The BassRIG ’64 Black Panel is an Analogue Amp Recreation, paying tribute to the Fender® Showman® and Bassman® amps of the mid- Sixties, along with their 2x15 cabs. Before the days of the modern bass amp, these high- powered heads were relied on by everyonefrom Soul session players to Rock ‘n’ Rollroyalty. We firmly believe that these early bass tones are some of the best ever, and theBassRIG ’64 Black Panel delivers all the warmthand grit that define this boundary-pushing era.

This pedal features an entire valve amp circuit recreated in miniature, with all the controls you need to craft the perfect bass amp tone, while the BLEND knob adds clean signal to preserve clarity and low-end. The XLR-equipped DI output’s analogue cabinetsimulator provides a huge and authentic tonedirect to your mixing console and the 1⁄4” outputfeatures our proprietary Amp Out EQ. This post-drive filter ensures compatibility with any amp and cab, meaning you never have to compromise your clean tone or struggle with the house backline.


INSTR - Plug in your bass or other instrument .
AMP - Connect to amp or power amp.

DI OUT - Connect to your mixer or recording interface.

9VDC - Insert 9VDC 2.1mm centre-negative power supply (minimum 150mA).

2. MATCH THE CONTROLS - Match the controls to the image here as a starting point for setting up your tone.


HORN CUT - For cabs equipped with a tweeter, set the HORN CUT switch to 2K or 4K to give a smooth overdrive tone and protect your tweeter. For cabs without tweeters, leave this switch in the off (centre) position. Use the LF and HF trimmers to fine tune the pedal’s voicing to suit your amp and cab.

LF - This control can reduce boominess in large cabs or fatten up smaller cabs.

HF - This control can add some upper-mid presence or tame the top end when using a hi-fi, modern amplifier.

4. SHAPE YOUR VOICE - The pre-drive 3-band tone stack affects the frequency response and character of the overdrive.

TREBLE - Turn clockwise for a brighter tone and more aggressive overdrive. Turn counterclockwise for a smoother sound.

MIDDLE - Turn clockwise for a warmer tone and rich overdrive. Turn counterclockwise for a scooped tone and extra clarity.

BASS - Turn clockwise for a deep low end. Turn counterclockwise for a thinner, more percussive sound. Tip: For very overdriven sounds, lower BASS settings will improve tightness and definition.

BRIGHT/FAT - BRIGHT adds extra high frequencies in the preamp at lower DRIVE settings. FAT reconfigures the circuit from Showman® to Bassman® spec. This can add warmth and depth to the sound. As the DRIVE increases, FAT mode will begin to sound out-of-control - in a good way!

BLK/TWD - The BLK setting is a Fender® “Black Panel” circuit with a controlled, scooped tone. TWDselects a “Tweed” spec for more gain and mids.

5. DIAL IN YOUR OVERDRIVE GAIN - Turn up and go from clean to cranked, much like turning up a classic non-master-volume amp.

6. BLEND IN YOUR DRIVE BLEND - Turn counterclockwise to add in some of your bass guitar’s cleansignal. This can help preserve clarity when using overdriven sounds.

DI OUT - This balanced XLR output gives you an analogue simulation of an 8x10 bass cabinet, direct to a PA or recording interface.

DI CAB SIM switch - In the FX position, the cabinet simulator is active only when the pedal is engaged. In the FX+BYP position, the cabinet simulator is always active.

DI GROUND switch - Select GND if only using the DI OUT. Select LIFT to eliminate ground loop hum when using both outputs.
