Perfect for the pragmatic bass player. The TC Electronic BQ500 is the lightest bass head you will ever carry. And it'll still deliver massive punchy tones. 

Weighing in at 2.3kg, the BQ500 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 500W 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 BQ500 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. 

Practicality

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 BQ500 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.
