TC Electronic announces Classic450, a brand new bass amp that’s all about pure tone and power.
After showing the world its bass amp credentials with the award-winning RH450, TC Electronic is going back to bass basics with Classic450 – an amp that offers players easy access to a wide range of classic tones, all via the versatile vintage tone control section. This is backed with TC Electronic’s Tubetone™ and multiband SpectraComp™ technology. TubeTone™ emulates every characteristic of a tube pre-amp and power-amp to deliver the full tube sound. SpectraComp™ virtually allows ‘per string’ compression that evens out the compression across all strings, delivering the quality, punchy sound that compressors are all about.
Classic450 delivers 450W output power via Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronic’s Active Power Management™. This ensures maximum power impact and that Classic450 behaves like a tube amp at full blast.
Classic450’s input section caters for both active and passive basses, while its fully transformer-balanced linedriver output, featuring a pre/post tone control switch, delivers a perfect reproduction of Classic450’s tone for both recording and live use, so it’s an ideal amp both on the road and in the studio.
Classic450 is fully compatible with all TC Electronic RS cabinets and it will drive any triple combination of the existing models (RS210, RS212, and RS410). And with its auto-sensing power supply operating from 90 to 240 volts, switching to whatever the local rating is, it is ideal for the gigging musician on tour.
Classic450 is what bass players have been missing: classic sounds, ease of use and raw power all in a compact and sturdy box that can be taken anywhere.
This new amp will start shipping end of june. Contact your local TC Distributor for local pricing.
