TC Electronic BG250-208

The BG250-208 houses the miniscule BG250H amplifier in a vertical 2x8 "cabinet, the small BG has a gain switch for active / passive instruments, and a Tone Print control, although two Tone Prints are stored, you can only use one. With the optional footswitch you can call the second one.

The amp has a built-in tuner that can handle the range of a typical 6-string bass. A pre / post EQ balanced line out via XLR, a mute switch, and a stereo mini-jack aux input for iPods and the like, and a stereo headphone-out jack for quiet practice. There is a USB port to connect the BG250 to a computer for loading and editing Tone Prints, and a footswitch pedal input to cover the mute and Tone Print functions. The front-ported cab has TC custom drivers and is covered with black Tolex, and surprising light.

 

TC Tone Print

TonePrintTC's Tone Print concept is a smart integration of software and hardware signal processing, which enables the user to easily use presets from a rapidly growing library. The BG series can load a variety of different effects such as Bass Drive, Chorus, Flange, Octaver, SpectraComp, and Vibrato via the USB port, or via the free app. The library can be reached via the app (even if you do not have a Wi-Fi zone or mobile internet connection) and is sent by the external speaker of your phone to your bass pickup. The phone sends a pulse wave, such as an old-fashioned modem, and the LEDs flash to confirm that the Tone Print has been loaded. A striking idea, but it works! You can save your preferences so you can easily switch from Tone Prints.
