Guitarists have long been offered almost limitless tonal possibilities from the likes of Line6, while bass players must usually make do with multiFX and stompbox imitations. TC Electronics are doing their bit to change that rapidly, with the release of their new 250W bass head… the BH250.
The compact head (only 4lbs in weight and small enough to fit in your gig bag’s pocket) kicks out 250W of luscious low end, and the TonePrint concept allows you to load unique bass effects in seconds: Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Sub’n’ Up Octaver, SpectraComp or Bass Drive.
You can choose from an ever-expanding list of signature artist TonePrints created by bass masters such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Fourplay, Toto), Charles Cave (White Lies), Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stoneage), Gail Ann Dorsey (Lenny Kravitz, David Bowie, Seal), Mark King (Level 42), Roscoe Beck (Leonard Cohen, Robben Ford) and many more, via either the iPhone/Android app, or TC’s website.
Whether you need a bass head at a rehearsal spaces, at home for practicing, for gigging at small to medium-sized venues or all of the above, BH250 is the perfect, portable solution.
