BOSS - 'BB-1X'

THE MODERN SOLUTION FOR THE MODERN BASSISTThe BOSS BB-1X Bass Driver is a high-end stompbox made to enhance your bass tone with extra punch and resonance. The BB-1X is more than just a standard compact bass pedal, it works like a preamp, a crucial component in creating quality sound. Capturing the essence and subtle nuances of your bass, amp, and playing, whilst making all their best characteristics shine.

Using BOSS’ latest MDP technology, the BB-1X provides a wide range of superior sounds, from natural clean tones to heavy distortion. It reacts and responds to any playing style or register, but without losing the body and natural tone of your instrument. The BB-1X’s harmonically rich distortion maintains the high definition and dynamics found in the finer details of your tone.

The BB-1X provides a clear sonic addition to enhance your sound, keeping clarity on the low end. With the Blend control, you can easily adjust your tone by blending the direct signal with the effect sound. Low, High, and Drive knobs give you an extremely wide range of tonal options. These controls dont just shape the frequencies, but change the characteristics of the tone too.

The Line Out jack on the BB-1X goes further than a standard DI out, giving you a newly crafted and enhanced direct sound for impacting larger audiences through a PA system. The “1X” in the BB-1X’s name represents the pedal’s premium look, sound, and feel. If you’re defining your standard tone or spicing up your sound for soloing, the BB-1X Bass Driver is a fine tool for every modern bassist.

At A Glance • Bold, punchy sound that invigorates the original tone and responsiveness of your bass and amp
• Contains BOSS’ latest distortion, which adapts to every register and never muffles your low end
• Blend knob allows for mixing the direct signal with the effect signal
• Independent Low and High knobs for ultra-wide tonal adjustment

Much More Than a Normal Bass Stompbox

Endless PossibilitiesThe BB-1X works more like a preamp and DI that enhances and refines your entire sound. Whilst many preamps color your sound or drastically change its character, the BB-1X is different. It enhances the natural characteristics of your bass and amp, along with the finer details of your playing style. The BB-1X Bass Driver takes your standard rig and makes it sound even better!

All bassists thrive on body, punch, and other crucial sound elements, whilst needing a wide range of adjustability to achieve their core tone. This is where the BB-1X really stands out.

Using BOSS' latest technology, you have endless possibilities for producing a complete professional sound. In combination with the High and Low tone controls, the Blend knob gives you exceptional adjustability to dial in the perfect balance to nail your personal tone.

The BB-1X Sound Isn’t Smoke and Mirrors

Complete Your ToneTo get a punchy sound with standard bass pedals, the frequency range is usually narrowed down, resulting in an unnatural sound. The low end can also get muddy when trying to shape a transparent, high-definition distortion tone. As the distortion level is increased, the dynamic response is decreased, which limits your musical expression.

Thanks to advanced BOSS techology, the BB-1X analyzes the bass signal from multiple different dimensions in real time. A huge amount of processing is performed according to the instrument, playing style, phrasing, dynamics, and more.

Offering a wide range of possibilities to shape and enhance your sound without changing the fundamental tone of your instrument and amp. Combining solid low end with natural-sounding, high-definition distortion, the BB-1X delivers the dynamic response required to reflect the unique individual expression of every modern bassist.

Specially Tuned Line Out Jack

Impressive Direct SoundOn stage, the bass signal is typically split into two individual outputs using a DI box: one output goes to your bass amp, while the second output goes directly to the PA. The BB-1X features a convenient balanced Line Out jack that functions as a DI when you need it. But make no mistake, this is not your basic line out, BOSS has specially tuned it for superior tone.

The signature stage sound made with your amplifier and the DI sound presented to the audience can sound quite different, due to the PA engineer’s main consideration to make an overall balanced sound of the whole mix. After working with many top bassists and pro PA engineers, BOSS carefully considered their suggestions and incorporated some unique enhancements into the BB-1X’s Line Out.

The body and core tone produced by the BB-1X’s Line Out is not the result of just boosting the low end, which can result in an unbalanced band mix through the PA. Its effective tuning provides a full spectrum of balanced sound, while never losing the body, punch, and presence of your individual tone.

BOSS provide you with the best of both worlds with the BB-1X, giving you an output to your amplifier for the stage sound you love, plus a separate DI that delivers optimized tone to the PA engineer for house sound you can rely on.
