Boss have always been a big name in the pedal world but oddly enough this is their first bass pedal in quite some time. The BB1x marks their return to the bass world with an overdrive pedal / DI that will change what you thought a small pedal like this could do.
Not Just A Drive
Boss didn't want to make a bass drive pedal that coloured the sound of your bass and amplifier. Acting more line a preamp and DI box the BB-1x is focused on refining your sound rather than making you sound like everything else. The BB-1x is probably the most transparent 'preamp' like pedal on the market today so if you want to keep your tone but with a little bit more grit this is the pedal for you.
This transparency comes from their new MDP technology that they launched last year that allows for a much great dynamic range with a wide range of tones without having to make a massively complex pedal. This pedal will take your sound for a slight clean boost up to a crushing high gain distortion that could match the impressive gain levels of Dick Lovgren (Meshuggah) with some tweaking.
Renowned Boss build quality
Boss pedals have a reputation for being built like tanks. You can be sure that however much you drop it, kick it, throw it and jump on it, it'll still come back for more. These pedals constantly survive the rigours of rock 'n' roll touring, and that's why they're seen at the feet of top touring pros everywhere.
Reliability really can be affordable to all. Boss are so sure their compact pedals last the test of time, they cover them with a full five year warranty.
