Our Perspective:
This beautiful rig just came in from the original owner - it is in pristine condition. It thunders like no other! The head has a anvil style case with wheels and the cab comes with a nice padded cover. These never come up for sale!!

LOCAL PICK UP ONLY!

Handmade in our UK Custom Shop, the BTA-400 is a true contemporary bass masterpiece, for tonal connoisseurs who crave the traditional punch of valve amplification with the added flexibility of a modern preamp.

Combining the unmistakable tonal sophistication of our industry-standard ABM preamp with the sonic might of a fully-loaded 6x KT88 400W valve power amp, BTA400 is a stadium-ready powerhouse, currently rocking the world with players like Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters.

All the ABM features are there – EQ In/Out footswitching, variable Tube/Solid-State input stages, on-board compressor, Sub-Harmonic Generator, balanced DI Output with Pre/Post EQ switching, FX loop, Tuner output and more....

Variable Valve Drive – from zero to rock hero
Whatever tonal character you're seeking, the valve drive control can take you there. Engage it and set on zero for a pristine solid state preamp tone, or wind it up to increase the level of true valve overdrive that gets blended into the signal, taking you from a hint of hair to a fat overdrive.

The Drive level be preset and kicked in and out via footswitch, providing access to a huge range of clean, warm and overdriven tones.

The best EQ in the business
Imagine the simplicity of a traditional 3-band EQ but with the flexibility of a graphic equaliser...that's what the acclaimed ABM preamp delivers, and that's why it's as popular with bass-purists as it is with modern tone-shifters.

Designed to be as simple to use as a 3-band EQ but offer outstanding tonal shaping options, the ABM EQ features familiar Bass, Middle and Treble rotary controls and two pairs of additional sliders.

With the sliders set in the center position the three knobs function just like a classic 3-band EQ. But if you require more flexibility, the additional sliders allow you to fine tune the EQ in the regions the standard controls can't reach, providing a huge range of variation and allowing you to tailor the perfect sound for any gig.

The EQ can be switched in via footswitch taking you from a flat fretless sound to your favourite EQ setting instantly.

One knob compressor
Kick it in and this simple to use, great sounding compressor delivers a powerful, even sound, guaranteed to help your bass fill out any mix.

Sub-Harmonic Generator
Once heard – never forgotten. The ABM Sub-Harmonic generator adds an octave below the notes being played bringing fullness to any bass part. The Sub level is independently controllable, letting you dial in anything from a subtle hint of deep bass to a full-on subterranean funk.

Flexible Footswitching
Paired with our FS-4 footswitch (not included) the ABM comes alive for onstage use, enabling on-the-fly tonal gearshifts. With footswitchable Valve Drive, Compression, EQ and Sub Harmonic Generator, ABM puts dozens of sound combinations at your feet, without so much as an effect pedal in sight.

Professional Connections
Not that you'd expect any less from any amp loaded with the ABM preamp section, BTA400 is loaded with connectivity. A Sub-Bass output to feed the desk or an additional amp, a tuner output, transparent FX loop and a Line Input for the connection of an external sampler or sound source. Output muting cuts the signal from the DI output but leaves the tuner output 'live', allowing the player to tune up in silence.

Classic Series cabs
Classic Series cabs have been developed to be the perfect partners to our range of valve heads, offering powerful performance and striking future-retro looks in 4x10”, 4x12”, 1x15”, 6x10” and 8x10” configurations.

Handmade in the UK from the finest Birch Ply Ashdown's Classic Series bass cabinets feature custom drivers, dual Speakon/jack connectors, horn control switch (4x10” only), heavy duty vinyl covering and vintage red grilles.

Bass 400+

No band sounds better than its bass player.

Bass is the lynch pin between rhythm and melody …a big responsibility. The essential ingredients of great bass tone are Pitch, Punch and Power. Pitch, so the frequency of the note is identifiable and accurate, not the flubby rumble often heard. Punch, so the attack of each note is a precise event in time. And Power to deliver these two with authority and headroom …and to disembowel the first five rows!

Artists often call to rave about the Bass 400+™ after switching from bi- or tri- amped rigs of up to a thousand watts—exclaiming the joy of stepping forward in the mix, even to the point of leading the band. String definition so articulate that the rhythm section locks together to become one machine of unstoppable momentum.

Traditional style rotary tone controls, which shape the Bass 400’s all-tube character are fed from dual Inputs, one for modern active basses and the other for classic passive instruments. Each of these has its own separate tube input stage and volume control. A seven-band Graphic Equalizer further details the amp’s inherent musicality, making subtle or radical tonal changes possible and footswitchable.
No less than twelve fan-cooled 6L6 output tubes deliver 500 watts of transient power peaks with cool reliability. And this is no dirty dozen: this is a four-rack, twelve-pack of pure mean punch. You’ll be happy to know that tube life is commonly reported to range from three to five years, and often longer.
Other features include a 600 ohm XLR Balanced Out, Slave Out, blendable FX Loop with dual patch points front and rear, and a three-way switch for fan speed.
This thoroughbred stud has been a mainstay in the Boogie® Stable for over two decades and remains a classic in its own time…for good reason: Great tone and musical power never go out of style.
