Fender Downtown Express Bass Preamp
Your one-stop shop for bass tone-shaping, the Downtown Express bass multi-effect puts everything you need for killer bass tone right at your feet. All the bass essentials are there—compressor, 3-band EQ and overdrive—each switchable on its own, or you can use the Mute switch to kill the signal for silent tuning. The Direct Output makes it easy to integrate this pedal into any performance situation—stage or studio. We recognize that a truly powerful signal chain needs to be flexible, so we included a switch that lets you reorder the compressor and overdrive circuits to taste.
Designed by Alex Aguilar, the Downtown Express is an all-original Fender circuit. To ensure this pedal is performance-ready we let musicians kick it around, took their feedback to heart and refined it. The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, and the LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance.
Use the Downtown Express on your next gig or session and add some rumble to your rig.
Compressor, overdrive and 3-Band EQ— and packed them into one easy-to-use unit. We included a full suite of controls for each effect so you can precisely shape your sound.
Use the Direct Output to interface directly with mixers and other performance or studio gear.
Sometimes you want your compressor in front of your overdrive, sometimes after. Use the Order toggle switch to reorder your effects at will and design your perfect tone.
The Master Volume control lets you raise or lower the volume of all effects simultaneously, while maintaining their individual levels.
LED-illuminated knobs show your control settings at a glance—even on dark stages.
Every Fender effects pedal is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum.
