Paranormal Bass Box

Seymour Duncan/Basslines tell us that their new SFX-06 Paranormal Bass EQ Direct Box is not your ordinary direct box. Like all DIs, it sports a balanced line out XLR jack with ground lift so you can feed a front-of-house mixing board or a recording console with no loss of signal, but that’s where the similarities end, because the Paranormal also features three bands of active EQ specifically optimized for bass. This allows the bass player to dial in their tone in any room, sculpting lows, mids, and highs quickly and easily with up to 12dB of boost or cut for each band of EQ. Seymour Duncan say that it’s the perfect solution for bassists who want the flexibility of an active system but don’t want to modify their instrument.
The SFX-06 also features Basslines’ proprietary Slap Contour switch, which applies an additional preset EQ curve to whatever settings you’ve chosen with the 3-band EQ to produces a tone that the makers say is perfect for slap playing but also works great as an alternate sound for fingerstyle or pick playing.
The Paranormal runs on a single 9-volt battery or a regulated DC power supply and features true bypass.
