Amazing sounds from this little box!
James9481, 20.03.2015
Fast free delivery once again from Thomann, excellent service!
This little amp says 550 watts on the label and it sure delivers that promise big time.
The array of sounds available from the 4 knobs are amazing.
Then there's the Toneprint feature. Download chorus, drive compressors..all for free!
Seriously lightweight too.
If you're thinking of buying one of these amps, just do it, they are worth every penny!

Stunning!
14.12.2016
Amazing little bass amp! I gig every weekend (so it has to be reliable), playing classic rock covers and some original material. We are LOUD. The BH550 drives my two Hartke cabs (VX410 plus VX115) easily, with headroom to spare, and the sound is wonderful! Loads of power, depth, clarity, everything you want from a bass amp. The TonePrint is useful, effective, and easy to use, and the on-board tuner is perfectly adequate for live performance. I use a dedicated tuner in the studio and for setups, but for gigging the amp tuner is fine. Happy to recommend!

Love this amp
17.07.2015
I was recently at a GTG and we had an amp shootout with amps like Mesa Boogie, Glockenklang, Ampeg, Ashdown, Bergantino, Genz Benz ... etc
The TC Electronic was a standout!
Highly recommend this amp! Exceptional features. Especially love the built in tuner, mute switch, balanced DI out, two tone prints and separate gain and volume controls. Very practical!

Rapport poids/puissance/son au top

Un ampli léger avec LE son, des réglages fins et simples, un accordeur intégré et deux effets modifiables à volonté. Voilà un ampli qui a vraiment tout pour plaire.
