Musikmesse 2010: TC Electronic releases two new bass combo amp
At Musikmesse 2010, TC Electronic, the amp and effect manufacturer, has launched two new bass combo amps, the BG500 115 and BG500 210.
In short, 500 Watts of raw power has been combined with custom-built Eminence drivers, amazing tone shaping tools and an impressive list of ground-breaking features.
BG500 shares many of the tools that have made the revolutionary RH450 bass amp such a success.
BG500 features the incredible SpectraComp compressor from RH450 that allows 'per string' compression that evens out the compression across all strings.
This creates a much more musical sounding result than any conventional single-band compressor is capable of.
BG500's TubeTone effect has also been taken directly from the RH450 amp, and it doesn't just replicate a tube sound using one small preamp tube.
It emulates the characteristics of a tube preamp and true tube power amp section to deliver an unrivalled full tube sound.
Combined with stunning tone shaping tools, these presets allow bass players to create the tones they need and then switch between them instantly and seamlessly.
For quick and instant tuning, BG500 also features a fully integrated bass tuner that automatically mutes when activated, allowing for swift, silenced tuning.
Furthermore, BG500 introduces the innovative TweeterTone control that allows front panel Tweeter control, as well as two new 'Contour' shapes that create warm and smooth tones instantaneously.
Both combos are fitted with high quality Eminence drivers - the BG500 115 has a 15" driver and 1" tweeter, while BG500 210 features 2 x 10" drivers plus a 1" tweeter.
Quite simply, TC Electronic's BG500 bass combos offer more power, tone and bass shaping tools than any other combo at this price point. It's time to take your tone above and beyond the conventional.Posted on 24 Mar 2010 08:41 to category : Instruments News
