The BASSRIG Super Vintage is, quite simply, a complete vintage bass amp in a pedal. Based on the iconic Ampeg® SVT®, we have used all-analogue circuitry to recreate a complete valve amp-style signal path, along with an all-analogue 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 our powerful Amp Out EQ tailors your sound to work with any amp, meaning you never have to compromise on tone.
The BASSRIG Super Vintage uses the same ground-breaking circuitry found in our other Analogue 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 favourite bass amp, we’ve 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.
The balanced DI output on the BASSRIG Super Vintage is equipped with an all-analogue simulation of Ampeg®’s famous 8×10 speaker cabinet – essential to the SVT® sound. You can 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.
Our proprietary Amp Out EQ lets you tailor the BASSRIG’s ¼” Amp Out, so you never have to compromise your amp settings to flatter the pedal or vice versa. With LF and HF trimmers, as well as a HORN CUT switch, this post-drive filter can fatten up small combos, tame boominess in big cabs prevent harshness with tweeter-equipped rigs. This allows you to match your on-stage sound to your DI signal, balance your clean and overdriven tones or compensate for ever-changing backline amps.
Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminium controls, Neutrik® jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the BASSRIG Super Vintage is equally at home on the road and in the studio.
