Fender Bass Amplification announced the new TBP-1 Tube Bass Pre-Amp.
The new TBP-1 is a professional single rack-space tube preamp designed specifically
for bassists who rely on modern amplifier features, but who also love the
classic warm tones of a tube-driven amp.

Says Jay Piccirillo, Marketing Manager for Fender Bass Amplification, “Many
preamp designs of today are based on the passive tone circuit found in a lot
of classic Fender amps, which offers a warm and clean bass tone. The major
drawback with these preamps is a lack of fine tuning capability from the EQ
section.”

“The new TBP-1 Tube Bass Pre-Amp is designed to speak to the bass purist who
loves the warm tube tone from a simple passive tone stack, but who also wants
a flexible, modern feature set that helps to define their sound,” adds Piccirillo. “The
new TBP-1 has features that allow the user to bring in subtle overdrive for
'grind', or the Vari-Q to cut harsh frequencies for thumb style playing.”

Front panel features on the TBP-1 include a Tube Overdrive section with Gain,
Volume and Blend controls, the new Vari-Q smart semi-parametric EQ, and a Room

given stage or studio situation.

Rear panel features include a Balanced XLR Line Output with Ground Lift and
Pre/Post switches and level control, a Jensen Line Out Transformer for maintaining
a clean balanced line out signal, Tuner Send, Effects Loop with trim control
and level switch, Bi-amp low and high sends with active crossover, Full-Range
Main Output, and Footswitch input.

US MSRP is $857.13. A 4-button footswitch is included.
