EBS announces the EBS ValveDrive DI!

EBS-ValveDriveDI-front-kleinThe awarded original EBS ValveDrive overdrive/preamp pedal came out in 2006. Over the years it has collected high-profile fans like Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Sean Hurley of John Mayer’s band and George ‘Goggi’ Holm of Sígur Ros for its ability to provide great classic tube amp bass sound – from a pedal! Now it’s time for a revival! The EBS ValveDrive DI will be introduced at the NAMM Show 2014!
New outputs for extended use :
The main new benefit with the ValveDrive DI is the XLR-output, offering a balanced floating signal that allows you to plug the pedal straight into the mixing console in the studio or at the gig. Add to that, the former standard passive output has turned into a low-impedance output so you can use the ValveDrive DI as a stand-alone preamp with an external power amp to give you the pure ValveDrive tone right out of your speakers.
New powering technique :
There are plenty of pedals with a tube in it, but few deliver the warm fat tone of a tube amp. The original EBS ValveDrive was powered by a 12V AC power supply converted to high voltage inside to give the tube the push it needs to deliver real tube distortion. EBS has developed the ValveDrive DI to do the same using a 9V DC power supply. The benefit is a pedal much more compatible with standard power supplies.
 The tube :
The EBS ValveDrive DI is equipped with a superior quality tube.
 Included accessories :
The EBS ValveDrive DI comes with a 9V DC power supply included.
 Price and availability :
The EBS ValveDrive DI will be introduced at the WinterNAMM Show 2014, at the end of January. It will start shipping out of Sweden shortly after. Price TBA.



EBS-Classic500-kleinThe EBS Classic 500 is the natural evolution of the previous EBS Classic 450 bass head. The extra power and the new compact casing bring flexibility and portability to the table. This is a very capable bass head with a stunning look.
Vintage tone: 
The new EBS Classic 500 retro-styled bass amp offers a classic tube amp-type of sound although it is a solid state bass head. The musical boosted Drive control and the exceptional control offered by the dual midrange section makes it easy to dial-in any type of vintage (or modern) bass sound. The plenty of power offered from the new power amp makes the Classic 500 an amazingly versatile bass amp with a beautiful tone. Transparent to the character of your bass – in true EBS tradition! The thoughtfully designed EQ puts you firmly in the driving seat adding everything from subtle, vintage overdrive to a mean driving distortion, whilst maintaining a beautiful low rounded bottom end.
The perfect match for EBS ClassicLine cabinets:
With the new compact design, the Classic 500 is the perfect match for ALL EBS ClassicLine cabinets, including the narrower mini size 112 cabinets. The new design also works fine with the ProLine and NeoLine cabinets.

EBS-Classic210-kleinEBS is proud to present a new addition to the ClassicLine speaker cabinets – the EBS ClassicLine 210. The EBS ClassicLine cabinets are developed for musicians with a love of a classic sound and look. The EBS ClassicLine gear is 25 years of bass equipment building experience packaged in a vintage outfit offering an unrivalled tonal clarity and power to blow your audience away.  
The new EBS ClassicLine 210 is equipped with 2x 10” selected conventional speakers and a 2” tweeter. It can be used as a stand-alone cabinet, or together with a 410 or 212 cabinet. Flip it 90 degrees, and it will fit on top of the 112 cabinet. Since it is an 8 ohm cabinet, an EBS Reidmar head can drive a pair of 210s, or one together with a 112. The also new EBS Classic 500 amps and the 112 cabinet share the width of a flipped 210 cabinet, so you can stack them together nicely. The ClassicLine 210 is ported on the backside, to reduce the risk of a rattling front cloth.
The ClassicLine cabinets make the great EBS bass sound available to every bass player. Reminiscent of the EBS ProLine cabinets, with a little warmer and rounder character that adds a vintage touch. These are powerful cabinets that will make demanding bass players satisfied. All cabinets in the line are equipped with a 2” tweeter controlled by a fader, except the 112 cabinet that use an on/off switch to handle the tweeter.

EBS-fuzzmo-kleinThe EBS FuzzMo pedal is developed by EBS to fill the gap between EBS excellent distortion pedals and a vintage type of fuzz effect for bass. The pedal produces a wide range of vintage and modern effects with several features to dial-in Your favorite fuzz tone.
Blending possibilities:
Similar to the Billy Sheehan Signature Drive, you can blend the fuzz tone with a clean signal. Fire up the distortion engine gain as much as you like with the ’Gain’ control, set the ’Volume’ for the distortion and then blend in the clean unaffected tone by turning up the ’Blend’ control. Instead of a tone control, the EBS FuzzMo features a ’Shape’ control that changes the shape of the gain engine, from triangle to square wave through the passive tone stack.
Character filter: 
If the controls does not offer enough flexibility, this pedal also feature a ’Character’ filter. This goes in three steps from flat, to subtle mid-scoop, to maximum mid-scoop (or cut).  
True Bypass:
The EBS FuzzMo uses a True Bypass footswitch. The pedal runs on 9V DC battery or Power Supply.
