I've always played through 15" speakers and had already decided on an amp that had a 15" speaker. As I walked past the BG250-112, I decided to try it out even though I wouldn't think of using a 12" speaker.
After trying it out, I bought it. After gigging with it, it's the best amp I've used in a long time. Being a 15" speaker guy my whole life, I found that the BG250-112 gave a batter balance of bass, mid, and high than the 15. With 250 watts, it's more than enough power as an instrument monitor. A DI provides the pre or post signal to the sound system with quite an incredible tone.
I play blues, old school funk, jazz, and rock and have played small and med/large rooms with it achieving great tone and having enough power.
It's eq system is unique and offers great flexibility in achieving a great tone, however you need to know and understand the eq on your bass in relation to the eq that you are adjusting on the amp. Also, the TonePrint function is absolutely awesome!
So, if you are looking for an amp that can give a good balance of the bass, mid, and high frequency spectrum, with some power behind it, great eq system, and the awesome TonePrint function – then this is the amp for you!

When mine arrived right out of the box the speaker voice coil was rubbing and I had to send it back. The one I tested at a local store was great but MF had better price. I have other top end amps and wanted light weight portable amp for smaller gigs, I may or may order it again as now I'm a little worry of TC quality control.

Not sure of the over all construction as for ware and tare but only time would tell. I wish they used recessed steal handle instead of cheap vinyl one which would be better for transporting, but to keep the cost down is more likely why they went that route. The tone is easy to dial in and the effects are great.

    Comments about TC Electronic BG250-112 250W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp with 2 TonePrint Slots:

    This is a surprisingly lightweight and loud amp for a very good price. It was a open box scratch and dent at a substantial discount from the original price. There were no significant signs of use, and it functions perfectly. Tone Print function is simple to use and really works. That's coming from a guy who found the Peavey VIP and a Fender Modeling amp far to complicated, cumbersome and frustrating. The amp has a built in direct box, usable,tone shaping ( even without the Tone Prints), a good sounding speaker and weighs about 35 lbs! It's a very usable , smartly designed bass combo as long as you don't need mega wattage.

      Comments about TC Electronic BG250-112 250W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp with 2 TonePrint Slots:

      I needed a good, pro quality amp for my upright. I went into a local GC that had most bass amp brands and sizes available (ampeg, markbass, gk, fender, acoustic, etc..). I set up about 10-12 feet away from the amps and tried all the amps they had 1x10 1x12 1x15. Of all the amps I tried this BG 250 112 had the most natural, good sound, and it put the low end out in the room--unlike the others that sounded beefy when near them but they didn't project the lows 10 feet away. This amp has a good consistent sound near and far from the amp, and this sold me as I came in to purchase the best amp regardless of cost. I also discovered that this amp is equally as good for electric bass, too. I use it for regular club gigs on electric with no lack of volume. A surprisingly good amp at a good price.

          Comments about TC Electronic BG250-112 250W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp with 2 TonePrint Slots:

          This amp is extremely versatile without going too overboard with bells and whistles or size. It is small enough to use for practicing, but can shake the house down too. The Auxiliary input makes jamming with tunes/backing tracks, etc. straightforward (it's a simple thing ALL combo amps should have these days, but don't). It's big enough with enough output to gig with. The toneprint technology really adds some depth to the sound. Tuner response is fast, the cabinet is substantially lighter weight than the typical chip-board constructions. This amp is a great value.

              This amp is great for the price.I was blown away by how much power this amp has. My guitarist and drummer told me to turn down at an outdoor gig. So I definitely recommend this amp because it has great tone, effects, portability and an awesome price (I actually got them to lower it to 300). If you don't get this one, I recommend getting an amp from this company.

                Great sounding portable powerful rig. The tone print is super cool and easy to use . Would be a great bass rig even without the tone print! Went from carrying around rack mount rig with 410 cab. I don't miss for a second! Highly recommend ! All you should ever need! Super great value!

                  I tried one at my local guitar center, and bought one on the spot. That TonePrint thing they have is really cool - I love trying different styles and sounds when I plug in at home. I havent really tried any at gigs or anything, but I hope to get there soon. Nice sounds, it weighed next to nothing and I really like the EQ on this thing.

                    This is one very versatile combo. It works excellent for both rehearsal and gigs.
                    I love the way the combo can be "pushed" without the harsh clipping you typically find in other bass amplifiers. And the TonePrint thing is a killer feature!!
                    I would highly recommend this TC product
