Trace Elliot Launches the Transit B Preamp Pedal for Bass

Transit B Preamp  Pedal for Bass

Portable, practical, professional: These are the qualities that define the new Trace Elliot Transit B Bass Guitar Preamp Pedal. As more players turn to convenient, lightweight and travel-ready gear, Trace Elliot answers the need with these self-contained rigs that function brilliantly regardless of location or venue. The player simply takes their Transit B with them anywhere they go, and feeds their tone directly to the front of house mix.

The Transit B Bass Guitar Preamp Pedal is a professional-grade preamp for bass guitarists. It offers 5-band EQ and its own unique features, including Pre-Shape with Passive/Active controls; Drive with Overdrive blends; Equalization with Pre-Comp and Post-Comp; dual-band Compression; and Mute/Tune.

In addition, the Transit B features a clean signal path with simple controls that make it easy to achieve an awesome bass tone. It also has studio-quality D.I. Pre and Post XLR outputs (with ground lift) to ensure that the same tone the player gets on stage is the same tone in the house mix. The Transit B has striking backlit controls with distinctive colors. Using the backlit knobs for the tuner is a novel tool, since the entire width of the front panel becomes the tuning scale.

The Transit B comes with an embroidered nylon carry bag. The owners manual CD-ROM includes the REAPER DAW software and Peavey ReValver amp modeling software. A Union Jack sticker is included as a reminder of Trace Elliots U.K. roots. The units will launch at the 2017 NAMM Show, Jan. 19-22 in Anaheim, Calif. To learn more about Trace Elliot, visit
