There was one reason to make RH450: making bass better. There's a dedicated bass team at TC, guys that gig, record, rehearse, live and breathe bass. So when they got a chance to finally do an amp, they built 'the best amp possible' from the ground up.

The result is a compact, powerful amp with a set of features so advanced we like to think of them as Bass Amp 2.0.

  • SpectraComp
  • TubeTone
  • 3 Presets
  • Built-in Bass Tuner

Ultimate Tone Tools

Use the 4-band semi-parametric EQ to sculpt your basic tone. Then apply SpectraComp and/or TubeTone for the finishing touch.

Traditional compressors tend to be controlled by the lower strings only, but with multi-band compression, you get even 'per string' compression.

TubeTone emulates not only a tube preamp, but also the power amp section of a classic tube amp. Shockingly convincing!

Tune Up

Why no one has ever done this before is simply beyond us. Adding an onboard chromaitic tuner makes life so much easier for everyone!

The tuner is always on, and you can check your tuning state at any point. And when you need to tune up between songs, the built-in tuner will get you back and playing in seconds. Crowds just hate to wait!


Different situations call for different tones. Be it a change of bass, a different song/style or a different venue, you need your amp to be instantly flexible and adapt to your needs.

You can store up to 3 different presets so you can handle whatever music might throw at you. Also, the optional RC4 footswitch allows you to instantly control your presets.
