The Taurus Vandall-500 is a 500W/RMS bass head with a double input stage, including both solid state and tube pre-amps.The solid state pre-amp ensures great dynamic while the tube pre-amp provides a warm, soft sound.Both pre-amps can be steplessly mixed to offer the whole spectrum of desired sounds, from crisp and clear to slightly over driven tube.
The Taurus Vandall-500 is equipped with the very effective and easy to operate MLO tone control system designed to find the right sound quickly. Tone setting characteristics are designed to reveal the real character of the particular instrument, meeting its both technical and musical parameters. Extra precise control over middle range is effected by a parametric equalizer and pre-amp filters switches. Even thought the amplifier is operating in very low frequencies, the bass sound is still impressively selective.
The Taurus Vandall-500 is powered by outstandingly efficient high energy (SMPS) Switching Mode Power Supply which ensures extremely high dynamics and power in a light weight and compact amp dimensions.
