The word legend gets thrown around so easily these days. But Tower Of Power bassist Rocco Prestia is truly worthy of the monniker, both as bass player for funk legends Tower Of Power and as an individual with his invaluable pioneering of 'fingerstyle funk' bass sounds as we know them today.

  • Built from the ground up to Rocco Prestia's wishes and ideas
  • Vintage Tone Control (voiced by Rocco Prestia)
  • SpectraComp & TubeTone
  • 3 Presets


RH450 にはトーンを緻密に、かつ多面的にコントロールするための様々なツールが用意されています。トーン形成の主となるツールは 4 バンド EQ で、ベース/ロー・ミッド/ハイ・ミッド/トレブルで構成されます。目的に応じて、派手なトーン・チェンジにも、また高精度で精密なファインチューニングにも対応します。また、EQ に加えて、SpectraComp™/TubeTone™/TweeterTone™ の 3 つのトーン形成機能が用意されています。


ほとんどのアンプはチューナー・アウトを装備していますが、これは外付けのチューナーを必要とすることを意味しており、セットアップをシンプルに保つ観点から決して理想的とは言えません。RH450 はチューナーを内蔵しています。いたってシンプルな発想でありながら、一度経験すれば手放せなくなる機能の一つです。RH450 のチューナーは常時オンで、曲間で素早くチューニングを行えます。


ベースを持ち替えたり、曲によって演奏スタイルが大幅に変わることがあれば、アンプのセッティングをプリセットとして切り替えられることのメリットをご理解いただけることでしょう。RH450 は 3 つのユーザー・メモリーを記憶させることができますので、ベースを持ち替えるなどの場面にも余裕で対応します。TubeTone™のオーバードライブ/SpectraComp™ を使ったスラップ用のトーン/昔ながらのクラシックなビンテージ・トーンを切り替える、と言った使い回しが可能です。

Backstage Pass – All Access

Built–in Bass Tuner

The on–board bass tuner is chromatic, and it’s always on. In other words, you can check up on your tuning state at any time – even at a quick glance in the middle of a tune. And tuning up between songs is faster then ever. Crowds just hate waiting!

3 Presets

Do you ever play different basses – or tunes that need unique tones – on the same gig? You can create 3 presets tailored for e.g. a Jazz Bass, a P Bass and an active bass, or it could be for Rock, Slap or Upright bass. It’s all up to you, and you’ll find that swapping basses on the stage is faster than ever!


TubeTone gives you that vintage feel of an all–tube bass amp. Rather than fitting a single tube in the preamp section, we have designed a pristine circuit that emulates not only a tube preamp, but also a complete tube power amp. Add subtle tube warmth or crank it all the way up for dirty drive tone.


Multi–band compression – the musical way to control dynamics. SpectraComp can be subtle or downright aggressive, but either way you get the best bass compressor ever made. Single–band compressors tend to be controlled only by the lower strings, but with SpectraComp you virtually get ‘per string compression’.

Flexible Tone Controls

The EQ section is semi–parametric on all 4 bands. You may never need to use the semi–parametric option, but if you should happen to be at a venue that requires surgical frequency adjustment, just hit the Shift button and define exactly at which frequency each EQ–band should cut or boost.

Late Night Jammin’

If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it grooving, and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.

Power Up Anywhere

The ultimate in convenience for the traveling musician. The built–in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier if you’re on the road as there’s no complicated fuse changing – just plug and play wherever you are!

Effects Loop

Use the Send/Return connectors to hook up external effects. Traditionally, dry/wet effects such as chorus or reverb are used in a Send/Return system, but today there are no rules. If you want to experiment with adding effects like drive or filter modulation ‘on top’ of your clean signal, this is the way to go.

Line Driver

The built–in DI is state–of–the–art. In many cases superior to external DI boxes, so if you need to send a signal to an FOH engineer, try this option first. You can also use it when recording in the studio, taking advantage of the flexible EQ section, SpectraComp and TubeTone.

Plug & Play

Use your iPod, phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session, combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone!

Artists Using Staccato'51


Music Gear Review
by Dave Molter

The Staccato ’51 may not sound as hi-fi as many of today’s modern, lightweight bass amps (Genz-Benz, Markbass, Gallien Krueger) when set up right out of the box, but that’s not what Rocco Prestia intended when he helped to revamp EQ points, add compression and dial in a little tube growl. This amplifier has a distinctive voice, one that hearkens back to the glory days when the Ampeg B15 “flip-top” was the amp of choice for discerning bassists both onstage and in the studio. Yet, with just a little tweaking, even non-geeks can find a hi-fi sound easily and – what’s even better — they can store that sound with the push of a button. The Staccato ’51 is not your father’s bass amp —it just sounds like it is.

With the new bass amp Staccato ´51 and the 4 x10“ cabinet RS410, TC Electronic brings an exciting alternative to the market. One for bass players that look for something a bit different. (Click below to watch the video review in German).

Staccato 51 is almost an all-inclusive package with special attention to bassists who travel a lot and therefore place high demands on the portability of their equipment. If you are looking for a highly portable and flexible bass amp, the Staccato 51 is highly recommended!
