With Blacksmith on-stage, power is not an issue - large clubs, major venues or full-scale stadiums, Blacksmith covers it all. 1600 watts deliver a huge bass tone that will follow your slightest move while playing those hard-rocking bass lines and hammering riffs.

The Blacksmith also features renowned Bass Amp 2.0 features such as integrated chromatic bass tuner, refined tone-shaping tools including 4 bands of EQ, SpectraComp 'per string compression', TubeTone 'complete Tube pre- and power amp recreation' and TweeterTone 'intelligent HF control' as well as the unique 3 user-defined memories, Blacksmith takes bass amplification to a new level in more than one respect.

Blacksmit is capable of handling cabinet combinations all the way down to 2 ohms, so ultimately, you could fire up four RS410 cabinets simultaneously - that's 16 x 10" or 8.7 square feet of speaker cones pushing air in your direction.


  • Flexible Tone Controls - Blacksmith feature a set ofstraightforward controls like you know them from traditional amps, voiced togive you plenty of tweaking options to nail the perfect tone. Chances are thatthis is all you’ll ever need. However, if you’re not fully satisfied with thedefault frequency areas, fear not – every tone control is also capable ofbeing semi-parametric bands. This way, you can pinpoint any frequency you wantto remove or boost for each tone control and then store the settings.
  • On-board User Memories - You might not use presets...yet.If you use different basses or change playing style during shows, you knowthat a few amp presets would be welcome. Blacksmith gives you 3 on-board usermemories for effortless switching between 4 and 5-string basses orRickenbackers and Fenders for that matter. Alternatively, you can create 3entirely different tones for one bass – e.g. overdrive, slap and a vintagetone. Just plug in your bass and use the ‘car radio’ style Store & Recallcontrols to easily switch between you personal presets. Also, by adding theoptional RC4 floor-based remote control, you can switch effortlessly betweenyou presets without ever letting go of the strings.
  • TubeTone - The tweeter control is usually located on therear side of the cabinet, but on Blacksmith you can simply adjust the tweeterlevel right from the front panel. Further, the sound also gets modifiedslightly with filters for a much more intelligent control over the highfrequencies that are critical for giving your sound that razor-sharp edge.
  • Built-in Bass Tuner - Every bass player needs a tuner,but virtually no other amp offers anything else than a ‘tuner out’ feature....Blacksmith does! Simply push the Mute button to get a full-resolution tuner‘light ring’ to help you tune your instrument quickly and accurately. You canalso use the RC4 remote control unit for easy floor-access to thisfunctionality. Both speaker and DI outputs are muted automatically whiletuning. Finally, even when you haven’t pushed the Mute button, the tuner isstill active, only without the light ring feature.
  • Transformer Balanced Studio Grade Line Driver Output -Quality can vary wildly with built-in DIs, but Blacksmith’s DI is transformerbalanced and galvanic isolated from the rest of the amp, which means that youget absolutely no ground loops or annoying humming. And don’t worry about longcable runs – Blacksmith will draw at least 100m of cable with zero loss ofaudio quality. Even though the integrated DI in Blacksmith does not need 48vphantom to operate, it does not get harmed if your sound engineer shouldhappen to leave it on by accident.
  • AES/EBU Digital Recording Out - The AES/EBU connectorlets you record straight into your DAW, such as Pro Tools or Logic. Formaximum flexibility, it’s also S/PDIF compatible and can be switched between‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ in the pre-amp section.
