It was a deliberate choice to omit the usual gear page on my website (also known as the porn or gearslut category …) but this tool got me excited. It’s called the Basswitch, manufactured by Lehle and designed by Mr Ruppert, a bass player from Luxembourg (kudos to Jacques!). It’s a A/B input switcher, a high-end preamp, a clean booster, a parametric EQ, an FX and of course a D.I. Box (www.rmi.lu).
