The Bass Buddy II







Built for Christian Wisch

The Bass Buddy II is the latest of the Rerun bass amplifiers.  Sticking with the concept of a very simple amp, the Bass Buddy II has only four controls: Volume, Mids, Tone (tilt) and Compressor.  That said, there are a load of sounds possible from a very clean modern tube sound to thick and overdriven to a thumpy compressed sound reminiscent of 60´s studio sounds.  The power amp this time around includes a pair of 6550s for around 70 Watts.  They make a very nice impression with heaps of bass and a great full tone.

The vintage case allows for plenty of airflow which is important for these big tubes!  Inside, the all aluminium construction is very solid and the U-profile pieces even allow for the controls and input to be  shielded, making the amp even quieter.
