The pedal takes up where its predecessor, the DB 924, left off. It is an all-FET preamp, and has been squeezed into a micro steel enclosure. Aguilar describes its two-band EQ as “musically-sculpted,” saying that it “enhances any bass you run through it, adding body and weight to the low-end while opening the high-end.”
The two bands each have 18dB of maximum boost on offer, occuring at 40 Hz for the
bass, and 4kHz for the treble. The DB 925 can be powered by a 9V or a standard 9V power supply, and features a ‘gig-saver bypass’ which ensures signal still passes through the pedal if the battery dies.
The Aguilar DB925 lists for £195, and will be available exclusively through Barnes & Mullins from March 2020.
