The Bass Player’s DI

From a company that’s been synonymous with bass tone for decades, the Ampeg SCR-DI is more than your average DI—it’s a veritable Swiss Army knife for bass players looking to upgrade their stage and studio rigs. Think of it as a preamp pedal that combines a DI unit with a tone stack, switchable EQ, and overdrive circuit. The die-cast zinc enclosure is just as rugged as you want your stomp to be, and inside, an impressive Scrambler overdrive lets you sweep from low growl to tube-like grind with a quick turn of the gain knob.

Total Tonal Control

The legacy Ampeg preamp and tone-stack circuits offer a wide range of authentic tones, from Portaflex to harmonically rich SVT. The EQ offers additional tonal control, including Ultra-Hi and Ultra-Lo tone shaping. Finally, the SCR-DI has all the connections you need to deliver all that to the front of house. Along with a built-in headphone out and aux in for practicing along with backing tracks, this stomp features balanced outs for plugging into a PA or amplifier at your next gig.
