Where Technology and Design Meet you will find ART
Once upon a time, Bass players were the quiet dudes at the back of the stage staring at their shoes pumping roots and fifths. Today’s bassist is still a key practitioner of the groove – only with added versatility, expressiveness, presence and completely ready for their place in the spotlight. To perfectly support the needs of the lovers of all things low-end, TC Electronic 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 the TC-E engineers attended, but by crikey, do they know tone! The BH550’s intelligent EQ section has once again placed this amp 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 . . . time after time.
You can load and swap effect types on your BH550 bass amp 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.
The Sub’n’Up Octaver is one of the most flexible octavers we have experienced at scmusic. Take it up an octave, 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!
SpectraComp is the same multi-band compressor that you’ll find in the TC Electronic Blacksmith. Essentially, SpectraComp gives you a ‘compressor per string’ that is not fooled by the impact of the lower strings only – a well known problem when using single-band compressors for bass.
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. If you like some grit in your groove, it can also get downright dirty and add drive, distortion or fuzz for more heavy duties.
The Chorus effect is based on the legendary TC Electronic 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!
The Flanger effect builds on the Vortex Flanger pedal that has, and continues to amaze and inspire bass players all over the world since its release back in 2010.
The Vibrato effect is similar to the TC-E 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. The key is not to be afraid . . .
