The New TC Electronic BH250 delivers Toneprint versatility in a ludicrously small and light bass amp head
The TC Electronic BH250 bass amp head continues the integration of its groundbreaking Toneprint technology into its amp range, the first of these being the BG250 combo. This new model, however, packs the technology into a 250-Watt bass amp head that weighs a mere 1.8kg. With classic TC tone and reliability, combined with Toneprint flexibility, 250 Watts of power in such a portable box, this could be a great, do-it-all solution for the bassist.
Like the Tardis, it’s big on the inside…
The TC Electronic BH250 measures just 8.7” x 2.5” x 9.1”, and at 1.8kg is small and light enough to fit in a rucksack or even pocket of a gigbag. Despite this, in what seems like another twist of Nordic magic, the Danish company has made the BH250 capable of delivering a whopping 250-Watts of power. This is delivered via a 4-Ohm Speakon output.
If you haven’t seen the Toneprint technology yet, well, this also akin to some sort of Nordic Witchcraft. It allows TC Electronic effects to be ‘beamed’ to the unit via an iPhone or Android phone (or via the USB connection from a host computer). This means that the onboard effects can be switched in seconds via the Toneprint app. The effects compatible with this unit are Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver, SpectraComp and BassDrive. In addition, Toneprint settings created by TC artists are available.
A built in bass tuner, for 4, 5 or 6 string basses adds further convenience to the TC Electronic BH250, and it shares the intelligently contoured tone controls of the BG250. These cut and boost to effectively make more harmonic ‘space’ when tweaking tone. In a nutshell, the result is a far more ‘musical’ EQ that allows you to get the tone you want without making things ‘muddy’.
Here are the BH250 ‘s Key Features:
- Ultra compact and light – Weighs just 1.8kg, and small enough to fit in a gig bag
- Toneprint technology – ‘beam’ new effects, and signature tones via an iPhone or Android phone
- Variety of Toneprint effects - Flanger, BassDrive, SpectraComp, Chorus and Octaver
- Built in tuner – for 4, 5, and 6 string basses
- Contoured EQ
With specifications and features like this, the TC Electronic BH250 will appeal to a whole range of players. As a main bass amp, it is light, powerful, versatile and incredibly convenient and crucially, it sounds great. However, for rehearsals, it’s easily transportable, and could be the ideal tool for the job. It’s perfect as a backup- it’s affordable (SSP is currently projected as £245 – less than a pound per Watt!) and could be slipped into a gigbag. It’s a very versatile little unit, to be sure…
The TC Electronic BH250 is due to arrive in September. If you would like to pre-order, call our stores or customer service team (01925 58242).
