NAMM 2019: Poland’s Taurus Amplification has announced the Vandall-500, a 500W hybrid bass head, which features both solid-state and tube preamps.
The hybrid design allows bassists to mix both preamps, which can be further refined with the company’s Mid-Level Optimization system, which promises frequency sweeps without losing volume.
Parametric mid control and preamp filter switches promise further tweakability, while a switching mode power supply makes for high dynamics and power from a lightweight, compact amp.
Around the rear, you’ll find an XLR balanced line out with pre/post and ground lift switches, plus an effects loop and speaker output.
The Vandall-500 is available now from Taurus Amplification for $793USD/€696/£624.
