Clean as clean can be - und overdrive dazu
Gerhard335, 07.12.2014
muss gestehen, der Kauf war mit einem gewissen Risiko behaftet, da ich keine tauglichen Bewertungen dieses Bass Powergeräts fand. Die zum Kaufzeitpunkt eruierbaren Tests und Userrezensionen betrafen das Gerät "Tonebone", was das Vorgängermodell aus dem Hause Radial Engineering war.

Bericht aus Sicht eines "Roadies":
Das Gerät wiegt 1,13 Kilogramm und hat folgende Maße: 10,7x20,3x48mm. Insgesamt verfügt es über 8 Ein/Ausgänge.
Von den vier Ausgängen ist einer für Kopfhörer, einer DI XLR Out und einer für Tuner-Geräte. Naja und einer für die Anbindung an den Bühnen-Bassverstärker.
Die Eingänge für die Bassgitarren befinden sich auf der rechten Seite des Geräts, die Stromversorgung links hinten. Der eingebaute Kabel-Clip (Hartplastikschiene mit Metallschraube) verhindert ein ungewolltes herausziehen des Stromsteckers aus dem BassboneOD.

Bericht aus Sicht eines Bassisten:
Also das Gerät braucht nicht wirklich eine Bedienungsanleitung, da alles selbsterklärend ist. Genau das hat sich auch Radial Engineering gedacht, da eine wirklich spärliche Erklärung beiliegt und hier noch gespart wurde: alles black/white. Auf der Herstellerhomepage findet man aber ein nettes Manual mit farbigen Bildern.

Ich war auf der Suche nach einem Gerät für den perfekten CLEAN Sound. Und genau das habe ich hier gefunden. Der Overdrive-Button verzerrt den Klang gewollt mächtig. Was aber wirklich super ist: den Overdrive-Button kann man aber zur Aktivierung der Effekt-Schleife verwenden (also externe Effektgeräte). Bei Bedarf kann man den Overdrive-Sound noch über die Schleife drüberlegen. Für diesen Effekt-Loop gibt es natürlich (bei dem Preis!) einen eigenen Schleifen-In/Out.

Wer ist Zielgruppe für das Gerät????
Leute/Bands, die verschiedene Bässe einsetzen wollen. E-Bass und Semi-Acousitc-Bass zum Beispiel. Mit den zwei Eingängen kann man JEDEN Eingang eigenständig einstellen. Aktiver und Passiver E-Bass sind leicht zu wechseln. Beide Bässe angesteckt lassen und nur per Fußschalter den anderen aktivieren. Wer nur einen Bass verwenden will, hat 2 Soundeinstellungsmöglichkeiten plus den Overdrive.

Für Anfänger ist das Gerät sicher auch geeignet. Anstatt eines kleinen Basscombos kann man hier das Geld investieren und stört damit weder die Nachbarn noch die eigenen Kinder beim Üben. Kopfhörer ran und ab geht es.
Naja und wenn man öfter mal auf Tour ist, kann man hier mit SEINEM Sound üben.

all in all SEHR TOLLES Gerät. Der Preis darf einen halt nicht abschrecken. Die Qualität des Sounds und die Verarbeitung sind 1A.

Radial Engineering Bassbone OD. una favola!
palpucci, 03.04.2019
ho sempre apprezzato i prodotti radial. dal 2009, partendo dal pz-pre fino a questo bassbone od, passando per varie d.i. ed altri pedaloni tonebone.
il pedale in oggetto è ben ingegnerato e scolpito ed ha un buonissimo suono molto pulito. due sezioni con pre ed eq, mute switch e overdrive che, a settaggi estremi, suona quasi fuzzy. il controllo drag simile a quello della firefly, è grandioso. fondamentale il controllo mix dell'overdrive per mantenere le basse frequenze anche con suono sporco. il taglio basse permette di ottenere un suono molto chitarristico e con l'aggiunta di od si possono suonare i sebadoh e fingersi lou barlow. lo ritengo superiore al bassbone originale che mi è sempre sembrato un po' freddino.
comincia una nuova stagione bassistica. ne sono felice.
saluti

Top-Universalpreamp für Bass
O825, 29.06.2020
Hochwertige "wunschlos-glücklich" Schaltzentrale für Bassisten. Egal ob zum Umschalten zwischen zwei Instrumenten oder als Preamp für einen Bass - der Bassbone hat alle nötigen Features: Einen praxistauglichen EQ mit Lowcut, alle nötigen In- und Outputs, eine hervorragend klingende DI und als Dreingabe noch einen Verzerrer. Trotz des Piezo-Boosters klingt für Kontrabass m.E. der RMI Basswitch noch etwas klarer & direkter. Dafür ist der Bassbone aber mit seiner doppelten Klangregelung flexibler und macht durch den etwas wärmeren Grundsound mit dem E-Bass eine bessere Figur.

Very versatile pre-amp/DI
07.05.2016
With an input that is switchable to match both active and passive bass guitars, the Bassbone OD is, in essence, an active DI box optimised for use with bass guitars, incorporating a two channel pre-amp and an overdrive. The equaliser settings are chosen to suit the characteristics of the bass guitar and can be cut or boosted at frequencies of 250z, 500Hz, and 1kHz with a generous cut/boost range of ±18dB. Power for the unit comes from an included 15V mains adaptor or from a pair of 9V batteries. Most DI boxes can operate from phantom power, but this one can?t. In fact this little box includes a number of features and options that are not immediately obvious, so a quick tour of the front and rear panels is probably the quickest way to get to know it.
On the top there are three footswitches, one for switching between channels A and B, one Mute switch and the overdrive channel footswitch. The two pre-amp channels both have their own gain and EQ controls, and can be used with one input (to switch between two channels), or to assign two inputs (two basses) to.
On the rear panel are jacks for both the line out and the built in effects loop, which is switchable to either be activated with the OD channel footswitch or to be always on. Furthermore there?s avery low-impedance balanced XLR output that can drive long cables where required. The tuner output is really intended for hooking up to a tuner, and my only concern here is that it would be very easy to plug into the amp output by mistake, which could risk cooking your tuner. The unit also has a stereo Aux input on a 3.5mm mini-jack. This signal is mixed with the bass sound to feed the main and phones outputs.
All in all the Bassbone OD is a great tool for live, as well as in the studio. Do recommend.
