Origin Effects DCX Bass Tone Shaper & Drive
Introducing the DCX BOOST and DCX BASS, a pair of tone shaper & drive pedals inspired by the iconic UA 610 recording preamp. With the two pedals catering individually to guitar and bass players, these new offerings add vintage, analogue colour to a signal, as well as precise control of level and EQ. From subtle boosts and tone-tweaking to fuzz-like “cranked console” saturation, these pedals enhance anything that passes through the circuit, just like you’d expect from a great retro recording preamp.
Great care has been taken to ensure a fully flat frequency response when desired, with EQ controls specially designed for guitar and bass, allowing generous boosting of bass and treble without sacrificing low-end clarity or overemphasising upper harmonics. EQ and OD modes select between cleaner and dirtier sounds, while the Voice switch features our Adaptive Circuitry, previously seen on the Halcyon Green Overdrive and M-EQ Driver. This switch gives extra control over the high-end and adapts the voicing of the pedal in response to playing dynamics and volume knob changes.
With all-analogue, studio-derived circuitry and a sophisticated balance of precision and character, these pedals can craft the perfect clean boost, mimic classic “direct to console” tones or serve up saturated vintage overdrive.
