The TC Electronic BH250 took the bass world by storm. Bass players were simply floored by how many great tones could be contained in such a small enclosure. With the BH800 TC Electronic is building on everything that people loved about the original BH250, by simply throwing in more of what made the amp so innovative. With the BH800 you get 800 Watts of raw power and all the punch and creative features your heart could possibly desire, without compromising the super-portable and lightweight build. With the intelligent EQ section and the option of driving several cabs at once, BH800 is the natural choice for every modern bass player out there!

  • 800-watts of raw power
  • Light and portable
  • Inspirational – TonePrint signature bass effects
  • TonePrint Enabled - two switchable TonePrint slots
  • Built-in bass tuner
  • Intelligently contoured tone controls

No longer is your creativity held back by some fixed set of built-in effects. With the innovative TonePrint technology you become the amp designer.
So if you need a swirling vintage flanger or a TubeDrive for your next rock gig, a compressor or a chorus when you play with your funk band or maybe
a monstrous distortion and an octaver for your upcoming show with your metal band, you simply just load them into BH800. This may sound surreal,
but it’s THAT easy! TonePrint means signature effects made by the most awesome bass players around, like Victor Wooten, Duff McKagan, Richard Bona, Nathan East and many more. These TonePrints are available for free - straight from your smartphone - and with 2 switchable TonePrint slots available, the tonal possibilities are virtually endless. Finally an amp that’s as versatile as you need it to be!

Bass is more present than ever in today’s music. Players have transitioned from supporting members to the guys in the spotlight. Let’s face it, you’re
in demand and need the tools to deliver – BH800 does just that. With its lightweight, portable design, Intelligent EQ section, ultra-precise on-board
tuner 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!

With the BH800’s intelligent EQ section TC Electronic once again placed themselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-curve. 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 time!

The TC Electronic BH800 offers the perfect mix between weight and power, intuitive controls, TonePrint and an onboard tuner making it the must have tool for virtually any bassist. The BH800’s ultra-precise onboard tuner is there when you need it. It’s always on, so you constantly have a clear read of whether you’re in tune or not. And with a frequency range that supports up to six-string basses, you can be sure that your low-notes will always be in tune!

Use the balanced output to send a signal to a PA or a sound engineer when playing live, or use it as a high–quality bass preamp in the studio when
recording, taking advantage of the tone controls and TonePrint features. Choose between sending a pre signal for a completely clean and direct sound
or chose post to get the flavor of the amp.

Use your phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session,
combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone! If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it groovin’ and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.

BH800 features a wide range of TonePrint effects, from Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver to our custom SpectraComp & BassDrive – and they all
sound killer! TC Electronic even combined TonePrints that let you enjoy the power of two TonePrints in one!

Cut and Boost at Different Frequencies. Tailored Specifically for Bass for ultra-precise tonal shaping.

I purchased this amp expecting it to sound like a more powerful bh250 and this amp delivered in spades. The amp sounds very clean and strong. I have loaded up the first tone print with Spectracomp and the second one with the combined Spectracomp and Drive tone print. On the gig I use tone print one for a very tight and round sound with a lot of heft on the note and the second tone print for that huge SVT like feeling that the combined tone print delivers. The combined also gives you a harmonic dynamic that sounds very nice but the Spectracomp alone really gives a solid thump in the chest that is very pleasing to feel. It is very nice to be able to switch between both effects with the press of a button on the Switch 3 foot switch. I also use the Classic Chorus on occasion when playing Nirvana's Come as you Are. The volume appears to be linear but I have not been able to test it out yet as at 12:00 it is pretty thunderous and too loud to test at home and even at the clubs we play in. I start to get dirty looks from the bar staff. It really is a special amp. On a side note, I purchased this amp after returning a Bugera Veyron because that amp sounded very thin, loud but thin. Not the BH800, this amp has no trouble cutting through a band mix. The notes are just so pronounced. I am a very happy camper.
