Both feature a built-in tuner that handles up to six strings and a 4-band Intelligent EQ-section designed to cut and boost at specific frequencies.

Risskov, Denmark (October 2, 2014) -- TC Electronic announces the BH550 and BH800 bass amplifiers. TC Electronic's ingenious micro bass head BH250 was a true innovation within the world of bass due to its super portable design, powerful tones and brilliant TonePrint feature.

Now, TC Electronic has decided to up the ante by simply adding more to this already powerful bass amp recipe. With the BH550 and BH800 you get more tonal control, more creative options and last but not least, more power, while still retaining the lightweight design philosophy that makes it a cinch to carry these amps from gig to gig.

The BH550 and BH800 both feature a built-in tuner that handles up to six strings and a 4-band Intelligent EQ-section designed to cut and boost at specific frequencies, making it a breeze to get the sound you're going for. On top of that, TC Electronic has included two switchable TonePrint slots, where you can load signature effects made by some of the world's greatest bass players like Nathan East, Victor Wooten and Duff McKagan. All of these high quality effects are completely free of charge and easy to load via USB, or wirelessly with the free TonePrint App for Android and iOS.

So all you have to decide is if you want to either rule the stage with 550 or 800 watts of pure bass brilliance!

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
