With 450 Watts as well as an Active Power Management system you will get maximum power impact and a combo easily capable of behaving like a tube amp at full blast. The cabinet configurations features two customized Eminence 10" drivers and a 1" tweeter all housed in a vertical 18mm hard-wearing plywood cabinet with a pull-up handle and wheels for easy transportation.
There's also a speaker breakout connection to add additional cabinets - indeed any combo can drive a combination of any three TC cabinets. ComboStaccato incorporates a 'stackability' system so it can be expanded in a number of ways. For example you could easily add an RS212 and RS410 for the ultimate power combo for those larger gigs. ComboStaccato adds a distinct bass flavor to TC Electronic's new bass combo range, a range that offers something for bass players everywhere.
Most bass players know that integrated compressors generally don't sound that good. A regular compressor tends to be dominated by the lower string, but Staccato '51's SpectraComp technology allows virtually 'per string' multi-band compression that evens out the compression across all strings - Rocco adds a touch of SpectraComp to tighten up his sound.
TubeTone emulates all characteristics of both the pre- and power amp to deliver the full tube sound. Staccato '51 uses the TubeTone to add the growl when really diggin' in.
3 User memories
With the 3 user memories on Staccato '51 you can easily switch between, for example, your 4- and 5-string basses, or your Rickenbacker and Fender Jazz. Just plug in the bass and use the 'car radio' style Store & Recall controls to easily switch between presets for your chosen model. There are three bass user memories, remote control access and visual indicators for Mute and the Tuner.
Flexible Tone Control
Straightforward controls like you know them from traditional amps. Voiced by Rocco Prestia to give you plenty of tweaking options to nail the perfect tone. Chances are that this is all you?re ever gonna need. However, if you're not fully satisfied with the default frequency areas, fear not - TC have given you the option to change the focus of each of the tone controls through semi parametric access through the shift button.
Integrated Chromatic Tuner
Every bass player needs a tuner, so we built one in. Simply push the Mute button to get a full-resolution tuner 'light ring' to help you tune your instrument quickly and accurately. You can also use the RC4 for easy remote access to this functionality.
Playing any instrument on its own can be a little dull, but everyone needs time to practice, which is why Staccato?51 has rehearsal inputs. This rear panel-mounted feature allows you to plug in your iPod, phone, computer or MP3 player via the supplied mini-jack to RCA cable adapter for easy practicing and playing along with recorded music.
