MFR# BR-BP

Product Description

The Origin Effects BassRIG ’64 Black Panel is, quite simply, a complete vintage bass amp in a pedal. Based on Fender’s Showman and Bassman amplifiers, Origin have used all-analog circuitry to recreate a complete valve amp-style signal path, along with an all-analog cabinet simulator, giving you the drive, grit and articulation of these classic amps in one small box.

Back in the days before modern bass amps, achieving high stage volumes with bass guitar was a challenge that required powerful, clean amps. Nobody fills this niche quite like Fender. Their high-powered amps – designed with guitar and bass in mind – graced countless stages and studios throughout the 1960s. The Showman, with its 2×15 cabinets, and the later Bassman models boast an illustrious list of users between them, including Sir Paul McCartney, Crazy Horse’s Billy Talbot, and Berry Oakley of The Allman Brothers - in fact, a whole host of Fenders can be heard amplifying the bass on some of the greatest Soul and Rock ‘n’ Roll records of the ‘60s!

With XLR and ¼” outputs, the BassRIG ’64 Black Panel will fit seamlessly into any signal chain, no matter how simple or complex, and the powerful Amp Out EQ tailors your sound to work with any ampz meaning you never have to compromise your clean tone.

REAL AMP OVERDRIVE

The BassRIG ’64 Black Panel uses the same ground-breaking circuitry found in Origin's other Analog Amp Recreation pedals, replicating the entire signal path of the Showman and delivers all the tone shaping, drive and character of this historic amp with stunning realism.

The FAT switch takes things into Bassman territory, replacing the Showman’s tight low end with a deeper, squishier bass response. For an even dirtier breakup, switching from BLK to TWD harks back to the Tweed era, with thick midrange and raucous overdrive.

Origin have also added a BLEND knob, which mixes in some of your clean signal in parallel with the pedal’s emulated amp circuit. This control can add some subtle, low-end clarity or be used to create massive bi-amp-style overdrive tones.

Analog CABINET SIMULATOR

The balanced DI output on the BassRIG ’64 Black Panel is equipped with a painstakingly engineered, all-analog simulation of Fender’s 2×15 bass speaker cabinet – an essential part of this amp’s signature sound. Craft the perfect recorded bass tone or run direct into the PA at gigs!

The switch on the front panel lets you select whether the cabinet simulator is always active or only on when the pedal is engaged, meaning you can use the BassRIG to add cabinet simulation to other pedals or keep an unaffected DI signal when the pedal is in bypass.

POWERFUL AMP OUT EQ

In addition to the sine wave oscillator shape that makes bias tremolo so irresistibly smooth, Origin have added a “full wave” setting. This gives the tremolo a more prominent, choppier character, great for keeping the effect obvious with more overdriven tones or with lazy, super-slow settings.

Bass amps come in so many different varieties and Origin wanted the BassRIG ’64 Black Panel to work with all of them. Their proprietary Amp Out EQ filter lets you tailor the output of the pedal so you never have to compromise on tone, keeping your sound consistent from amp to amp, gig to gig.

Positioned after the drive circuit, the LF and HF trimmers adjust the low and high frequencies to give you the sound of a roaring vintage stack from even the tiniest combo, or tame unwanted boominess and brightness when using unfamiliar backline cabs. The HORN CUT switch instantly combats fizziness when using overdriven sounds with a tweeter-equipped cab, letting you keep your hi-fi clean tone and kick in proper, vintage overdrive.

BUILT FOR THE ROAD

Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminum controls, Neutrik jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the BassRIG ’64 Black Panel is equally at home on the road and in the studio.

POWER SUPPLY

9-18V DC 2.1 mm center-negative required.

Please note: the BassRIG is powered by a mains adaptor only (not included). Origin Effects have dispensed with the usual 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow us to adopt a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone.

Origin Effects pedals are designed to deliver impeccable performance using a range of power supplies. It is recommended that you only use a regulated power supply specifically designed for guitar pedal applications as power supplies which do not have sufficient internal filtering can result in unwanted noise.

The following power supplies are recommended for use with Origin Effects pedals:

  • Voodoo Labs Pedal Power series
  • Cioks supplies
  • Truetone 1 Spot Pro series
  • Strymon Zuma
  • Dunlop ECB-004

Operating this pedal with an 18V power supply will give the most headroom, allowing for higher levels of compression before clipping occurs.

FEATURES:

  • Complete valve amp-style signal path with dedicated Class A preamp and push-pull output stage, based on the Fender Showman and Bassman
  • Balanced DI output with analog cabinet simulator based on an early ‘60s Fender 2×15 bass cabinet
  • Reactive overdrive design simulates interaction between amp and speaker for realistic feel and authentic sound
  • Full range of Fender bass tones from clean to overdriven
  • Powerful tone-shaping Amp Out EQ
  • Blend control lets you mix your drive sound in parallel with your clean signal
  • Tour-grade, all-metal construction
  • High-impedance, buffered bypass with silent switching
  • Designed and built in England
