Our BG250 1x15" ultra-light bass combo is the first amp in history with the power to choose and replace on-board effects time and time again. The revolutionary TonePrint® concept offers signature tones created by an ever-expanding list of the world's finest bass players such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Fourplay, Toto), Charles Cave (White Lies), Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stoneage), Gail Ann Dorsey (Lenny Kravitz, David Bowie, Seal), Mark King (Level 42), Roscoe Beck (Leonard Cohen, Robben Ford) and many more – all free of charge. In other words, this loud, light and open-design amp will surpass everything that you have come to expect from a bass combo!
With BG250, you get a staggering 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. The preamp gives you an ultra-fast, integrated 5-string bass tuner, TubeDrive and intelligently contoured Bass Tone controls that create anything from crispy, modern slap tones over grungy, cranked-tube-like tones for classic rock to tight and funky Jaco tones with ease.
Further, an Auxiliary input and headphone output cater for any playback and rehearsal situation, while a balanced XLR output makes recording and live performance a breeze, all of which is underpinned by the cornerstone of great bass amps: superb tone. But coolest of it all is the white TonePrint® knob...
TonePrint is a flexible effect slot that lets you decide exactly which effect the amp should use at any given time. BG250 comes loaded with our legendary SCF Chorus as default, but you can download numerous new bass effects from our website, replacing the chorus with other effects such as Octaver, Compressor, Overdrive, Distortion, Flanger and Vibrato.
To make the deal even sweeter, we had some of the best bass players in the world tailor their own personal effect tones for you to grab, and best of all – these Bass TonePrints are completely free of charge.
To load new types of effects or the artist-made Bass TonePrints, simply hook up your amp to a computer via the included USB cable. Or even cooler: beam them directly from your smartphone straight into BG250 using the mindblowing TonePrint App for iOS and Android. Quite simply, it is
an ever-expanding effects joyride, as new TonePrints will be added constantly in the future. This is merely the beginning.
