With Blacksmith onstage, power is not an issue–large clubs, major venues, or full-scale stadiums, Blacksmith covers it all. A massive 1600 watts delivers a huge bass tone that will follow the user’s slightest moves while playing those hard-rocking bass lines and hammering riffs.

Taking bass to a higher level
Blacksmith offers more than excessive power, with renowned Bass amp 2.0 features such as integrated chromatic bass tuner, refined tone-shaping tools including 4 bands of EQ, SpectraComp ‘per string compression’, TubeTone ‘complete Tube pre- and power amp recreation’ and TweeterTone ‘intelligent HF control’ as well as the unique 3 user-defined memories, Blacksmith takes bass amplification to a new level in more than one respect.

Presets
Anyone using different basses or changing playing style during shows, knows that a few amp presets would be welcome. Blacksmith offers 3 on-board user memories for effortless switching between 4 and 5-string basses or Rickenbackers and Fenders for that matter. Alternatively, three entirely different tones for one bass can be stored – e.g. overdrive, slap and a vintage tone.

8, 4 or 2 ohms, your choice
Blacksmith is capable handling cabinet combinations all the way down to 2 ohms, so ultimately, four RS410 cabinets could be fired up simultaneously–that’s 16 x 10” or 8.7 square foot of speaker cones blasting air at the bass player standing in front of the rig… Better put that foot on the monitor to keep upright.

Blacksmith – be prepared, this will get loud!
