Art. Where Technology And Design Meet.
Long gone are the days where bassists where the quiet dudes side of stage staring at their shoes pumping roots and fifths. Today's bassist is versatile, expressive, loud, and ready for his place in the spotlight. To perfectly support the needs of our fellow lovers of low-end, we've designed the BH550 to fit the needs of busy bassists on-the-go. That means a lightweight, portable design, a killer EQ section and unlimited tonal versatility through TonePrint - plus an on-board tuner. So just like you, this amp was born to rock!
Tone Is Where The Heart Is
We don't know what magical schools of Bass-Wizardry our engineers attended, but boy do they know tone! And with the BH550's intelligent EQ section we've once again placed ourselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-game. Behind the deceptively simple four dial design lies a frequency range perfectly tuned for bass. So no matter if you like your sound nice and scooped, fat and groovy or filled with high-end sparkle the BH550's tone controls will be sure to cut and boost in all the right places, leaving you sounding your best every single time!
TonePrint Enabled - Signature Bass Effects
Bass TonePrints are free, custom-tuned effects, provided by your favorite bass players! TonePrints give you access to an effect as it is used by the artist - so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by the best bass players in the world.
Oh, this being the 21st century and all, we've made a TonePrint App which allows you to beam TonePrints from your phone to your TonePrint-enabled pedal or amp. Easy, fast and totally free of charge!
The BH550’s ultra-precise on-board 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. And with a frequency range that supports up to six-string basses, you can be sure that your low-notes will always be in tune!
TonePrint: Your Vision, Your Sound
BH550 features a wide range of TonePrint effects, from Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver to our custom SpectraComp & BassDrive and they all sound killer! We even have Combined TonePrints that let you enjoy the power of two TonePrints in one!
The intelligent EQ section is designed to cut and boost at different frequencies. Tailored specifically for bass for ultra-precise tonal shaping.
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 chose post to get the flavor of the amp.
Late Night Jammin’
If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it grooving, and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.
