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.
