All The Basses You Need In One Instrument
It's a bass, Jim, but not as we know it...

Following in the footsteps of their Variax 6-string and Variax Acoustic models, Line 6 have announced the launch of Variax Bass 700, the first bass that accurately models vintage and modern electric basses, an acoustic upright, plus synth bass tones. Variax Bass 700 uses Line 6's patented guitar modelling to provide instant access to sounds never before available in a single instrument. Its simple, stand-alone operation offers 24 authentic bass sounds all in a single, professional grade instrument. Its output can be sent direct to any standard bass amplifier, mixing console, or recording device. Rich Lasner, Director of Instrument Product Lines at Line 6 had this to say about the new instrument, “Variax Bass 700’s simple layout combines the best of passive and active electronic controls in one practical, problem-solving, pro quality system. No other bass enables artists playing live or in the studio to instantly call up a modern 4-string, vintage 8-string, acoustic upright, fretless, or synth bass,” Main Features
