TC Electronic's BH550 follows in the footsteps of their popular BH250 bass amp head, but promises more power and more features!

TC Electronic introduced TonePrint to their best-selling pedal range a few years ago, allowing guitarists and bassists to "beam" effect patches directly into their stompboxes via their smartphones and a dedicated app. This technology is right at your fingertips too with the BH550, but you have access to 6 leading TC effects rather than just 1! It's like having 6 pedals built into the amplifier.
With the ability to beam 2 different TonePrints into the BH550, these can be independently controlled and switched between using the front panel toggle. You can load chorus, drive, compression and much more into the BH550 with this feature — minimising the amount of pedals you need to take to your gig.
