The Revolution Is Just Warming Up!
When we introduced Bass Amp 2.0, the world took notice in ways they've never done before. It was a smash success and ever since we've been thinking of ways to push things forward.
What we've come up with is two combos that combine tons of raw
power with stunning tone shaping tools and an impressive list of
unconventional features. Meet BG500 115 and BG500 210.
- 500 Watts of Raw Power
- Bass Amp 2.0 Features
- Different Speaker Configurations
No matter how you look at it, power matters. Bass has historically been an instrument of power and authorithy and with BG500, you can rest assured there is always plenty of power to go around.
The Future of Bass. Now.
What does Bass Amp 2.0 mean? It means bassamps that make sense. That have a tuner and presets, realistic bassdrive and 'per string' compression, I/Os that are common in modern times and geared towards the busy musician on the go. In short, Bass Amp 2.0 is you.

In testing this particular unit, I utilized 4-, 5-, and 6- string basses, and was pleased in all accounts with the range of sonic quality. (...) The BG500 offers a few features worth mentioning. The most obvious is its ability to store and recall three different EQ presets. It’s something I’ve never really desired in an amp, but that is surely because I never had that option on any I have owned. This feature could certainly come in handy on cover-band gigs that require frequent switching between EQ settings.Check out the full review by Bass Player
It's very hard to believe that so much sound comes from a relatively small box. It's a warm, defined, friendly sound, too, one situated comfortably between TC's RH450 and Staccato '51 heads -- not really hi-fi when set flat, but certainly not muddy or woofy. I never ran the master past noon with the Gain control set around 11 o'clock in a room that seats 500 and, in fact, found myself actually turning down a few times.Check out the full review by Music Gear Review
The BG 500 is a great combo for all styles. It gives a jazz combo bassist enough sound to be heard over the set. There is theoretically enough stage volume for rockers and with the balanced-out, you can throw it into the mix to run through the house PA, giving you a huge presence. With all the features on the BG 500, you’ll surely be able to dial-in any tones you want. And you’ll never forget an amp setting, thanks to three memory banks.Check out the full review by No Treble
