TC Electronic - SPECTRADRIVE - Bass Preamp & Drive Pedal

High-Quality Bass Preamp and Drive Pedal with Built-In TubeDrive and SpectraComp TonePrints

SPECTRADRIVE
SPECTRADRIVE Bass Preamp and Line Driver is a powerful tool for serious bass players in search of an exceptional sounding and ultra-flexible preamp. Jam-packed with useful features, SPECTRADRIVE includes built-in TonePrint-customizable SpectraComp compression and distortion, as well as a custom built studio-grade DI Output. And SPECTRADRIVE easily pulls double-duty as the perfect practice companion thanks to its high-quality headphone amplifier and Aux input.

Ready, Set, TubeDrive...
The TubeDrive TonePrint utility gives your bass the dynamic and warm sound and feel of a full-blown tube amp. From just a single knob, TubeDrive serves up everything from a slightly overdriven tone with organic, rich harmonics all the way out to fuzzed out, edgy hard rock distortion and beyond. Plus, TubeDrive features its own dedicated footswitch – so you always kick it in at the ideal moment!

SpectraComp
TC Electronic's acclaimed TonePrint setup not only lets you fine-tune your overdrive, it provides access to the ultimate treasure trove of artist compression TonePrints in addition to the stellar selection but into the SPECTRADRIVE. Using the same advanced multiband algorithm from TC's legendary System 6000 studio compressors, SpectraComp’s deceptively simple single knob operation gives you unequaled control over dynamics and cuts through the mix like a flaming katana through warm butter. Just turn up the SpectraComp knob to dial in the perfect amount of compression!

Smart EQ
TC Electronic imported the intelligent EQ section from their much-loved BH800 bass head and re-engineered it to be an even more robust tone-shaping tool. The EQ stack is meticulously tuned for bass, meaning that instead of controlling one fixed set of frequencies when you turn a knob, each of the 4 knobs alters only a specific frequency range – whether you boost or cut them, you get total control over your tone.

Not Your Average Stompbox
SPECTRADRIVE is more than just a bass preamp and distortion pedal, it’s also a professional DI box with a studio-grade balanced output – which connects nicely to your favorite mixing console or recording gear. The high-grade components feature 3 toggle switches for Pre/Post EQ, Ground/Lift and Instrument/Line level, while the parallel outputs make it a breeze to send your dry bass tone to your amp or a separate tuner. The balanced DI feeds all the tone-saturated goodness of your SPECTRADRIVE directly to the house system.

Buff Up That Bass!
Long cable runs can really take its toll on your tone, so we gave SPECTRADRIVE the same circuit used in our best-selling BONAFIDE BUFFER. No matter what you are playing through, SPECTRADRIVE protects your tone with absolutely no loss of high-end frequencies or overall signal strength.
