The Enabler is a dynamic bass preamp that is really 3 pedals in one: A musical 3-band EQ with enough gain to drive a power amp, a pristine balanced line driver, and a studio-grade headphone amplifier with an auxiliary input. This is the pedal that you will never want to be without.
It took more than a year to design, and there are no compromises. The EQ is a broad, powerful tone shaping tool with switchable mid frequency and a deep switch for extra bottom. A 2 megohm input impedance insures that your tone will be strong and natural whether you are using a modern active bass or an upright with a piezo pickup.The balanced line driver is completely silent and can drive any load with ease. The headphone amp is so advanced that a special internal power supply had to be designed to handle it – no other pedal is using a power supply like this one. It’s simple for the end user though, as The Enabler works off a standard 9v DC center-negative supply.
The aux input lets you connect your iPod or other device and mix it with your bass signal in the headphones. In the studio or on stage, the balanced XLR line driver will send a strong, clean signal into the mixing console.
The Enabler is the perfect tool for the studio, stage or practice. Stick it in your gig bag and soon you won’t be able to live without it.

Here's my brief review of this pedal, I purchased this for mainly silent practice/learning songs, I previously used a "Pocket Rocket Sb1" and was kinda frustrated with the ergonomics and the tone shaping limitations, this pedal has a pretty neutral sound when set flat, however it will add color with the Bass, Mids, Treble, Bass boost switch and Mid shift switch, the only limitations are the headphones, I suggest a set of closed ear type to capture all the suddle changes to your tone that this pedal can produce, as a side note, the internal amp can produce pretty high, clean sound levels, so be careful, I currently use an older pair of Sennheiser HP 360 Pro headphones, what I like about this pedal for silent practice is that it sits on the table next to your laptop/MP3 player, you can accurately match the song levels to the bass guitar levels and it is very easy to lower any one of them to study any passages that require further study, I haven't used the pedals other capabilities, but I did briefly hooked it up to a PA power amp ( Crown XTi 2000 and a pair of Yamaha Concert 115 speakers and played some music from an Mp3 player )via the 1/4 plug/jack cable connection to see if it would drive am amp, and .... yes it will work ...seems it will drive most power amps to full power. I haven't used the DI yet, but my main purpose is for silent practice, and as the saying goes "you get what you pay for", if your on the fence in spending this kind of money, look at it this way, you've spend some serious $$$ on your main rig, why not do the same with your practice rig, best of all no one has to hear you hashing out new songs and you get a very good preamp & DI in the same package
