Tech 21 SansAmp VT Bass DI Pedal Now Shipping

Tech 21 SansAmp VT Bass DI PedalTech 21 is now shipping the VT Bass DI Pedal. First introduced at this year’s Winter NAMM show, the VT Bass DI puts the company’s VT Bass preamp into a direct box format with three outputs: 1/4 Inch, XLR, and Parallel.

The DI’s Blend knob lets you control the amount of direct signal with the SansAmp circuitry to get the right balance. The pedal also has a 3-band EQ, a “Bite” switch treble boost, and Character knob, which the company says gives tones from the early ’60s up to modern day crunch.

The Tech 21 VT Bass DI Pedal is shipping now with a street price of $209. Its rackmount companion will be available in the next few weeks. For more, check out the Tech 21 website.
