Designed by Bassist for Bass Lovers
We collaborated with American bass player Melvin Lee Davis to create MLD Bass Preamp & DI.
"Melvin Lee Davis is an American bass player, vocalist, keyboard player, producer, TV composer and
engineer based in Orange County, California. He is the music director for Grammy-award winning artist
Chaka Khan and has recorded with The Pointer Sisters, Lee Ritenour, Bryan Ferry, Patti Austin and
Gladys Knight & the Pips."
MLD Bass Preamp + DI has tons of functions based on Melvin Lee Davis' musical experience. And offers the best sound-shaping controls such as: 3-band EQ with middle-frequency selection, drive with blend control, speaker cabinet simulation (Impulse Response loader) and built-in noise reduction with Decay and Threshold controls.
MLD signature Bass Preamp + DI features fully sweepable mid-range frequencies in addition to Bass and Treble controls. Melvin L. Davis is proficient at 4, 5, 6 and 7 string basses, so MLD Bass Preamp has a wide range of frequency control.
Adjusts the overall output volume of the pedal. Ideal for fine-tuning the output on clean tone, it also controls the DI output volume.
Adjusts to blend between the clean signal and overdrive signal. The clean signal remains as unity gain, allowing for fine control of the blend ration.
Adjusts the Gain level and sets the saturation level in the overdriven signal.
