Taking bass to a higher level

Blacksmith offers more than excessive power, with renowned Bass amp 2.0 features such as integrated chromatic bass tuner, refined tone-shaping tools including 4 bands of EQ, SpectraComp™ 'per string compression', TubeTone™ 'complete Tube pre- and power amp recreation' and TweeterTone™ 'intelligent HF control' as well as the unique 3 user-defined memories, Blacksmith takes bass amplification to a new level in more than one respect.

8, 4 or 2 ohms, your choice

Blacksmith is capable handling cabinet combinations all the way down to 2 ohms, so ultimately, you could fire up four 410 cabinets simultaneously - that's 16 x 10” or 8.7 square foot of speaker cones, we also suggest either one or a pair of the magnificent Bergantino NV cabinets!

Blacksmith Features

Flexible Tone Controls

Blacksmith feature a set of straightforward controls like you know them from traditional amps, voiced to give you plenty of tweaking options to nail the perfect tone. Chances are that this is all you’ll ever need. However, if you’re not fully satisfied with the default frequency areas, fear not – every tone control is also capable of being semi-parametric bands. This way, you can pinpoint any frequency you want to remove or boost for each tone control and then store the settings.

On-board user memories

You might not use presets...yet. If you use different basses or change playing style during shows, you know that a few amp presets would be welcome. Blacksmith gives you 3 on-board user memories for effortless switching between 4 and 5-string basses or Rickenbackers and Fenders for that matter. Alternatively, you can create 3 entirely different tones for one bass – e.g. overdrive, slap and a vintage tone. Just plug in your bass and use the ‘car radio’ style Store & Recall controls to easily switch between you personal presets. Also, by adding the optional RC4 floor-based remote control, you can switch effortlessly between you presets without ever letting go of the strings.


TubeTone™ was originally developed for the RH450 bass amp. Most transistor designs try to replicate tube sound using one small preamp tube, but why not take the crucial characteristics of a full preamp and power amp into account? Both are essential to the sound when you want that classic tube warmth as well as when you go for a full-on overdriven rock sound with a massive punch! TubeTone™ gives you exactly that.


A conventional compressor is often dominated by the lower string, but with SpectraComp™, inherited directly from the original RH450, you get 'per string' multi-band compression that evens out the compression across all strings. In short, you get an even and rock solid tone that cuts through any mix whether you play fingerstyle, with a heavy pick or slap the strings hard.


The tweeter control is usually located on the rear side of the cabinet, but on Blacksmith you can simply adjust the tweeter level right from the front panel. Further, the sound also gets modified slightly with filters for a much more intelligent control over the high frequencies that are critical for giving your sound that razor-sharp edge.

Built in bass tuner

Every bass player needs a tuner, but virtually no other amp offers anything else than a ‘tuner out’ feature.... Blacksmith does! Simply push the Mute button to get a full-resolution tuner ‘light ring’ to help you tune your instrument quickly and accurately. You can also use the RC4 remote control unit for easy floor-access to this functionality. Both speaker and DI outputs are muted automatically while tuning. Finally, even when you haven’t pushed the Mute button, the tuner is still active, only without the light ring feature.

Transformer balanced Studio grade Line driver output

Quality can vary wildly with built-in DIs, but Blacksmith’s DI is transformer balanced and galvanic isolated from the rest of the amp, which means that you get absolutely no ground loops or annoying humming. And don’t worry about long cable runs – Blacksmith will draw at least 100m of cable with zero loss of audio quality. Even though the integrated DI in Blacksmith does not need 48v phantom to operate, it does not get harmed if your sound engineer should happen to leave it on by accident.

AES/EBU Digital recording out

The AES/EBU connector lets you record straight into your DAW, such as Pro Tools or Logic. For maximum flexibility, it’s also S/PDIF compatible and can be switched between ‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ in the pre-amp section.
