[Musikmesse] Warwick Bass Combo Amps
Warwick has released a series of new combo amps designed for bassists who don't need ear splitting volume
The BC150 and BC300
These two combos are designed to fit either in the rehearsal room at home or on a small stage, as a personal monitor or even at large venues when a wall of amp stacks seems a bit too much.
Both feature a 15-inch Bass Driver and adjustable compressors, along with the standard features available on all the BC combos. There are a few key differences between the two as well as separating them from the rest of the BC range.
The BC150 includes a sweepable mid in its 3 band equalizer to ramp up the 150 watts of power inside. The BC300 adds the 10 band equalizer, bass/treble controls and other features which can be found on the WA300. It also has a cabinet that is designed to be deeper both sonically and physically and, of course, a more powerful speaker driver. Last but not least it has Warwick's new HF bullet.
The Hellborg series of amps have been both the inspiration and source of circuitry for these beauties, the company says.
The BC20, BC40 and BC80
BC20, BC40 and BC80 are for the beginner but can also work as practice amps.
Each has a purpose designed 8, 10 and 12-inch bass driver respectively and a high frequency horn. BC 20 and 40 comes with a 3 band equalizer, automatic compressor, passive and active inputs, auxiliary input for your music player of choice and headphone connection.
The bass reflex cabinet is generously sized.
The BC80 packs a little more punch with a 4 band EQ and an adjustable compressor and, of course, as the size increases, the bass descends.
All speaker drivers are custom designed.
