So if you need a swirling vintage flanger or a TubeDrive for your next rock gig, or a compressor and a chorus when you play with your funk band, you
simply just load them into the amp. This may sound surreal, but trust us, it’s THAT easy!
TonePrint means signature effects made by the most awesome bass players around, like Victor Wooten, Duff McKagan, Nathan East and many more.
These TonePrints are available for free - straight from your smartphone - and with 2 switchable TonePrint slots available, the tonal possibilities are
Art. Where Technology And Design Meet
Long gone are the days where bassists were the quiet dudes standing side of stage staring at their shoes pumping roots and fifths. Today’s bassist is
versatile, expressive, loud and ready for his place in the spotlight. To perfectly support the needs of our fellow lovers of low-end, we’ve designed the
BH550 to fit the needs of busy bassists on the go. That means a lightweight, portable design, a killer EQ section and unlimited tonal versatility through
TonePrint - plus an on-board tuner. So just like you, this amp was born to rock!
Tone Is Where The Heart Is
We don’t know what magical schools of bass-wizardry our engineers attended, but boy do they know tone. With the BH550’s intelligent EQ section
we’ve once again placed ourselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-curve. Behind the deceptively simple four-dial design lies a frequency range
perfectly tuned for bass. So no matter if you like your sound nice and scooped, fat and groovy or filled with high-end sparkle the BH550’s tone controls
will be sure to cut and boost in all the right places, leaving you sounding your best every time!

Use the balanced output to send a signal to a PA or a sound engineer when playing live, or use it as a high–quality bass preamp in the studio when
recording, taking advantage of the tone controls and TonePrint features. Choose between sending a pre signal for a completely clean and direct sound
or chose post to get the flavor of the amp.
