B A S S B O NE MASTER BASS CONTROLLER Tonebone Smar t Sh e e t

Today, most bassists have at least two basses on stage. Perhaps one is a low output
vintage bass and the other, a six-string active fretless. Switching these basses during a
performance would require volume and EQ adjustments on the bass amp, as each
instrument is very different from the other. Up until now, the only option was to compromise
amp settings... enter the Bassbone.
Bassbone solves the problem by providing a two-channel preamp designed to be a
master controller for two basses. Channel-1 is straight-ahead with gain control and
selectable voicings that work with the ampliers EQ. For the second bass, channel-2
features a separate gain control and a powerful three-band active EQ that lets you override
your amps EQ settings. When only one bass is connected, the Bassbone works like a two-
channel preamp, allowing one bass to have two totally different tone and gain settings.
For extra kick, the Bassbone has a fully adjustable power booster and effects loop circuit
for soloing or special effects. A built-in direct box provides a balanced XLR output that is post
EQ, level, and effects loop. This puts you in control of your bass sound without relying on
a soundman. In fact, with Bassbones balanced output and powerful EQ, you dont even
have to bring your amp to the gig! The balanced out works great for direct recording too!
