TC Electronic BG250 Amp Settings

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ppiluk, Apr 2, 2018.

  1. So I recently picked up a used TC Electronic BG250-210 and love it but am finding it a little confusing. The tone stack has me slightly confused and was wondering if any of you have a suggestion or two for the settings. I pretty much play anything but currently have a focus on Jazz and classic rock sounds.

    Any help would be appreciated.
  2. I had a BG250-115 for a while...mostly positive. Not that I can remember anything specific, personally, I think "settings" are such an individual thing that my suggestion (not to be dismissive) would be to just spend some time with the amp and get yourself "unconfused" :)

    Another thing...I notice you have a Zoom B3n. I have the B3 and found that I could can get some great rock tones running an amp sim into the BG. Probably best to turn off the cab sim, but I found out by accident that the common knowledge that cab sims are trouble with non-flat response bass cabinets wasn't really the case, at least with the 115.

    Anyway, I found a great interaction between the BG and the SVT and SWR sims. You have the pedal; check it out.

    I own the TC Electronic BG250-210, I find the tone controls VERY sensitive. Moving them only a little affects the sound A LOT.

    as for the tone print ? I don't find a need for it, the combo sounds good (nice clean strong bass) without needing any effect imo.

    Thanks for the reply, I am finding this amp sensitive as well. I rarely use the toneprints but there are a couple I have liked.
