Details

This is not the cute little practice amp you bring home to meet your mom! Diminutive in size and easy to transport but packing some serious punch, the BG250-208 is basically a great bass amp run through an atomic accelerator, resulting in pure tone and focus.

  • Light, Portable, Powerful

  • TonePrint Enabled

  • Tone Shaping Tools

  • Built-in Bass Tuner

And yes it's great for practicing, easy to transport and easy on the eyes. But inside is a true tone monster.

No Weight, Tons of Authority

This compact little miracle may look small, but it has tone for days. An excellent choice if you need a compact combo without you losing the body of your tone. Less weight and zero compromise on tone is the credo here. The sound is best characterized as fresh, inspiring and with nice clarity and attitude, without ever losing the rumble.

Signature Effects. For Free.

BG250-208 sports Bass TonePrint, a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into the TonePrint slot. So load any of the Bass TonePrints and off you go! You can switch between two TonePrints with the optional Switch-3 footswitch; change them on the fly or mute - whatever you need to create your tone.

We've got an ever-expanding roster of the coolest people in bass today that have given us their signature versions of TC effects, so there's bound to be a sound that inspires you!

Oh, and if you want to use some of the slots for a bit (or a lot) of dirt - go for it! They accept our BassDrive TonePrints as well, which range from TubeDrive - ported from the RH750 - to the crushing 'The Beast' TonePrint. 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 BG250-208 via our übercool free smartphone app or via the TC Electronic website if you want to use a computer.

Shape Your Sound

Maybe you want our SpectraComp TonePrint (per string compression that totally rules) at the press of a button - that's cool too! Shaping your sound should be your decision - so we've added a set of intelligent controls that make sure you're always boosting and cutting in areas optimized for bass.

Great Things Start Small

OK. So you bought the combo - what does it allow you to do? Well, it's very versatile and performs great regardless of genre because of a set of really smart controls. Turn them and just the right frequencies get a boost or cut, enabling you to sculpt truly great sounds. Plus connecting an external cabinet is not a problem if you need to fill bigger spaces with some sweet low end.

Fine-tuning Bass

BG250-208 has a built-in tuner. How bleeping smart is that? Tune up and start your jam or practice session with the confidence your bass is perfectly in tune.

TonePrint® Enabled - Signature Bass Effects

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.

Oh, this being the 21st century and all, we've 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! 

Backstage Pass - All Access

The BG combo series builds on our smash success BH amps and pair portability with playability. Plus a feature set and tonal quality that makes them truly great! 250 Watt 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!

Effect Types

You can load and swap effect types on the BG250/BH250 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 our 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 our 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 BG250/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 our 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.
