Compact combo with big punch and features.

The TC Electronic BG250-115 bass combo amp took the power and tone that made the Bass Amp 2.0 line so popular, and then loaded it up with top-notch features. The 2x10” 250W combo comes equipped with a built-in tuner, 3-band intelligent EQ and, of course, TC Electronic’s trademark TonePrint system that allows users to beam professionally made effects and tones from their smartphones directly to the BG250-210, controllable with an optional footswitch.

Other features include six effects types — chorus, flanger, vibrato octave, SpectraComp and Bass Drive — a headphone output (which mutes the speaker), auxiliary input to play along with your favorite tunes, USB mini port, a mute button for quiet tuning, and a balanced XLR output for direct recording in the studio or a clean feed to the mixer for live playing.

    Comments about TC Electronic BG250-115 250W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp with 2 TonePrint Slots:

    This is an awesome amp that is very portable and has great tone. Mine just died two weeks outside the warranty period, having been out of my home on only two occasions. TC Electronics has offered to repair it if I pay for shipping to New York and pay for the repairs. I will see whether anyone locally can fix it but I wouldn't want to depend on it for a gig at this point.

      The tone print system is a trip. You have to fool around with it a bit but it works well.I wish it came with a footswitch. They give you a footswitch decal to put on the device, but no footswitch is included? I put additional damping material inside the cabinet. It sounded to "woody" without it.

        I play in a three-piece funk band that necessitates some serious bottom end thump.

        I think that it is funny how the demo vids are done by bassists who play a thousand notes a minute and...eh-hem, chords. Who the heck plays that in a band?! Just get in sync with your drummer and carry the song, man.

        This is a powerful amp with LOTS of bottom end. I use it for bar gigs, never turning it up past 10:00 and it sounds great. Other reviewers have poo-pooed the tuner, but it works just fine and is handy.

        The first thing I did was to ditch the chorus and download the compressor from the website. 'Lots of thump! The tolex isn't bomb-proof so my wife sewed a cover for it. I would recommend one if you are toting it around.

        I am very happy with this amp. Did I mention that it is light?

          Comments about TC Electronic BG250-115 250W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp with 2 TonePrint Slots:

          this amp is exceptional i replaced a 100 watt acoustic combo and what an upgrade it is. Great warm tone at any setting with any bass regardless of active or passive pickups. The cleans are amazing and it has a ton of headroom (it can be really loud) built in tube drive gives a nice ampeg style growl. The toneprint is cool to add different effects on the fly (i normally just use the chorus though it is really good) but even without that the amp is worth every penny. The amp has been bullet proof for almost a year now with me using it in my band and my son's bass player using it in their pop punk and hard core bands. It just right for me to use for small to medium sized gigs and as a monitor on stage and run through the pa with the direct out for them. It is so good his bass player is buying the 2x10 version for himself. Also the amp records very well whether mic'd or direct out. Finally the weight. It is very light weight i have a 15 watt combo and this monster is only 8 lbs heavier. Hands down i would recommend this amp to anyone regardless of price.

            I have been playing bass for 44 years, so I have owned many rigs. This one is light weight, has good tone, and enough power. It is not an SVT, but does have direct out, allowing you to come through the PA at any concert. My only wish is that it had a speaker out like my SWRs and others I own. The fact that I can use my smart phone to input a new tone in seconds makes up for that. I have a video from an outdoor performance, where I was not input into the PA. I am surprised how well my 5-string cut through the sound using this 250 watt rig. It is now my primary rig.

              I've now been playing BG250-115 for a couple of months and I'm really pleased by how loud and well it sounds.
              I play in a couple of bands where I play all from Hard Rock to Pop music.
              It's easy to dial in the tone I like for each genre I play.

              I bought this to use as a practice amp and I said this is so cool. 4 months later it cuts off by itself. I said okay I'm under warranty so I sould have no issues. Musicians Friend referred me to someone else to fix it and I have to pay for the shipping. Never again. Make sure you read the fine print before you purchase.
