Acoustic B300C and B600C Bass Combo Amps Combine Classic Tone and High Output for Gigging Bass Players

Acoustic® Amplifiers is proud to announce the new C-Series B300C and B600C bass combo amplifiers. These do-it-all amps pair the classic, organic, soulful Acoustic tone with all the power and features modern working bass players need to tackle any stage or studio gig.

GC-ACOUSTIC-B300C-3

Thanks to efficient and clean Class-D power amplification, both models are able to pack enormous power output into a rugged and easily transportable form factor. The B300C delivers 300 watts to a 15-inch ferrite speaker, giving players copious low-end tone using just a single driver paired with a piezo horn tweeter. The B600C feeds 600 watts into a pair of custom-voiced 10" ferrite speakers along with a piezo horn tweeter, providing even more power plus the quick transient response musicians expect from a 2x10" cabinet. In addition both models can be used to drive additional external cabinets to expand the rig as needed.

Like all Acoustic C-Series amps, the B300C and B600C can be used in either a straight vertical orientation for maximum projection to the audience or as a tilt-back wedge suitable for precise personal monitoring at rehearsals, recording sessions, or live performances.

For tone shaping, the B300C offers a five-band EQ, a convenient Shape switch with a variable notch filter to dial in those important midrange tones, and a Blendable Overdrive circuit that allows the player to mix clean and overdriven signals. The result is maximum flexibility of tonal options that work for a wide range of styles and genres. The B600C offers identical features but with a six-band Graphic EQ plus Hi and Low EQ controls for precise tone shaping.

Further sound-sculpting tools common to both models include Acoustic's renowned Acousti-Comp™ switchable compression for control over performance dynamics, plus Super-Hi and Super-Low EQ boost switches. A direct XLR output may be switched as pre-EQ or post-EQ, and includes its own level control and ground lift switch. This makes for worry-free connection to a mixer or stage snake without the need for a direct box to eliminate the ground hum that can occur in so many performance venues. A 1/8-inch headphone output lets the player plug in headphones or ear buds for quiet practice, and a 1/8-inch stereo mini input jack allows connection of a smartphone or computer for playing along with their favorite songs or online tutorials.

Both the B300C and B600C feature an effects loop for connecting effects pedalboards, a Link (preamp) output for daisy-chaining multiple amps, and a Neutrik SpeakON® connector for powering an additional passive speaker. They also provide a -10dB input pad to help the player adapt to different pickup or pedalboard output levels, as well as a mute switch that is useful for tuning and for silencing the noise of cables being plugged or unplugged from the input jack.

Whatever a bass players' gigging needs may be, the new Acoustic C-series B300C and B600C ensures they can adapt their tone to any musical genre and performance environment, sound great doing it, and have a tough, road ready rig they can rely on for many gigs to come.

The Acoustic B300C is available for $449.99 and the Acoustic B600C for $549.99 at Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, Music and Arts, and Woodwind & Brasswind.
