Los Angeles, CA (June 1, 2017) -- Trickfish Amplification is now fulfilling orders for the Bullhead.5K bass amplifier which debuted at Winter NAMM 2107. Anticipation for the lower priced head has been growing as the amplifier sets a new performance standard in affordable bass amplification.

Featuring the acclaimed Mike Pope low noise preamp integrated with a tour proven, 500W @ 8Ohm/ 700W @ 4Ohm Class D power amplifier, the BH.5K offers all of the professional features and performance expected of a Trickfish product at a street price of just $799.00. Housed in a robust aluminum chassis, the powerful head offers a wide variety of tone-shaping capabilities via a 4-band EQ with 8 frequency select options.

Other features include:

  • Selectable input sensitivity
  • Aux input
  • Pre/Post Balanced DI Output
  • Parallel EFX loop
  • Amp mute
  • Convection cooling
  • Neutrik Speakon combi-connector

Weighing in at a paltry 6lbs, the BH.5K also sports classic “chickenhead knobs” for easy, fast adjustments and the rack-mountable chassis is powder coated in a durable, Deep Sea Blue matte finish.

“Philosophically we are about inclusion, participation and the proliferation of great music. We want every player, regardless of income, to have a sound of which they can be proud. And this year we set out to build something that any aspiring, committed musician could buy – not just an elite few. The Point 5 was a tremendous engineering challenge and the team rallied to create what I feel is a masterpiece product that is affordable for a majority of bassists’ worldwide.” states Trickfish founder Richard Ruse. “We embarked on an important mission to build a reasonably priced amp that any professional could count on to deliver the dynamics, tone-shaping capability and the power they may need to sound and play their best. And this amp actually gets a little gnarly and gritty when you push it hard – something you don’t get with the BH1K so, if you’re a Rock, Blues, R&B, pop, jazz kind of player you’ll find that edginess appealing…” says Ruse.
