Sadowsky has brought its bass preamp into stompbox form with the new SPB-1 and SPB-2, which essentially load the same electronics built into the company’s instruments into an effects pedal enclosure.

The SPB-1 sports Volume, Bass and Treble controls, a switchable mute, a ground lift switch, an XLR direct out, a tuner out, status LEDs and more. It can be used in front of an amp to beef up tone or as a DI box.
