Glockenklang Unveils the Blue Bird Bass Amp
Glockenklang has revealed the next in their lineup of bass heads with the Blue Bird. Made in Germany, the amp can dish out up to 900 watts at four ohms and features a Class A input stage.
Its control set includes a switchable 5-band EQ with semi-parametric mids, a drive section with a switchable voicing filter, and knobs for controlling the effects return/auxiliary input. Other features include a tuner output, a headphones output, and a footswitch jack.
When asked about its heritage within its own brand, Glockenklang wrote that it has a different module than the Steamhammer and Blue Rock. “It has the drive section of the Blue Rock, but it’s more in the direction of the Blue Sky/Bass Art Classic,” they shared.
Glockenklang says the Blue Bird will be available before Christmas, although final price has not been set. An estimated street price is between 1800-1900€, or approximately $1,910 to $2,015.
