Monster Shrunken HeadAre you a bass player with a jones for power and an aversion to heavy lifting? We have your prescription: the TC Electronic RH750 Bass Head. TC has been ground zero in the trend towards small, massively powered bass amps. Their latest serves up a mind-boggling 750 watts (1200 peak), staggering tonal range, and a smorgasbord of features you can really use. Even more amazing, is that they've pulled this off in a roadworthy package the size of a thimble (alright, maybe a tad bigger).
Aside from the bone-crunching power, the RH750's got an onboard chromatic tuner, three user presets, and some serious tone-shaping chops. TweeterTone is a TC innovation that lets you nail the HF component of your sound. Go from vintage warm to glassy modern with a flick of the dial. Bassists worldwide are lovin' SpectraComp, which works its magic on each string individually to give you smooth, even compression across your entire bass. TubeTone allows you to twirl in just the right amount of tubularity. TC has nailed the preamp and power amp emulation with dead-nuts realism. Speaking of preamps, the RH750 is fitted with the same preamp as TC's top-of-the-line bass amp. As a final sound-shaper, you get powerful 4-band EQ.
If you've never had presets on an amp, you'll come to appreciate them (the RH750 gives you three). Customizing bass sounds and being able to recall them instantly can be a real gig-saver. The onboard chromatic tuner is another feature you'll wonder how you ever got along without. Hit the mute button - it mutes the speaker and DI outputs while tuning, and always displays the tuning state of your bass.
The RH750 is a jaw-dropper, and if you're in the market for a high-power bass head, it should definitely be on your short list. It's unclear how TC managed to load ginormous power, monster tone, and ultra-useful features into a head and shrink it down to this small size. Maybe they used a secret Voodoo potion.
