  1. That's what the Yamaha-Germany site says of the BS250 bass amp (see picture attached):

    "For over 20 years the extremly definite sound of Yamaha basses has been the standard for the best musicians. With the same philosophy we created Bass Stage series. The "warm" overdimensioned mosfet power amps and the generous speakers are only the starting point. We gave the whole line a highly efficient four band equalization stage plus contour control. Then we added a real compression tweeter, easily adjustable with the tip of your finger. Moreover we designed a velvet sounding compressor circuit based on the original dbx processor and a tilted front panel that offers easy knob access and better acoustic monitoring. Over the years, and with the help of the world`s best artists, Yamaha reached perfect bass sound; out of this experience we have now created Bass Stage."

    Don't believe everything you read; especially when :

    a) It's on the internet
    b) It's a sales pitch!
