WNAMM11: Forge Your Bass Sound With The Blacksmith
TC Electronic introduce a new bass amp 14-Jan-11
Here's what TC has to say...
Bass amp 2.0 has just reached a high point. Blacksmith unites immense power and versatility, achieving raw excellence.
With Blacksmith on-stage, power is not an issue – large clubs, major venues or full-scale stadiums, Blacksmith covers it all. A massive 1600 watts delivers a huge bass tone that will follow the user's slightest moves while playing those hard-rocking bass lines and hammering riffs. Taking bass to a higher level
Blacksmith offers more than excessive power, with renowned Bass amp 2.0 features such as integrated chromatic bass tuner, refined tone-shaping tools including 4 bands of EQ, SpectraComp™ 'per string compression', TubeTone™ 'complete Tube pre- and power amp recreation' and TweeterTone™ 'intelligent HF control' as well as the unique 3 user-defined memories, Blacksmith takes bass amplification to a new level in more than one respect. 8, 4 or 2 ohms, your choice
Blacksmith is capable of handling cabinet combinations all the way down to 2 ohms, so ultimately, four RS410 cabinets could be fired up simultaneously – that's 16 x 10" or 8.7 square foot of speaker cones blasting air at the bass player standing in front of the rig... Better put that foot on the monitor to keep upright. Blacksmith Main Features:
