Power to Roll

What good is having a ton of power if you risk your back or need to rent a forklift every time you have a gig? None, that's why we  designed BG250 to have 250 watts of raw power, delivered through our cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology that helps bringing the total weight down to an extremely portable 35 lbs - making it one of the lightest yet loudest combos in its class.

Signature Effects

BG250 sports Bass TonePrint, a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into the TonePrint slot. We've got an ever-expanding roster of the coolest people in bass today give us their signature versions of TC effects.

They're available for free and you can beam them directly to your BG250 via our übercool free smartphone app.

Making a Splash

When we entered the bass market, we made quite a splash. We have a dedicated team of bass players that really want to make a difference so we came up with a bunch of features that made sense to us, like a tuner on board, realistic tube/drive emulation and SpectraComp, our own 'per-string' compression, giving you a combo that makes life as a bassist that much better.

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!

Backstage Pass - All Access

The BG combo series builds on our smash success BH amps and pair portability with playability. Plus a feature set and tonal quality that makes them truly great! 250 Watt of raw power with different speaker configurations for different needs, intelligent EQ section, built-in tuner and TonePrint functionality combined with killer tone. - True greatness comes from the ability to be small, but these combos are the next big thing!

TonePrint

TonePrint is a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into the TonePrint slot. And, since more is more, we added two slots. So, load any of the six effect types, and off you go!


Bass Tuner

The built–in tuner will tune up your bass regardless of whether you play 4, 5 or 6 strings. The four LEDs match a standard 4–string bass, but if you have a low B–string the E and A LEDs will light up together, and if you have a high C–string, look at the D and G LEDs.


Intelligent EQ Section

The Tone Controls are tailored specifically for bass as each knob will boost and cut at different frequencies, making sure that you can dial in any tone you want with ease.


Plug & Play

Use your iPod, phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session, combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone!


Foot Control

With the optional Switch-3 footswitch, you can switch TonePrints, change them on the fly or mute – whatever you need to create your tones.

Effect Types

You can load and swap effect types on the BG250/BH250 via USB or the TonePrint App for smartphones. Once you load an effect of your choice to the amp, you can use the white TonePrint knob to adjust the wet/dry balance - more or less effect so to speak.

Octaver

You will find that our Sub'n'Up Octaver is one of the most flexible octavers you'll ever come across. It can take you up an octave, or down an octave, keep it clean, or add some dirt. And it tracks like no other octaver you have ever tried - all the way down to the low B-string!

Chorus

The Chorus effect is based on our legendary Stereo Chorus Flanger - aka SCF - that set new standards for chorus greatness decades ago and is still going strong. Now, it has been tailored with painstaking attention to detail for one specific purpose: Bass! 

SpectraComp

SpectraComp is the same multi-band compressor that you'll find in the Blacksmith. In essence, you get a 'compressor per string' that is not fooled by the impact of the lower strings only, which is a known problem when using single-band compressors for bass.

Flanger

The BH250 Flanger effect builds on our Vortex Flanger pedal that has amazed and inspired bass players all over the world ever since its release in 2010. 

Bass Drive

Bass Drive will give you the same convincing tube-like character that the TubeTone feature of e.g. RH750 and the Blacksmith is so famous for. On top af that, it can also get downright dirty and add drive, distortion or fuzz for more heavy duties.

Vibrato

The Vibrato effect is similar to our Vibrato Shaker pedal. It may not be the most common effect for bass players, but many have found it great for experimenting with new styles and creative ideas. 

Footswitch 3 - Control Is Everything

You wanna push your gear to peak performance, squeeze every ounce of tone out of it and instantly recall the sounds you need. Switch-3 allows you to do just that with this ultra-robust control unit that is tailormade to give you extended control on your Nova System, Nova Drive, BG250 Bass Combo or BH250 Bass Micro Head.

Nothing but sturdy hard-wearing quality known from other TC products built to endure life on the road. 3-button full-metal casing standard footswitch available for Nova System, giving you remote control of Nova System features such as preset up/down, bypass, effects mute, tap tempo, etc.

When using Switch-3 with BG250 the first switch operates as a mute. The second switches the TubeDrive on and off. The third switches TonePrint on and off.

When using Switch-3 with BH250 the first switch is mute. The second switches TonePrint on and off. The third switches between the two latest TonePrints loaded into the amp, giving you the option of storing and using two TonePrints.
