Back in the good ol’ days, it was a popular practice to
send a bass guitar signal to a bass amp and a guitar
amp at the same time – known as Bi-Amping. This
allows the player to keep their low end deep, clean
and defined whilst amplifying the mids and top end
separately, adding distortion or crisp highs with
total control.

This type of setup can produce some enormous tones
but typically requires a huge and complicated rig, only
possible if you’re Rock ‘n’ Roll royalty. But, if you have
to get all this together by yourself? Forget it!

BASS CHANNEL:

The always-on Bass Channel has a simple but effective control layout of Compression, Bass, Treble and Volume. A Class A optical compressor circuit, cut/boost tone controls and dedicated, bass cabinet-simulated balanced D.I. output are always on hand with all manner of classic clean tones. From the depths of Dub to the heights of hi-fi, The Bass Butler has it all polished up and ready, like your best pair of shoes.

GUITAR CHANNEL:

Whether you need mayhem, musicality or a mere modicum of mischief, this classic high-gain guitar channel won’t disappoint. Five familiar controls and four gain stages that can clean right up are summoned with one kick of the footswitch, serving up everything from bright vintage tones to floor-splitting, wall-crumbling modern destruction. Coupled with a guitar cab-simulated balanced D.I. output and an expression pedal jack for extra control over the input gain, this really is a plentiful platter, pleasing to the even pickiest of players.

DIRECT AND TO-THE-POINT

The Bass Butler’s two individual XLR outputs from the two separate channels mean that your finished Bi-Amp bass tone makes it to the mixing desk with nothing left to do except blend to taste, with a Ground Lift switch for solving any ground loop issues. It’s the same story in the studio, but that’s not all…

The Bass Butler also features an Amp output, which takes a blend of the two channels before the cabinet simulation circuits from a 1/4” jack – perfect for connecting to the front end of any bass amp. The blend is set by the channel volume controls, meaning you can control your on-stage sound completely independently of what the audience hear. In fact, you can even use this output on its own, just like a plain old preamp pedal.

FIVE-STAR QUALITY

As The Bass Butler is the ultimate fly rig, the perfect studio tool and quite possibly the only pedal you’ll ever need, it has to be built to last. A sturdy steel enclosure, 18V DC power for high headroom, and all-round road-ready ruggedness mean that The Bass Butler is willing and waiting for a lifetime in your service.
