TC Electronic Combo450 Bass Guitar Combo Amplifier
The Award-Winning RH450 Bass Head now offered in a Portable 2x10 Combo!
Combo450 uses a 450 watt bass head identical to TC Electronic's world class RH450 bass amplifier head. Offer ing the same unique tone control section, TubeTone and providing all of the rich characteristics of a full-on tube amp the Combo450 sounds amazingly tight with its SpectraComp per string compression for more bite and punch than any other bass amp compressor.
Combo450 also includes the on-board chromatic bass tuner, three user memories alongside our Active Power Management system, giving it maximum power impact and result in Combo450 behaving like a tube amp at full blast - all key features that don't exist in any other combo.
TC Electronic Combo450 Features
- Spectra Comp offers virtually per string multi-band compression
- TubeTone emulates both the pre and power amp delivering full tube growl
- 3 User memories store and recall controls for easy preset selection
- Flexible Tone control allows semi parametric adjustments to your sound
- Integrated Chromatic Tuner by pressing the Mute button
- Visual indicators for Mute and the Tuner
- Rehearsal input for Jamming along with your MP3 or other Audio player
The amp comes matched with the customized Eminence 2x10 inch drivers and 1 inch tweeter that deliver the clean, punchy and powerful Combo450 sound. The amp and speakers are housed in an 18mm hard-wearing plywood cabinet with a pull-up handle and wheels for easy transportation.
Other features include an auto-sensing PSU so the combo can be safely plugged in to mains power in any country while on tour, and a Rehearsal Input socket that allows you to plug in a variety of audio sources so you can play along for practice. Connecting the optional RC4 foot controller to Combo450 gives you instant control over the three user memories as well as on-floor tuner indication.
Combo450 also has speaker breakout connections to add additional cabinets. And as with any other of our amps, Combo450 can drive a combination of any three TC cabinets. Also, as Combo450 utilizes the TC stackability
system, it can be expanded in a variety of ways. For example, add a brand new RS112 or RS212 by vertically stacking the cabinets, or even add an RS212 and RS410 for the ultimate power combo for those larger gigs.
Combo450 really is the ultimate bass partnership, your go-to
system for every situation.
World Ready power supply
The ultimate in convenience for the traveling musician. The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier for anyone on the road as there’s no complicated fuse changing – just plug and play!
Digital Recording output
The AES/EBU connector means you can record straight into your DAW, such as Pro Tools or Logic. For maximum flexibility it’s also S/PDIF compatible and switchable from pre to post in the pre-amp section.
Quality can vary wildly with built-in linedrivers, but Combo450’s linedriver is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum. And don’t worry about long cable runs – Combo450 will draw at least 100m of cable with zero drop in audio quality.
Even though the integrated linedriver in Combo450 does not need 48v phantom to operate, it does not get harmed either if your sound engineer accidently leaves it on.
The versatility of Combo450 wouldn’t really make sense if was not easily portable. Combo450 is housed in an 18mm hard-wearing plywood cabinet with a pull-up handle and wheels for easy transportation. It sets your creativity free and screams for you to bring it along wherever your bass talent takes you. Bring your own sound for whatever show or studio session you’re involved in.
The 450w high power output level of Combo450 is accomplished by using Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronic’s Active Power Management. APM effectively means that the amp behaves very much like a tube amp when getting close to maximum performance by optimizing the power impact, contrary to the hard-clipping tendencies of transistor amps and most other Class D amps.
