Turbosound - The Sound Difference
A world-leading British designer and manufacturer of professional loudspeaker systems, TURBOSOUND has been building cutting-edge speakers for more than 30 years, and won the venerable Queen’s Award for Innovation numerous times for their highly acclaimed loudspeaker designs. You will find TURBOSOUND’s distinguished products not only touring with the best-known international artists, but also in countless major venues worldwide.

Class-D - Massive Power, Perfect Sound
Thanks to our revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology, we are able to provide you with enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely-powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.

MOSFET Preamp - High-Voltage, High-Headroom Tube Sound
BUGERA’s revolutionary high-voltage MOSFET preamplifier redefines solid-state bass tone, providing the sound, feel and immense dynamics of an authentic tube amp. Like with real vacuum tubes, our new MOSFET design equally operates at high voltages, providing this preamp with unheard of headroom to honor all of your playing dynamics; from your subtly-nuanced signature riff s and bass lines, to your most powerful, attention-grabbing solos. The ULTRABASS BXD12 is all about tone, and this highly-versatile and responsive MOSFET preamp provides an abundance of headroom for consistently crystal-clear and faithful sound reproduction – no matter what style of music your gig calls for.

Studio-Quality Compressor - Stairway to Heaven
Our studio-grade compressor is based on classic and famous studio equipment from the 70’s. This totally transparent and musical compressor design allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, which is indicated by the highly visible status LED. The compressor increases sustain and gently smoothens out signal peaks, which is especially handy when you’re laying down the funk, à la slap and pop – or hammering home your most-aggressive metal lines. The resulting output level lets you unleash powerful and impact-laden bass lines, while still sitting right where you need to be in the mix!

DYNAMIZER Technology - The Secret Weapon
What is known as Parallel Compression or “New York” compression, is a dynamic range compression technique used as a secret weapon in high-end sound recording and mixing. Parallel compression is achieved by mixing an unprocessed “dry”, or lightly compressed, signal with a heavily compressed version of the same signal. Rather than bringing down the highest peaks for the purpose of dynamic gain reduction, it reduces the dynamic range by bringing up the softest sounds, adding audible detail. It is most often used on stereo percussion buses in recording and mixdown, on electric bass, and on vocals in recorded and live concert mixes.

Sound Off
As bass players ourselves, we know that only the ultimate in tonal flexibility will do, so we designed the BXD12 to satisfy the most-demanding bassist – you! The passive Gyrator EQ circuit provides the sound and feel of traditional tube amps, while dedicated Bass, Mid and Treble controls, working in tandem with a sophisticated 5-position mid-frequency switch, helps you easily dial-in any tone you can imagine. And since we want a little extra sometimes, BXD12’s Ultra Low and Ultra High switches are always there to launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere. A handy Mute switch allows you to tune up silently, and the -15 dB input switch enables you to jump between passive and active basses in a flash.

Get Connected
Equally adept in the studio, on the stage or in your practice room, the BXD12 is replete with convenient options and connectivity to help you get the job done. For recording and live performance applications, we’ve provided a world-class, balanced DI output. Also included is a dedicated FX Loop for connecting your external effects and a switchable Tuner Output that’s perfect for use with a tuner, or as a live monitor feed. An Aux input is provided for playing along with your favorite music, and the headphone output offers superb tone while practicing. We’ve even provided connectivity for our optional FSB102B footswitch, so you can remotely-control Mute and FX Loop functions.

Your Ultimate Tone Machine
Built from the ground up around an astonishingly-versatile MOSFET preamp, with massive tone-sculpting EQ, and a remarkable DYNAMIZER-regulated, 1,000-Watt Class-D power amp – the BXD12 channels all of your precious tone through an incredible touring-grade TURBOSOUND 12" driver. The BUGERA BXD12 is quite simply... a bass player’s dream come true!

Sounded fantastic and held my playing style extremely well

Product Review

This amp’s EQ is really a sound changer. Even the slightest change makes a difference in the sound. I have an Ibanez sound gear 5 string and a Warwick thumb bolt on 5 string and both sounded really great. Plugged into a sound board, this amp made recording engineering actually faster.

Great Bass Amp!

Product Review

I bought this amp for my husband’s birthday with hopes it would help him have a great sound for gigs and something easy to carry. We live on the second floor of an apartment complex and it’s hard for him to carry his Bass Half stack up and down the stairs. This new amp worked out great. The amp was delivered on a day he was playing and he loved it! Said it sounded amazing! So glad we got it.

Great buy at an amazing price

Product Review

I've tried many different Amps, my last daily was a fender rumble. I can say this Bugera sounds awesome. I've been practically jamming with my name every day since I've gotten it. The built in compressor makes my bass sound so crisp.it gets very loud, I haven't had to crank it to Max at all. This amp really gets the house shaking. The inclusion of more middle range knobs really helps shape the kind of sound you want to play. Hands down if you're looking in this price range, this amp is an absolute buy. I transport this amp in my car just about every day and it's very easy to move with the handle. You can even set it down at an angle when playing like a studio monitor. Love it!

It's a good amp for practice

Product Review

It's good for practice but that's about it. It's not 1000 watts maybe 100 or a little more. Once you turn the volume past 11 o'clock it starts to sound like crap and it doesn't get any louder. Might be better if you replace the speaker. May upgrade it later and see if it can go louder without popping

Well Worth the money

Product Review

It's a great amp for what i use it for.(Small venues/At home practice)It's not the 1000 watt amp that's advertised.My guess is 200/250 watts. But that being said it is a great amp for the price. Would recommend to my friends.
