Quick Overview

Our RH450 bass amp is the talk of the bass-playing world. Now our award-winning bass head features in the ultimate combo amp - Combo450...


Combo450 features a 450 watt bass head identical to the world class RH450 including its unique tone control section, TubeTone™, delivering all of the rich characteristics of a full-on tube amp as well as SpectraComp™ offering 'per string' compression for more bite and punch than any other bass amp compressor. Combo450 also includes the on-board chromatic bass tuner, three user memories alongside our Active Power Management™ system, giving it maximum power impact and result in Combo450 behaving like a tube amp at full blast - all key features that don't exist in any other combo.


The amp comes matched with the customized Eminence 2 x 10" drivers and 1" tweeter that deliver the clean, punchy and powerful Combo450 sound. The amp and speakers are housed in an 18mm hard-wearing plywood cabinet with a pull-up handle and wheels for easy transportation.


Other features include an auto-sensing PSU so the combo can be safely plugged in to mains power in any country while on tour, and a Rehearsal Input socket that allows you to plug in a variety of audio sources so you can play along for practice. Connecting the optional RC4 foot controller to Combo450 gives you instant control over the three user memories as well as on-floor tuner indication.


Main Features:


Combo450 features are similar functionality to RH450.


Spectra Comp™

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 Combo450’s SpectraComp™ technology allows virtually ‘per string’ multi-band compression that evens out the compression across all strings.



TubeTone™ emulates all characteristics of both the pre- and power amp to deliver the full tube sound. Combo450 uses the TubeTone™ to add the growl when really diggin’ in.


3 User memories

With the 3 user memories on Combo450 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. You’ve got 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 - we’ve 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 - Once you’ve tried it, you won’t go back!


Rehearsal input

Playing any instrument on its own can be a little dull, but everyone needs time to practice, which is why Combo450 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.



World Ready power supply

The ultimate in convenience for the traveling musician. The built-in power supply operates from 90 to 240 Volts, making life a lot easier for anyone on the road as there’s no complicated fuse changing – just plug and play!


Digital Recording output

The AES/EBU connector means you can record straight into your DAW, such as Pro Tools or Logic. For maximum flexibility it’s also S/PDIF compatible and switchable from pre to post in the pre-amp section.


Integrated Linedriver

Quality can vary wildly with built-in linedrivers, but Combo450’s linedriver is transformer balanced and galvanically isolated from the rest of the amp, which means no ground loops or hum. And don’t worry about long cable runs – Combo450 will draw at least 100m of cable with zero drop in audio quality.


Even though the integrated linedriver in Combo450 does not need 48v phantom to operate, it does not get harmed either if your sound engineer accidently leaves it on.



The versatility of Combo450 wouldn’t really make sense if was not easily portable. Combo450 is housed in an 18mm hard-wearing plywood cabinet with a pull-up handle and wheels for easy transportation. It sets your creativity free and screams for you to bring it along wherever your bass talent takes you. Bring your own sound for whatever show or studio session you’re involved in.


Power Handling

The 450w high power output level of Combo450 is accomplished by using Class D amplifier technology in combination with TC Electronic’s Active Power Management™. APM effectively means that the amp behaves very much like a tube amp when getting close to maximum performance by optimizing the power impact, contrary to the hard-clipping tendencies of transistor amps and most other Class D amps.
