O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp

for bassO2 Oxygen Bass Preamp

The O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp is a must have on a bass player pedal board.

With its efficient and sensitive five control knobs it allows you to deliver YOUR tone – whether on stage or in the studio.

The internal “BASS BOOST” switch allows you to squeeze more bass from the O2 while the “MID SHIFT” switch allows instant selection of one of two distinct tones: deep warm and smooth, or hard, fast and responsive. Both modes are delivered dynamically and with great definition.

Every note will be sculpted with the O2 Bass Preamplifier.

for bassO2 Oxygen Bass Preamp – Pro Series

The O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp breathes life into your bass, emphasising both the characteristics of your instrument and your technique. With its efficient and sensitive controls it allows you to deliver YOUR tone – whether on stage or in the studio.

The O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp is effective with digital, solid state or valve amplification and with both electric bass and electro-acoustic double bass instruments. Plugged into a P.A. system, the preamp offers an alternative to the usual bass amplification while the balanced D.I. output allows optimum interfacing on stage or in the studio.

The foot-switch “MODE” allows instant selection of one of two distinct tones: deep warm and smooth, or hard, fast and responsive. Both modes are delivered dynamically and with great definition.

The O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp is a creative tool that presents multiple tones with consistent musicality to the bass player at work.

My O2 PRO oxygen preamp allows me the instant control I need. Whatever gig I'm playing, I know I'm sounding great!

The oxygen 02 bass preamp gives me the ability to quickly dial in my sound for a studio or live situation. Lots of low end that sounds natural, and the mode switch is great for a quick midrange boost when i want to cut through the mix.

Ho sempre avuto bisogno di questo preamp, sia dal vivo che in studio. Versatilissimo sia sul basso elettrico che sul contrabbasso, sia finendo in un amplificatore che in un PA (e in entrambi). Grandissimo suono e parametri chiari ed efficacissimi. Ho usato in passato altri preamp a pedale come il Sans Amp o il bass metaphors di Ehx ma l’O2 ha una marcia in più.

Analog is Better!

  • True bypass.


 


Z-PRO Buffer

Z-PRO Buffer

Z-PRO-Buffer Impedance adapter, buffer, for professional use. The Z-PRO, connected between instrument and amplifier or effects chain is able to keep unaltered the tone colour of the instrument thanks to a perfect impedance matching. Particularly useful when the connection between instrument and amplifier/mixer is considerably long (over 4 m) or the effects chain is composed of true bypass pedals.
The Z-PRO Buffer does not need to be activated, as it does not introduce gain but only adjusts the impedance. Therefore it is recommended to keep it permanently switched on.Thanks to its small size (38 X 92 mm) it can be included into any pedalboard.

Sandy Beales is widely known from his work with the hugely successful boy band One Direction.

The Z-pro is such a nice compact size, it fitted straight onto my pedal board and hardly takes up any space. Great little pedal for clearing up the signal chain and eliminating any unwanted noise.

 

Analog is Better!

  • Burr Brown buffer used in Hi-End audio devices.
  • Small size.
  • Supply voltage up to 18 VDC.

 

 


Smoking Bass Overdrive

for bassSmoking Bass Overdrive

Very sensitive to the touch, the Smoking Bass maintains the natural tone of the instrument either used to deliver a lightly saturated harmonic sound of delightful valve taste or for a more extreme distortion. The Smoking Bass will always be dynamic, musical, transparent and a definition on low frequencies which are out of the ordinary.
It’s the pedal to turn on and never switch off…

Overdrive che non distrugge il suono dello strumento ma che da quello parte per dare sonorità che vanno dall’acido all’estremo. I controlli sono eccellenti e le basse frequenze rimangono belle e piene.

Steam Bass Analog Chorus

for bassSteam Bass Analog Chorus

The Nemphasis household would have not been complete without the most classic and beautiful modulation pedal for electric bass.
Steam Bass : the analog chorus built without compromise so as to be able to satisfy even the most demanding of bass players!
The sound is extremely dynamic, focused and controlled not to miss even the smallest detail of execution, but at the same time fascinating and “dreamlike” thanks to the analog circuitry and the use of a Bucket Brigade device.
Find your sound is easy with the the efficients controls on the Steam Bass.
In addition to the classic Speed and Depth controls, the Steam Bass has an FX Level knob allowing for a fine adjustment of the amount of the effected. This permits you to range from a hint of chorus, to a loaded and vibrant sound, well appreciated by experimental and ambient music lovers. Yet we were not entirely satisfied as we wanted your bass to retain precision at extremely low frequencies. This was achieved by means of the “HPF” – High-Pass Filter – switch through which you can select the frequency point of the high-pass filter with a slope of 6db/oct connected on the effected line path: L for less bass frequency attenuation, H for more bass frequency attenuation.

Steam Bass? Demanded by your pedalboard.

Il pedale che uso maggiormente, quello che in ogni occasione e per ogni tipologia di suono ti fa dire “grazie nemphasis” Stupendo versatile e dalla personalità forte. poi il punto di forza è i’ High Pass Filter… geniale!
