Revitalize Your Bass Tone!

The RMI Basswitch Sonic Spark bass pedal combines the acclaimed preamp from the Basswitch IQ DI with a harmonic overtone generator integrated into a complex EQ section. Two controls let you shape your bass tone, while a third adjusts the harmonic overtone content, for stunningly deep, rich, and detailed bass tone that preserves the sonic character of your axe. Rocking Lehle True Sound Technology, a discrete JFET input stage and gold-plated relays, the Basswitch Sonic Spark delivers a studio-grade dynamic range of over 100dB, with vanishingly low noise, while gain adjustment of +/- 15dB, gives you the flexibility for any live or studio situation. If you're ready to revitalize your bass tone, Sweetwater recommends the RMI Basswitch Sonic Spark.

RMI Basswitch Sonic Spark Bass Pedal at a Glance:

  • Lehle True Sound Technology inside
You've never heard your bass like this

The RMI Basswitch Sonic Spark 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 Sonic Spark 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. But the integrated EQ/Enhance section is where it gets really interesting. Two controls - Bright/Deep and Intensity - let you shape your tone, while a third - Enhance - adds harmonic overtone content to your signal. The result, much like a classic "exciter" circuit, is stunningly deep, rich, and detailed tone that nevertheless preserves the essential sonic character of your bass. The bassists here at Sweetwater are mightily impressed with the RMI Basswitch Sonic Spark. We think you will be, too!

Lehle True Sound Technology inside

RMI's Basswitch Sonic Spark 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.
