Origin Effects BassRIG Super Vintage Overdrive/Preamp Pedal
The Origin Effects BassRIG Super Vintage is, quite simply, a complete vintage bass amp in a pedal. Based on the iconic Ampeg SVT, Origin have used all-analog circuitry to recreate a complete valve amp-style signal path, along with an all-analog cabinet simulator, giving you all the warmth, feel and drive of this classic bass rig in one small box.
When the SVT arrived on the scene in 1969, it rewrote the rulebook for purpose-built bass amplification. Thanks to its enormous power, deep bass, growling overdrive and purposeful control set, this tower of tone has remained the amp of choice for the most discerning bassists on the world’s biggest stages.
With XLR and ¼” outputs, the BassRIG Super Vintage 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 amp, meaning you never have to compromise on tone.
REAL AMP OVERDRIVE
The BassRIG Super Vintage uses the same ground-breaking circuitry found in other Analog Amp Recreation pedals, replicating the entire signal path of the SVT and delivering all the tone shaping, drive and character of this historic amp with stunning realism.
In addition to all the familiar controls from the world’s favorite bass amp, Origin have 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 Super Vintage is equipped with a painstakingly engineered, all-analog simulation of Ampeg’s famous 8×10 speaker cabinet – an essential part of this amp’s revered sound. Craft the perfect studio 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
Bass amps come in so many different varieties and Origin wanted the BassRIG Super Vintage 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 Super Vintage is equally at home on the road and in the studio.
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.
