TC Electronic BH550 550-Watt Bass Head w/ Tone Print
Bass rigs used to be the hardest part of getting a band to and from a gig. Once upon a time, 300-watt all tube bass heads with 8 x 10 cabinets ensured that whether or not your bass player was in good playing shape, he or she was in good physical shape. TC Electronic's BH550 delivers 500 watts in a package that weighs only 9 lbs.
TonePrint: Creativity At The Core
With the innovative TonePrint technology, if you need a swirling vintage flanger or a TubeDrive for your next rock gig, a compressor or a chorus when you play with your funk band, you simply load them into BH550. TonePrint means signature effects made by the most awesome bass players around, like Victor Wooten, Duff McKagan, Richard Bona, Nathan East and many more. These TonePrints are available for free - straight from your smartphone - and with 2 switchable TonePrint slots available, the tonal possibilities are virtually endless. With its lightweight, portable design, Intelligent EQ section, ultra-precise on-board tuner and unlimited tonal versatility through TonePrint, the BH550 is a tool that will help you to define and perfect your sound and your unique approach to bass.
With the BH550's intelligent EQ section, TC Electronics have established themselves as being ahead of the tone-tailoring curve. Behind the deceptively simple four-dial design lies a frequency range perfectly tuned for bass. Whether you like your sound scooped, fat and groovy or filled with high-end sparkle, the BH550's tone controls will cut and boost in all the right places, leaving you sounding your best every time.
The BH550's ultra-precise onboard tuner is there when you need it. It's always on, so you constantly have a clear read of whether you're in tune or not. With a frequency range that supports up to six-string basses, you can be sure that your low-notes will always be in tune.
Use the balanced output to send a signal to a PA or a sound engineer when playing live, or use it as a high-quality bass preamp in the studio when recording, taking advantage of the tone controls and TonePrint features. Choose between sending a pre signal for a completely clean and direct sound or choose post to get the flavor of the amp.
