Spark Booster is a special type of pedal. It’s a pedal that will ignite your playing and kickstart your inspiration. And no matter how you decide to use it, it’s a guaranteed ear-to-ear grin as soon as the first notes hit you. What starts as a “just-wanna-try-this-pedal-out”-session turns out to be a 3 hour marathon of new riffs, licks and ideas, without you even noticing any time has passed – because you were too busy having fun and sounding great. That type of pedal.
TC Electronic’s BG250 1×15” ultra-light bass combo is the first amp in history with the power to choose and replace on-board effects time and time again. The revolutionary TonePrint® concept offers signature tones created by an ever-expanding list of the world’s finest bass players such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Fourplay, Toto), Charles Cave (White Lies), 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 free of charge. In other words, this loud, light and open-design amp will surpass everything that you have come to expect from a bass combo!
With the BG250, you get a staggering 250 watts of raw power, delivered through our cutting-edge, lightweight Class D amp technology that helps bringing the total weight down to an extremely portable 35 lbs., making it one of the lightest yet loudest combos in its class. The preamp gives you an ultra-fast, integrated 5-string bass tuner, TubeDrive and intelligently contoured Bass Tone controls that create anything from crispy, modern slap tones over grungy, cranked-tube-like tones for classic rock to tight and funky Jaco tones with ease.
Further, an Auxiliary input and headphone output cater for any playback and rehearsal situation, while a balanced XLR output makes recording and live performance a breeze, all of which is underpinned by the cornerstone of great bass amps: superb tone. But coolest of it all is the white TonePrint® knob…
