TonePrint
TonePrint in an amp is a first for TC Electronic's BG250 bass combo. In short, you can load six different types of effects - chorus, flanger, vibrato, drive, compression and octave - or you can even load artist created Bass TonePrints that are made by some of the best bass players on the face of the planet! Just pick and choose.

You can load these effect types and Bass TonePrints by USB or beam them directly from your smartphone through the pickups of your bass to the amp.

The revolutionary TonePrint offers signature effects 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!

The preamp of the TC Electronic BG250 bass amp 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 with the TC Electronic BG250 bass amp a breeze, all of which is underpinned by the cornerstone of great bass amps: superb tone.

Not Disapointed!!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I love this amp!! It has all the power of the Acoustic B200 stack I have been using,,, Had this amp for about a month, on a daily basis, recording and live. Lots of power, used it now on both indoor and outdoor gigs. I did not have to use it with house PA indoors, the pre-eq direct out is awesome! I ran thru the board outside, volume never exceded half-way the whole gig.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
So far so good! No complaints what-so-ever on workmanship, Ihave used it alot in several differant venues, no heating, or distortion problems as of yet..I would suggest however getting a cover for it, the baggage-handlers that load gear could destroy the vynl!
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
I wish they had made it to store more than one effect at a time... Only other thing is I feel they should have added an external speaker jack to add a couple of 10's to the mix! Also list the foot-controller as a MUCH NEEDED option.
Sound
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
Has more low-end sound than I expected from a combo wieghing only 35 pounds,I use it with my Fender Jazz-Special, along with a 5-string,,, plenty of tonal range both hi and low!
Feel
Are the controls logically laid out?
I like the lay-out, tuner and mute control, and the on-off buttons for effects,,, they are small and light, a good reason for using the optional footswitch.
Tone
How is the tone? Distortion vs clean?
Tone is great! Tube settings you can actually dial in a about any tube sound you want.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
A far as price goes, you cannot beat the value! Much lighter than most 15" combo's...
