Are you interested in using a condenser microphone to amplify your upright bass -- something like a DPA 4099, or an AMT mic, or maybe some other mic by Shure, Audio-Technica, or other manufacturer? Condenser mics require phantom power, and many amps don't supply it. And many phantom power supplies only have XLR outputs, further complicating connection to a "standard" bass amp that isn't really designed for a low-impedance microphone.

We've offered the ART mini mic preamp as a "solutions box" for folks getting the DPA mic for a while, but some players don't want or need the extra functions/bells and whistles included on that -- and it's not necessarily designed for road use, so you have to kind of handle it with care at the gig.

The smart people at Radial Engineering have put together another fantastic "solutions box," and made just as ready for rough handling as their other gear. The new SB-48UB is a simple problem-solver; it has an XLR input with switchable 12v/48v phantom power, and dual outputs - a 1/4" unbalanced and XLR balanced output.

How does it help you?

  • If you have a preamp or amp with an XLR input that you like, but it doesn't have 48v phantom (like the DTAR Solstice)? Put this between the mic and the pre; you get the great sound of your existing gear with the proper phantom powering.
  • If you want to blend a mic with a pickup using a two-channel preamp, like the Radial BassBone OD or PZ Pre, RMI Basswitch, etc.? Put it between the two and plug the 1/4" output into one of the channels on the preamp (with your pickup in the other.) Properly impedance matched, easily blended signal.
  • Want to plug a mic into a standard bass amp? Just run out the 1/4" output, and tweak the EQ on the amp. Done!
Both outputs may be used at the same time, too -- the XLR could feed the PA while the ΒΌ" out could feed a stage amp or monitor.

The SB-48UB is housed in a seriously rugged steel chassis and powered by a 15VDC supply (included). The power is elevated by an internal non-radiating charge pump to get it up to 48-volts, or it can be set to 12VDC.
