Whether it's clean thump or dirty earthquaking rump, the VT Bass 300 will inspire you with its wide array of tonal possibilities. Adapted from the heart of our SansAmp Character Series VT Bass pedal, you can dial up the chunky funk of the ubiquitous flip top and the higher gain growl of indie rock. Want more? Lean on the Character control for the fat distortion of Tool, Audioslave and Muse.
Rated at 300 analog watts (translation: really loud), the VT Bass 300 has two channels that deliver everything from warm classic tube tones to Sumo-sized distortion. The unique, continuously-variable Character control moves seamlessly between decades of different voicings, covering vintage, high-gain and face-melting tones. Features include a +10dB gain switch to enhance low output pickups and drive active pickups harder, and a SansAmp XLR Direct Output to quake the bedrock live and in the studio.
SansAmp XLR Output works like a built-in direct box to deliver the true tone of the amp to the PA desk or studio board without compromising detail, warmth or responsiveness. The XLR is switchable from -20dB to 0dB.
Gain is a 10dB gain boost to set up the pre-amp for different pickups. For example, with lower output passive pickups, you can have punchier sounds with Gain engaged. Conversely, with higher output active pickups, you can have a cleaner sound with Gain disengaged.
Tuner Output is an independent buffered output to provide a constant unaffected signal.
1/4” speaker outputs.
