Roger Sadowsky is one of the most respected luthiers in the world. Some of his clients include bassists like Marcus Miller, Will Lee or Jason Newsted. His basses are handcrafted at his Manhattan factory with exquisite attention to detail and are known by their incredible tone. This tone, in addition to the construction and selection of woods, is due to the use of their own preamplifiers. For those who long for that sound they can now get it in pedal format with the SPB-1 and SPB-2 models, which basically include the same electronics that can be found in Sadowsky basses.
The SPB-1 has volume, bass and treble controls, as well as a mute switch. Additionally, it incorporates a ground wire switch, direct XLR output, tuner, and status LED light. This preamplifier can work as a DI box, sending it directly to line, or it can also be used in front of the amplifier to give the bass sound more body. Without a doubt, tools for those bassists who want to filter their sound with a product of the highest quality.
