Yamaha BBT 500h Finally

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by semborg, Apr 1, 2005.

  1. Wow, this amplifier is really good. Today I bought it, really cheap. (7800 Swedish kr (=724 Euro)). (2x10 Cab included)

    This amp got so much power, pure power!
    250 watts at 4ohm 500 watts at 2ohm.

    The sound character is hard to tell because there are different "Sound types" to build your sound on. But it is very clear and have a surprising loooow bottom. I didn't think 2x10 could go this deep.

    I like the "Tube simulation" it is very warm and soft.
    Programable compressor (Haven't tried it yet)
    You can set frequenze and bandwith on all EQ knobs
    (Bass, Low mid, Mid, High mid, Treble)

    And it is very light!
    And I love to look at it

    Any questions? :hyper:
  2. 19 views... Are you not happy?
    I can say that I am very happy, you can shape the sound so damn good!

    A couple of people have said the amp is noisy. How is yours?

    I'm wondering if some of these problems are caused by cabs with horns. :meh:

    I have been very interested in this amp. Are you going to post some sound clips?
  4. I have the Treble horn 100% down. I do not notice a sound difference except a whisper. But except that, It is very quite, even at high volumes, I can not notice any "Hiss and Hush".

    And the Cab is really great. (2x10). Before I planned to buy one 1x15 too the 2x10, but now I will buy another 2x10. This because I don't need any deeper bottom, the 10s in this cabs really has it already.

    And this amp is really powerful. 250w per Cabinet (Maximum 2(paralell)).

    I do not plan to record any clips because I do not have a good soundcard in this computer.

    Thank you.
