What TC Electronic has come up with is a combo amplifier that combines tons of raw power with stunning tone-shaping tools and an impressive list of unconventional features.

The TC Electronic BG250-210 sports Bass TonePrint, a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into a TonePrint slot.  And since more is more, TC Electronic has included two slots.  So load any of the Bass TonePrints and off you go.  You can switch between them with the optional (sold separately) Switch-3 footswitch; change them on the fly or mute - whatever you need to create your tone.

If you want to use some of the slots for a bit (or a lot) of dirt - go for it.  The slots accept TC Electronic's BassDrive TonePrints as well, which range from TubeDrive - ported from the RH750 - to the crushing 'The Beast' TonePrint.  Or maybe you want SpectraComp, TC Electronic's amazing world-class per string compression TonePrint specifically designed for bass players.  This allows you to shape your sound, create your tone and basically take the TC Electronic Bass TonePrint arsenal wherever you need it to go.

They're all available for free and you can beam them directly to your BG250 via TC Electronc's free smartphone app or via the TC Electronic website, if you want to use a computer.

The BG250-210 has 250 watts of raw power, delivered through TC Electronic's cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology.  This helps bring the total weight down to an extremely portable 44 lbs (20 kg), making it one of the lightest, yet loudest combos in its class.  This combo has a warm, powerful and fat sound but never loses the high mids or treble frequencies.

No matter how you look at it, power matters.  Bass has historically been an instrument of power and authority and with BG250-210, you can rest assured there is always plenty of power to go around.  The 2x10" version has a scooped sound, with a fast response.  This results in a tone that is focused, without ever losing the low end.  Plus, with TC Electronic's innovative Intelligent EQ Section, you'll always be cutting or boosting at just the right frequencies, making sure the sound is spot on.

BG250-210 has a 1" custom piezo tweeter and the 2x10" driver configuration adds a percussive punch that really allows you to cut through.

Bass TonePrints are free, custom-tuned effects, provided by your favorite bass players.  TonePrints give you access to an effect as it is used by the artist - so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by the best bass players in the world.

TC Electronic has made a TonePrint App which allows you to beam TonePrints from your phone to your TonePrint-enabled pedal or amp. Easy, fast and totally free of charge.

The BG combo series builds on TC Electronic's smash success BH amps and pair portability with playability.  Plus a feature set and tonal quality that makes them truly great.  250 Watts of raw power with different speaker configurations for different needs, intelligent EQ section, built-in tuner and TonePrint functionality combined with killer tone.  True greatness comes from the ability to be small, but these combos are the next big thing

The built–in tuner will tune up your bass regardless of whether you play 4, 5 or 6 strings.  The four LEDs match a standard 4–string bass, but if you have a low B–string the E and A LEDs will light up together, and if you have a high C–string, look at the D and G LEDs. Use your iPod, phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks.  Just plug it into the AUX input and you're ready for a rehearsal session, combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone.

With the optional (sold separately) Switch-3 footswitch, you can switch TonePrints, change them on the fly or mute – whatever you need to create your tones.

  • Effect Types
    • You can load and swap effect types on the BG250 via USB or the TonePrint App for smartphones.  Once you load an effect of your choice to the amp, you can use the white TonePrint knob to adjust the wet/dry balance - more or less effect so to speak.
    • Octaver: You will find that TC Electronic's Sub'n'Up Octaver is one of the most flexible octavers you'll ever come across.  It can take you up an octave, or down an octave, keep it clean, or add some dirt.  And it tracks like no other octaver you have ever tried - all the way down to the low B-string.
    • Chorus: The Chorus effect is based on TC Electronic's legendary Stereo Chorus Flanger - aka SCF - that set new standards for chorus greatness decades ago and is still going strong.  Now, it has been tailored with painstaking attention to detail for one specific purpose: Bass.
    • SpectraComp: SpectraComp is the same multi-band compressor that you'll find in the Blacksmith.  In essence, you get a 'compressor per string' that is not fooled by the impact of the lower strings only, which is a known problem when using single-band compressors for bass.
    • Flanger: The BH250 Flanger effect builds on our Vortex Flanger pedal that has amazed and inspired bass players all over the world ever since its release in 2010.
    • Bass Drive: Bass Drive will give you the same convincing tube-like character that the TubeTone feature of e.g. RH750 and the Blacksmith is so famous for.  On top af that, it can also get downright dirty and add drive, distortion or fuzz for more heavy duties.
    • Vibrato: The Vibrato effect is similar to TC Electronic's Vibrato Shaker pedal.  It may not be the most common effect for bass players, but many have found it great for experimenting with new styles and creative ideas.
