EICH Amplification is the new brand name for the same products that were until now known as TecAmp. Same quality, same models, same ultra low weight, 100% made in Germany. Just a new brand name and some small refinements on the producs. Oh yes, same price too...
The man behind this brand is Thomas Eich and he's been developing class D amps and ultralightweight cabs for more years than any others. All that experience has served him to create what are probably the best lightweight amps and cabinets in the market. ¡We love them!
We all like carrying small and light cabinets but the truth is that many of these really don't deliver when it comes to a real life situation. We hate the feeling of coming home after a gig feeling frustrated for taking an amp that just was not up to the requirements. Well, none of that will happen if you take an EICH Amplification cabinet.
Lightweight ultra effective ceramic speakers are used int he whole range. These are superior to most any other speaker out there. Sensitivity is probably the most important spec in a speaker but this gets sort of hidden in the spec sheet as many brands use cheap speakers. A more sensitive speaker will get more excited under a given power load compared to a lesser speaker. This means that you will get more effective loudness without having to turn your amp up.
Equally important is the wood material for the cabinet and the way it is built. Cabinet building is an art as it must be strong enough to reduce vibrations as well as being lightweight. Well, that's what you get with these cabinets.
This is the BC112 PRO combo and it sports a ceramic 12" speaker for the low and mids and a 4" speaker (rather than a tweeter) for the high frequencies. This 4" speaker sounds far more natural than any tweeter and it can be set at full volume, half volume or Off. Cool!
Compared to the standard BC112 combo, this one is more powerful (500W instead of 300W) so it is louder by itself and it is the perfect choice if you plan to add an extension cabinet in the future (an XS112 at 8 Ohms is a perfect match).
There's a reflex hole at the back and a clever system to slant the cab towards you. This means you can keep the cab on the floor (which is where it should always be so that no low end is lost) and hear the mids and highs effectively even if you have to stand next to the cab in a tiny speaker.
The preamp and power section are identical to the T500 head, so you get 500W of pure and uncoloured sound that sounds far more natural than any other similar product in the market. The 4 band EQ is very musical and the clever Taste control lets you dial in a completely flat sound (Middle position) as well as a deep and full vintage sound (Rich) or a rumble-free and clear tone for venues with boomy acoustics (Dry). Phones Out and Aux in are really handy. There's a switch for the internal speaker so you can practice silently at home.
On its own, the BC112 combo is powerful enough for most situations, but if you need even more pressure and volume just add a 112XS cab (8 Ohm) and you won't believe how much power comes from a small and lightweight mini stack.
This is actually a Special Edition unit as it has been custom ordered by us with an ultra high Z input stage (5 Meg Ohm) to handle piezo pickups from electric, acoustic and double basses. This means that you will get a much fuller and realistic sound from your piezo loaded instrument. Note: this ultra High Z input works equally well with standard electric bass magnetic pickups.
Sure, there are lots of 12" combos for bass out there but none of them sound like this and are so easy to move around. When yo combine excellent portability with natural sound and lots of power handling and pressure, you have a winner product.
