Pearce BC1 Preamp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Sapo, Aug 2, 2000.

  1. Anybody know where I can get an owner's manual for a Pearce BC1? I tried a place called DB Music in Buffalo but they've been unresponsive.

    Sapo, who did you talk to at DB? They are hard to reach and very inundated with work. I maybe able to find some info on these. Give me a few days. Billy Sheehan used to use one of these. How did you get in touch with DB?

    Try Bass Central. They have one for $299. Call them and ask. I'll check back with DB for you. Here's the link.

  3. Doug,

    The guy did sound preoccupied. He was trying but not having any luck finding the BC1 info. He was able to find info on the G1 in a matter of minutes.

    I can't remember his name. He wasn't rude or anything like that.

    I found out about DB Music by doing a search on Pearce Electronics. Their web site says they are a service center.

    i was able to acquire a BC1. Unfortunately, I don't have the manual, schematics, or a footswitch for it.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

    Sorry that last link wasn't working properly. Try this one. Go to amps, then used. It looks like a BC1.

    I'll see what I can drum up in the meantime.

    Here's another idea. Try posting your question, in the discussion forums, at Ampage. You might get a better response.

  6. OK, I'll check that out.

    I just saw a Pearce 600-watt head in the local classifieds. Pretty cheap. Anyone have experience with it? I remember the ads with Billy Sheehan from the 80's-2 channels, distortion, and a ridiculous blue leather jacket.
  8. Doug,

    I was able to track Dan Pearce down. He works for Ashly now. I sent him an email but a person at Ashly told me he's currently on vacation. Bummer.

    I'm sure he'll get back to you. If not just keep sending him emails. I'm still searching myself. Hopefully I can find something for you. Here's another thought, try emailing Billy Sheehan. He's used one of these for years. I've sent him emails in the past and he's returned every one of them. He may know where you can get one. Although it sometimes takes him awhile to reply back. What have you got to lose? Here's his email address:


  10. I got excited when all those threads got bumped!!!

    as i had just got back from fiddling with my pearce bc-1 and thought "ahh!! some discussion about them!"

    All you have to do is pay for a supporting membership to post your gear for sale.

    This is gonna be found by the mods and closed, for sure. If you've got something to sell, don't abuse TB!:mad:

    If you still need the manual or schematic, e-mail me. I have both and my old BC-1 in my rack of "never used but never forgotten gear"....
