TC and bass player Francis Rocco Prestia have joined forces to make Staccato'51 — a custom-tuned version of the RH450 that's been made to Rocco's specification and ear.
- Classic Tone section — Based on the classic virtues of bass tone stacks, tailored to Rocco’s liking.
- TubeTone — TubeTone emulates every characteristic of both pre-amp and power amp to deliver the full tube sound. Rocco has this dialled in so the TubeTone gives him to growl when diggin’ in.
- SpectraComp — A regular compressor tends to be dominated by the lower string, but Staccato’51's SpectraComp technology allows virtually 'per string’ compression that evens out the compression across all strings.
- Integrated Chromatic Tuner — Ultrafast chromatic bass tuner built in.
- Instrument Input — Covers both Active and Passive pickup instruments.
- Integrated Linedriver Output — The Staccato’51's DI is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum.
- Speaker Output and Linedriver Mute.
- Effects Loop — Insert point (pre-amp out, power amp in).
- Auto-sensing PSU — The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts.
- Speaker output — Combined Speakon and ¼" speaker output.
- 450w power handling (800w peak).
- Staccato’51 is compatible with all RS cabinets and it will drive any triple combination of the existing models (RS112, RS210, RS212, RS410).
Pricing & Availability
$1559 MSRP (USD), the Staccato’51 will be available from October.
