The BVP5500 begins with two selected pairs of 12AX7 preamp valves with their own Drive-control. Suhweet! When you want to rock the house you need serious power. The BVP5500 brings 550 of the cleanest fan-cooled watts you'll ever hear -- or feel. And since bass players do not live by Watts alone, the BVP5500 is equipped with a stunning arsenal of tone-sculpting tools, including a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids, Ultra-High and Ultra-Low switches, and a 9-band graphic EQ for the ultimate in tone control.
For you non-purists, there is an Effects Loop and an Insert Channel with Preamp Out and Power Amp In connections for expanded versatility. Use the included footswitch to kill the signal to the amp, allowing you to tune in blissful silence and to activate/deactivate the graphic EQ.
Be gentle. This kind of power can go to your head!
