The TC Electronic BH800 Bass Amp Head follows in the footsteps of the popular TC Electronic BH250 Bass Amp. With a small lightweight construction but filled with the latest tech that helps you get some incredible bass sounds. Boasting 800w of power this amp will be able to fill some large venues when put through a large speaker cabinet so you don't need to worry about if your amp can handle the size of the venue.
TC Electronic introduced toneprint to their pedals a few years ago and now it is available on these new bass amps. With the ability to beam in 2 different effects to this amp from your phone or computer that can be independently controlled and switched between using the front panel toggle.
You can load chorus, drive, compression and much more into your bass sound with this feature minimizing the amount of pedals you need to take to your gig.
6 String Tuner
With all TC Electronic amplifiers you get a built in tuner and this one can even handle 6 string basses tuned BEADGC. Don't worry about having to bring a pedal to mute your rig while tuning either as the BH800 contains a mute switch to keep your tuning silent.

Here's what TC Electronic say about the BH800 Bass Head
Power To The People

With BH800 we're building on everything that people loved about the original BH250, by simply throwing in more of what made the amp so innovative. With the BH800 you get 800 Watts of raw power and all the punch and creative features your heart could possibly desire, without compromising the super-portable and lightweight build. With the intelligent EQ section and the option of driving several cabs at once, BH800 is the natural choice for every modern bass player out there!

Tone Is Where The Heart Is
We don't know what magical schools of bass-wizardry our engineers attended, but boy do they know tone. With the BH800's intelligent EQ section we've once again placed ourselves 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 BH800'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
BH800 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 BH800's ultra-precise onboard 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.
