Radial Bassbone OD
Reviewer David Abdo likened the Bassbone to a sonic Voltron (a multifaceted giant robot, if you didn’t know). Given how monstrous and malleable this unit is, we’re inclined to agree. The 2-channel setup makes switching between different basses a breeze, and the EQ is powerful and effective.
In the years we’ve compiled our annual list of Premier Gear Award winners, we’ve probably never seen a list more eclectic than 2015’s. From high-gain monster amps and atmospheric reverbs to mini overdrives and wahs, 2015’s award winners covered all the bases.
As always, it was a joy to see how both big-time musical instrument industry players and little shops a step removed from the garage managed to haul in Premier Guitar’s prize for gear excellence. And if anyone’s counting, we’re pretty sure we also set a record for Premier Gear Award winners. So we hope you’re comfy—this list of primo gear may take some time to cover.
