HEAD type bass amplifier with both tube and transistor preamps and double power amp, working in BIAMP, STEREO or MONO modes. The switchable mode enables wide range of speaker cabinets to connect varying in impedance from 2 to 16 Ohm and handling power from 200 up to 750W. The amplifier uses a very efficient and at the same time easy to operate MLO system equalization control for fast and accurate sound tailoring. Unique OPTICAL LIMITER is built in for fast and noiseless operation. Possibility to “cross” the amplifier with an additional preamp. Connecting an external preamp creates a configuration of 2 selectable independent channels. The use of additional preamp brings a wide range of new sound creation opportunities: 2 identical panels with separate input control, tone, limiter and volume. Preferred tone shape, input sensitivity, tube saturation, volume and compression can be set for each channel independently and switched between the channels while playing. Also an external sound effect can be connected to each of the channels. A specially designed TAURUS TX-Cross dedicated preamp is used to create the stereo system.


Power output: 750W RMS / 4ohm , 200W RMS / 8ohm


Operation modes:
MONO: 750W RMS /4 ohm, 700W RMS /6ohm, 600W RMS /8ohm, 400W RMS /16ohm
BIAMP/STEREO: 2x375W RMS /2ohm, 2x300W RMS /4ohm, 2x250W RMS /6ohm, 2x200W RMS /8ohm

Main features: 2 preamps - tube and transistors / analog device
Two channel mode - 1 internal channel + 1 external channel used to connect a separate preamp channels selected by FOOT SWITCH
Inputs: passive & active

Controls:
BALANCE
 control between the power amps
GAIN control with overload indicator. Operating with Gain and Input Mix player can obtain sound very close to acoustic bass or fretless bass guitar. The area around knobs marked by a break-off line indicates the region where the level of compression and distortion allows achieving the desired effect.
MIX  fluent signal adjustment of the input between 2 sections of the amplifier - tubes simulation and transistors.
COMPRESSOR/LIMITER to control dynamic of sound
VOLUME control
BASS and TREBLE equalizer with "MLO system" (Middle-range Level Optimization).
PARAMETRIC EQUALIZER for precise control of middle range (120Hz-4kHz)
PRESENCE button - increases transparency of sound
PUNCH button - increases sonic expression
DBS - Dynamic Bass System, increases dynamics and selectivity of bass sound

Taurus - unique features


MLO SYSTEM

The “MLO” (Mid Level Optimisation) is Taurus proprietary system allowing for an easy, intuitive and extremely comfortable optimisation of the overall sound of the bass guitar.

The MLO System provides all new possibilities. It ensures most accurate proportion of medium frequencies in accordance of your manual settings of bass and trebles. This very intuitive and logical system supports musician's choice for most desirable sound.

In addition, the MLO equaliser ensures virtually no change in overall volume while changing the bass frequencies. Unlike most of the standard amps, adjusting bass frequency the musician notices change of the sound not the volume.

DBS SYSTEM

The DBS system is designed to increase low bottom while preserving very clear and dynamic sound, this also protects speakers against fluttering when very low frequencies are applied.

DBS provides the natural sound of the instrument even in the lowest registers.

TUBE DRIVE

By using two potentiometers MIX and GAIN, you will conjure sound which can be produced only by real tube amplifier : Warm murmur, tube compression, as well as VINTAGE DRIVE. The MIX knob is a balance of Solid State and Tube pre-amp. The GAIN is used to achieve compression and overdrive of the amp's tube section,which is identical to the real classic tube amplifiers.

For example:




Gentle tube sound without compression.

Light compression and characteristic tube murmur.

Deep tube DRIVE

 

OPTO-COMPRESSOR

The COMPRESSOR/ LIMITER used in Taurus's amplifiers is based on OPTOCUPLER high quality parts. This passive, virtually noiseless optical system will not alter your original sound by any means (no ham or distortion ). It is designed to give a wide range of compression effects, from a very soft sound of the Limiter up to the deepest possible compressed sound.The sound always remains highly selective, clear and punchy, even at its maximum compression.

TRUE VOICE line out

All Silver Line Amps feature "True Voice" output. This particular feature allows for sending your instrument's sound directly to the mixing board through the LINE-POST-EQ output. The sound sent to the mixing board has exact the same parameters as the sound you can hear through your speakers.
