The TC Electronic Staccato'51 Bass Amplifier Head is the result of a collaboration between TC and Rocco Prestia, living bass legend and founder member of Californian funk giants Tower Of Power.
TC Electronic Staccato'51 is a custom-tuned version of the RH450 that's been made to Rocco's exact specification and ear. The sound design is completely different, meeting the demands of a legend like Rocco Prestia - both on stage and in the studio.
Rocco's sound design on Staccato'51 fits his legendary finger-muting technique like a glove. The full-bodied tone with plenty of highs and lows as well as the ultra fast precision response enhances the percussive elements of Rocco's playing to perfection.
In addition to the sheer tone shaping, Rocco has added a touch of TC's own SpectraComp per-string compression to tighten the sound even more. And finally a touch of TubeTone brings out the growl of Staccato'51 when really digging into those low-end notes.
With the 3 user memories on Staccato’51 you can easily switch between, for example, your 4- and 5-string basses. 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.
Staccato’51 features a rehearsal input mounted on the rear panel, allowing 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.
