TC’s BH250 offers virtually endless musical and tonal inspiration via the revolutionary TonePrint concept in a package small enough to fit in a gig bag pocket. It comes with a massive 250 watts of power and the unique TonePrint feature and a built-in bass tuner that works on anything from 4 to 6 strings.

The TonePrint concept allows for loading signature bass effects in seconds: Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Sub’n’ Up Octaver, SpectraComp or Bass Drive. Players can choose from an ever-expanding list of signature artist TonePrints created by bass masters like Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Fourplay, Toto), Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stoneage), Gail Ann Dorsey (Lenny Kravitz, David Bowie, Seal), Mark King (Level 42), Roscoe Beck (Leonard Cohen, Robben Ford) and many more, all available for free on TC’s website or via the TonePrint App for iPhone and Android.


Great bass tone is always essential. BH250’s Tone Control section may look like a standard solution with Treble, Mid and Bass knobs, but each will react differently whether used for cutting or boosting. When bass players want to beef up the bottom, it is typically at a different frequency than if they want to cut a bit of low-end, and this applies to the Mid and High areas as well. Therefore the Tone Control section has been painstakingly tailored to give bass players exactly what they are looking for when tweaking the Bass, Mid and Treble knobs.

BH250 can be hooked up to any cabinet, or combination of cabinets (min. 4 ohm load). TC recommends its range of BC cabinets that come in 2×10”, 2×12” and 4×10” configurations, or its top range of bass cabinets – the RS series – that are available as 1×12”, 2×10”, 2×12” and 4×10”.


A TC Electronic ‘Switch 3’ footswitch can be added for even more control. TonePrint effects can be punched in and out and the amp can be muted. Furthermore, even though the TonePrint knob controls one effect at a time, the previously loaded effect is stored in the internal circuit and with the third switch this effect can be punched in and out as well, which in reality gives BH250 a dual effect section capable of combining any 2 of the 6 effect types available.
