TC Electronic BG500 - 210
TC Electronic this has an amplification transistor.
This is a 500W 2 "10.
The input jack is both active and passive, can be used if desired auxiliary cabinet, or add an amp head. (What I find a bit useless for a combo ... but it all depends on the use of each).
We find a connection in Aux. and headphone.


The manual is clear and easy to use the amp, it quickly adapts to the setting, which is a big advantage.

The choice of pretty well diversified.


I begin by discussing the effects of this combo:

SpectraComp it. gives more attack and a more dry the instrument is really great for Groove or Slap!
He is included 3 buttons EQ efficient enough.
-The Tweetertone I find particularly effective combined SpectraComp. whether for a game with a finger or plectrum.
-The Tubetone is the effect that interests me the most for my style of play Rock, Blues Rock. It reproduces very well the effect of tube amps, but unfortunately without missing a few natural for my taste.

I tried it with a low active and passive bass. I find it excellent for active bass (Ibanez ATK300)! But for a passive bass that's another story ... I am equipped with a passive bass (Gretsch Hollow Body), and unfortunately my bass loses a bit of his personality and woody tones.


I use it for two years.

I think it is a perfect amp to work at home or in rehearsal and elsewhere I recommend 2 "10 has seen a better definition of the speaker diameter smaller and therefore accurate and it grows sufficiently in serious to shake the walls, or even drop: D

I find it less attractive for concerts even though it is an amp sound, efficient and powerful.

I do not regret my choice, but my needs and tastes have evolved sounds I therefore requires more than most of the effects included in this combo, and I prefer a real tube amp.

This remains a very good value for what I think is excelent for home use and repetition.

Any amplification transistor simulator lamp (and not a gadget)
with peak power 500 watts to 1000 watts!
built-in tuner with mute
Spectracom compressor
Adjustable tweeter and débrayble


It's really a great amp! the volume pot is sensitive and there is a great sound quickly.
ability to adjust the contours pre-recorded
the manual is sketchy, but this amp is quite intuitive


I play blues-rock and nickel! especially with all the simulator lamp ... happiness
I play with a precision standart U.S., Mex JazzBass mofifiée, rockbass Corvette 5 string.


I use it for 5 months! happiness!

a negative point when even finish the installation but it seems I am alone in being annoyed.
the tweeter was so badly screwed vibration noise when I played + a button (outline) which fell after 24 hours of use.
Namely that is guaranteed for 2 years, I did get service for over worries of happiness!

A value for money without hesitation I will ever amazing choice! I do not regret my trace elliot.

I had a trace elliot bcp less versatile when my return is guaranteed loaned gallien hybrid (what a shit on the side)

missing wheels on it but the metal side handle his very convenient.

TC Electronic BG500 - 210
Combo Transistor 500 W
Emulation lamps preamp and amplifier
Compressor SpectraComp
2 hp 10 inch eminence
3 presets storable
Headphone and DI
All the buttons are in front, including the adjustment of tweeter. Except the power button.
All information about the TC Electronic website

32 kg, it weighs its weight, some find it too heavy compared to the amps high end brand.
Me it does not bother me. It is almost reassuring.
And it is also less plastic.
Handy handles on the sides (it's better than a handful on top).


Simple setup.
Knob one for the compressor.
Light manual (downloadable from the site) in French.
Its got a very quick, easy and memorable.


Very wide range of sounds obtained from the infrabass that shook the walls, sounds very fat and saturated rocks, through sounds very well defined and precise.
No need to add effect.
500W that leaves come. I play through the volume to 3 with a drummer and a guitarist.
I play mostly pick. The compressor is excellent (it catches up with my game not always perfect when I sing), with moderation.


Used for 3 months.
I tried ampeg (big disappointment, finishing very cheap combos) Markbass (good but no compression and then more expensive) Hartke (I do not know what it's worth Hydrive b100 sound enough but the metal).
I love her.
This is not the sexiest amp, enough in fact happening everywhere (I'm not talking about weight). In any case an exemplary finish. The solid.
Value for money: the quality is there and there are more expensive, so ... that's good.
Anyway I love.

Stephbasse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent"

TC Electronic BG500 - 210
It's a transistor amp, but with a real purpose lamp that gives a very round if desired.
Opportunity to connect directly to the mixer.
It has a power of 500 W and without playing too much we already feel the vibrations.


Easy to use, can record 3 sounds.
It has a wide variety of sounds: treble that one little crack to slap or mitigated to a rounder sound, which is really soft and cozy, if desired ... Opportunities within very short.


With a good bass (for me Musicman Stingray 5), I think we can play tt music style thanks to its large range of possibilities.
Note that the cash fine mega bass of the 5th string.
For my part with the effect "Tubetone" which gives its lamps.
I most often a well rounded but not stifled that gives accuracy to my game with the clarity of sound.


Very good value for money for this amp that do not look, but ensures that serious!
I've used Hartke 350W, 1 amp 3 bodies by repeating, in a combo trace eliot 250w ... and others ...
For a simple combo .... it really enough to satisfy and meet the greatest number.
Try it!
