TC Electronic BH250 Overview
The TC Electronic BH250 Bass Head is a 250 Watt 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 and install a variety of effects tailored for the BH250 not only by TC Electronic but from a list of professional bassists. The TonePrint control on the front panel works as a blend knob, increasing or decreasing the amount of the given installed effect. The BH250's tone controls allow it to cut and boost at different frequencies on each of its bass, middle, and treble control knobs.
The BH250 provides 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. Its lightweight, 4 lb body and built in 4, 5, and 6 string bass tuner were designed with portability in mind for the gigging musician.
