BMAX

The BMAX is a bass preamp/ processor with the warmth and dynamic range usually found in all-tube designs and delivers the punch and clarity of the best tube preamplifiers.

At the heart of the BMAX is a class A/B front-end, the input of which emulates the loading effect that the input of classic-design tube preamp would present to the bass pickups, and one of the key aspects in the warmth and punch of tube preamps. The DI section is pure and clean with electronically balanced output.
