Bassists have not been forgotten in Two Notes's range and Le Bass offers plenty of tone-tweaking options for shaping a DI signal or adding a bit of flavour in front of an amp.

While channel A supports a typically solid bass tone with treble and bass controls to place it in the right zone, channel B has the facility to add a nice bit of growl to your bass, while focusing how the midrange content sits.

Cold Fusion mode offers more of that, mixed in with a bit of the clean sound for extra articulation, while Hot Fusion has the options for you, if you prefer your bass distorted.

It could be partnered with a cab simulator as a whole portable rig, but Le Bass also lends itself to live work with an amp, whether changing its sound or not - you can put one in the chain and have control over the sound going to FOH, while feeding your amp with the dry through signal.

Trevor Curwen has played guitar for several decades – he's also mimed it on the UK's Top of the Pops. Much of his working life, though, has been spent behind the mixing desk, during which time he has built up a solid collection of the guitars, amps and pedals needed to cover just about any studio session. He writes pedal reviews for Guitarist and has contributed to Total Guitar, MusicRadar and Future Music among others.
