Description & Specs

From Form Factor:

The long-awaited updated to our 1000 watt bass amplifier, the Bi1000Di is our next-generation solid-state preamp with a true 1000 watt module, delivering unparalleled tone, sound clarity and response. And as all other Form Factor products, it's made in USA.

With 1000 REAL watts under the hood at 4Ω, the Bi1000Di delivers tone and power that’s an order of magnitude above anything else. This compact, lightweight bass amp delivers a strong, palpable tone, with a transparent pre-amp that lets the instrument be heard, without any added coloration.

As with the new Bi500Di, the Bi1000Di has our state of the art pre-amp, which was designed from the ground up to deliver clarity, response time and incredible tone with complete control over the sound. But now the unit features a Direct Out, Pre and Post EQ (XLR) on the back as well as a headphone jack (1/4") on the front (with the volume controlled by the the Gain pot)

Other updates include more clarity in the pre-amp, improved tone profile as well as various improvements in build and performance, ensuring the unit will deliver the sound you want for decades to come.

The Bi1000Di, as the previous model, allows you hear the instrument the way it was meant to be heard, by magnifying the characteristics the luthier intended the instrument to have.

Hand built in California, featuring genuine Neutrik and Amphenol connectors and aerospace-grade chassis materials, the Bi1000Di is high-end enough to be precious with, but tough enough to withstand  the wear and tear of years of shows and rehearsals.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
