Bass Block 802
Please! Tell me it has detents!
It sounds like they are listening:
Variable speed quieter fan
Pre/Post line out
4 Band EQ
Looks like a winner
Yay! This looks great.
Bark! Oh, Snap!
Looks very cool!
Where are these being sold? How much?
Sweetwater has it at $699.
Alright, it's live. You guys caught this one early! A while back I read through every page of the two Bass Block threads here and made a list of every recommendation here and we tried to do them all.
I'll be on the forum today to answer any questions you might have that aren't covered on the main product page. To answer the first few already in this or the other thread....
There are no detents.
Removal of the XLR out - So, one of the most common requests here was to use two combo Speakon / 1/4" speaker jacks which left no room for the XLR out on the back. We are encourage customers to build modular systems with our speaker cabinets and there just enough room to get that cable in and out of there in the BassDock 10. I actually leave the power cable plugged in too and tuck it in the port before slipping the cover over. It makes for a mighty little pair! The line out on the front of the amp is easily accessible and will provide signal across a TS or TRS cable to DI box. If you're on a gig and they only have an XLR for you just keep one of those little adapters on hand.
We're really excited about this amp. Pat is particularly excited about the lower noise floor. He worked really hard on that and is proud of the result.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Any idea how many were using the XLR line in? Seems like it would've made more sense to lose that than the XLR out which is standard on most bass heads. For obvious reasons.
Why the change to conventional tone controls?
because complainers. i personally love the uniqueness of the 800's tone controls. they made it truly stand out. now its in the category of countless other amps. i hope the 800 is going to remain in production
That's what I was thinking too. That's a shame if a great idea went by the wayside because of that.
New to this product line. Why an XLR in? I find the XLR out to be indispensable.
Love my 800
Looks like a little beast!
Love my BB800...wouldn't mind holding on to a BB802 for a while
Godsend as far as I'm concerned. I went through not one but two Quilters. I'm a longtime QSC power amp user and could get an amazing sound out of the original Bass Block, but you brought that amp into a problematic room and there was nowhere to go with it.
Gotta go check the site now and see where the EQ points are, but this is a VERY welcome development.
I have had my bass block 880 for a couple of months, l love the tone control and the overall performance, the lack of control on the line out is a bit aggravating, i believe ill be selling that one soon! I like the setup here
Same here. They probably figured the unconventional EQ controls scared potential customers away, but I agree with you : For me, the 2-knob solution was mind-blowingly efficient and easy to dial in. They added stuff I don't use (effects loop) and removed stuff I need (XLR out). Oh well...I'm perfectly happy with my 800, so I wasn't going to upgrade anyway.
