UL 901 Bass Amp

Ships Feb 2019

Modern. Classic.

Epifani is proud to (re)introduce the UL-series professional bass amplifier. This is the original Epifani sound, the tone that started a revolution. Used for decades by legendary bassists like Oteil Burbridge, Anthony Jackson, and Matthew Garrison.


Legendary Sound

We kept the tone, but we redesigned this amp from the ground up. A brand new 3-band EQ takes you from jazz to rock to salsa and back again. And that famous mid-cut? It’s still there, still ready to switch over to the world’s funkiest slap sound with the touch of a button.

Pro Features

Superior engineering brings you up to 1000 watts of pure power with an impedance as low as 2 Ohms. The auto-sensing power supply automatically figures out the correct voltage no matter where in the world you are. And, the award-winning DI is back to give you the world’s most flexible pre-amp for studio recording in style.

Master Volume
Controls the overall volume of the amplifier. Other outputs including the DI Output, Tuner Out, and Effects Send are not affected by the Master Volume control.

Bass
Active shelving EQ control with 22 dB boost @ 40 Hz

Mid
Active bandpass EQ control with 17 dB boost @ 550 Hz

Treble
Active shelving EQ control with 22 dB boost @ 3 kHz

Treble Shift
Sets the apex for the Treble control to 3 kHz if pushed in, or 6 kHz if out. 

Mute
Mutes the amplifier. Red light is on when engaged. The Mute is automatically engaged when you turn on the amplifier.

Gain
Controls the volume of the signal passing through the EQ stage.

Mid Cut Switch
Activates Mid Cut EQ. Green light is on when active. Expertly tuned for the perfect scooped-mid slap tone. 

Mid Cut Level
Provides up to 8 dB of cut @ 800 Hz. To set perfectly: set knob at 12 o'clock position. Activate the Mid Cut using the switch or optional foot pedal. Boost or cut in small increments by turning the knob clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Active/Passive Switch
Provides a 10 dB boost for passive basses. Reduces output signal of active basses to avoid unwanted distortion.

Input Jack
Connect your instrument using a standard 1/4 inch instrument cable. 


Rear Panel

Effects Loop Send and Return
Use a standard 1/4-inch cable to connect the input of your effects to the Send jack, and the output of your effects to the Return jack.

Effects Mix
Mix between a dry (unaffected) signal and a wet (effected) signal when external effects are connected to the Effects Loop.

Pre/Post EQ Switch
When the switch is engaged the signal coming through the DI Output will be shaped by the active EQ (see above). When the switch is in the up position, no EQ will be sent through the DI Output. 

Ground Lift
Disconnects the chassis ground from the DI Output to reduce 60-cycle hum.

D.I. Level
Adjusts the the output level of the DI Output. 

D.I. Output
A balanced, low impedance output. Connect a standard XLR microphone cable to send a signal to a mixing console or recording device. 

Power On/Off
Turns your amplifier on and off. There is a 2-second delay as the amplifier performs a self-diagnostic. The Mute switch (see above) is automatically engaged when the amp is turned on.

T10 AL 250 Volt Fuse
Protects your Piccolo from power surges that can damage the amplifier. User changeable via the fuse compartment.

Universal AC Power Port
Use the included cable to connect your UL 901 to a standard power source.

Neutrik Speakon / 1/4-inch Combo Speaker Output
Connect either a Speakon™ twist-lock speaker cable or 1/4-inch speaker cable. For the best results use a Speakon-to-Speakon cable. Do not exceed the minimum impedance as indicated on the back of the amp.

Tuner Out
Connect your electronic tuner via a standard 1/4-inch instrument cable. UL 901 sends a signal to your tuner even when you engage the Mute switch.

Pedal
Use a TRS 1/4-inch to connect the optional foot pedal. Use the foot pedal to engage/disengage the Mid-Cut feature and Mute.
