Housing an all-original Fender circuit designed by Alex Aguilar, the Downtown Express is your one-stop shop for bass tone shaping. This bass multi-effect pedal gives you everything you need for amazing bass tone. You've got all the essentials right at your feet: compression, 3-band EQ, and overdrive — each switchable on its own. Tap the Mute switch to kill the signal for silent tuning. The direct output makes it easy to integrate the Downtown Express into any onstage or studio performance scenario. Music Experience knows that flexibility in a signal chain is important, which is why we appreciate the ability to reorder the compressor and overdrive circuits.
To ensure the Downtown Express was performance-ready, Fender gave it to musicians to kick it around, then took their feedback, refined it, and built it into the pedal. The chassis is built from lightweight yet durable anodized aluminum, and the LED-backlit knobs show your control settings at a glance on a darkened stage. Deploy the Downtown Express on your next live gig or recording session and see how quick and easy it is to dial in killer bass tone.
Your one-stop shop for bass tone-shaping, the Downtown Express bass multi-effect puts everything you need for killer bass tone right at your feet. All the bass essentials are there—compressor, 3-band EQ and overdrive—each switchable on its own, or you can use the Mute switch to kill the signal for silent tuning. The Direct Output makes it easy to integrate this pedal into any performance situation—stage or studio. We recognize that a truly powerful signal chain needs to be flexible, so we included a switch that lets you reorder the compressor and overdrive circuits to taste.
We took 3 essential bass effects—compressor, overdrive and 3-Band EQ— and packed them into one easy-to-use unit. We included a full suite of controls for each effect so you can precisely shape your sound.
Use the Direct Output to interface directly with mixers and other performance or studio gear.
Sometimes you want your compressor in front of your overdrive, sometimes after. Use the Order toggle switch to reorder your effects at will and design your perfect tone.
The Master Volume control lets you raise or lower the volume of all effects simultaneously, while maintaining their individual levels.
LED-illuminated knobs show your control settings at a glance—even on dark stages.
