Sadowsky SBP-2 Preamp Floor Pedal Sadowsky Preamp/DI Floor Pedal Sadowsky Metro Express MV5E Tobacco Burst

Sadowsky's famous preamp pedal, in a smaller footprint!

Sadowsky released a new version of their popular preamp pedal. The new SBP-2 has the same famous circuit that goes on all Sadowsky basses—just like the original Sadowsky Preamp/DI pedal—but with a slimmed down design and smaller footprint, perfect for crammed pedalboards as well as vintage basses where onboard preamp installation would affect resale value. It works with all passive basses, active pickups, and upright bass pickups.

Sadowsky Bass Preamp Specs:

Frequency Response: 5Hz-20.9kHz

Power Source: 9V Batter

Battery Life: 870 Hours

Bass Control: + 13dB Boost @ 40Hz

Treble Control: + 13dB Boost @ 4kHz

Total Harmonic Distortion: 0.18% @ 1kHz

Output Impedance: 1K Ohm

The Sadowsky Outboard Bass Preamp/DI Pedal contains the same famous circuitry built into every Sadowsky bass. Housed in a small footpedal box for use on the floor, it measures just 4.5" x 4.5" x 2.25" and weighs 1.5 pounds. Just plug your bass into the box and then go from the box to your amp, and/or direct to the board. Controls consist of volume, treble boost and bass boost. The Preamp/DI Pedal is perfect for vintage basses where installation of an onboard preamp would affect the instrument's original condition and resale value. The Preamp/DI pedal is recommended for all passive basses, basses with active pickups, and instruments that have active electronics that can be bypassed. It also works great with all upright bass pickups. Features: Independent Bass and Treble Boost, Active/Passive Footswitch w/ LED, Mute Switch w/ Tuner Out, 1/4" Out, XLR Out w/ Ground Lift Switch, Low Battery Indicator LED, Easy-Access Battery Compartment, Optional AC Adapter, Great for Upright Basses!
