Taurus Introduce the New Hybrid Vandall-500 Bass Amplifier

Taurus Amp announces the introduction of a new hybrid bass amplifier.

The Taurus Vandall-500 is a 500W/RMS bass head with a double input, 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.

The MLO (Mid-Level Optimization) system allowing for easy, intuitive and extremely comfortable optimization of the overall sound of the bass guitar.

The MLO System provides all-new possibilities. It ensures the most accurate proportion of medium frequencies in accordance with your manual settings of bass and trebles. This very intuitive and logical system supports a musician’s choice for the most desirable sound.

In addition, the MLO equalizer ensures virtually no change in overall volume while changing the bass frequencies. Unlike most amps, when adjusting bass frequency, the musician notices a change in the sound not the volume.

To sum up, the equalisation in the MLO keeps you within the correct range, at the same time allowing you to use the maximum potential of equalization of the bass sound. This is a big advantage compared to a classic solution, where you need to watch certain frequencies carefully to avoid overloading the speakers.

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.
