  • Dual TonePrint Enabled

BG250-115 also houses the ultimate effects solution: TonePrint! You can swap effect types on the fly via your smartphone and you even get custom TonePrints created by some of the greatest bass players out there – totally free of charge. 

Signature Effects. For Free

BG250-115 sports Bass TonePrint, a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into a TonePrint slot. And since more is more, we’ve included two slots. So load any of the Bass TonePrints and off you go! You can switch between them with the optional Switch-3 footswitch; change them on the fly or mute – whatever you need to create your tone.

We’ve got an ever-expanding roster of the coolest people in bass today that have given us their signature versions of TC effects, so there’s bound to be a sound that inspires you!

Oh, and if you want to use some of the slots for a bit (or a lot) of dirt – go for it! They accept our BassDrive TonePrints as well, which range from TubeDrive – ported from the RH750 – to the crushing ‘The Beast’ TonePrint. Or maybe you want SpectraComp, our amazing world-class per string compression TonePrint specifically designed for bass players. This allows you to shape your sound, create your tone and basically take the TC Electronic Bass TonePrint arsenal wherever you need it to go.

They’re all available for free and you can beam them directly to your BG250 via  our übercool free smartphone app or via theTC Electronic website if you want to use a computer.

Power That Moves

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? NO good at all, that’s why we designed BG250-115 to have 250 watts of raw power, delivered through our cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology. This helps bring the total weight down to an extremely portable 39 lbs/17.7kg – making it one of the lightest yet loudest combos in its class. This combo has a warm, powerful and fat sound but never loses the high mids or treble frequencies.

Making a Splash

There’s no doubt our bass amps tick all the right boxes when it comes to help inspire bassists. We are a dedicated team of bass players who really want to make a difference, so we came up with a bunch of features that really make sense. Some of these extra features include an onboard tuner, TonePrint functionality and an Intelligent EQ Section, giving you a combo that makes life as a bassist much better.

Fine-tuning Bass

BG250-115 has a built-in tuner. How bleeping smart is that? Tune up and start your jam or practice session with the confidence your bass is perfectly in tune.

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

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.
