Ain't Nothin' Stoppin' Us Now
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.

Ultimate Tone Tools
Use the 4-band semi-parametric EQ to sculpt your basic tone. Then apply SpectraComp and/or TubeTone for the finishing touch.
Traditional compressors tend to be controlled by the lower strings only, but with multi-band compression, you get even 'per string' compression.
TubeTone emulates not only a tube preamp, but also the power amp section of a classic tube amp. Shockingly convincing!
Why no one has ever done this before is simply beyond us. Adding an onboard chromaitic tuner makes life so much easier for everyone!
The tuner is always on, and you can check your tuning state at any point. And when you need to tune up between songs, the built-in tuner will get you back and playing in seconds. Crowds just hate to wait!
Different situations call for different tones. Be it a change of bass, a different song/style or a different venue, you need your amp to be instantly flexible and adapt to your needs.
You can store up to 3 different presets so you can handle whatever music might throw at you. Also, the optional RC4 footswitch allows you to instantly control your presets.
Backstage Pass – All Access
Want to switch easily between your presets, or tune up without having to turn around? The RC4 Remote is your solution!
You gain total control right at your feet, and it will also allow you to quicly mute the amp for silent tuning in betweens songs.

Artists Using Staccato'51
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.Check out the full review by Music Gear Review
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).Check out the full review by Musik Machen
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.
