Live Professional Studio Sound Secret in a Live Performance or Home PC Setting

Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamps are a live professional studio sound secret for bass guitarists! First of all, we don’t guarantee that our preamp is a cure-all for the tone of the low notes. Furthermore, with some searching by trial and error a BIG improvement is possible. (“What live professional studio sound secret,” you ask? Who ever thought a professional studio sound in a live performance or home PC setting would be so easy? Just use a Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamp in your effects chain!)

What is the secret, most noteworthy, part contained in this device, you might ask? We use either AudioNoteUK paper in oil capacitors or Russian Military Surplus paper in oil capacitors. It seems like both work almost as well as the other. Especially relevant is the fact that there are less of the low-cost Russian Military Surplus Capacitors handy.  As a result of this people often ask, “Why don’t we use U.S. made paper in oil capacitors?”  This is due to the fact that simply of what is available cost too much. In conclusion, the discovery of this preamp technology was made with paper in oil capacitors salvaged from a 1950s church organ, which was made in the U.S.  Consequently, we prefer to use AudioNoteUK capacitors if we have to use expensive capacitors.  Another reason being that they are made for royalty, after all.

Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamp controls

You may find that you are able to create better Highs with one setting on your amp and better Lows with another setting. This is the reason for the bi-amp capabilities of the Nitewalker Bass Guitar Preamp. You will be able to improve your tone even more using two channels on one amp or, even better, with two different amplifiers.

Great for acoustic instruments too!

Acoustic instruments which use piezo pickups and are in the bass register can be made to create richer tone with a Newbasstone Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamp in the bass tone circuit, too. Try plugging the output into the return on the send/return to bypass the inboard preamp on your Bass amp! No bass pedal board should be without one! A Newbasstone Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamp in combination with a digital bass amp modeling effects processor is one of the best starting points in creating the perfect tone for any situation when playing an amplified bass register musical instrument. If you have a tube emulator remove the Nitewalker from the circuit and find some more patches that you enjoy for more variety! We dare you!

An old hotrodders trick from the 1950s

Tube overdrive is an old hotrodders trick from the 1950s, and you will sometimes find a “fat” switch on old amplifiers, which is the same thing. More voltage is fed to the plates of the tube when the tube is being overdriven. “What live professional studio sound secret,” you ask? This magnifies the tone for an even richer quality.

Quality construction for safety and easy maintenance

First of all, a powder coat finish improves the safety features of each Nitewalker Bass Guitar Tube Preamp. This finish is an electrically insulating coating. Most of all, the current draw is less that 250ma, even when in the overdrive mode. Consequently, that means there will be little effect on your electric bill with the use of one of these preamps. Low maintenance construction ensures months of trouble-free use. In addition, all internal circuitry contains solder connections throughout, thereby eliminating the usual need for cleaning plug-in connectors. The only necessary maintenance will be to clean the pots and switches once in a while and make sure the single 12AX7 tube is in good condition. Furthermore, in accordance with the most recent safety standards Newbasstone, Inc. manufactures these newly revised preamps for the U.S. market.
