I played SWR rigs for years when I grew weary of lugging them around. I wanted something small and still pack a toned punch. I heard many great things about TC's bass lineup so I took a chance on the RH450 and I was glad I did. I had to do some tweaking before I found some settings that worked for my instrument and my playing style. The amp is very clean with the ability to sizzle as well. My effects work very well with it and the built in compressor/tuner are sweet features. The amp has more than enough power to get you through the night and works with an array of cabinets.
This amp was a very pleasant surprise. Not sure if the power rating is super accurate but it has more than enough power to cover the small to medium venues I have plated. I have had an issue on 3 occasions were the output failed, as in no sound coming out of the speakers. Everything else was on just no sound. It only lasted for a few minutes but I have read that this can happen for longer periods or even indefinitely. All in all, I would recommend this amp. The 3 present channels are great for using multiple basses with different tonalities or just switching eq on the fly for different parts or songs. Built in tuner is solid. Pairs great with the RS212 and the K210 from TC.
