OVERVIEW

A seriously powerful amp for serious bassists.

The Acoustic B200H professional head is designed for large club and live applications where it will fill any stage with depth and definition. Used in conjunction with the B115 and/or B410 enclosures, the B200H will easily drive either one or two cabinets in any combination of your choice.

The two bass inputs are designed to accommodate both active and passive bass instruments while the Gain and Volume controls give you complete control over the character of your tone. Increase the gain for some old school rock tones, or lower it and turn up the volume for great clean, classic or funk tones. The preamp includes a very natural and tube-like compression as well as a harmonically rich distortion circuit, which keeps your tone musical”even at high volume levels. The B200H also includes a notch filter to tailor your mids, and a six-band EQ for exact control over every nuance of your bass's tone.

Rear panel features include a parallel Effects Loop, and XLR balanced Line Out with Level Control and Ground Lift. The two speaker output jacks allow you to directly connect to each enclosure (such as the B115 and/or B410) to maximize your tone and power.

The heritage of Acoustic comes through loud and clear in the B200H”a seriously professional stage head for serious bassists.

I use this through an Ashdown 2 x 10, 250W 8 ohm bottom.

Simply, I thinks it's great for what it is----the price to me is unusually low but why I bought it too. I'm so used to OEM's wanting all they can get from me.

Yes, slithgtly underpowered----as rated would be output at 100W in this bottom.

It has to be in the area of 3 o'clock to start pushing high db's, so not a lot of room left (w/Gain at apx 9 o'clock). However, for a "smaller" venue, pending style of music is fine, or as per the line out what you mix it into. As well the Bass used too, needs to be considered----I'm using stock passive J Bass configuration. I don't get the high frequency cutting through as one might with another setup. Again, this is subtle.

So, a negative? --No, not really. But, it would be nice to be 200-300W in this bottom w/that "presence". Not even the next model up accomplishes that it would seem. Again, not a negative, just a fact to be aware of--or adjust your bottom to 4 ohms, consider an Active unit with more, what at sometimes, can seem like shrill high end.

--Give and take, ----I'm glad to own it. I expect it to last a long time.

Well i got my second one of these after getting the first one that blew out 5 minutes within receiving it, and now that one blew out roughly 4 months of getting it. If you want a mediocre amp that breaks really easily this is definitely the right one for you.

Incredible Amp

By Jonathan Wilts

from Canada

Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

I play it through a fender rumble 4x10 with the tweeter off and a fender jazz bass. Incredible.
With the EQ on there you can make any sound you could possibly want.
So far no problems.
For the tone quality this amp is worth 2 or 3 times the price.

Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

Been playing bass for 17 yrs, and giggin steady ( almost every weekend) since 2005. I got this head about 5 yrs ago, and am just writing a review...why u ask? Because it has never let me down. Ive upgraded cabs and tried different heads over the years but always seem to come back to my acoustic head. Dont be fooled by the "200watts", this thing gets loud. At an outdoor venue I play regularly, I have my bass run through a sans amp driver into this head, and have the gain and volume set at about 9oclock - or 25%. Lots of room to go!!!! And it sits atop an Avatar full stack rated at 1400watts. This little amp is no joke, I am amazed at its capabilities for the price.

Sure you could spend well over $1000 and something awesome. But If your looking for a cheap, reliable, great sounding amp.....you just found it. The only thing ive played that came close was a Gallien Kruger 400rb, but for the price...the acoustic cant be beat.

Great, Sturdy Head

By awol45

Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

Overall: Great Value. I bought this a couple of months ago, and it still sounds just as good as the first day. Excellet low-end sound and with the widely adustable eq, you can get the sound you want for many different styles. This is my regular amp, and I travel and gig with it regulary. I haven't had any problems with it, has been very reilable. The only thing its really missing is a dedicted tuner out, but you can over come that with your effects rig. Overall a very solid amp for a Solid State.

Great sound, but...

By ComfortEagle

from Richmond, KY

Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

This thing sounds amazing with the Acoustic cabinets I have. I was seriously impressed with the sound that was coming out of an amp that was so reasonably priced. However, after only 2 practices, where I didn't even get the volume above half on the dial, never got the gain past 1/4 on the dial, and never once clipped the speakers, the amp just died. I was playing on it for about 5 minutes and it just died. No sound. The light was still on, the fan was still running, but no sound. We checked the speaker cabinets and they worked, the cables were all good, and it wasn't my bass. Great thing about this site is that they are sending me a new B200H to replace the defective one. Customer service was great and easy to work with. THIS is why I buy from this company.

Good sound, Low price

By Wiscomark

from Central Wisconsin

Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

I've owned the Acoustic B-200H since April 2009 and have played 20+ gigs. It's paired with 1/15" ported cab. My band mostly plays small to medium-sized clubs, but this head has plenty of power for fair or festival gigs. I have played a variety of basses through the head, they all sound good with the right eq settings. The signal comes out clean even at higher gain/volume settings. I've gotten compliments on my sounds from several fellow bass players. The line out is a great feature. You can run the head through the PA, which allows you keep the stage volume lower. The only real design flaw is the height of the head. When set down on it's end, the head is very tippy. This narrowness also limits the space available on the back panel. The XLR line out is placed so close to edge the back panel that I can't get my thumb between the plug and the enclosure to engage the release on the XLR plug. I end up having to twist my hand into an awkward position so that I can use my index finger. An exta inch or even 1/2 inch would solve this. Pros: Great price/value, clean tweakable sound, plenty of power for bar or hall gigs as well as fairs and festivals. Cons: Narrowness of the head makes it tippy when stood on end and makes proper removal of an XLR plug from the lineout jack unnessesarily difficult. A final note on the quality rating. The first unit I received quit after one week. I literally used it twice for solo practice. On the 3rd attempted use (at band rehearsal) the power light came on but no sound of the head! MF had a very quick turnaround on the replacement head. I didn't have to use my backup head at the next gig...

    purchased as a stupid deal offer on MF and very happy with it. have used it so far on 2 gigs with electric and upright, indoors and out, with a Carvin legacy 410, and will be adding a 118 to see how it all sounds together... thinking about picking up the B600H for my larger venues though right now i am happy with my first Acoustic purchase ever. thanks Musician's Friend...

      got this on a stupid deal of the day for just over 100$. best bang for the buck ! built solid, running a 15 inch 8 ohm bass cabinet and a 15 inch plus horn 8 ohm kustom pa cabinet in parallel. the amp is rated at 200 watts @ 4 ohms so everything matched up well. got the kustom cabinet for 98 at mf also, the 15 inch bass cab used at the "big store". so for 300 i have a stack that rattles the foundation of my neighbors 2 doors down. the 6 band eq lets me customize my sound, from talking heads to sting !. buy this head, make sure you match up your cabinet(s) correctly and you wont be sorry. best deal out there !!!

        Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

        Been playing bass for a while, got this amp and i must say it is fantastic. The booklet that comes with it has a guide to tones you can set with the knobs and it has a good clean sound to it as well. It has a very heavy sound to it and I frequently have my lower frequency up a little for a fatter sound. But i love the amp, I recommend it.

        I'm Lee and I play bass in a rockin Southern Rock band called 'Southern Mischief'. I've played Acoustic amps for years. I had an original, back in the day, Acoustic 450 amp head and an Acoustic 404 transducer, (a 6-10" cabinet).225 watts of good, clean, linear, solid state power Rocked! (the head got stolen from our practice space in Athens, Ga. when I was a student there and was playing in a band then. Go Dawgs!)This 200 watter kills! The tonality available is incredible. It sounds ALMOST as good as my Ampeg SVT 300 watt tube head!For the price, buy it! Good power, great tonality, rockin amp!

        Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

        First off, let me just say if you are thinking about buying this amp... DO IT! This baby can put out some serious juice. At 200 watts, this thing is plenty power for my band (2 distorted guitars,screamed vocals, loud drums, BASS) I paired this thing with the B410 that Acoustic is selling with it. OH MY GOD, when put together, this rig is PUNCHY and it can get pretty darn loud. Its perfect for Post-Hardcore (screamo) music :D and of course it can get those classic bass tones aswell. but I play modern hardcore and let me just tell you, this baby gets the job done!!! AWESOME PURCHASE.

        Acoustic is a great product, but if your going out to play a club, you need at least 350 RMS. I had the Acoustic amp, it was a 450 and sounded great. Years later matched it up with a tranor cabinet, coud'nt beat it for the clubs. The cabinet had 2 15s in it.

        Comments about Acoustic B200H 200w Bass Head:

        i got this head as the result of a morning black friday trip to the guitar center. i play in a thrash/power metal band, so i needed a brighter sound that my 65-watt laney combo wasnt giving me. i had $600 to buy a half stack, and i was deciding between this head and a gallien-krueger backline 600. i went with this one because after i turned the volume 1/3 of the way up on the g-k the sound started distorting. and this amp has more eq options, and the ability to dial in a very tube amp-like sound. the 6-band eq makes it easy to dial in your own personal tone. this head paired up with a gallien-krueger goldline 410 cab is pure love...
