The Origin Effects BassRIG ’64 Black Panel harks back to the mid-Sixties, when Fender ruled the stage with their high-powered bass heads. This pedal pays tribute to the Showman and Bassman amps which, along with their 2x15 cabs, were relied on by everyone from Soul session players to Rock ‘n’ Roll royalty. We firmly believe that these early bass tones are some of the best ever, and the BassRIG ’64 Black Panel delivers all the warmth and grit that define this boundary-pushing era.
The recreated amp circuit of the BassRig '64 Black Panel has all the controls you need to craft the perfect bass amp tone, while the Blend knob adds clean signal to preserve clarity and low-end. The XLR-equipped DI output’s analogue cabinet simulator provides a huge and authentic tone direct to your mixing console and the 1⁄4” output features our proprietary Amp Out EQ. This ingenious, post-drive filter ensures compatibility with any amp and cab, meaning you never have to compromise your clean tone or struggle with the house backline.
All Origin Effects guitar and bass pedals are hand built in Buckinghamshire, UK from the highest quality components. No. Tom Guitars are pleased to offer the full range of Origin Effects pedals as the exclusive central London dealer.
