TC Electronic News

The ultimate in Digital Effects, Reverb and Dynamics Systems, Audio Mastering Processors, Computer Recording Solutions, Guitar Effects Processors and Pedals, and Broadcast Loudness Processor



Over the past few years, TC Electronic has revolutionised what bass guitarists can expect from their amplifers. Now, with the launch of their new BLACKSMITH bass head, the TC team has reset the standard once again.

With BLACKSMITH on-stage, power simply isn't 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 your slightest move while playing those hard-rocking bass lines and hammering riffs.

Taking bass to a higher level

The TC 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-band EQ, SpectraComp™ 'per string compression', TubeTone™ 'complete Tube pre- & power amp re-creation' 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…it’s your choice

Blacksmith is capable handling cabinet combinations all the way down to 2 ohms, so ultimately, you could fire up four RS410 cabinets simultaneously - that's 16 x 10” or 8.7 square foot of speaker cones blasting air in your direction... You'd better put that foot on the monitor to keep standing!

BLACKSMITH Main Features:

  • Power - 1600 watts (4500 watts peak).
  • Presets - 3 user-defined presets.
