DUG PINNICK. UNMISTAKABLE IN EVERY WAY
--THAT VOICE, THE SONGWRITING, HIS STYLE, AND, OF COURSE, THE DUG
A super-compact adaptation of his Tech 21 Ultra Bass 1000 Signature
head, the DP-3X also recreates the sound dUg originally developed
way back in the ‘80s, merging high-end distortion with low-end bass.
Prior to his signature head, this involved running a guitar amp and
a bass amp together, along with rack full of effects. Wanting to
further streamline his gear for occasions when his full Tech 21 rig
simply isn’t practical, dUg collaborated on the all-analog DP-3X
pedal. Personally beta-testing the DP-3X on a European tour, dUg
encountered a different backline in each and every venue. But no
matter which amp was on stage, dUg was able to nail his immense tone
each and every night.
In addition to achieving dUg’s unique tone, the DP-3X has the
flexibility to provide traditional bass amp sounds as well. Mix mode
engages Drive to bring in distortion and Chunk for upper harmonics.
A Gain button provides additional distortion and compression. In
clean/full-range mode, Drive and Chunk disengage, while Comp and
Gain remain active. Other controls include 3-band active EQ with
switchable Mid and a master Volume. Features include chromatic
tuner, headphone capability, and an XLR Output to go direct to the
PA desk or studio board without compromising detail, warmth or
