In my search for the perfect gig worthy bass combo one of the amps that I really wanted to try was TC Electronic’s new BG250 1×15 combo. Fortunately my local Guitar Center had one in stock so I sat down and gave it go.
As the name implies, the BG250 pushes 250 watts into a single 15″ Custom TC speaker and TC Tweeter. It features a built in tuner, a “TubeDrive” tube emulation knob, plus TC Electronic’s famous “TonePrintÂ®” technology, which essentially lets you pick and change one specific, on-board effect. Additional features include bass contoured tone controls, a mute button, an axillary input for connecting your ipod, a headphone jack, and a balance output for sending your signal to a PA. An optional footswitch is available which allows you to control the TubeDrive, “TonePrintÂ®”, and tuner.
