    Product Description

    Perfect for the pragmatic bass player. The TC Electronic BQ250 is the lightest bass head you will ever carry. And it'll still deliver massive punchy tones. 

    Weighing in at 2.3kg, the BQ250 micro head has been designed with portability clearly at the forefront. Take it from practice, to studio and to the stage in your backpack with no hassle at all. It's roadworthy too thanks to an impressive 250W inside its rugged steel casing. 

    Four-band EQ

    Just because it's small doesn't mean it hasn't got the quality to match bigger beasts. the BQ250 packs Class-D amplifier technology controlled over a four-band EQ; bass, lo-mid, hi-mid and treble. An added thrust knob brings in the Mosfet preamp compressor circuit that sets the dynamic range. This can take your tone to the next level by emulating real tube power.

    The passive/active switch optimises the preamp input for either active or passive pickups. You'll get the best tonal response whatever bass you're playing. 


    Beyond it's size, TC Electronic have added some handy features to make this one of the most simple amps to plug in and play. A DI output lets you hook the BQ250 up to the front of house for the most stress free gig setups ever. There's also an aux slot in the back and speaker emulation to plug headphones in for quiet practising.

    Very different from my old amp and not as big a range of sounds but incredible value for money - perfect as a back up for a main amp

    Mr Andy Bradshaw24th Oct 2020

    I bought this to use to record with as it has an XLR output. I really like the sound quality and versatility of the amp - and it is so well made! I have found TC Electronic's products always to be reliable and built to a high standard. I would recommend this.

    Mini but mighty Bass amp. I have this paired with a single TC electronic BC208 cabinet and it produces a bright crisp sound with plenty of punchy low end. Very sensitive EQ and built in compressor works well. Overall a great amp for the price!
