Seymour Duncan Presents The SFX-06 Paranormal Bass EQ Direct Box [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]
Santa Barbara, California, Friday, December 08, 2006 — The Paranormal Bass EQ Direct Box is not your ordinary direct box. Like all DIs, it sports a balanced line out XLR jack (with ground lift) so you can feed a front-of-house mixing board or a recording console with no loss of signal. But that’s where the similarities end, because the Paranormal Bass Direct Box also features three bands of active EQ specifically optimized for bass. This allows you to dial in your tone in any room, sculpting your lows, mids, and highs quickly and easily with up to 12dB of boost or cut for each band of EQ. It’s the perfect solution for bassists who want the flexibility of an active system but don’t want to modify their instrument.
The SFX-06 also features our proprietary Slap Contour switch, which applies an additional preset EQ curve to whatever settings you’ve chosen with the 3-band EQ. This produces a tone that’s perfect for slap playing but also works great as an alternate sound for fingerstyle or pick playing. This switchable function makes the Paranormal Bass Direct Box even more flexible onstage and in the studio. It’s a must for every gig and every session.
The Paranormal runs in a single 9-volt battery or a regulated DC power supply. And like all Seymour Duncan pedals, it’s built like tank.

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.
The focus is jazz, blues, & roots-folk-world music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.
What you see is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas.
