[NAMM] dUG Pinnick signs a Tech21 amp

Tech21 unveils at NAMM 2015 a new amp head developed in collaboration with King’s X bassist Douglas Pinnick.

The Tech21 dUg Pinnick Signature Ultra Bass 1000 is a fully analog two-channel amp head on which you’ll find the artist’s famous “dual amp” sound, who usually blends guitar and bass amps.

On this Ultra Bass 1000, Tech21 employed this technique in a two-channel configuration: channel 1 works as the distorted channel of a guitar amp while channel 2 combines clean preamp and compressor for a more conventional bass sound. You can either switch channels or blend them with the included footswitch or built-in button. A Mute switch is also available.



  • 2 channels
  • Power: 1000W @ 4 Ohms
  • Controls: Drive high and low-pass filters, EQ, mid boost, compressor, master and level
  • Mix switch
  • SansAmp XLR output with -20 / 0dB switch
  • Effect loop
  • Separate tuner buffered output
  • Neutrik Speakon connectors
  • Kit for 2U rack mounting
  • Included 3-function footswitch

The Ultra Bass 1000 head can be completed with a 500W @ 8 Ohm speaker.
