OVERVIEW

Compact combo with big punch and features.

    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 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.

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

    This should hold up as a small gig, church, etc combo- my 74' Gibson EB3 had to push for volume , but the bass is 40 years old with the original pickup. The best part of the transaction was the attitude of Musician's Friend staff- I first tried an extension speaker for my GK 200 MB- just didn't cut it- called up & enquired about the TC- paperwork was done- amp on way took me 15 minutes!!! Good product knowledge and great service- Think I'm going to like this little amp

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

        I sold off my rig of an amp head with a 115 cab and a 210 cab. Needed lighter gear with big sound. I know I will not completely get there with just this, but in bigger venues I'm always using DI.

        This accomplishes my goal in a lightweight, good sounding combo amp. This alone was a sell, and the TonePrint feature was an added bonus. I love experimenting with it. Plus, a free Ditto Looper!! I have yet to play out with it, but look forward to it.

        My con was in regards to the one input which says Active/Passive. The issue came when I used my active settings, which I always use, it distorted. Even at extremely low volumes. Sounded great with my electronics off, but when they were on I was thinking it wasn't going to work for me. Eventually I figured out I needed to drastically lower the volume on my bass and boost on the amp. Ahh! that's it. So now I'm happy. I think two separate inputs are better, with the Active being padded electronically, not manually, but I knew it only had the one going in. It might be an issue switching between P/A basses but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

              I'm a working pro. I needed a lightweight, powerful, and easily portable bass amp system. This combo has been a great solution for me. 250w, simple and powerful EQ section with clean preamp (I usually run the EQ flat, it sounds that good), light, DI for bigger venues... I would have liked to see an effects loop, but I get aroung that. The built in tuner is OK, not great. It is good for a quick drop-D tuning and back up to standard. I still take a standalone tuner for tuning before rehearsal and gigs. Overall, I'm really pleased with this combo. I recommend it to anyone, from novice to working pros, looking for something small, portable, and powerful. Oh, and inexpensive. :)

              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?

                      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.
