Ashdown Tone Pocket Headphone Pre Amp
As Ashdown's most compact preamp to date, the Tone Pocket provides you with your own personal performance for your headphones. Its small size and light weight make it a blessing when travelling. You can even fit it in your back pocket or sit it on top of your desktop, making it the perfect companion for practice, studio, and stage applications.
The sound it offers has been specially optimised for the bass guitar. With its 3-band EQ and volume control, you can personalise your sound and experiment with your playing. If you've also connected an mp3 device, the Tone Pocket enhances your music with additional power and increased clarity and tone. It's also perfect for using with computers that lack that extra oomph.
Along with the standard instrument input and headphone output, you also have a line in/out and a USB port. The line input is perfect for connecting your smart phone or music player, letting you play along to your favourite song or backing track. The line out lets you connect to an amplifier or PA system, perfect for monitoring your performance.
The USB port provides you with two functions. The first is that it allows you to record your sound with your favourite DAW. Its second function is to charge the internal 9v battery, giving you up about 8 hours of play time. This is perfect if you want to practice your bass anywhere. You can also power the Ashdown preamp via mains or car charger.
