Yorkville have been building superb Bass Guitar Amplifiers since 1963. Haven’t heard of Yorkville? . . . we think you need to get out more!
Handmade in Canada, the Yorkville XS400TCE is a powerful 400 watt Bass Combo Amplifier with a pair pf custom designed 10″ Eminence Speakers and a 70 watt Motorola Tweeter. Yorkville were one of the first companies to include a 12AX7A preamp tube at the input stage of their Bass Amps and the XS400TCE features this innovation.
Also included is a separate parallel tube overdrive circuit and innovative ”wet / dry” balance control that allows the player to set the perfect blend of overdriven signal to clean bass tone. In short you can add as much growl or as little ‘tube warmth’ to your overall bass sound as you need, while maintaining a clean tone underneath it all to maintain definition and clarity. A switchable limiter and a compressor circuit with user definable threshold control have been added to the tube input circuit as well.
A rotary five-band EQ and semi-parametric EQ with a user definable frequency offer exceptional and intuitive tonal control. The XS400TCE also has a continuously variable ‘Scoop’ control rather than just a ‘Contour” switch. The Scoop function sweeps from a flat frequency response to a mid-frequency dip at 300 Hz. As you increase beyond the halfway point on the control you begin to boost both the top end and bottom end to your tone, in addition to further reducing the midrange level. The result is a tone that is tight, punchy and very musical.
Other cool features include a front panel wet/dry control for the effects return, footswitchable tube overdrive, footswitchable effects return and a pre/post selectable XLR balanced Tube DI output. Speakon™ and 6.3mm (1/4″) extension speaker outputs have been added for the addition of an external bass cabinet.
A feature unique to the XS400 Bassmaster Series is the ”Tweeter Auto Mute” switch located on the rear panel. Normally the tweeter will automatically shut off when the Tube Drive is activated. This removes the harshness in the higher frequency range typical of an overdriven sound going through a tweeter. If you prefer the tweeter to be active in the overdrive mode, simply press the switch to disengage the mute feature.
A front panel tuner/mute switch silences the signal to the amplifier (and DI output) for silent tuning with the front panel mounted 6.3mm (1/4″) tuner out jack.
The XS400TCE is covered in rugged and road ready Ozite black carpet.
