With BH550 TC are building on everything that people loved about the original BH250, by simply throwing in more of what made the amp so innovative. You get more power, more punch and more creative features without compromising with the original’s ultra-lightweight design. On top of that you get a highly intelligent EQ section, and a build in tuner. And you know what that means... total tonal bliss!

Show full description »

Gone are the days when a bassist simply had to accept a heavy beast with all the tonal options of a 70's HiFi. TC give you something creative, loud and light with plenty of attack and presence for the stage.

Featuring Dual TonePrint (foot-switchable via an optional Switch 3 below), aux input, headphone jack, high-end DI output (that can even be used without a speaker cab connected) and much more besides, all makes them a perfect companion for any bass player – live, in the studio, or simply practicing at home.

TonePrint: Complete Creative Control

No longer is your creativity held back by some fixed set of built-in effects. With the innovative TonePrint technology you become the amp designer. So if you need a swirling vintage flanger or a TubeDrive for your next rock gig, or a compressor and a chorus when you play with your funk band, you simply just load them into the amp. This may sound surreal, but trust us, it’s THAT easy!TonePrint means signature effects made by the most awesome bass players around, like Victor Wooten, Duff McKagan, Nathan East and many more. These TonePrints are available for free - straight from your smartphone - and with 2 switchable TonePrint slots available, the tonal possibilities are virtually endless.

Art. Where Technology And Design Meet

Long gone are the days where bassists were the quiet dudes standing side of stage staring at their shoes pumping roots and fifths. Today’s bassist is versatile, expressive, loud and ready for his place in the spotlight. To perfectly support the needs of our fellow lovers of low-end, we’ve designed the BH550 to fit the needs of busy bassists on the go. That means a lightweight, portable design, a killer EQ section and unlimited tonal versatility through TonePrint - plus an on-board tuner. So just like you, this amp was born to rock!

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 BH550’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 BH550’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

BH550 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.

Bass Tuner

The BH550’s ultra-precise on-board 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!

Balanced Output

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.

Plug & Play

Use your phone, MP3 player or similar to jam along your favorite tracks. Just plug it into the AUX input and you’re ready for a rehearsal session,

combining your favorite music with your favorite bass tone!

Late Night Jammin’

If you like jamming late at night, plug in a pair of headphones for a silent session. Keep it groovin’ and keep your family and neighbors happy at the same time.

Your Vision, Your Sound
BH550 features a wide range of TonePrint effects, from Chorus, Flanger, Vibrato, Octaver to our custom SpectraComp & BassDrive – and they all sound killer! We even have combined TonePrints that let you enjoy the power of two TonePrints in one!

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
