Trickfish Amplification is now fulfilling orders for the Bullhead.5K bass amplifier which debuted at Winter NAMM 2107. Anticipation for the lower priced head has been growing as the amplifier sets a new performance standard in affordable bass amplification. Featuring the acclaimed Mike Pope low noise pre-amp integrated with a tour proven, 500W @ 8Ohm/ 700W @ 4Ohm Class D power amplifier, the BH.5K offers all of the professional features and performance expected of a Trickfish product at a street price of just $799.00. Housed in a robust aluminum chassis, the powerful head offers a wide variety of tone-shaping capabilities via a 4-band EQ with 8 frequency select options. Other features include selectable input sensitivity, aux input, Pre/Post Balanced DI Output, Parallel EFX loop, amp mute, convection cooling and a Neutrik Speakon combi-connector. Weighing in at a paltry 6lbs, the BH.5K also sports classic “chickenhead knobs” for easy, fast adjustments and the rack-mountable chassis is powder coated in a durable, Deep Sea Blue matte finish.
“Philosophically we are about inclusion, participation and the proliferation of great music. We want every player, regardless of income, to have a sound of which they can be proud. And this year we set out to build something that any aspiring, committed musician could buy – not just an elite few. The Point 5 was a tremendous engineering challenge and the team rallied to create what I feel is a masterpiece product that is affordable for a majority of bassists’ worldwide.” states Trickfish founder Richard Ruse. “We embarked on an important mission to build a reasonably priced amp that any professional could count on to deliver the dynamics, tone-shaping capability and the power they may need to sound and play their best. And this amp actually gets a little gnarly and gritty when you push it hard – something you don’t get with the BH1K so, if you’re a Rock, Blues, R&B, pop, jazz kind of player you’ll find that edginess appealing…” says Ruse.
Located in Southern California, Trickfish Amplification designs and builds professional grade musical instrument amplification products created to inspire musicians to play and sound their best.
