Carl Martin has unveiled their new Bass Drive pedal, which the company says has been in the works for several years. Built in Denmark, the pedal employs a 12AX7 in the circuit for classic tube tone growl as well as fatness and extra sustain.
Besides the Level and Gain controls, the Bass Drive has a 3-band EQ for dialing in your tone. It’s also travel-ready as it features a 115-240V switchable built-in main power supply.
The Carl Martin Bass Drive pedal will be available in the coming months with a U.S. retail price of $389. For more, check out the Carl Martin website.
