TC Electronic 990910011 Overview

The BH550 Bass Amplifier with TonePrint and Tuner from TC Electronic is a 550W bass amplifier designed with a variety of tonal options and downloadable effects via TC Electronic's TonePrint program. Using the included USB cable, you can download a variety of effects compiled from a list of professional bassists. This bass amp can store two independent Tone-Prints, each with an independent slot switch and control knob. The BH550's on-board tuner is on as long as the amp is connected to a power supply, and its frequency response can support up to six string basses. The EQ section is designed to cut and boost at different frequencies for precise tonal shaping.

The BH550 features a few different output options including a balanced XLR for going direct to a PA system or recording console as well as a Speakon output for powering a speaker cabinet. The 1/8" headphone jack allows you to play without having to use a speaker cabinet or PA. You can also connect a Switch-3 remote control footswitch (not included) to control the TonePrints and mute the amplifier.
