Blacksmith Bass Amp from TC Electronic is Now Shipping

TC Electronic continue their “Bass Amp 2.0” concept with the new 1600 watt Blacksmith which comes complete with chromatic bass tuner, refined tone-shaping tools including 4 bands of EQ, SpectraComp ‘per string compression’, TubeTone ‘complete Tube pre- and power amp recreation’ and TweeterTone ‘intelligent HF control’ as well as the unique 3 user-defined memories.

Apart from the green house gas producing 1600 watts of power, the availability of 3 different presets is a handy feature when it comes to swapping bass guitars during a performance – now you’ll instantly have the right tone ready when you change basses. Of course you can also use the presets with one bass, but for different styles such as changing between using a pick and slapping.
