Ampeg Unveils the SCR-DI

A potent combination of preamp, EQ pedal, and overdrive built for the stage.

Anaheim, CA (January 23, 2015) -- Ampeg today announces the release of the all-new SCR-DI Bass DI with Scramblerâ„¢ Overdrive. The first pedal Ampeg has released in years, the SCR-DI combines a classic Ampeg preamp, EQ pedal and overdrive stomp box in a rugged design built to deliver Ampeg tone in any situation.

"The SCR-DI is the most bass-friendly DI ever created," remarks Ampeg Product Manager Zane Williams. "It delivers a huge range of classic Ampeg tones, it's an EQ pedal, it's got fantastic overdrive...it's got everything a performing bass player needs."

The Ampeg SCR-DI Bass DI with Scrambler Overdrive is a true Ampeg preamp, with legacy preamp and tone stack circuits, providing a wide choice of authentic Ampeg tones. The EQ section features a 3-band EQ with Ampeg's famed Ultra-Hi and Ultra-Lo circuits for flexible tone shaping. The EQ section is footswitchable, perfect for switching between distinct tones during a live performance. Also featured is the completely new Bass Scrambler overdrive circuit, specifically tailored to deliver true SVT grit, grind and sag. The overdrive section is also footswitchable, so players can add overdrive as needed.

The ideal DI box for any Ampeg lover, SCR-DI delivers connection options perfect for driving any bass rig and feeding a bassist's effected signal right to front-of-house. Plus, its portable, compact design fits easily onto a pedal board, and can tuck away into a gig bag for transport. The SCR-DI is also a great practice tool, with a dedicated headphone out and aux in for playing along with backing tracks.

"It's great to be able to practice with the same gear you use when performing. The SCR-DI is perfect for silent practice on the road or at home," remarks Williams. "You know you will always have the tone you want, no matter where you are playing."

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
