Boost Your Bass

The RMI Basswitch Clean Boost combines the acclaimed preamp from the Basswitch IQ DI with a 3-band EQ voiced to preserve the characteristic sound of your bass. You can use it as a booster, as a second preamp channel with the Basswitch IQ DI, or as a preamp in front of your bass amp. Rocking Lehle True Sound Technology, a discrete JFET input stage and gold-plated relays, the Basswitch Clean Boost delivers fat, punchy bass tone with a studio-grade dynamic range of over 100dB and vanishingly low noise. Gain adjustment of +/- 15dB, gives you the flexibility for any live or studio situation. If you're in the market for a bass preamp, Sweetwater recommends the RMI Basswitch Clean Boost.

What a high-end preamp/equalizer can do for your sound

It may be compact, but the RMI Basswitch Clean Boost pedal houses an ultra high-quality preamp with a discrete JFET input stage and a studio-grade dynamic range of 100dB. 15dB of gain lets you use the Basswitch Clean Boost as a stand-alone booster, as a second channel for the Basswitch IQ DI, or as a stand-alone preamp in front of your bass amp. The Basswitch Clean Boost's powerful 3-band EQ gives you the ability to sculpt your signature bass tone, much like a console channel equalizer does. The EQ's treble control combines passive high-frequency reduction with active HF boost.

Lehle True Sound Technology inside

RMI's Basswitch Clean Boost incorporates Lehle True Sound Technology, a series of electrical design measurements that ensures an optimized signal path. The provided voltage is rectified, filtered, stabilized and brought up to 18V, which allows sufficient headroom even when dealing with strong pickup power peaks. Lehle buffers comfortably handle signals reaching into the megahertz range. To prevent high-frequency interference, the frequency bandwidth is limited to the audible frequency range at the output. Lehle True Sound Technology is a key element in the amazing sonic performance of RMI pedals.
