Ampeg Introduces Two New Bass Pedals at NAMM

Ampeg Classic and Scrambler PedalsAmpeg launched two new pedals at the Winter NAMM Show this year with the Classic analog bass preamp and Scrambler bass overdrive. The pedals represent either side of Ampeg’s other pedal offering, the SCR-DI, into two smaller focused pedals.

The Classic pedal allows for dialing in an Ampeg tone with its three-band tone stack as well as Ultra-Lo and Ultra-Hi switches. The Scrambler overdrive dishes out grinding tone with Drive, Treble, and Volume controls for dialing in your overdrive. A Blend knob lets you dial in your dry signal for balance.

Each pedal features a true bypass, analog design housed in an all-metal chassis. They are powered by either a 9V DC power supply or 9-volt battery.

The Ampeg Classic analog bass preamp and Scrambler bass overdrive pedals will be shipping in April with price points around $99.99.
