Product Description

The original 15" BG250 raised the bar for lightweight bass combos. TC Electronic's range of BG250 combos share the same build, but sound completely individual. The powerful TonePrint effects and settings let you get the sound you are looking for, no matter which BG250 you choose.

The BG250-115 gives you a warm, powerful and fat sound as well as clear high-mids and treble that make sure your tone is always distinct and sitting perfectly in the mix.

See all the tones that this combo amp can give you:


It's light yet super powerful, features intelligent tone shaping tools and has an onboard tuner for 4, 5 and 6 string basses. Add to that, the ultimate effects solution: Dual TonePrint! You can swap effect types on the fly and you even get custom TonePrints created by some of the greatest bass players totally free of charge.

Compact Combo With Serious Punch and Features

The BG250-115 may be ultra-portable, but it still houses all the things that make a great bass combo. It's light yet powerful, features super versatile tone shaping tools and it has an onboard tuner specifically calibrated for bass, spanning six strings.

- TonePrint Enabled
- Ultra-light, Ultra-powerful
- Intelligent EQ Section
- Built-in Bass Tuner
- Warm, fat and punchy 1x15" speaker configuration

Signature Effects. For Free.

BG250-115 sports Bass TonePrint, a unique feature that lets you load signature effects into a TonePrint slot. And since more is more, we've included two slots. So load any of the Bass TonePrints and off you go! You can switch between them with the optional Switch-3 footswitch; change them on the fly or mute whatever you need to create your tone.

We've got an ever-expanding roster of the coolest people in bass today that have given us their signature versions of TC effects, so there's bound to be a sound that inspires you!

Oh, and if you want to use some of the slots for a bit (or a lot) of dirt go for it! They accept our BassDrive TonePrints as well, which range from TubeDrive - ported from the RH750 - to the crushing "The Beast" TonePrint. Or maybe you want SpectraComp, our amazing world-class per string compression TonePrint specifically designed for bass players. This allows you to shape your sound, create your tone and basically take the TC Electronic Bass TonePrint arsenal wherever you need it to go.

Power That Moves

What good is having a ton of power if you risk your back or need to rent a forklift every time you have a gig? NO good at all, that's why we designed BG250-115 to have 250 watts of raw power, delivered through our cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology. This helps bring the total weight down to an extremely portable 39 lbs/17.7kg - making it one of the lightest yet loudest combos in its class. This combo has a warm, powerful and fat sound but never loses the high mids or treble frequencies.

Fine-tuning Bass

BG250-115 has a built-in tuner. How bleeping smart is that? Tune up and start your jam or practice session with the confidence your bass is perfectly in tune.

Classic Sounds - Forward thinking

There's no doubt our bass amps tick all the right boxes when it comes to help inspire bassists. We are a dedicated team of bass players who really want to make a difference, so we came up with a bunch of features that really make sense. Some of these extra features include an onboard tuner, TonePrint functionality and an Intelligent EQ Section, giving you a combo that makes life as a bassist much better.

Features:

- Ultra-light, Ultra-powerful 15" combo
- Two TonePrint Slots
- Intelligent Tone Shaping Tools
- Built-in Tuner for 4, 5 and 6 String Basses

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome small light rig on a budget."
Overall: This is the age of class D bass amps and this might be the best combo going in a class D format. Very uncolored and useful gain & master section. Really functional tone stack. Tube emulation is spot on for a B15n and makes it almost like a new age version of that amp, in fact I was able to dial in the "motown sound" almost instantly. Tone print is a cool trick, works perfectly. I beamed the spectracomp in and it will probably stay. It really adds value to the amp but doesn't really need it, it'd just a super clean machine. And light? Wow! I was able to carry it with one hand easily (i'm no HULK) and although it's a bulky shape you can manage it with the handle on top with no problem. The cab itself is really quiet and solid for an amp in this price range, no rattles, buzzes, or rings. I've been playing for 20+ years and have tried dozens of combos and owned many. This one might be the best one I've ever had so far. I need to gig with it yet, but I have no doubts of it's potential.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Just what I wanted for Christmas!"
Overall: Ok, I bought this for myself, it still is a great Christmas gift! I ordered this amp mainly because it was only 39 LBS, I can't lift too much weight. After using a small 15 watt practice amp, this is astounding! It rattles the house, things fall off of shelves. It sounds great, too! I loaded a couple of TonePrint effects that I liked, though I'm not sure if I'll use them, I'm still learning to play, not yet ready to join a band. But they do sound nice! In the early 70's I had a Peavy amp, it was bigger than this, and only 200 watts. Now I get more power in a smaller box. After over 30 years away from playing bass, it's great to be back at it, and thanks to the Internet, I'm learning things. This time I don't plan on giving up! With this amp, I'm confident that it'll be loud enough when and if I play with other musicians. Lots of power, great sound, lots of bass. I'm very happy with this purchase!
Style of Music: Rock (mostly Beatles tunes so far - I grew up on that stuff)

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
