New Stompboxes For Bassists


Pigtronix has announced the launch of three new pedals, specifically designed for bass players. Pigtronix tells us that, while much of their  product line has been embraced by bass luminaries such as Bakithi Kumalo, Billy Sheehan and Norwood Fisher, these new bass pedals have been fine-tuned using rock star input and years of customer feedback to provide a streamlined solution for bassists at all levels. Here's their description of each:

The all new Bass Envelope Phaser features a straight ahead, no-nonsense design that is guaranteed to blow up the dance floor with its earth shaking low end and unique, vowel like articulation. Included in this new design is the Pigtronix staccato envelope circuit, which auto closes the envelope between notes, for un-matched performance with high speed finger techniques and slap bass.

Pigtronix Philosopher Bass Compressor brings the heralded Philosopher's Tone compressor circuit to bassists with infinite clean sustain, a blend knob for preserving natural string attack via parallel compression and a harmonic distortion tuned especially for low frequency domination. Never before has so much bass friendly compression been squeezed into such a small package.

The Bass Fat Drive leverages Pigtronix CMOS clipping concept to sculpt a larger than life sound that breaks up based on how hard you hit the strings. The Bass FAT Drive provides an extra wide range of touch sensitive gain courtesy of its "MORE" switch and sports a bass specific low pass filter for total transparency and robust bottom.

A pigtronix spokesperson told us, "Packing enormous low end wallop into a tiny footprint at an affordable price, the new Pigtronix Bass pedals are handmade in Long Island, USA. Come experience them for yourself at NAMM Booth 5218 in Hall B."
