Caveman Audio Launches the BP1 Compact Bass Preamp Pedal

Caveman Audio BP1 Compact Bass Preamp Pedal

Caveman Audio’s BP1 bass preamp has been shrunk down to create the new BP1 Compact. The new pedal offers the same tone as its 1073-inspired predecessor while saving space by paring down on some features.

“In order to arrive at such a small footprint compared to the original BP1 Bass Preamp, we removed the optional wireless input and went for an external power supply, but the core connectivity such as an Amp Out, FX loop, and Tuner Out remains,” says founder and head engineer Steen Skrydstup. “Further, the internal circuit – including the input buffer – delivers a tonal bliss that is very close to the sound of the original BP1 that so many bass players have already become addicted to.”

The BP1 Compact features a transformer-balanced gold-plated Neutrik XLR direct output. Its simple control set includes Gain and Level knobs. Other connectivity includes an effects loop, a tuner output, and a 12VDC power input.
