The Bass Driver Distortion is the world’s most advanced overdrive
pedal designed specifically for bass. DigiTech’s exclusive AudioDNA™
technology is what makes the Bass Driver more than a standard
overdrive stompbox. Rather than working with a single distortion
circuit, the Bass Driver features a Morph knob that blends three totally
distinct overdrive and distortion types. You now get a wide variety of
overdrive sounds that can be dialed in quickly and easily.
1. Level Knob
Controls the effect’s output level. Turn this knob clockwise to increase
the output level, and counter-clockwise to decrease the output level.
2.Tone Knob
Controls the boost or cut of high frequencies. Turn this knob clockwise
to increase the high frequency content, and counter-clockwise to
decrease the high frequency content.
3. AC Adapter Jack
Connect a DigiTech PS200R power supply to this jack. Use the proper
supply for your area’s Mains line voltage.

4. Blend Knob
Controls the dry/distortion mix. Blending in dry signal helps maintain
the bottom end that is usually lost when using a standard overdrive or
distortion stompbox. At the Blend knob’s minimum position, only dry
signal is heard. At the Blend knob’s maximum position, only distortion
signal is heard. Experimenting with different Blend and Morph knob
settings provides tremendous flexibility in the overall distortion sound.
5. Morph Knob
Morphs the three different distortion sounds. The minimum position is
a light overdrive tone. The 12 o’clock position is a warm fat distortion
sound. The maximum position is a classic high gain fuzz that will push
your bass tone over the edge when you need it. Experiment with
different Morph and Blend knob settings to hear the wide variety of
sounds the Bass Driver is capable of creating.
6. Input Jack
Connect your instrument to this jack. Connecting a 1/4” instrument
cable to this jack engages battery power even though the Indicator LED
may not be lit. To prolong battery life, disconnect all cables from the
pedal when not in use.
7. Pedal Release Pins
These two pins are spring-loaded hinges that hold the pedal in place.
Push these pins in to release the pedal from the chassis exposing the
battery compartment. (See battery replacement diagram.)
8. Pedal
Turns the effect on and off.
9. Out 1(Amp) Jack
Connect this output to your bass amplifier.
10. Indicator LED
Indicates when the effect is turned on. If the LED becomes dim or does
not light when the cables are connected, the battery needs to be
11. Out 2 (Mixer) Jack
This output features DigiTech’s CIT™ cabinet modeling technology, that
lets you run the pedal directly into a mixer or recorder input without
having to use a bass amplifier. The CIT model is based on a 4x10
The Bass Driver has a single input (INPUT) and a pair of outputs (AMP
and MIXER). The two outputs give you the following options: running
into a bass amplifier, running directly to a mixing console or recording
device, or both. The MIXER output uses DigiTech’s advanced CIT™
cabinet modeling technology for an authentic bass amplifier sound
without using an amp. The CIT model is based on a 4x10 cabinet.
Follow these setup directions:
1.Turn the volume down on the amplifier/mixer you are connecting to.
2. Connect the pedal output to the amplifier/mixer input.
3. Connect the bass to the pedal input.
4. Connect the power supply to the pedal (optional).
5.Turn the LEVEL knob on the pedal to the minimum position.
6.Turn up your amplifier/mixer level to the preferred listening level.
7.Turn on the effect by pressing the PEDAL switch, and turn the
LEVEL knob up to the preferred listening level.
Battery Replacement
1. Using the tip of a 1/4” cable, push one of the release pins in on either
side of the pedal, and remove the pedal from the pedal chassis.
2. Remove the battery from the battery compartment and disconnect
the battery cable.
3. Connect a new battery to the battery cable and put it back in the
battery compartment. Make sure the battery cable does not interfere
with the spring or pedal switch arm.
4. Place one hole of the pedal over its corresponding pin.
5. Push the opposite pin in and lower the other side of the pedal into
place over the depressed pin. Release the pin. When the pedal is
properly fastened, both released pins are flush with the outer side of
the pedal.
