Providence Effects Announces the Dual Bass Station Preamp

Providence Dual Bass Station PreamplifierProvidence Effects has announced the new Dual Bass Station, a bass preamplifier in pedal form with dual inputs and EQ channels. The pedal’s channels have separate inputs and are toggled with a footswitch, allowing for switching between two basses. Plugging into only input A lets users switch between each of the channels setups on a single instrument.

Each of the channels provides a master volume control and a 3-band EQ that is further accented with a sweepable mid-frequency knob. The pedal’s internal circuitry is powered by a 24-volt supply, which the company says allows for the dynamic range of the bass guitar to come through with maximum impact and clarity.

The Providence Dual Bass Station is set to be released in September with a to-be-announced price point. For more info, check out the Providence website.

  1. No DI output is a little disappointing…

  2. Judging by the price of their drive pedals, this is going to be proper silly money.

    • the older I get the more I want pedal makers to define their sounds better by having fewer knobs – none of this “versatile” nonsense ;)

  3. Anyone interested in this might want to check into the EBS Micro Bass II. It’s got most everything you’d wish this one had.

  4. Are there any alternatives other than the providence?
