TC Electronic BC208 (and mini BAM200 head?)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Orestes Chouchoulas, Oct 26, 2018.


  1. Did anyone else notice the tiny (yet unannounced) amp head sitting on top of the TC Electronic BC208 which was announced yesterday? Looks like the size of a Trace Elliot Elf. [Photos from here.]

    Didn't notice that. Looks like a smaller version of the BQ heads.

    I'm quite intrigued by the cab though. Appears similar the TE Elf 2x8 but half the price (although half the wattage too). I'd love to find out more specs, eq frequency response.

    Peavey has a 2x8, 200w combo coming out soon also. The new rage... Vertical 2x8, small footprint.

    I'm waiting for that head to pair to a barefaced one10
     
  5. I hope it's not like the BG250-208 combo. I had one, and it wasn't very good. It was very boxy sounding. The speakers really didn't have much bass to them, they were more like low-mid drivers.

    This cabinet looks like it has a new driver, though. My brother is currently using my BG250-208 as a kind-of hipster jazz guitar amp.

    FWIW, it looks like Traynor just released a limited edition 2x8 cabinet. Perhaps there's a decent 8 inch driver that's both cost-effective and reasonable sounding now?

    Considering the BQ250 is $199....i'm hoping this will be $150.
     
  7. Looks cool but, a little confusing. I assumed the bc range had been discontinued and replaced by the K cabs. K-208?

    Trace Elliot is a Peavey brand now. This format is great for theater pit musicians.

    I picked that thing up at GC the other day. Surprisingly heavy imo.

    Pretty cool how the head attaches to the cab like that.

    The US site (take euro link, replace ".de/gb/" or whatever different localisation with "music.com/") converts europrices into "guideline" bucks, with €x≃$x usually. So, assuming the guideline is a reliable if rough indication, the price for American customers might end up at ~$150 including shipping and duties...

    Ah the first ELF clone. Hope it’s half the amp the elf is.

    Won’t hold my breath though.
