TC Electronic

A pro-level head with plenty of clean power and precise tone control.

The TC Electronic RH450 Bass Amp Head is the company's first full bass rig. With 450W of Class-D power, the RH450 bass amp has the power to run multiple bass speaker cabinets and is especially effective when combined with the RS210 and RS212,

The TC Electronic RH450 amp can run any combination of up to 3 units. This bass amp head's features include an input that accepts passive or active instruments, 4 semi-parametric tone controls with light rings around each knob that make your settings visible even on dark stages, and with tone centers that can be adjusted. Other features include an integrated tuner that is precise and extremely easy to use. 3 user-memory locations let you store your favorite setups. A TubeTone circuit affects both the preamp and the output for realistic tube-amp character. SpectraComp technology provides multi-band compression that is even across all strings. I/O is comprehensive and includes an AES/EBU connection. Presets, Mute, and Tuner can be selected remotely with the RC4 floor controller sold separately.

Flexible tone control

The RH450 bass amp head has straightforward controls like you know them from traditional amps, voiced to give you plenty of tweaking options to nail the perfect tone. Chances are these are all you're going to need. However, if you're not fully satisfied with the default frequency areas, fear not—RH450 gives you the option to change the focus of each of the tone controls.

The nerdy term for this feature is semi-parametric bands, and it tweaks the "hidden parameters" to pinpoint a frequency you either want to remove or boost for each tone control and then store the settings.

TubeTone

Most transistor designs have tried to replicate tube sound using 1 small preamp tube, but they generally fail as they don't take into account the crucial characteristics of the full preamp and power amp sections—both of which are essential to the sound. TubeTone emulates all characteristics to deliver the full tube sound.

SpectraComp

A regular compressor tends to be dominated by the low string, but the RH450's SpectraComp technology produces multi-band compression that evens out the compression across all strings.

Onboard user memory banks

You might not use presets, but maybe you've never had the chance. Anyone who's used different basses on stage knows that a few user memories on your amp would be welcome. With the RH450 you can easily switch between, for example, your 4- and 5-string. Just plug in the bass and use the car-radio-style Store and Recall controls to easily switch between presets for your chosen model. There are 3 bass user memories, remote control access via the RC4 Control (sold separately), and visual indicators for Mute and the Tuner.

Rehearsal inputs

Playing any instrument on its own can be a little dull, but everyone needs time to practice, which is why RH450 has rehearsal inputs. This rear panel-mounted feature allows you to plug in your iPod, phone, computer or MP3 player via the supplied mini-jack to RCA cable adapter for easy practicing and playing along with recorded music. The headphone amp is a high quality model taken straight from TC Electronic's Studio Konnekt 48 and includes a speaker filter on the bass signal.

The RH450 from TC Electronic is built for bass players by bass players and draws upon decades of cutting-edge amp design and signal processing experience. The result is the RH450—the bass innovation that sets a new standard in excellence in bass amplification.
