Providence Guitar & Bass Electric Parts


Active Impedance Converter Vitalizer-G1
VZ-G1

Passive sound with powerful signal!
The Vitalizer-G1 helps prevent losing player's unique passive sound from guitar and converts the signal to powerful and vivid low impedance signal.
Based on the *Vitalizer and our electronic technologies, the Vitalizer-G was downsized, insulated, designed and improved to be equipped with a guitar.
It converts the signal to low impedance signal while preventing losing guitar's natural sound minimally and retaining passive sound.
< While the signal from Vitalizer™-G1 doesn’t seem like anything changed, the strong signal from guitar that we set the sound image from 5m cable will be a great weapon for you as it helps release from stress of noise and signal degradation from long instrument cables and many pedals connected in between the guitar and amp.

Vitalizer Bass Preamp
VP-B1-2(2Band EQ Preamp)
VP-B1-3(3Band EQ Preamp)

The Vitalizer-B1 is the onboard bass preamp with Vitalizer circuit that helps prevent losing player's unique passive sound from electric bass and converts the signal to powerful and vivid low impedance signal.


●Active Impedance Converter Vitalizer-B1
The Vitalizer™-B1 applied the Vitalizer, that makes sure the sound doesn't get too Hi-Fi while respecting instrument's character of sound signals for onboard on bass.
By designed to secure big headroom, output and wide frequency range, it converts to low impedance signal without losing bass' natural sound.
While the signal from Vitalizer-B1 doesn't seem like anything changed, the strong signal from bass that we set the sound image from 5m cable will be a great weapon for you as it helps release from stress of noise and signal degradation from long instrument cables and many pedals connected in between the bass and amp.

●Vitalizer Bass Preamp VP-B1
The Vitalizer Bass Preamp VP-B1 is a miniaturized version of our bass preamp pedal, DBS-1 with Vitalizer-B1 circuit to be used as an onboard bass preamp.
It provides clean, minimized distortion with wide range output, and the noise level is less than -100dbu even when it’s ran with 9VDC.
The EQ section employs the EQ curve that doesn’t falls on some of the frequency from passive tone and active treble section.It is designed to demonstrate the passive tone well even in active. The EQ control uses custom W curve pot that boost/cut Treble/Mid/Bass smoothly.
The VP-B1-2 comes with custom 2 position EP Volume Pots (Treble/Bass), and the VP-B1-3 comes with 3 custom EP Pots (Treble/Mid/Bass).

eXpresso II Bass Pickups
eX II J Bass1 Set (eX II-J11/eX II-J31) for 4 string
eX II J5 Bass1 Set (eX II-511/eX II-531) for 5 string

Providence espresso II Pickups are series of pickups with a theme of creating today'Ss sound with vintage sound as a foundation.

■Characteristics:
●Collaborating with professionals
Providence espresso II Pickups are produced by Shozo Shimura who has done many setup for top artists, and Providence's engineers designed ideas with support from Minoru Kariya (Kariya-Pickups) to create the pickups that demonstrates players' sound fully.

●Natural and flat sound
eX II J Bass1 Set / eX II J5 Bass1 Set are J-Bass type pickups for electric bass. These are a bit high output pickups to pick up the strings sound accurately and delivers flat and natural sound.

●Adjusting volume balance by unique coil winding
By having different coil winding, it compensates the volume difference and sound quality that are caused by placement. If same coil winding were applied for both next and bridge, output from neck will be hotter than bridge, but by having different coil winding, it adjust the mix balance by controlling volume difference.

●Drastic Noise Measures
Our know-how from pursuing the signals and surroundings are applied to measure noise including grounding pole piece with copper foil and using single core shielding cable in output line.We removed the noise such as hum noise when the player’s not touching metal parts such as strings, bridge, and pegs maximally.

●Hum Canceling Effect
The bridge pickups are winded oppositely to neck pickup and it reduces the noise by creating hum canceling when the output level is balanced.

●Main Specifications
・String Spacing:20mm(eX II J Bass1 Set)/9mm(eX II J5 Bass1 Set)
・Magnet Type:Alnico 5
・Wiring:Single Core Shielding
