Amped Up Excellence
Expanding TC Electronic’s bass amp 2.0 line up, the new BH550 amplifier is the complete next-level model for those bass players who loved the feature set and compact lightness of BH250, but simply wanted more power. Building on the highly acclaimed RH series but in a more affordable package, this new amplifier is set to continue the success of the BH/BG250 series.
Featuring Dual TonePrint (foot-switchable via an optional Switch 3), aux input, headphone jack, high-end DI output (that can even be used without a speaker cab connected) and much more besides, all makes it a perfect companion for any bass player – live, in the studio, or simply practicing at home.

- Dual TonePrint signature bass effects (including compression, drive, octave, chorus and flanging)
- Built-in bass tuner

With BH550 TC Electronic is building on everything that people loved about the original BH250, by simply throwing in more of what made the amp so innovative. You get more power, more punch and more creative features without compromising with the original’s ultra-lightweight design. On top of that you get a highly intelligent EQ section, and a build in tuner. And you know what that means... total tonal bliss!
- TonePrint enabled – for a world of signature effects
- 550 Watts of raw power
TonePrint: Complete Creative Control
No longer is your creativity held back by some fixed set of built-in effects. With the innovative TonePrint technology you become the amp designer. So if you need a swirling vintage flanger or a TubeDrive for your next rock gig, or a compressor and a chorus when you play with your funk band, you simply just load them into the amp. This may sound surreal, but it’s THAT easy! TonePrint means signature effects made by the most awesome bass players around, like Victor Wooten, Duff McKagan, Nathan East and many more. These TonePrints are available for free - straight from your smartphone - and with 2 switchable TonePrint slots available, the tonal possibilities are virtually endless.
Art. Where Technology And Design Meet
Long gone are the days where bassists were the quiet dudes standing side of stage staring at their shoes pumping roots and fifths. Today’s bassist is versatile, expressive, loud and ready for his place in the spotlight. To perfectly support the needs of lovers of low-end, TC Electronic has designed the BH550 to fit the needs of busy bassists on the go. That means a lightweight, portable design, a killer EQ section and unlimited tonal versatility through TonePrint - plus an on-board tuner. So just like you, this amp was born to rock!
Tone Is Where The Heart Is
With the BH550’s intelligent EQ section TC Electronic has once again placed themselves far ahead of the tone-tailoring-curve. Behind the deceptively simple four-dial design lies a frequency range perfectly tuned for bass. So no matter if you like your sound nice and scooped, fat and groovy or filled with high-end sparkle the BH550’s tone controls will be sure to cut and boost in all the right places, leaving you sounding your best every time!
Backstage Pass - All Access
BH550 offers the perfect mix between weight and power, intuitive controls, TonePrint and an onboard tuner making it the must have tool for virtually any bassist.
The BH550’s ultra-precise on-board tuner is there when you need it. It’s always on, so you constantly have a clear read of whether you’re in tune or not. And with a frequency range that supports up to six-string basses, you can be sure that your low-notes will always be in tune!
Use the balanced output to send a signal to a PA or a sound engineer when playing live, or use it as a high–quality bass preamp in the studio when recording, taking advantage of the tone controls and TonePrint features. Choose between sending a pre signal for a completely clean and direct sound or chose post to get the flavor of the amp.
Plug & Play
Use your 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!
Late Night Jammin’
If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it groovin’ and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.
Your Vision, Your Sound
BH550 features a wide range of TonePrint effects, from Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver to SpectraComp & BassDrive – and they all sound killer! TC Electronic even has combined TonePrints that let you enjoy the power of two TonePrints in one!
