The TC Electronics ComboClassic Bass Amp encloses its famed RH450 Bass Amp Head into a durable speaker cabinet with dual 10" Eminence drivers and 1" tweeter for full bass response with plenty of punch and clarity. Bass players can expect all the clean sound of the RH450, and of course the TubeTone tube emulation and SpectraComp dynamic compression are also present. Additional features include tuner output, effect loop connection and portable construction.
Vintage Tone Control
These four straight forward Vintage tone controls are carefully designed to grab your bass sound where it makes a difference. With great inspiration from a range of classic bass amp designs, the Vintage Tone control section is all you an wish for in simplicity and great sound.
TubeTone emulates all characteristics of both the pre- and power amp to deliver the full tube sound. Combo450 uses the TubeTone to add the growl when really diggin' in.
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 Classic450's SpectraComp technology allows virtually 'per string' compression that evens out the compression across all strings.
Wide Range Instrument Input
Classic450 accepts any bass with any pickup system. The gain range on Classic450's input stage is wide enough to cover both Active and Passive pickup instruments.
Quality can vary wildly with built-in linedrivers, but Classic450'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 - Classic450 will draw at least 100m of cable with no drop in audio quality. The line driver output features a pre/post switch that allows you to select where the audio tap is placed; before or after the pre-amp section.
Output and Linedriver Mute
The Mute switch allows you to instantly silence your amp while tuning, changing instruments or simply taking a break.
Connect your tuner and tune up. The Tuner out always feeds signal to your tuner even when the front panel mute switch shuts off the speaker and linedriver output. This allows you to tune up in silence.
The effects loop allows you to insert effects of your choice between the Pre amp and power amp section. The effects loop also allows you to link two amps together using the Pre-amp out and Power amp in connectors.
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 the musician on the road as there's no complicated fuse changing - just plug and play!
Active Power Management
The high power output level of Classic450 is accomplished by using Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronic's Active Power Management™. APM effectively means that the amp behaves very much like a tube amp when getting close to maximum performance by optimizing the power impact, contrary to the hard clipping tendencies of transistor amps and most other Class D.
The versatility of Classic450 wouldn't really make sense if it came in an oversized, bulky box. Its stylish design with the smooth grab'n'go handle just spells out portability. It sets your creativity free and screams for you to bring it along wherever your bass talent takes you. Bring your own sound for whatever show or studio session you're involved in or jam out on the tour bus, at the hotel room, at home - and hey, it works for rehearsals too.
