TC Electronic has expanded their bass offerings with the SpectraDrive, a bass preamp and line driver that the company calls a powerful tone tool for bass players. Its preamp section is taken from their BH800 head and features a four-band EQ plus TonePrint compression from their SpectraComp effect.
“But the real power of SpectraDrive is the custom built studio-grade DI with switches for pre/post-EQ, ground/lift, and line/instrument level, which allows you to control your sound through the house PA from the stage,” TC Electronic writes. “Add to that a TonePrint TubeDrive circuit with a separate footswitch to cover your low-end in an array of different dirts while the built-in BonaFide Buffer keeps your tone crisp and loud no matter the distance.”
The TC Electronic SpectraDrive will be shipping in the second quarter of the year with a price of $199.99.
