The 1U rackmount SansAmp RBI is a pumped-up, expanded version of Tech 21's popular SansAmp Bass Driver DI pedal. In addition to Drive, Presence, and active Bass and Treble controls, the SansAmp RBI has a dedicated Mid control and an XLR Output Level control for optimum performance with PA systems. It also features an Effect Loop with a Mix 50/50 switch (for parallel or series operation), an XLR output with selectable levels, and a buffered direct XLR output to provide a dry signal. Include access to the most coveted classic and modern bass tones, with unlimited freedom to create your own, and the SansAmp RBI is practically mandatory for any bass player.

Armed with a truckload of bass amp rigs in a single rackspace, you can travel as heavy or light as you like:

  • Show up at any studio with just a SansAmp RBI and plug directly into the board for premium tones without miking.
  • Gig with the SansAmp RBI directly through the house PA without using a separate amp.
  • Go to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, a Bass Power Engine 60 (see optional accessories below) and run directly through the house P.A. system.
  • Take a more "traditional" set-up to a gig with a SansAmp RBI, power amp and speaker cabinet, and run directly through the house P.A. system.


  • Drive adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive.  
  • Presence brings out the upper harmonic content and attack.  
  • Blend allows you to mix the direct instrument signal with SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulation circuitry.  
  • Active Bass and Treble controls cut or boost ±12dB.  
  • Dedicated Mid control, cut or boost ±12dB.  
  • Individual Level control for the XLR out to optimize your amp's output relative to the P.A. system.  
  • Effects Loop.  
  • Mix 50/50 switch to configure the Effects Loop in series or parallel.  
  • 1/4" rear input and XLR output with selectable levels.
  • Buffered uneffected XLR output to run a dry signal to a separate channel.  
  • Footswitch input to engage unit.  Footswitch output to chain and toggle between another SansAmp RBI.

A dream come true


Using the settings in the back as a starting point, I was able to quickly and easily dial in my bass sound. In addition, my bass sound is now stronger, punchier and carries more weight than ever before. This unit is something I have been dreaming about for 18 years, and it did not disappoint.
