"Shockingly robust! Breath taking might better describe the experience. Felt excited like a kid again. Luscious and thick, musical across the frequency spectrum with a profound body in lower registers. Everything I've been trying to find through multiple head and pedal combos, all at my fingertips. Reminded me why I love playing heavy riffs at unbearable (to the faint of heart) volumes. A-plus piece of gear, fully functional and delivers more than they promise! Not a paid actor, just a diy doomer!

"The Annex MKII is probably the most versatile amps I've ever used. Almost any setting is instantly useable, and you're able to dial in saturation from from chill to thrill and everywhere in between"
- Ryan Haft (Wrong, Capsule)
"This amp pushes pulverizing tones with the characteristics of classic hi gain amps, but with clarity throughout the full frequency range. The EQ is super responsive, but the amp will sound brutal no matter where it is set. Used this with only a tuner in front of it and it delivered the goods, with help of the Nuñez 412s which complemented the dynamic and tonal response of the head. Don't sleep on this monster".
- Tim Mullaney (Genocide Pact)
"Nuñezamps' Annex MKII head is a strong, bold, but imminently tweakable and versatile head. I used it in San Diego alongside my standard backline rig, which the Annex stomped in terms of mid range growl, low end punch and weight. When you get all that dialed in, you can then further tweak it to bring out clarity and definition that would typically get lost under everything else. I'm Definitely going to track with this thing. Thanks Jon!!"

ANNEX BASS CHANNEL:
The Annex Bass Channel isn’t for the person who’s overly sentimental about the pedals on their board— once you’ve heard the dirty warmth of the ON tone paired with the harmonically rich grind of the LOUD channel, you’ll most likely do what I did and sell 90% of your pedalboard. Not to say that the Annex doesn’t play well with others.. it pairs wonderfully with the few choice drive and preamp pedals I still own. I’ve kept my board rather carefully curated, and the Annex sits right at the top.
- Eric Burroughs (Richmond, VA)
The Annex Bass Channel is insane brotha! It has everything I’ve been searching for plus more. No need to look for a overdrive, fuzz, or distortion pedal ever again! It’s really an amp in a box for me. If you have an amp that has your desired wattage this is all you need. Just dial in your tone with the pedal and you’re good to go! It saves real estate on my pedal board with the boost option. Initially I thought I’d rock the boost on at all times but when I took it to practice I only used it for our most brutal and heaviest material. Which is great! The pedal itself has an insane amount of low end to play with even with the boost on. Being able to transition between the two tones is super convenient and really saves a lot of money. Previously I was using two pedals to achieve what the the Annex Drive has to offer with just the bypass on. Now I can push it even further with the boost if needed.
Being that it's exclusively designed as a bass pedal is awesome and straight to the point. Bass players don’t get enough love. If anyone asked me what pedal to get I would suggest the Annex Bass Channel. It’s super versatile obtaining tones all across the board on the bass player spectrum. You can go classic achieving super warm Motown tones or get nasty and brutal. Its like an SVT in a box. With that being said this pedal can take abuse. In my opinion what puts the Annex Bass Channel to the test is playing in the arena of heavy music. This is perfect for the heaviest of players. I’ve gone through my share of searching for pedals and the growing pains that come along with it. What I like is that it doesn’t get muddy and tracks great. My tone stays fat, overdriven, and has killer sustain. Also, Its super easy to dial in and not too touchy. I seriously wanna start a grindcore band just to show this thing off! Click boost on and you can get the best sludge/doom bass tone out there. This is the pedal that can push those limits and can handle it with no problem. It sounds massive! It's ideal for a touring because its built like a fucking tank and a perfect size.

“The Annex Bass Channel is a truly unique and powerful preamp pedal. It can go from a pushed bassman tone to a vintage SVT sound all the way to full on distortion with just a little bit of tweaking. I plug it straight into a power amp and it’s all I need for my “always on” tone. A lot of popular bass preamp pedals out there sound clanky and not as warm or natural as a real tube amp. Not the case with the Annex. I don’t miss touring with a 90lb head even a little bit anymore.”
- Tyler Forsythe (Axis, Gouge Away)
"Shit, I don't really have the language haha! I just think it rips and there's no loss of low end, which is impossible to find".
- Danny Gonzales (The Jacuzzi Boys)
"Whats up guys! Just wanted to say that the Annex is fucking killer. Just finished tracking bass for an album I’m working on, and it’s on the whole time. I put it up against a few other pedals and not a single one could match the depth of the low end and the clarity on top. Kudos, dudes".
Joel Coan (Recording/Mix Engineer)
"The Annex Bass Channel is a powerfully useful and diverse pedal. I've been able to use it no matter the musical style, and has the capability to make any amp sound better. It can be used as a clean preamp to a full on in your face fuzz/overdriven tone that never loses low end! It's unique voicing allows me to shape any bass the way I want and with always more to give! The Annex Bass Channel has become apart of my sound and haven't been able to part ways since I received it!
- Mario Gonzalez (Zephyrplex)
"Wanted to really work with the Annex Bass Channel before I said anything. I've run it at a ton of rehearsals and 4 shows so far, I feel like I finally have it dialed in even though I can't really find a tone I don't like. This thing RIPS. I fucking love it. Been getting a lot of compliments after shows about how rad it sounds, and have been recommending it to friends. This is how I've wanted my tone to sound, but have always been struggling to get there. I replaced what was my go to pedal for a while with the Annex, and will never look back. Thanks so much man.
- Spencer Wessels (Montclair, CA)
Hey Jonathan I just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you how much I love the Annex Bass Channel! As a bass player there are tons of options when it comes to dirt pedals and I've tried (and currently own) quite a few. The Annex is unlike any other dirt pedal I've owned. Nothing breaks up like the Annex does and nothing is as gnarly, especially once you kick on the boost. The boost circuit could be it's own pedal..it's that good! With the distortion engaged you can get that great vintage breakup, and then when you want to melt faces you kick on the boost! This pedal so incredibly versatile. It's massive sounding and it covers a lot of ground. You never lose your fundamental lows, and it's one of the quieter dirt boxes I own. I could go on and on, but I won't. You did an awesome job and the pedal is built to last. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to whatever you have coming next!
- Dan (Key West, FL)
"The Annex Bass Channel is, in my opinion, the best preamp/drive pedal for bass I've ever played. Everything I need, from clean boost to enormous gross fuzz, is all there in one box. It gives you an enormous amount of control over your tone without necessarily becoming your tone, which is especially rare for a drive pedal. Having spent a lot of time messing around with the different settings, the worst thing about it is that I've yet to find a sound I don't like, which makes it hard to pick just one sound to use. It made every bass and amp I used sound bigger and more detailed. This is truly my "desert island" pedal: if I was ever forced to choose just one, it would be a no-brainer".
