Geddy Lee pedal

Recommended Posts

Oh, cool.  At least they’ve put it in a ‘proper’ case and not that ghastly one with the cheap and wobbly control pots they use for the fly-rig / dug preamp. 

Will be interested to hear it and how it differs from my Sansamp bass driver pedals.

That’s a very interesting pedal methinks. Not a particular Rush/GL fan but I do like his tone. I just wonder how much we’ll get stuffed for it.

They were pretty reasonable with the DP3X price, and it’s listed as $199 so I reckon it will be ok.

And if it doesn’t have things like a tuner it may come in cheaper than the dUg pedal.

I presume it will also have an xlr out.

surely I don’t need another dirt box

I wouldn't if I were you! None of the other pedals Tech21 do in portrait form factor do, and the prymaxe ad doesn't make any mention of it.

I wasn’t sure about the XLR out as you say, because Geddy is without an amp as we know.

Instead of going down the DP3X, fly rig route then, it’s just Geddy in a box.

Not bothered either way if they have it nailed as it will be good

If I remember right they tend not to launch the webpage until it’s been NAMMed and ready to go, or at least imminent to ship

I can’t understand why it isn’t on the Tech21 webpage.

Probably because Prymaxe either dropped the ball or were very naughty in listing it before the big unveiling!

I'm interested in this...

Ooh, I'd been thinking about a VT Bass for some classic rock tones for the covers band.  Think I'll hold off a while and have a look at these when they are released.

@The59Sound only logic I can think is that you have the rackmount/Preamp, therefore for those that want that sound, but use a board and don’t like a fly rig type thing, it’s a pretty reasonable option

Form factor is more like the VT Bass and character pedals than the VTDI / BDDI, etc. Shame it was missed though but not the end of the world. Guess it keeps costs down!

Do we actually know if it has a DI or not considering we have not seen any proper pictures, videos or reviews.

Its a guess based on its form factor.

on the photo does not show a di,  or its well hidden, think it is a pedal pure and simple, no reason why cannot run out through a flat di though, but as others said there already is a rack mount geddy preamp.

Aye tis true, most desks can accept a balanced or unbalanced signal, and I am sure between the player and the venue there will be a DI box if required

I apologise if anyone has mentioned this before. I have only just found out about it. I'm assuming its getting showcased at NAMM and hopefully will be on sale soon after that. Dear Santa......

For those technophobe BCers like me not suffering from perpetual GAS, please could you explain what this is, what you hope it might do, and why it's important ?

I'm not being sarcastic, I'd genuinely like to know.
