This year's Summer NAMM show saw the debut of the BBT 500H amplifier,
creating a new product category for the bass guitar player.

As the world's first all digital bass amp, the BBT 500H offers a total of
11 vintage and modern amplifier sounds, built-in dynamics and tone shaping
capability designed to suit any style of music in a powerful, compact package.

Weighing just 8.5 pounds, the BBT 500H delivers 500 Watts of power into 2
ohms (250 Watts into 4 ohms). The 5-band, frequency-variable tone controls,
single-band, fully parametric EQ, compressor and programmable effects blend
controls are easily accessible from the front panel. The BBT 500H also features
a built-in effects loop, MIDI in/out, five user memory locations and a speaker
simulator for additional versatility.
