“Ampeg tones in high quality analog stomp boxes. It’s just that simple,” remarks John Boudreau, SVP of Ampeg Product Development. “The flexibility to punch in legendary bass tone right from your pedalboard whenever you need it is a new realm for any Ampeg-loving player.”

The Classic Analog Bass Preamp pedal allows the player to dial in a wide range of authentic Ampeg tones with the 3-band tone stack and highly flexible Ultra-Hi and Ultra-Lo circuits. The Scrambler Bass Overdrive pedal delivers a huge range of overdrive, from subtle to screaming. Players can add in a touch of highs, then blend in with the dry signal to create their custom Ampeg tone. Both pedals feature an all-analog, true bypass design with class-leading signal-to-noise ratio built into all-metal enclosures made to survive the rigors of the road.

“There’s a lot of Ampeg wannabe pedals out there, some at unnecessarily high prices,” concludes Boudreau. “Get real, all-analog, all-Ampeg stomp boxes at a price that makes sense for bass players at any level.”

Thanks in large part to the runaway success of the SCR-DI Bass DI, the two new pedals have created quite a buzz since their introduction in January. Now bassists everywhere can get their hands on them. For a video overview of the new pedals, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHHG21cvHLE.

Ampeg Delivers Perfect Tone for Chesney Bassist Harmoni Kelley

San Diego, CA—August 2017… A musician named Harmoni is sort of like a baseball player named Homer: It’s a great name if you can live up to it. Bass ace and vocalist Harmoni Kelley proved she could do that long ago, earning accolades as a session and touring player in Austin and Nashville before her recent move to Southern California.Kelley was named Bassist of the Year at the 2009-2010 Austin Music Awards, and she just keeps getting better. In 2015, country superstar Kenny Chesney tapped the hard-rocking yet versatile Kelley to carry the bottom end in his band, praising her melodic sense and rhythmic drive in a July 2015 Rolling Stone interview.“Bass is my first instrument and has pretty much been my only instrument,” offers Kelley. “I started playing bass when I was 17 years old; I was a really big Guns ‘n’ Roses fan, and I saw Duff McKagan onstage, and I thought, I want to be that guy. I want to get onstage and rock. The bass called to me; it ties everything together and makes everything move. The bass tone I prefer has a warm, buttery kind of tone, and it’s like molasses and honey, dripping and oozing. I stay away from the high-end treble sound that a lot of bass players like. That sound is great but I get my sound with an old Fender ‘P’ bass with flatwound strings through an Ampeg tube amp. To me, that’s the perfect bass tone.”
