    BBE BMAX Class A/B Bass Preamp Product Description

    The BMAX is a high quality bass preamp/processor for the recording studio and on the stage. At the heart of the BMAX is a class A/B front-end, the input of which emulates the loading effect that the input of classic-design tube preamp would present to the bass pickups, and one of the key aspects in the warmth and punch of tube preamps. The BMAX also provides a pure and clean electronically-balanced DI output. From its 1/4 in. thick extruded front panel to thoughfully designed ergonomics to the red-abalone-topped knobs, the fit and finish of the BMAX exudes quality craftsmanship.


    The BMAX is perfect anywhere an extremely high-quality, pristine preamplifier is required for the bass guitar

    In the recording studio where a bass amplifier is impractical due to space or loudness considerations

    In performance applications, where players will find the BMAX ergonomics intuitive and easy to use

    The BMAX EQ and Dynamic controls, combined with the patented Sonic Maximizer processor, afford a wide palette of tonal choices
