Maxon Introduces the BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver

Maxon BD10 Bass DriverMaxon has announced the BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver, a bass overdrive pedal that features a symmetrical clipping circuit for “heavy yet articulate distortion.” The company teamed up with famed Japanese bassist Masaki to design the unit to keep up with extended techniques.

The BD10 has a dedicated clean level for mixing in your dry signal. It also boosts up to +6dB, allowing it to act as a semi-clean boost or as a linedriver for your signal chain. Grit is added with the Drive knob to dial in the amount of distortion, while a Drive Level knob controls the level of the driven signal with up to 14dB of boost. Finally, individual bass and treble knobs give further tonal tweaking ability.

The Maxon BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver is available now with a direct price of $169.
