Analog Compressor, Booster, and DI in One

The Pigtronix Bass Station compressor/booster/DI is an analog tone hub for your electric bass rig - and it's only available at Sweetwater! Dial in just the right amount of fatness and sustain with the compressor, then blend in your dry signal to taste to maintain your punch and dynamics. When you need your bass to stand out, the Bass Station's booster switch gives you up to 12dB of gain for an ultra-clean signal boost. With a built-in effects loop, a Grit switch for smooth harmonic overdrive, and both an 1/4" instrument output and an XLR DI output for easy connectivity, the Pigtronix Bass Station is a powerful tool for any bassist.

Pigtronix Bass Station Compressor/Boost/DI Pedal at a Glance:
  • Fatten your tone to epic proportions with this versatile compressor
  • Boost your tone without coloring it one bit
  • External effects and built-in DI are perfect for both stage and studio
Fatten your tone to epic proportions with this versatile compressor

You'll start to make your bass tone come alive with the Bass Station's compressor, based on Pigtronix's acclaimed Philosopher Bass Compressor pedal. The sustain control lets you dial in everything from subtle smoothing to squashed limiting, and everything in between. Tweak it until you find the right balance of punch and sustain, then use the blend control to add in your dry signal to taste for a more dynamic sound. And if you're feeling fuzzy flip on the Grit switch, which Pigtronix says is inspired by Jack Bruce's tone with Cream.

Boost your tone without coloring it one bit

Once you're fattened your tone sufficiently, you've still got up to 12dB of switchable gain boost in the Pigtronix Bass Station to take it over the top. It won't color your tone at all, and gives you the perfect boost for intros or solos. Whether you only add a bit of gain or crank it to the max it'll still be your tone, just louder.

External effects and built-in DI are perfect for both stage and studio

The Pigtronix Bass Station may soon become your go-to pedal, because its built-in effects loop and XLR DI output mean it's ready for any scenario. You may not use bass effect pedals now, but who knows what you'll be trying the next time you're experimenting in your studio. And because it's packed with sweet analog tone, plugging the Bass Station directly into a recording system or live sound system is a fantastic alternative to a bulky bass amplifier and speaker cabinet.

Pigtronix Bass Station Compressor/Boost/DI Pedal Features:
  • Sweetwater exclusive bass pedal for stage and studio
  • Wide-ranging compressor gives you everything from subtle to squashed
  • Blend control lets you balance your dry signal and compressed signal
  • Grit switch adds gritty harmonic overdrive based on Jack Bruce's tone in Cream
  • External FX loop is placed between compressor and boost circuits for maximum sonic performance
  • XLR DI output lets you connect directly to a recorder or sound mixer, 1/4" output for your amp
