Top quality tf rs fine ear

Ingo vom Bodensee, 01.03.2017
Since mid-2011, I am the proud owner of a BG100 Bass Cub and have been enthusiastic about sound, processing and the possibility to drive 2-channel (E-Bass and Upright in parallel without re-plugging).

As the BG100 loudspeaker unfortunately only for rehearsals and performances without drums, my potent but not so convincing cube of another manufacturer due to repair failed shortly, I have used the chance and sound quality, 2-channel possibility and higher output in the form of BG-400 to order.

I'm excited.
I'm excited.
I'm excited.

Used clean sound for the lover with fine ears.
If you like it, you need an effect device or buy something else.

Unfortunately it does not work with Phil Jones to combine 300W (BG-400) with the weight of 6kg (BG100 Bass Cub). But this is also rather utopian.

The sound

Franck G., 21.03.2017
I have long sought to replace an old Ampeg 4x10 of 35kgs by a lighter amp but powerful enough to cover the small / medium scenes. I've watched MarkBass, Ampeg, Hartke, Ashdown, EBS, etc ... All have their advantage but none of those I've tested has a sound as pure as the Phil Jones BG-400 ...
The HP 5 'gives an unmatched feel of play thanks to a fast response and a bluffing performance relative to their size. No matter what volume is used, the sound remains clear, distortion-free and incredibly pure. My acolytes are as satisfied as me because we never heard the bass so clearly. What sound !!!

I coupled the BG-400 with the cabinet C4 of the same brand to reach the theoretical 500w and the result is bluffing: a pure sound of the Si severe to the Ground 24th box. And everything goes on, my basses with Humbuckers, simple coils, fretless, etc ... and every time, it sounds incredibly well. The DI output is very very clean and it accepts well the effects (attention to the distortion anyway because it is so faithful that we sometimes have small surprises with his favorite pedals).

If I had to make a single reproach, it would be the sensitivity of the HP which have a rather low in terms of pure power. Do not expect to have 300w effective in this little combo, it is nothing! Even with the cab C4 for a theoretical total of 500w, I do not reach the power of a transistor amp given for 180w of a German brand well known for its incredible rates (B ....... R) but The quality is so amazing and the power enough for small / medium scenes that I found my new companion :)

The weight is really well distributed and the 20kgs do not feel, I carry the amp and the cab in one time: D

A big bravo and thank you to Thomann to market this little-known brand in France.
