Mouloud Holywood's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amp Aladeen"

TC Electronic RH450
First of all, this notice as a post through an ISP situ Wadia, i respect the wadienne grammar. Pre censorship of the people, the Admiral Aladeen Gnral, watch what words remplacs by Aladeen are.

The RH450 is a class D amp 450 Aladeen ral. It is dot dun Aladeen 3 band, dun dun Aladeen and Aladeen. Laccordeur built-toues recognizes the finely Aladeen which is very convenient.

The connection is very Aladeen.


You plug in the Aladeen Aladeen and any dish, it sounds very clean. If we push a little Aladeen, we get a very nice grain. What is revolutionary, this is that once the Aladeen found can save the pRSET in Aladeen. There are three Aladeen available.

The Aladeen is really easy rgler with Aladeen paramtriques. The Aladeen franais but really is as useless as the vain efforts of Western imprialistes.

The rglages also as Aladeen that Aladeen, we can really move forward accompanied by this amp.


Easily obtained nimporte what dAladeen style, more neutral, no typ. We can highlight Aladeen or Aladeen choice. The Aladeen is still very taken and very Aladeen. Associated with the speakers of the brand, we get a very Aladeen Aladeen.

To say that Aladeen shoots from Ampeg Aladeen is to say that the Wadia enriched secret military quality plutonium. However, as the TC boxes contain Aladeen Celestion, explained the link Ampeg.


Jai test Aladeen., With a myriad of other models. Jai craqu for its large Aladeen, this is to say the quality of Aladeen.

The report Aladeen / Aladeen is extra from the drop Aladeen following the release of the RH750. Second hand, there are vritables Aladeen do.

TC Electronic RH450
Transistor amp ... with 3 presets, compressor, eq 4 band semi para DI output, AES ...
So why this catastrophic view?
See more!


It could not be simpler ...


Good diversity in the sounds, the final touches will be the choice of the associated speakers.
Especially good power into 4 ohms.


I'm bassist for over thirty years and I have tried many brands and models, I had the Mesa 400+ bass, Gallien ...

Since 04/2012 or I bought this head TC, I was very happy, especially weight and portability, but the sound ...
except perhaps the extreme fragility of buttons knobs on the front. (+ the first pedal LC4 command did not work, changed Guarantee)
They break the first pull / disassembly for cleaning the front and then they no longer hold the knobs. (Broken rear claws on almost all buttons, forced to paste) rather means for the "high end".
These buttons much beyond steel chassis, making them very vulnerable, especially for a so-called "nomadic" head!
The most serious is that behind these buttons there is an electronic card that is "cash received by the various efforts these pots too exposed!

So in September 2014, while the two-year warranty is exceeded for about six months, the drama!

Here I turn on the amp and ... more his or so:
rotten sound, but with very random and erratic over the settings of the knobs on the front panel answers ...

After consulting TC for the repair, I Mélisson shipped to Paris.
I just received their repair quote!
€ 273.76 to repair a head two and a half years! which is still € 700 (we can hope some reliability).
I say that it has not undergone any fall, it has not been abused or subjected to intensive tour and it is transported in a padded case, buttons up.

Verdict: the PCBA board, P18301, 1038 MAINBOARD to change ... The card receives the knobs ... Coincidentally ...

BIG design flaws!
If the metal shell was wider, the knobs are simply immune to shocks and stresses, and I think it is possible to design buttons that support the manipulation, even Behringer arrives!

After consulting TC not care! (Expired warranty) not recognized design fault ...
C'mon ...

I am very disappointed with the reliability of the head, however, was also very satisfying for me!

So, I think this will be my last product from TC, this damage is not a good pub!
A wise!

redcarp's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" excelent."

TC Electronic RH450
Class D amp type "numeric" with a power of 450W for about 4KG. Already, it is huge. But in addition it works fine without baffle. Thus making it also an excellent pre-amp for the studio. the equalization is monstrous efficiency, the compressor is formidable and integrated user presets true comfort on stage. the Tubetone (emulation lamp) is (for me) more anecdotal. Full connectivity is great and paradoxically simple, indeed it manages certain parameter alone as a great. And the low active or passive, it démerde is the same input, same for the impedance of the speaker or the supply voltage. At the rear an excellent preamp output that is because I use a lot: on small stage I'm too lazy to carry the cabinet industry and I therefore direct sound, big on stage, I put my back and baffle as j sends the output sound to the front, and I use it as a recording preamp directly into my sound card. These are characteristics that motivated my choice (size, weight, sound quality, versatility)


Super simple setup (fortunately, I am a musician, not an astronaut, too much button or parameter and I stress). I used the manual function to access the schedule by the shift knob but frankly, by adjusting the compressor, I use it almost not. I find it easy to have a good sound. this amp is a very straight, it fully respects the instrument. It is far from an all-tube Ampeg head, but it is not at all on the same philosophy. I play the instrument very different: an acoustic bass equipped with a sensor david pledge realist, a Lower fender jazz bass special frettless japan from 1986, it is equipped with a passive micro precision and a Jazz and a sandberg fretted with the same config micro but I use mainly actif.Le TC makes it sound either all these instrument.


I think this is an amp that can suit the style of music asset because it actually preserves the characteristic of the instrument that connects. most of the equalization is so effective that we do what we want.


I use it since February 10, 2012 So five months to date. I tried a dozen brands of diverse amp is the only one who rang my bass and my basses as well for that weight. I buy new and I do not regret my purchase. It's expensive, but it's good material I use for everything, amp (with speaker), DI (without cabinet), a mix of both, and pre amp for home recording. it allows me to sculpt my sound in all its configuration and with + or - 4KG I can really rest evaluate the duration of life of the class D amplifier I chose to trust a brand electronic Tc, we'll see.

<span style="font-weight: normal;">

For it features truly impressive and there's already everything you need on the web: (videos have front and back) (description of innovations) (connectors and external features)

4 Kg, 450 W into 4 Ohms minimum. Amplification: Active Power Management ™, Class-D amplifier that allows a performance equal to the return of any amp lamps. For them, the RH450 is a 450W all-tube amp or a transistor amp 800W. With just one speaker in 8 Ohms, so 300W is already enough to play with the 100 W lamp from scratch all thrived.

EQ 4 band semi-para, TubeTone, Gain, Master, compressor, volume preset tuner, mute.
3 presets to save its settings, for me it would have taken at least 5.

So 9 / 10 knowing that everything is very good.</span>

<span style="font-weight: normal;">


Despite the many functions, the configuration of the RH450 is simple and the manual available online in several languages ​​(including French) is accurate (and for once it is useful).
The main functions are accessible: gain with peak indicator, 4-band EQ and TubeTone can sculpt the sound.
By pressing the shift button you can access functions to more advanced: a compressor (which works), setting frequency and volume of EQ presets.
The tuner works continuously, it is as practical as a handheld tuner when it engages the mute mode.
Easily obtained a good sound and the settings are very effective.

After several hours of use, it is always as intuitive. I notice that the race was almost ineffective Master to the first stop. But hey, no one buys a powerful amp to play 1 / 10 volume (or when using the headphone output !)...


Frankly versatile, I got all kinds of sound I was looking for. (Blues, jazz, rock, funk, rhythm'n'blues, reggea), the treble is clear.
I have not managed to find one for his slap right away (in a 1 / 2 H, so little time), but there are many videos with that amp slappeurs. TubeTone allows the sounds or even saturated fats by pushing a little. Without TubeTone was defined sounds great but not really hi-fi: the RH450 is really a small grain.
JazzBass and Corvette $ $ 's proof.

Edit: for the slap, that's it. Try more with Precision: there is serious!


I tested and compared with a stack MarkBass Little Mark Tube for 3 / 4 of an hour. So I tried the MarkBass, of Ashdown, Trace of Eliot, the EBS, SWR, Ampeg's, the EDEN, the Hiwatt, Fender and ...............

I chose the TC as I search the versatility and the head is ultra-versatile and intuitive: I have found many of the sounds I need in seconds. Also the build quality is as good sound quality.
However it is unfortunate to offer only three presets on an amp as versatile.

That's an opinion (a little) more objective than what can be found on the manufacturer's website and in the mags.
