Colossal wallop...

Paul8308, 22.02.2015
...this is indeed a mighty thing! This head just puts out gobs of power - I run a Barefaced Big Twin - not the most efficient cab in the known cosmos - the Blacksmith drives it with ease - I am happy that I will never need more power than this head puts out - if I did - I would be going through FOH.

As usual - we must take TC's infamous power output claims with a pinch of salt (pinch? - handfull more like) but to be fair - this has watts in abundance - I beleive the continuous RMS output of this head into 4r is around 975 watts? - I may be wrong?

The three presets are brilliant - easy to use and truly usefull - get the footswitch with it to get the most use from these natch!

The compression and overdrive (tubedrive) Well - the comp I dont like I am afraid - it feels a bit too severe even on low settings - but it may suit you? The drive is pretty good and certainly gives me more than enough grit.

The eq section is comprehensive and does everything I need - as its semi-parametric I have had no problem taming rooms when the odd frequency is giving me problems.

The build quality (apart from one area) is fabulous - it really is well put together - everything that is - apart from the knobs - which are cheap plastic affairs - which fall off. To be fair - TC sent me a new set without hesitation - its a shame though that on an item like this a corner has been cut that wouldnt have cost a great deal? I have considered replacing the nobs with metal ones. Also - I am slightly nervous that the pot shafts themselves are plastic - I would have thought metal would have been the way to go? - this aint a toy after all? All that aside - it is a Lovely Thing that - I feel - will probably out-last me!

All the switch's have a good feel to them.

The amp also looks the nuts - there is a row of tiny leds around the control knobs which change depending on the travel of the knob - uber cool.

The 'sound' of the head - what can I say - it IS different to the Ashdowns/Ampegs/Laneys etc etc I have used over the years - but to be frank - its so subjective - safe to say it is pretty balanced through the tone range with cracking definition.

Ultimately tho - I am just confident that whatever the band/venue/music - I am gonna be able to walk all over the guitarists and drummer (this also has a fair bit to do with the Big Twin of course) the sound is never wheezy or compressed at high levels - it just gets louder and louder - no issues.

I would not need anything more powerful - although I have actually bought a TC BH800 to go with a smaller cab for small venues and rehearsals!

Get to gig - set up - and forget all about the amp - just play and have fun - what could be better.

All the best!

Marc1575, 25.12.2013
Der Amp wiegt ob seiner Größe fast nichts, hat viel zu viel (geil! :-) Power und ist durch die elektronische Soundmanipulation extrem vielfältig.

Keiner der Sounds ist wirklich schlecht, egal ob bei passiven oder aktiven Bässen. Ich spiele die Kombi aus 2x12" und zwei Stück 2x10" - und das geht sehr ab, mehr als 11 Uhr habe ich bisher niemandem zugemutet. Ich empfehle ein Case für den Amp.

Und beim Preis sollte man darauf achten, dass der "zu schwanken" scheint - ich habe knapp 1k Euro bezahlt, aktuell scheint der Kurs wieder gestiegen zu sein.

Aber egal: Eine echte Empfehlung bleibt er.
