Use it as a preamp, an active direct box, or an A/B switcher/blender!
The MicroBass II is a powerful, versatile tool for bassists, with functions that include an active direct box, a one- or two-channel preamp, and an A/B switcher/blender. The two channels provide sound shaping from high-end, solid-state types to distorted timbres using the tube-emulation circuitry found in the EBS range of bass amp heads. An incorporated effects loop offers even more flexibility for connecting other effects or for mixing in an external audio source.
The balanced output with speaker simulator option provides unmatched flexibility in live and studio situations. Footswitches control mute and channel operation/switching.
Other features of the MicroBass II include headphone output; low battery indicator; link and master outputs; bass, sweepable midrange, treble, bright, and edge filters; drive and effects mix controls.
