    Tech 21 Sansamp XB Driver XBDR

    Unleash Your Bass Potential with the SansAmp XB Driver

    Dive into a world of unparalleled bass tones with the SansAmp XB Driver, the ultimate culmination of over three decades of bass gear innovation from Tech 21. Integrating the essence of our most iconic bass products—including the SansAmp Bass Driver DI, Para Driver DI, Q\Strip, and the dUg Pinnick Ultra Bass 1000—this 100% analog, dual-channel powerhouse is designed to elevate your sound from traditional to downright diabolical.


    The SansAmp XB Driver offers dual-amp, bi-amp, and DI capabilities in a single, streamlined unit. Featuring 15 knobs and 3 switches laid out intuitively like familiar amplifier controls, you can effortlessly sculpt a vast spectrum of bass tones without needing a technical manual. The Clean and Drive channels operate independently or can be blended using the Mix footswitch, enhanced by sweepable LPF and HPF filters in Mix mode to further refine your sonic signature.

    Inspired by bass legends like dUg Pinnick, Geddy Lee, John Entwistle, and Chris Squire, the XB Driver pays homage to their innovative spirit and complex rig setups. It empowers you to achieve similar depth and clarity, whether on stage, in the studio, or wherever your music takes you.

    Crafted with Tech 21’s renowned SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation technology, the XB Driver ensures a seamless integration with any bass speaker cabinet setup, delivering a rich, full-bodied sound reminiscent of a meticulously miked cabinet without the inconsistencies of traditional methods.

    From its versatile connectivity options—including tuner output, effect send and return, instrument input, and balanced XLR output—to its rugged, all-metal construction and silent-switching custom footswitches, the XB Driver is built to withstand the rigors of professional use while providing maximum tonal flexibility.

    • Active tone controls (Bass, Treble) with +/-12dB cut or boost
    • Sweepable semi-parametric EQ controls (Mid Shift, Mid) from 100Hz to 2kHz, +/-16dB
    • Level control adjusts output volume without altering tone
    • Master Volume affects overall output level
    • Clean channel features vintage FET-based compression for warmth and transparency
    • Drive channel includes adjustable gain, Bite switch for presence boost, and Pre/Post switch for mid-range placement
    • Mix mode with crossover switch activates LPF and HPF filters for precise tonal shaping
