Massive Bass Sound You Can Fit in Your Gig Bag!The compact TC Electronic BH250 bass guitar amplifier head brings a whole new level of portability and sound quality to your bass rig. Weighing in at just over 4 lbs. and packing an impressive 250 watts of power, the BH250 is one of the first ever fully functional bass amps you can easily stow in the accessory pocket of your gig bag. But that's only part of the larger-than-life quality of the BH250 bass guitar amplifier head. Onboard, you'll find TC Electronic's world-famous TonePrint technology, which lets you call up a wide range of cool bass effects custom built by some of the hottest bass players around. Add to that the ability to hook up to just about any cabinet, plus a balanced XLR direct output, and you're ready to play anywhere when you've got a TC Electronic BH250 bass amp head in your rig.
TC Electronic BH250 Compact Bass Amplifier Head at a Glance:
Everything a bass player could ask for in a bass head
Ditch the bulk without sacrificing functionality. With the BH250, TC Electronic tosses aside the notion that you only get full-sized control from a full-sized amp. Seriously, photos can hardly convey how portable this little amp is. We're talking about a mere 4 lbs. in a unit that's easily small enough to fit in your gig bag. And when you see what TC Electronic managed to pack in the BH250 bass amplifier, you're totally going to flip. For starters, the BH250 has two gain modes, accommodating both passive and active pickups equally well. A standard 3-band EQ circuit also lets you tweak your overall tone, allowing you to dial in the perfect sound for any venue.
Another great thing about the BH250 is the handy built-in bass tuner, which you can use to tune 4-, 5-, and even 6-string bass guitars. There's a balanced XLR output for running direct, and a headphone jack for silent practice. And as a final special touch, TC Electronic designed the BH250 to play well with any cabinet or combination of cabinets with at least a 4-ohm load, so you practically never have to worry about what you hook up to it.
TonePrint technology opens up a world of killer bass effects
By now, practically every serious guitar player has heard of TC Electronic's TonePrint technology. The BH250 takes this same super-flexible effects concept and applies it to bass. The way it works is simple. You just go to TC's website find the bass tone you want, and download it to your BH250 bass amp head for instant recall any time you want it. Choose from chorus, flanger, vibrato, compression, drive, or even a super-cool Octaver effect. There's a handy blend knob that lets you control the wet/dry mix of whatever TonePrint effect you grab.
Switching TonePrint effects on the TC Electronic BH250 bass amp is also a breeze, particularly if you have a smartphone. Then you just go to the TonePrint app, and browse for tones from there. You'll find all sorts of cool tones from top bass players such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Fourplay, Toto), Charles Cave (White Lies), Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stoneage), and many others. When it's time to load up your new tone, you just hold your smartphone's speaker up to your pickups, hit play, and let it do its magic. It's that simple.

BH250!!!! What are you waiting for?
by Kurt from Traverse City MiWith so many companies coming out with these compact heads now, I thought best to be patient and research,research,research!! After playing through a few, reading countless reviews,and process of elim... read more [+]ination I finally.decided on the TC Electronics BH250.What a great sound this little mofo has. And the tonePrint is absolutely awesome. Once you download the app to your iphone there are tons of different pedal effects to choose from by the hottest bassists out there who custom designed each one.these are not fake sounding cheese effects, It comes out the same as having that exact pedal dialed in the way you like it. I added the effects that were most practical to me onto my favorites list and when I pull one up it takes mere seconds to send to the head. Easily done between songs!! So many things this little devil does and does well.. Go Get One!!!!! I paired with the tce 2x12 cab . All I need for volume and killer tone!!! TC Electronics are definitely winning over my loyalty close [-]

I also play keyboards and I use it for my Roland keyboard and it sound really good.
This amp has the Toneprint downloads. You can download tones from your smart phone right into your bass pickups and then into the amp. It is very smart. It is built very strong.
Allot of thinking went into this amp..... close [-]
