Back in the day, when bassists wanted to get the fullest live bass tone possible - retaining their thunderous low ends and amplifying their mids and top ends separately - a massive live undertaking was required. This process known as "Bi-Amping" was put in practice by sending a bass signal to a bass and guitar amp simultaneously. Tonally transcendent live performances were abound, but this whole process was complicated and required huge investment on the part of the bassist. Where does that leave Bi-Amping today, you ask?
The Orange Bass Butler Bi-Amp Bass Pre pre-amp pedal touches down to provide a similar bi-amping experience for the modern bassist. Featuring two completely separate, parallel, analog signal chains, your bass signal is split at input for the bi-amping magic to begin immediately. The pedal, featuring a Bass channel and Guitar channel, gives you all the control over the bi-amp experience. Sculpt your bass tones to your liking for rumbling lows and clear highs all within one pedal.
Additional functions of the Bass Butler include two individual XLR outputs from the two separate channels to reach the mixing desk simply. The Guitar channel's guitar cab-simulated balanced D.I. output and expression pedal connectivity build on the Bass Butler's functions. A Ground Lift switch enhances this direct out function even further.
Finally, the Bass Butler's Amp output takes a blend of the two channels before the cabinet simulation circuits from a 1/4" jack for connecting to the front end of any bass amplifier. Controlled by channel volume controls, the blend you can set for your on-stage sound can be different from what your audience hears. With functions like these, the Bass Butler opens up an entire world of bi-amping beauty previously unheard of.
