Bassmate Amplifiers / Combo


The McGregor range of bass amplification provides all the features required to support your talent.  We don’t offer a new lifestyle or a new image with these products, simply a product designed for a long and creative trouble free life.  The tonal qualities, input options and extended headroom distinguish these amplifiers as exceptional products and the speakers reproduce your chosen sound with effortless precision and accuracy.
The amplifier includes a rear panel line input and level control, for those that want to practice to a backing track or simply expand the system, and is ideal for musicians looking for a compact and powerful amplifier solution.

Uniquely, these amplifiers also are suitable for double bass, bass guitar, acoustic guitar and even cellos and violins, as they feature a balanced XLR microphone input with switchable phantom power, as well as a conventional high impedance instrument input.  The tonal palette is further widened with Active, Retro and deep push switch selection on all models.

The MOSFET CLASS AB amplifier with active clip limiter and proportional speed fan (spins only as fast as needed) ensures a high quality clean sound is delivered to the speaker system at all times.

The Bassmate Amplifier is a self contained unit, and when fitted to the combo, can be easily removed  for alternative use.   The 10” driver and HF unit fitted to the combo provide quite exceptional results thanks to the built-in, skilfully designed two way crossover that operates at 12dB  per octave.
