TonePrints

Nothing But Good Vibes

A lot of you guys have requested that we make the killer tones from our Helix Phaser and Viscous Vibe pedals available for the amps, and since these effects sound nothing short of amazing on bass, we don't blame ya. So here you go! After the update, you'll get all the swirly and swooshy goodness from the pedals, including a bunch of unique tones made especially for bass.

Smack My Pitch Up!

Yes people, it's finally here! The high to your low, the up to your down, the yin to your yang, the mac to your cheese... Okay, we don't know where we're going with this, but with the update you now get access to an amazing octave up TonePrint that tracks like a dream. On top of that we've made some cool combined TonePrints that mix octave up with other sweet effects for unprecedented inspiration.

How Does It Work?

You're probably excited out of your mind right now and just want to get jammin' as fast as possible. We'll get there, we promise, but there's just a few steps you need to follow first. First and foremost it's important to note that this update doesn't work on the BG250-115 MK1 (the original 115 BG-combo with only 1 TonePrint slot). So as long as you have either one of the new BG-combos or one of our BH-amp heads, you're good to go.

Update procedure:

  1. Get the amp into boot mode by pressing and holding the Util button on the back, while powering on your amp.
  2. Connect your amp to your Mac or PC via USB
  3. Launch the update program and simply follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. Enjoy!

The New Effect Types

Let's have a look at the new cool effect types that you can load to your amp via USB or the Free TonePrint App for Android and iPhone.

 

Helix Phaser

Phasers and bass go together like Peanutbutter and Jelly, Batman and Robin, Kanye West and Kanye West, Cookies and... okay, what we're trying to say is that it just works! Whether you want a smooth vocal-like phaser for those funk grooves or a slow distorted sweep for your psychedelic moments, the organic swooshes transported from our popular Helix Phaser, and tuned perfectly for bass, are sure to hit the spot.

Viscous Vibe

These beautiful swirly tones are taken straight from our popular Viscous Vibe pedal, and have been molded to fit the world of bass to a tee!

Octave Up

You've tried the sub, and you know it rules. Now here's the up, and guess what... it flippin' rules as well! Tracks like a dream all the way down to that low-B and will give you everything from smooth organ-like tones to the illusion of having a rippin' guitarist backing up all of your notes.

Combined TonePrints

You'll find everything from nice bread & butter tones, like drive mixed with compression, to completely otherworldly effect combinations that will help push your creativity to new inspiring hights.
