Out, The Bass FX Console is an active bassists’ new pedal hub system to control myriads of sounds.

  • Four programmable effect loops (3 series + 1 separate) plus effect power in a compact unit measuring only 290 mm wide x 70 mm deep.
  • Up to four combinations of the four loops can be programmed and recalled instantly in the Program mode.
