These beautifully engineered heads from TC Electronic have been created to satisfy bass players looking for a more traditional tone from the new generation of compact/powerful bass heads. The tone is more "old school", being warmer and fatter than many and when set up will reproduce many classic, instantly recognisable tones from some of the past. However, this is not a "one trick pony" and will keep the average bass player very happy with a vast array of bass friendly tones available from hifi and modern to edgy and fat. With the inclusion of one the finest three band compressors available and the well conceived "tube tone" circuit, plus an on board tuners and parametric eq points, this is one of the finest heads of this new genre.

With decades of cutting edge amp design and signal processing development, no other company could bring you this much power, flexibility and tone within a bass amp system.

At TC Electronic, bass gear is developed for bass players by bass players. We have accumulated years and years of live and recording experience – hard-earned experience we've harvested out there on the road and in studios. After countless hours of playing, tweaking, listening – well, living bass, we truly understand your needs and desires when it comes to gigs, rehearsals and studio work. We’re proud to bring you the RH450 - the bass innovation that will define Bass Amp 2.0.
Rehearsal inputs

Playing any instrument on its own can be a little dull, but everyone needs time to practice, which is why RH450 has rehearsal inputs. This rear panel-mounted feature allows you to plug in your iPod, phone, computer or MP3 player via the supplied mini-jack to RCA cable adapter for easy practising and playing along with recorded music. The headphone amp is a high quality model taken straight from TC Electronics Studio Konnekt 48 and includes a speaker filter on the bass signal.

Integrated Tuner

Every bass player needs a tuner, but virtually no other amp offers anything other than a ‘tuner out’ feature… until now. 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 Rebel-Control for easy remote access to this functionality.

On board User Memories

You might not use pre-sets, but only because you’ve never had the chance! Anyone who’s used different basses on stage knows that a few user memories on your amp would be welcome. With the RH450 you can easily switch between, for example, your 4- and 5-string basses, or your Rickenbacker and Fender Jazz. Just plug in the bass and use the ‘car radio’ style Store & Recall controls to easily switch between pre-sets for your chosen model. There are three bass user memories, remote control access and visual indicators for Mute and the Tuner.

Flexible Tone Control

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’re ever gonna need. However, if you’re not fully satisfied with the default frequency areas, fear not - we’ve given you the option to change the focus of each of the tone controls.

The nerdy term for this feature is semi-parametric bands, but let’s just refer to it as “hidden parameters” or “the magnifying glass”. It allows you to pinpoint a frequency you either want to remove or boost for each tone control and then store the settings.


Most transistor designs have tried to replicate the tube sound using one small pre-amp tube, but they generally fail as they don’t take into account the crucial characteristics of the full pre-amp and power amp sections – both of which are essential to the sound. TubeTone™ emulates all characteristics to deliver the full tube sound.

Spectra Comp™

Most bass players know that integrated compressors generally don’t sound that good. A regular compressor tends to be dominated by the lower string, but RebelHead450’s SpectraComp technology allows virtually ‘per string’ multi-band compression that evens out the compression across all strings.


World Ready power supply

The ultimate in convenience for the travelling musician. The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier for anyone on the road as there’s no complicated fuse changing – just plug and play!


Digital Recording output

The AES/EBU connector means you can record straight into your DAW, such as

Pro Tools or Logic. For maximum flexibility it’s also S/PDIF compatible and switchable from pre to post in the pre-amp section.


Integrated DI box

Quality can vary wildly with built-in DIs, but RebelHead450’s DI is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum. And don’t worry about long cable runs – RebelHead450 will draw at least 100m of cable with zero drop in audio quality.




Power Handling

The 450w high power output level of RebelHead is accomplished by using Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronics Active Power Management™. APM effectively means that the amp behaves very much like a tube amp when getting close to maximum performance by optimising the power impact, contrary to the hard-clipping tendencies of transistor amps and most other Class D
