OVERVIEW

Big rumble comes in small, feature-loaded packages.

The TC Electronic BG250-208 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.

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, a mute switch 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 BG250-208 250W 2x8 Bass Combo Amp with TonePrint:

I bought this as soon as it came out. I was already familiar with amp section in this unit and I knew that I liked it. To me, the sound was not up to the standards of a professional piece of gear and the volume output was weaker than what I expected.

To address these two issues I repaced the original drivers with a pair of Eminence Beta 8a drivers. The sound was immediately much better and because the amp was now seeing a 4 ohm load, the volume output seemed more like what I expected from that head, and much more usable.

    Comments about TC Electronic BG250-208 250W 2x8 Bass Combo Amp with TonePrint:

    This is a great amp for double bass.
    The combo sounds really natural and makes my double bass sound big.
    The fact that the BG250-208 is so light, just makes my way to the gig way easier.
    Good job TC Electronic!

      Comments about TC Electronic BG250-208 250W 2x8 Bass Combo Amp with TonePrint:

      Let's be real folks. You are not going to fill a hall with Keith Moon and Pete Townshend slamming away in the band with a 2X8 rig. But that's not what's important to me. Nor are you slap happy players going to get that SWR Goliath bite in the high end. What this little guy has is tone for us in the pocket players out there. I just receive the diminutive BG250-208, and I'm impressed by the tight, focused bass tones that are just there with the EQ straight up. I have always thought that getting the focus on the open E of my PBs and JBs to be a bit of a challenge, but there it is with this little guy. And what about that tone on my SG Bass? Can't wait to plug in my Ric, not to my double bass.

      If I need that wooly, warm vibe, there are plenty of other amps in my collection including a BG250-112. Very cool box.

      ...and only 26 lbs? What the...

          Comments about TC Electronic BG250-208 250W 2x8 Bass Combo Amp with TonePrint:

          I got this for practicing electric bass. It has nice features, including headphone jack (which mutes speakers) and the cool tone print effects. There is an XLR out, which is good for home recording. And it is the only combo in this TC series, which will power an external cab. So, I can power a 1 X 12 combo and be heard, while jamming with guitarist and drummer. And it is very portable (25 lbs).

          Good little practice amp, but I had the impression it would be louder and could be used for a small room. It won't cut through a drummer.

              Great for Upright and acoustic gigs. Full lows, right across the strings.
