SansAmp Bass Driver Programmable
Always thinking of our fat-stringed brethren, we had to make a 3-channel, programmable, rig-in-a-box for bassists who can't get enough of a great thing. Like the TRI-A.C. for guitar, you get three hot tones right at your toetips. The all-analog circuitry features the same controls as its single channel predecessor: Drive, Bass, Treble, Presence, Blend and Level. Digital only in its programmability, you just tweak the knobs until you find a tone, double-tap on a footswitch, and it's saved in that channel. It's that simple. Three of your faves – to go!
SansAmp Bass Driver DI
Much more than just a direct box, the SansAmp Bass Driver DI is capable of dialing up big vintage tube tones, bright modern slap sounds, gnarly distortions, and all in between. Three different outputs to drive power amps, recording desks, PA mixers, or simply enhance your current rig. Controls include Presence for definition and upper harmonic content; Blend to combine the proportion of direct signal and SansAmp circuitry; and active EQ specifically tuned for bass with 12dB of cut or boost.
The controls offer a broad range of traditional bass amp sounds, including such meaty styles as Bassman® and SVT®, as well as raunchy, crunchy overdriven sounds that would typically require a multitude of effects units.
SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe
For bassists who like to switch it up on stage, the SansAmp Bass Driver Deluxe is the ultimate live tool for the bass-hopping, preset-stomping player. The Deluxe is all about fast delivery of monster Tech 21 bass tones in the fray of a live performance. Dual inputs enable two instruments to be on-line and ready to go with a pop-free selector. You can program three custom tones for each input, or use all six for a single instrument. You can also program the FX loop to engage your favorite effect with a particular setting and the Deluxe will bring it every time that preset is selected.
The tower of power pumping through a stack of 10-inchers is the legendary bass tone for players who enjoy being heard. From chunky funk with the ubiquitous flip top, to the higher gain growl of indie rock. Still need more? Lean on the Character control for the fat distortion of Crimson and King’s X. It all sounds massive DI. Clean SVT® thump to dirty earthquaking rump, you dial it in.
VT Bass Deluxe
The Deluxe version of the SansAmp VT Bass features a combination of a warm, all-analog signal path and convenient digital recall. There are 6 program locations and dual inputs for two instruments to be on-line, ready to go. Create three custom tones for each input or use all six locations for a single instrument. And you can program the FX loop to engage your favorite effect each time a so-designated preset is selected. Super simple to operate, changes can easily be made on the fly – without having to refer to the owner's manual. You just turn the knobs to a setting you like, double click on a footswitch and it's saved in that channel. You can custom tweak and program six of your personal sounds, from vintage clean to gnarly overdrive to crushing distortion.
Two Channels, 60 watts
Channel 1 offers a range of Fender® styles, from chiming clean to sizzling, saturated 'tweed' tone. The cunning Punch control sets the amount of midrange break-up and overdrive, and a Bite™ button tightens the low end and adds brightness.
Things get way raunchier over in Channel 2, with amp sounds ranging from crunchy Marshall®, to gnarly Vox® AC30, to slamming Mesa® Rectifier styles. A Weep™ button increases the amount of even harmonics and thickens the sound. Its powerful and sophisticated midrange control, appropriately named Growl™, can produce brutal 'scooped' tones without any loss of girth or volume.
The powers of the Trademark 60 are many. Experience how this soulful combo can work its magic like a tonal Tiki god.

Single channel, 1x10, 30 watts
We call this our Direct Recording Combo Amp. We should have called it Yoda, because there isn’t much this diminutive wizard can’t handle. The heart of the crafty Trademark 30 is a modified version of the super flexible SansAmp GT2 pedal design. Construct your tone by selecting amp character, gain structure and speaker type, and then use the drive controls and active three-band EQ to nail your sound.
The 30-watt output is plenty loud for practice and monitoring but the balanced XLR and 1/4” outputs bring the big tones of this little combo to the studio mixer or PA system. Bedroom, rehearsal, studio or club, the Trademark 30 will prove it’s a giant amongst compact combos.
- Character section to construct a custom tone in seconds
- Professional quality Accutronics® 3-spring reverb
- 3-band, active tone controls, boost or cut 12dB
- Effect Loop
- Headphone output doubles as a 1/4” direct out
- Speaker extension output

Digitally programmable, 100% analog signal path
This triple channel rig-in-a-box is a no-brainer solution for players needing three hot tones served up fast and easy. Dial up a tone, double-tap one of the three preset footswitches, and it's saved. Yeah, it's that easy. Whatever you want, from country clean to nu-metal dirt, the TRI-A.C. will hand over three flavors of the finest SansAmp tones faster than a drive-thru.
The genuine analog SansAmp circuitry features Drive and Level controls, an active three-band EQ, and three selectable amp voicings:
TWEED = Fender®-style
BRITISH = Marshall®-style
CALIFORNIA = Mesa/Boogie®-style
When you select one of the 3 pre-voiced amp styles, every dimension of each individual personality changes. It is not merely a difference in EQ or gain structure. Each amplifier type has its own tonality and its own input sensitivity. Each interacts differently to the dynamics of your playing style and to the signal level of the instrument.
“Architecturally” create your own rig in seconds. You can easily achieve the most sought-after tube amp sounds, and entirely new ones as well. Choose amplifier type, modification and speaker cabinet/mic placement configurations. You can easily mix and match specific sound characteristics in ways that would otherwise be physically improbable, probably impractical and definitely not cost effective. The GT2 is a truckload of great amps in a single, simple pedal.
In celebration of our 20th anniversary, we proudly present a special relic-style version, the SansAmp Classic 20. The exterior design is taken from an actual “vintage” SansAmp pedal used on a world tour by a renowned artist. The main heart of the circuitry and inner workings remain virtually unchanged.
Of the pedal formats, SansAmp Classic is the most sophisticated and a tweaker’s delight. Its unconventional design not only keeps the unit compact, it is key to the wide range of sounds you can achieve. There is a bank of eight Character switches to adjust tonality, harmonics and dynamics. A 3-position input switch gives you a choice of preamp styles: Lead (Marshall®-style), Normal (Mesa Boogie®-style), and Bass (Fender®-style) which is excellent for rhythm as well as bass guitar. Four knob controls shape pre-amp contours, power amp contours, volume and final tone.
The SansAmp Classic was designed to recreate the natural sound of tube amplifiers -- without effects, so you can have a solid foundation of tone upon which to build. It is specifically engineered with a flat output to provide maximum flexibility and control with external EQ. The SansAmp Classic offers countless (we know, we’ve tried) combinations and permutations for you to explore.
