Amazing pedal
ToneArt Sound, 28.11.2019
Really good pedal, we use it for recording and for live without any amp - goes directly to our in-ears and to the PA. Super easy to use, great for live with the presets. The sound is also amazing, but take your time to test the sound, and avoid pushing the settings a lot unless you are 100% sure you like it - a small move on a knob makes quite a big difference!
On top of that the possibility to power it via Phantom Power is just really really well thought for live environments! :D

Great addition to any bass set up
Hassey , 29.01.2014
The tech 21 sansamp is a pedal that is always in my kit box at every gig. Very handy to have as helps out in many scenarios. The through Di when the pedal is not in use is very good and clean leaving you to send a good unaffected signal to the sound desk. Then you have up to 3 further saved sounds to work from at any given point without any adjustment allowing you up to 4 different tones even within one song with only just stamping on different channels. All of the channels are fully programmable and each adjustment on any of the Eq's , Drive, Gain, Blend, Output individually is made easy with a flickering light meter that shows you visually as you turn the controls where your last setting was saved. It is very versatile with a massive range of sounds for both studio and live shows. I have used this on quite a few occasions in the studio where I did not put the bass through an amp, just straight into the sansamp , dial up a sound and press record and I have used it in many different Pubs/Clubs/Theatres/Festivals and have always been confident with the results. Due to the strong build quality I know having bought it once it will stay with me for a very long time to come

Bring on the thunder!
26.03.2014
As a bass player for over 20 years, I 've grown lazy over the years since bass equipment tend to weigh a lot. Imagine the feeling when a buddy of mine recommended this preamp and all of a sudden I had a really nice sound at all times, and it fit in the gigbag to boot!

The BDDI has a really nice standard tone and with a little tweaking you can get it to growl nicely as well. The one thing I missed the most was the lack of mid control. You get to cut / boost bass, treble and gain, but that's pretty much all.

Still, it sure beats dragging around heavy amps and cabs to every gig. :)

Indispensable
20.12.2015
Amazing bit of a kit. Turned onto this by Jamie King of Fighting With Wire. A 3 piece band which had a massive sound live due in part to the Bass Driver. Like Jamie and Jeremy Pritchard from Everything Everything I use the Bass Driver as my go to EQ by bypassing the EQ on my Trace Elliot and going directly into the effects return. I've also used this in the studio by di-ing straight into the desk and of course making use of the phantom power capability. What I love about it is I can take my "sound" anywhere with me and if for one reason or another my amp does fail I know I can still rely on going through the PA. obviously the programmable driver has the additional benefits of storing multiple sound settings. If mine broke tomorrow I would be gutted but wouldn't hesitate in buying another.
