A loud, light and open design combo amp that takes bass amps to a whole new level from TC Electronic.
The BG250 1x15 ultra light bass combo amp is not only the entry into TC Electronic’s legendary Bass Amp 2.0 concept, but is also the worlds’ first bass amp allowing you to choose your own on-board effect, again and again through the amazing TonePrint® concept – in short this loud, light and open design combo amp takes bass amps to a whole new level.
The BG250 comes piled high with 250 watts of power, delivered through TC Electronic’s top notch lightweight class D amp technology allowing a total weight of only 35lbs, making it one of the loudest and lightest combo amps in its class. The preamp features an ultrafast integrated 5 string bass tuner, TubeDrive, Intelligent contoured Bass Tone controls, as well as Auxiliary input and headphone output for playback and rehearsal situations, balanced XLR out for recording or live performance, and most importantly superb bass tone.
TonePrint® is a flexible effects section that allows you to decide exactly what effect you want in your amp at any given time.
BG250 comes loaded with TC Electronic’s infamous SCF chorus as the default effect. However, from TC Electronic’s website you can download numerous new bass effects for your amp, replacing the default chorus, with effects such as Octaver, Compressor, Overdrive & distortion, Flanger and Vibrato. Not to mention some of the best bass players in the world tailor their own personal effects tones for you to grab, all free of charge! Simply hook your amp up to your computer via the included USB cable, or even better. Beam your new effect or artist tone from your smartphone straight into your BG250 using the mind blowing TonePrint iOS and Android app.
The tone controls of BG250 features an intelligent integrated bass contour design, ensuring that each of the three tone controls always work optimally to help you sculpt your bass tone. Each control adapts their attack frequency, bandwidth and filter type depending on how you tweak the controls, always supplying meaningful bass tone responses. TubeDrive is not simply the average single stage clipping drive that is found on most bass amps. TubeDrive is a full recreation of the warm tube sound achieved only through the design of a pre-amp and power amp tube simulation stage. An optional Switch-3 foot pedal allows for remote enable/disable of the Mute function, TubeDrive and of course the TonePrint section. An integrated bass tuner allows for silenced tuning while the BG250 is muted and even features tuning during performance.
