GR Bass Releases the Dual800 & Dual1400 Amplifiers

Sonata Marketing, Ltd. is excited to present the GR Bass DUAL800 & DUAL1400 lightweight bass guitar amplifiers.

Austin, TX (February 27, 2019) -- Sonata Marketing, Ltd. is excited to present the GR Bass Dual800 & Dual1400 lightweight bass guitar amplifiers, now available at $999 and $1,249.

The GR Bass Dual800 & Dual1400 are amp heads created for the modern and demanding bass player with a flexibility never seen before on a bass amplifier.

The new Dual series feature two separate channels, one of which is completed by a professional overdrive for a range of slight saturation to massive distortion. Each channel is provided with a 4 band EQ with 6 selectable frequencies on the mid controls, plus deep and bright filters. The GR Bass DUAL offers the possibility to connect two instruments (two basses or one bass and keyboard, etc.) but also the option of using one instrument with the possibility of switching between two equalization settings or combining them.

The system is completed by two D.I.s on the back to send two separate signals even when using only one instrument so you can mix a clean and a distorted sound in your cabinet, but send the two signals separately to the sound engineer. When using two instruments, each instrument (and channel) can be sent to the house independently or mixed. The GR Bass Dual is completed by an optional dedicated pedal board (with Cat-5 connection) that allows you to comfortably manage all the functions as an alternative to the controls on the head.

Additional features include not only the robust Overdrive circuit (Low Filter, Drive, Blend, Drive Mod), but Dual SpeakOn combi-jacks, Onboard Tuner/VU-Meter, Line Output Level controls, Headphone Output w/ Level control, Effects Send/Return, 9-volt supply for pedals and a USB charger port. While both Dual amps are 12.25” x 10.25” x 3.5”, the Dual800 is 6.5 Lbs. and the Dual1400 clocks in at 7.5 Lbs.

Here’s a different way to unleash the beast within your tracks.

Welcome to another Dojo. Last month I explained in detail how to set up and use sidechain compression techniques to get that classic pop/EDM pumping sound on your rhythm guitar parts and other instruments in your mix. This time, we’ll use the same setup techniques but, instead of sidechaining a compressor, I’m going to show you the benefits of using a gate.
