BASTL Instruments BESTIE

Bastl brings us the Bestie, a spiritual successor to their Dude mixer, but this time with a built-in feedback loop and, surely to the delight of many, five channels of stereo operation. Housed in a metal casing, the Bestie is ready for touring, live performance, and with the option to be battery powered, this is one of the best options for recording your outdoor sessions. With the same saturated sound that made the Dude beloved, the Bestie can drive your signal hard and to take that one step further, leave the third channel open and your entire mix will feedback into itself for wild noisy sounds.

In fact, you don't even need to plug any input into the Bestie: create multiple feedback loops with external effects and use the third channel level control to bring in self-oscillating sounds. While it's easy to get over-saturated sounds, the Bestie is also equipped with low-noise preamps letting you use this as a wonderful standard mixer with ease. Each channel can use stereo inputs with channels 1 and 5 having two mono 3.5mm TS inputs and the other using 3.5mm TRS inputs. Along with that, a dedicated headphone output with a pre/post mute option lets you use this as a great live mixer with a cue output if desired. Bastl's Bestie might become your next bestie with its compact size, great size, and creative options.
