March Mixdown’s "Amplification Special" includes a summary of a review of the TTE 800 published earlier in the year.
RECOMMENDED FOR: Monster bass players who need thick low end and incredible highs for funk styles and the fl exibility to take a solo then go right back to holding down the entire low end in a rock setting.
SOUND/VERSATILITY/TONE: An incredible amp for flexible bass players, especially those who use a lot of active electronics to control their tone live, because the preamp is so reactive,
yet the preamp’s own sound-shaping is plenty versatile too.
USABILITY: One of the best inbuilt compressors ever and an amazing tube-driven ‘Colour’ contour control. The combination of tube and solid state technology gives you lots of punch and growl, definition and warmth.
CONSTRUCTION: Light, well laid out and perhaps most importantly of all for gigging bass players, especially easy to carry around and stow thanks to its side-mounted handle and extra side-mounted feet.
OVERALL: One of the best sounding and best-built bass amps out there, every bit deserving of its place on stage with Randy Jackson, who is one of the most talented and versatile session bass players out there today, with tonal requirements to match.
I've been working on a killer bass amp with Marco De Virgiliis and his team in Pescara, Italy. Hung out with them this past June and went over EVERYTHING to make sure we got this just right...woofers, tweeters, EQ. I think you're gonna love it. Check this out. MM
