The Basswitch Clean Boost was born out of the idea to buy the Basswitch IQ DI another full-fledged channel. This compact preamp combines the boostfunction of the Basswitch IQ DI with a 3-band-eq that has been especially voiced for a clean sound. Additionnaly the treble control combines a passive high frequencies reduction with an active high frequency boost. The EQ of the Basswitch Clean Boost has the feel of a mixing console channel to it and allows a strong bending of the basic signal. It consigns a wonderfully tidy soundscape and your instrument will receive a new sonic shine. The Basswitch Clean Boost allows gain adjustment of +/- 15 dB and can be used as a stand-alone booster, it can be teamed up with the Basswitch IQ DI for more options or work as a compact standalone preamp in front of an active monitor or bass cab. The approved Lehle True Sound Technology ensures a great tone: starting from the discrete JFET input stage, up to the switching via gold-plated relais this booster offers a more than studio-standard dynamic range of over 110 dB with very little noise. The Basswitch Clean Boost works internally with 18 V, but is content with all power supplies between 9 – 15 V AC or DC. The extremely robust construction with its protected controls and indestructable switching mechanism will provide many years of joy with clean boosting.
Q: What is the effect of an impedance converter? A: The sound will be freshened up and signal loss through long cable runs will be compensated.
Q: How can I compensate the signal loss on my effects board? A: By using an impedance converter, which provides a high impedance input socket for the instrument signal and a low impedance output signal that is more resistent against loss.
Q: What is Lehle True Sound Technology? A: Lehle True Sound Technology is based on individual measures that follow one common goal: transporting the sound and character of the instrument in the best way possible, without any negative alteration. It achieves an open and dynamic sound without losing any detail. The buffers are designed to easily transmit within the megaherz-range. The Lehle True Sound technology uses either goldplated relais or goldplated switches, even the smallest currents will be transported without any degradation for many years to come.
