The Vandall 500 Watt is a HEAD bass amplifier with 500 watts of power. Two preamplifiers were used in the construction of the amplifier: transistor and tube (12Ax7 tube). The transistor preamp provides dynamics and the tube preamp gives a characteristic soft sound. The two tracks can be freely mixed with each other.
The bass amplifier is equipped with a pulsed resonant power supply (SMPS), thanks to which the Vandall 500 achieves very high sound dynamics and high power at a low weight and size.
The amplifier is a great match for bass equipment of all well-known brands such as: Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Jackson, Musicman, ElectroHarmonics, TCElectronics. Boss and Dunlop.
The amplifier is equipped with the MLO (Mid-Level-Optimization) system, a patented Taurus system that allows optimal tone proportion in the mid-frequency range, depending on how the BASS and TREBLE controls are set.
Thanks to the MLO Equalizer, the tone change in the low frequency range takes place at the most even volume level possible. As a result, the change in the instrument's tone itself and not its amplification as in standard amplifiers is clearly felt.
DEXTER MK-2 guitar octaver effect
Transposition to the upper or lower octave
Possibility to mix both octaves simultaneously
Auto-detection of voltage polarity
LEVEL (-) signal level adjustment of the lower octave
LEVEL (+) adjustment of the upper octave signal level
DRY LEVEL adjustment of the base signal level
RANGE (-) adjustment of the range of the lower octave. In the MAX position, the lower octave operates over the entire bandwidth and responds to the entire sound scale. In the MIN position, the lowest bandwidth is limited, making the lower octave less effective in responding to the scale of sounds at the lowest position. This eliminates the lowest band of sound, which is unreadable and blurs the sound from the instrument when played in the low registers, leaving only aliquots that are more desirable.
RANGE (+) adjusts the range of the upper octave. In the MAX position, the upper octave operates over the entire bandwidth and responds to the entire scale of sound. In the MIN position, the highest bandwidth for the upper octave is limited, i.e. the processing of the scale of sounds by the octaver located highest. In this way, very high tones can be eliminated, which, when processed in the upper octave for certain instruments, can sound too high giving them an artificial character.
Polyphony is realized by a high-quality 24-bit DSP processor
Auto-detection of voltage polarity - allows the use of positive or negative polarity on the power supply
DC assistant - protects the effect from signal loss. If the power supply is disconnected or the voltage is too low (<6V), the effect is automatically switched to "bypass" mode.
TRUE BYPASS - in bypass mode, the instrument's primary signal passes passively, bypassing all electronic components
