchase related to the device "Tonebone", which was the previous model from Radial Engineering.
Report from a "roadie" perspective: The device weighs 1.13 kilograms and has the following dimensions: 10.7x20.3x48mm. It has a total of 8 inputs / outputs. Of the four outputs, one is for headphones, a DI XLR out, and one for tuner devices. Well and one for the connection to the stage bass amplifier. The inputs for the bass guitars are located on the right side of the unit, the power supply on the rear left. The built-in cable clip (hard plastic rail with metal screw) prevents unwanted pulling out of the power plug from the BassboneOD.
Report from the perspective of a bassist: So the device does not really need a manual, since everything is self-explanatory. This is exactly what Radial Engineering thought of, since a really sparse explanation was included and saved here: everything black / white. On the manufacturer home page you can find a nice manual with colored pictures.
I was looking for a device for the perfect CLEAN sound. And that is exactly what I found here. The overdrive button distorts the sound intentionally powerful. But what is really super: the overdrive button can be used to activate the effect loop (ie external effects). If necessary, you can overdrive the overdrive sound over the loop. For this effect loop there is of course (at the price!) Its own loop-in / out.
Who is the target group for the device? People / bands who want to use different basses. E-bass and semi-acousitc bass, for example. With the two inputs you can adjust EVERY input independently. Active and passive bass are easy to change. Allow both basses to be plugged in and only activate the other by means of a foot switch. If you only want to use a bass, has 2 sound settings plus the Overdrive.
For beginners the device is certainly also suitable. Instead of a small bass combo one can invest the money here and does not disturb the neighbors or their own children while practicing. Headphones ran and off it goes. Well and if you are often on tour, you can practice here with HIS sound.
All in all VERY LOVELY device. The price may not deter you. The quality of the sound and the processing are 1A.
