EBS Micro Bass II

Bass Preamp/DI Box

The Swedish company EBS has existed since 1988. It caters primarily to the needs of bass players, and since the staff is rumoured to consist of bass players themselves, it is not surprising that products are developed to leave the hearts of bassists excited. Especially with regard to effects devices, bass players were most often neglected. A major problem has always been the fact that most effects deteriorate the frequencies precisely in the range that is crucial for proper bass guitar sound, namely in the low frequencies. So it is of little surprise, that the EBS-effects are really unproblematic in that area and otherwise have a lot of really interesting features to offer as well. Already in 1993, EBS presented their first preamp, the EBS Micro Bass.

The Micro Bass II is incredibly versatile for example as an active DI box, as one or two channel preamp, instrument switcher or mixer. With its two channels the Micro Bass II covers all sound variations. It is equipped with the award winning tube simulation circuitry that was previously reserved for the more expensive EBS Bass Heads. A variable effect Loop provides the musician with additional flexibility for the connection of another pedal or for mixing an external audio source for example a CD player for practice purposes. The balanced studio output with speakersimulaton provides versatile flexibility. Live or in the studio. With the two footswitches to switch A/B channels and the mute switch to mute one of them.

Other important features of the little goblin are headphone output, battery status indicator, link and master outputs, bass, tuneable mid, treble, bright and edge filter, drive and effects mix control.

Good little tool

Leif H., 19.02.2014
Hello,

as I'm using the MicroBass II for a year now, I'm confident enough to write a little review for this awesome tool. Even if I have not used it for many concerts.

The Pedal has a nice board size and is very solid and heavy. I'm sure it can withstand far more than I would ever do with it. The outer materal is made of steel with rounded edges. The sockets are stable and provide a good protection, the pots are a bit tight and very close together, which protects them from being accidentally adjusted.

Headphone amp

One of my fields of application, among other things, is the use as a practice amp with headphones. While you hear a clicking sound in the headphones whenever you plug another cable in, it is a variable tool for practising and with the mix control it is even possible to play along with a backing track.

Sound

Personally, I find the EQ settings and options chosen very well, for my taste, to form a good sound. Even if the Drive channel does not really reflect quite my ideal sound, the Micro Bass II is a nice preamp, that doesn't influence your sound to much.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a nice, "small" preamp to use, whenever you don't want to bring your AMP along for a gig and you have the chance to go over the PA System, the MicroBass II ist a good choice. But you need to be sure about the missing Volume controll for both channels, so if you want to use it that way, for 2 different kind of basses, the adjusment need a bit more work and can't really be archived without one bass to cut a bit back.

Excellent bass amp

AltaRichard, 19.05.2013
There are a lot of sounds available in this little unit and a nice valve drive emulation section. Some of the buttons are a little small and you might need a torch to adjust things on stage but overall this is a great product and is particularly useful for high quality headphone practice.
