Trickfish Amplification Announces the Bullhead Mini 500 Bass Amp

Trickfish Amplification Bullhead Mini 500 Bass Amp

Trickfish Amplification has expanded its Bullhead series of bass amps with the Bullhead Mini 500. Rated at 500 watts, the unit matches the Mike Pope-designed preamp with a Class D power amp.

The Mini 500 strips down the control set to a four-band EQ, a -10dB input pad, and a mute control in addition to Gain and Master levels. It retains an extensive set of connectivity including an aux input, a headphone output, a pre/post Balanced DI output, an effects loop, and a Neutrik Speakon combo connector. All that comes in at a total of 3.4 pounds.
