In the world of bass amps, the Acoustic B100 stands alone. This amplifier was developed for applications both in live settings or in dance clubs. It’s fifteen-inch bass driver serves to beautifully fill rooms with solid punch and warm, smooth sound while pumping 100 watts of root mean square (RMS) into its massive speaker. This serves to deliver classic, buttery tones common with Acoustic products in a more portable design than ever before.
The Acoustic B100’s two separate bass inputs were designed to accommodate both ends of the bass instrument sound spectrum: passive and active. The volume and gain controls allow users absolute control over tone characteristics. Gain increases lead to old-school rockish tonality. Gain lowering and volume increases creates an incredible classic, clean tone common with funk and soul music.
The included preamp provides natural, tube-type compression levels, and stellar harmonically-rich distortion circuits. These act in parallel to one another to maintain a sharp, musical tone regardless of volume level.
It also includes a handle notch filter, this feature tailors mid-range sound to the specifications of the listener. An added four-band equalizer provides complete control over the tones the amplified exhibits. A parallel effects loop grants the user the ability to incorporate bass effects into a signal chain. Alternatively, Effect Send can be utilized as a line to an external recording, or live mixing board, making the amplifier perfect for the club scene.
The Acoustic B100 has a series-extension speaker jack, which serves to provide an additional output for added cabinets. We recommend the B115 or B410, also developed by Acoustic. The B100, with its incredible tonalities and beautiful feature set, exudes the heritage known so well by the Acoustic brand.
