The TC Electronic Staccato'51 Bass Amp Head is in a collaborative effort between TC Electronics and famed Tower of Power bassists, Rocco Prestia. The amp is rated at 450W, features Class D amplifier technology and reproduces electric bass with pristine detail and tone. TC Electronic's SpectraComp technology virtually applies just the right amount of punch and compression across all strings. TubeTone emulates every characteristic of a tube pre-amp and power-amp to deliver the full tube sound. Additional features include EQ controls and balanced output.

Flexible Tone Control
Straightforward controls like you know them from traditional amps. Voiced by Rocco Prestia to give you plenty of tweaking options to nail the perfect tone. Chances are that this is all you're ever gonna need. However, if you're not fully satisfied with the default frequency areas, fear not - you have the option to change the focus of each of the tone controls through semi parametric access through the shift button.
TubeTone
Most transistor designs have tried to replicate the tube sound using one small pre-amp tube, but they generally fail as they don't take into account the crucial characteristics of the full pre-amp and power amp sections - both of which are essential to the sound. TubeTone emulates every characteristic to deliver the full tube sound.
Spectra Comp
Most bass players know that integrated compressors generally don't sound that good. A regular compressor tends to be dominated by the lower string, but SpectraComp technology allows virtually 'per string' compression that evens out the compression across all strings.
3 User Memories
With the 3 user memories on Staccato'51 you can easily switch between, for example, your 4- and 5-string basses, or your Rickenbacker and Fender Jazz. Just plug in the bass and use the 'car radio' style Store & Recall controls to easily switch between presets for your chosen model. There are three bass user memories, remote control access and visual indicators for Mute and the Tuner.

Integrated Chromatic Tuner
Every bass player needs a tuner. Simply push the Mute button to get a full-resolution tuner 'light ring' to help you tune your instrument quickly and accurately. You can also use the RC4 for easy remote access to this functionality.
Rehearsal Input
Playing any instrument on its own can be a little dull, but everyone needs time to practice, which is why Staccato'51 has rehearsal inputs. This rear panel-mounted feature allows you to plug in your iPod, phone, computer or MP3 player via the supplied mini-jack to RCA cable adapter for easy practicing and playing along with recorded music.
World Ready Power Supply
The ultimate in convenience for the traveling musician. The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier for anyone on the road as there's no complicated fuse changing - just plug and play!
Integrated Linedriver
Quality can vary wildly with built-in linedrivers, but Staccato'51's linedriver is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum. And don't worry about long cable runs - Staccato'51 will draw at least 100m of cable with zero drop in audio quality. Even though the integrated linedriver in Staccato'51 does not need 48v phantom to operate, it does not get harmed either if your sound engineer accidently leaves it on.
