BH250 was a true innovation within the world of bass. Bass players were floored by how such great tones could be contained in an enclosure so small and lightweight, that they immediately cried out for more. So that’s what we decided to do. With the BH800 you get 800 Watts of raw power, and all the punch and creative features your heart could possibly desire without compromising with the super portable and lightweight build that made the original BH250 such an innovative amp. And with the intelligent EQ section and the option of driving several cabs at once, BH800 is the new natural choice for every modern bass player out there
• TonePrint – For a world of signature effects
• 800 Watt
TonePrint: Creativity at the Core
With the BH800’s two TonePrint slots, you become the amp designer! So whether you need a lush chorus and a compressor for that next funk gig, or maybe a monstrous distortion and an octaver for your upcoming show with your metal band, BH800 will have you covered, and then some! TonePrint simply means signature effects, created by some of the world’s best bass players, for instance Nathan East, Victor Wooten, Richard Bona and Duff McKagan. And, as if that wasn’t enough, they are available for free, straight from your smartphone. Finally an amp that’s as versatile as you need it to be!
Bass is more present than ever in today’s music. We’ve transitioned from supporting members to the guys in the spotlight. Let’s face it, we’re in demand and we need the tools to deliver – BH800 does just that. With its Lightweight, portable design, Intelligent EQ section, ultra-precise on-board tuner that handles up to six strings and unlimited tonal versatility through TonePrint, BH800 isn’t just your run-of-the-mill bass amp… it’s what bass amps were intended to be!
Tone is Where the Heart Is
We don’t know what magical schools of Bass-Wizardry our engineers attended, but boy do they know tone! And with the BH800’s intelligent EQ section we’ve once again placed ourselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-game. Behind the deceptively simple four dial design lies a frequency range perfectly tuned for bass. So no matter if you like your sound nice and scooped, fat and groovy or filled with high-end sparkle the BH800’s tone controls will be sure to cut and boost in all the right places, leaving you sounding your best every single time!
You can load and swap effect types on your BH-and BG-Series bass amps via USB or the TonePrint App for smartphones. Once you load an effect of your choice to the amp, you can use the white TonePrint knob to adjust the wet/dry balance – more or less effect so to speak.
You will find that our Sub’n’Up Octaver is one of the most flexible octavers you’ll ever come across. It can take you up an octave, or down an octave, keep it clean, or add some dirt. And it tracks like no other octaver you have ever tried – all the way down to the low B-string!
SpectraComp is the same multi-band compressor that you’ll find in the Blacksmith. In essence, you get a ‘compressor per string’ that is not fooled by the impact of the lower strings only, which is a known problem when using single-band compressors for bass.
Bass Drive will give you the same convincing tube-like character that the TubeTone feature of e.g. RH750 and the Blacksmith is so famous for. On top of that, it can also get downright dirty and add drive, distortion or fuzz for more heavy duties.
The Chorus effect is based on our legendary Stereo Chorus Flanger – aka SCF – that set new standards for chorus greatness decades ago and is still going strong. Now, it has been tailored with painstaking attention to detail for one specific purpose: Bass!
The Flanger effect builds on our Vortex Flanger pedal that has amazed and inspired bass players all over the world ever since its release in 2010.
The Vibrato effect is similar to our Vibrato Shaker pedal. It may not be the most common effect for bass players, but many have found it great for experimenting with new styles and creative ideas
TonePrint Enabled – Signature Bass Effects
Bass TonePrints are free, custom-tuned effects, provided by your favorite bass players! TonePrints give you access to an effect as it is used by the artist – so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by the best bass players in the world.
Oh, this being the 21st century and all, we’ve made a TonePrint App which allows you to beam TonePrints from your phone to your TonePrint-enabled pedal or amp. Easy, fast and totally free of charge!
