On the 97, when you boost the bass control it seems to make the B string louder and have a lesser effect on the other strings, but the 2000 is more 'as you'd expect', pretty much makes...

    TC Electronics Head and Cabs

    Can anyone give me impressions on these little beasts? RH450 RS210 The fact that the whole rig would weight less than half of my Ampeg combo really got into me. How does it sound? Does the head have any kind of digital sound processing? Thanx!
