With Blacksmith on-stage, power is not an issue - large clubs, major venues or full-scale stadiums, Blacksmith covers it all. A massive 1600 watts delivers a huge bass tone that will follow your slightest move while playing those hard-rocking bass lines and hammering riffs.
Blacksmith offers more than excessive power, with 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.
Blacksmith is capable 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 foot of speaker cones blasting air in your direction... You better put that foot on the monitor to keep standing!

Value Quality Features
As soon as I got the money together I got one of my own.
First off, this thing can handle a 2 ohm load with ease--that is 4, 8 ohm cabs strung together! With that sort of power it erupts thunderously and speaks with authority. I can be heard over any mix.
On top of all of this power, you get unbelievable tone. It responds so well to my attack and fretwork that it really keeps me on top of my game--any sloppiness is immediately noticeable!
I really like the tweetertone feature- you can easily dial in just the right amount of bite and treble for your playing style.
The Blacksmith is a fantastic sounding head with many modern features and refinements that really make it a winner in my opinion.
