From the moment you experience its sounds, the raw power, and its many amazing features you realize that the bass team at TC Electronic has delivered what you as a bass player have always wanted: an amp system without compromise.
With decades of cutting edge amp design and signal processing development, no other company could bring you this much power, flexibility and tone within a bass amp system.

We’re proud to bring you RH450 - the bass innovation that will define Bass Amp 2.0.
World Ready power supply
The ultimate in convenience for the traveling musician. The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier for anyone on the road as there’s no complicated fuse changing , just plug and play!
Digital Recording output
The AES/EBU connector means you can record straight into your DAW, such as Pro Tools or Logic. For maximum flexibility it’s also S/PDIF compatible and switchable from pre to post in the pre-amp section. Integrated DI box Quality can vary wildly with built-in DIs, but RH450’s DI is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum. And don’t worry about long cable runs , RH450 will draw at least 100m of cable with zero drop in audio quality. Even though the integrated DI in RH450 does not need 48v phantom to operate, it does not get harmed either if your sound engineer accidently leaves it on.
The versatility of RH450 wouldn’t really make sense if it came in an oversized, bulky box. Its stylish design with the smooth grab’n’go handle just spells out portability. It sets your creativity free and screams for you to bring it along wherever your bass talent takes you. Bring your own sound for whatever show or studio session you’re involved in or jam out on the tour bus, at the hotel room, at home - and hey, it works for rehearsals too.
The 450w high power output level of RH450 is accomplished by using Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronic’s Active Power Management & trade. APM effectively means that the amp behaves very much like a tube amp when getting close to maximum performance by optimizing the power impact, contrary to the hard-clipping tendencies of transistor amps and most other Class D amps.
