Genzler Amplification Introduces the Crash Box 4

Genzler Amplification Crash Box 4 Bass Pedal

Genzler Amplification’s lineup of bass pedals has grown again with the Crash Box 4, which they call a classic bass distortion. The all-analog is described as picking up where their last release, the 4 On The Floor, left off.

“While the 4-OTF compares to the smooth, effortless shifting of a syncro-mesh, manual transmission —- the CRASH BOX 4 is reminiscent of the rough shifting, gear grinding, non-syncro straight-cut, gear boxes in vintage off-road vehicles and heavy trucks – often called “heavy metal” vehicles.”

The Crash Box 4 has four distortion types labeled as first through fourth gears. A switch sets the drive sensitivity between low and high while drive and drive volume knobs to dial it in. A Clean volume knob blends in your clean signal. Finally, the pedal has high and low pass filters for tailoring your tone.
