Excellent bass preamp
Nole, 05.07.2020
I'm using this pre-amp for gigs mainly and occasional studio recording. For 2 years i didn't have any problems with the pre-amp. The sound is good, features are excel lent especially the feature where you can blend the sound of other pedals. All around great device.
The only downside I have is a very bad quality power adapter. The cable is plastic very fragile. Pre-amp was made in Canada and power adapter in China. After maybe a month of use cable cracked and you could see wires inside so I had to buy new adapter. That's why 3 stars for quality but the device is 5 stars.

Great
Quinfo, 13.02.2018
Super piece of kit. I never gig without it. I use it in all sorts of venues, small and large. I pair it with my Markbass CMD121p and New York extension cab. The dual channels is great for quickly switching tones when you need to slap for a bit or even boost your volume. I don't use the boost switch I have it set to mute which is great for tuning.

I've gone through multiple different DI boxes and this is the one I've settled on as the tone I get out if it is perfect for me.

Great preamp for piezo elements
HCHC, 24.09.2019
I use this preamp with my NS WAV EUB and it works great.

Thanks to the high input impedance of channel 2 it really brings the bass to life. I use the boost as the mute function and the loop for my effect pedals and have no complains.

Very sturdy and well put together. The only minus it that they decided to go for a 15 v adapter, so it won't work with most pedal board power supplies.

Sauberer Sound und tolle Verarbeitung
Timi_, 05.05.2018
Ich war auf der Suche nach einem Preamp/DI-Box für Auftritte, Aufnahmen und Proben.

Der Bassbone ist sehr intuitiv zu bedienen und und hat viele Features:
Zum Einen kann er zwei Bässe Einpegeln zwischen denen man per Fußschalter wechseln kann. Zum Anderen existiert eine Effektschleife, mit der man externe Effekte in das Signal einmischen kann. Hierfür gibt es einen Dry/Wet-Schalter und einen Fußschalter, um die Schleife zu aktivieren.
Die Bedienung der Effektschleife hat mir bei diesem Gerät bisher am besten gefallen im Gegensatz zu vergleichbaren Produkten.
Vom Sound her hat der Bassbone ebenfalls die Nase vorn.
Nur der Lehle Bassswitch hatte nen bisschen saubereren Sound.
Ein bisschen nervig finde ich die Tatsache, dass man mit einem Schraubenzieher die Knöpfe an der Seite betätigen muss, um zwischen den Funktionen des Fußschalters umzuschalten.

Alles in Allem kann ich das Gerät nur empfehlen.
Ich hab mich jedoch für den Mesa Subway Preamp entschieden, da ich mehr Anschlussmöglichkeiten benötige und momentan keine Zwei Bässe Einpegeln muss.
