BG250-112 Demo


All of our BG250 combos share the same fundamental tone, yet they also sound unique. Subtle details and the fact that you can customize the amps with TonePrint effects and settings makes sure that you will always be able to get the sound you are looking for no matter which BG250 you choose.

  • Ultra-light, Ultra-powerful
  • Two TonePrint Slots
  • Intelligent Tone Shaping Tools
  • Built-in Tuner for 4, 5 and 6 String Basses. 

BG250-112 gives you the best from both worlds. Tight and powerful sound with a strong presence in the mids. Make it bassy and old school, or modern and crisp. The choice is yours!

It’s light yet super powerful, features intelligent tone shaping tools and has an onboard tuner for 4, 5 and 6 string basses.

Add to that, the ultimate effects solution: Dual TonePrint! You can swap effect types on the fly and you even get custom TonePrints created by some of the greatest bass players totally free of charge.

Power to Roll

What good is having a ton of power if you risk your back or need to rent a forklift every time you have a gig? None, that’s why we  designed BG250 to have 250 watts of raw power, delivered through our cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology that helps bringing the total weight down to an extremely portable 35 lbs – making it one of the lightest yet loudest combos in its class.

Dual Signature Effects

BG250 sports two TonePrint slots that lets you load signature effects into the amp. We’ve got an ever-expanding roster of the coolest people in bass today give us their signature versions of TC effects.

They’re available for free and you can beam them directly to your BG250 via our übercool free smartphone app.

Making a Splash

When we entered the bass market, we made quite a splash. We have a dedicated team of bass players that really want to make a difference so we came up with a bunch of features that made sense to us, like a tuner on board, realistic tube/drive emulation and SpectraComp, our own ‘per-string’ compression, giving you a combo that makes life as a bassist that much better.

TonePrint® Enabled – Signature Bass Effects

Bass TonePrints are free, custom-tuned effects, provided by your favorite bass players! TonePrints give you access to an effect as it is used by the artist – so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by the best bass players in the world.

Oh, this being the 21st century and all, we’ve made a TonePrint App which allows you to beam TonePrints from your phone to your TonePrint-enabled pedal or amp. Easy, fast and totally free of charge!

Backstage Pass – All Access

The BG combo series builds on our smash success BH amps and pair portability with playability. Plus a feature set and tonal quality that makes them truly great! 250 Watt of raw power with different speaker configurations for different needs, intelligent EQ section, built-in tuner and TonePrint functionality combined with killer tone. – True greatness comes from the ability to be small, but these combos are the next big thing!


TonePrint is a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into the TonePrint slot. And, since more is more, we added two slots. So, load any of the six effect types, and off you go!

Bass Tuner

The built–in tuner will tune up your bass regardless of whether you play 4, 5 or 6 strings. The four LEDs match a standard 4–string bass, but if you have a low B–string the E and A LEDs will light up together, and if you have a high C–string, look at the D and G LEDs.

Intelligent EQ Section

The Tone Controls are tailored specifically for bass as each knob will boost and cut at different frequencies, making sure that you can dial in any tone you want with ease.

Plug & Play

Use your iPod, phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session, combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone!

Foot Control

With the optional Switch-3 footswitch, you can switch TonePrints, change them on the fly or mute – whatever you need to create your tones.
