With BH550 we're building on everything that people loved about the original BH250, by simply throwing in more of what made the amp so innovative. You get more power, more punch and more creative features without compromising with the original's ultra-lightweight design. On top of that you get a highly intelligent EQ section, and a build in tuner. And you know what that means... total tonal bliss!

TonePrint: Complete



 



Creative Control



No longer is your creativity held back by some fixed set of build-in effects! With the innovative TonePrint technology you become the amp designer. So if you need a swirling vintage flanger and 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, you can mix and match to your heart's desire!




Art. Where Technology



 



And Design Meet.



Long gone are the days where bassists where the quiet dudes 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! And with the BH550's intelligent EQ section we've once again placed ourselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-game. 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 single time!



 


Backstage Pass - All Access



 



BH550 offers the perfect mix between weight and power, intuitive controls, TonePrint and an onboard tuner making it the must have tool for virtually any bassist.





TonePrint: Your Vision, Your Sound



BH550 features a wide range of TonePrint effects, from Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver to our custom SpectraComp & BassDrive – and they all sound killer! We even have Combined TonePrints that let you enjoy the power of two TonePrints in one!



Frequent Awesomeness



The intelligent EQ section is designed to cut and boost at different frequencies. Tailored specifically for bass for ultra-precise tonal shaping.



Bass Tuner



The BH550’s ultra-precise on-board tuner is there when you need it. It’s always on, so you constantly have a clear read of whether you’re in tune or not. And with a frequency range that supports up to six-string basses, you can be sure that your low-notes will always be in tune!



Plug & Play



Use your iPod, phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session, combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone!



Late Night Jammin’



If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it grooving, and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.



Balanced Output



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.



Foot Control



You can hook up a Switch 3 pedal for complete creative control. The first switch will turn TonePrint 1 on and off, the second turns TonePrint 2 on and off, while the third will mute the amp. Glorious sonic options straight at your feet!
