Trace Elliot Announces the Transit B Bass Guitar Preamp Pedal

Trace Elliot Transit B Preamp Pedal

Along with the launch of their micro ELF bass amp at the NAMM Show this year, Trace Elliot returned with the Transit B Bass Guitar Preamp Pedal. The versatile preamp offers a host of controls with a pre-shape to dial in the classic Trace Elliot EQ curve, a dual-band compressor, a drive section, and a 5-band semi-parametric EQ.

The compressor has knobs for both the low and hi bands, while the drive section has a drive knob and a blend knob for dialing in your grit. The EQ can be set pre or post compressor while a bass enhancement switch gives the low end some extra boost. A dedicated mute/tune footswitch activates the built-in chromatic tuner, which also allows the back-lit control panel to guide your tuning.

For connectivity, the Transit B has an XLR balanced output, a dry output, and a headphone output. It ships in an embroidered nylon carry bag with a CD-ROM with the owner’s manual, REAPER DAW software and Peavey ReValver amp modeling software.

The Trace Elliot Transit B Preamp Pedal will be shipping later this year with an MSRP of $399.99.
