“I would say that our goal in designing the Bullhead Mini 500 (like our goals with all our gear) is to preserve the most pristine signal path from input to output using high quality components and minimal signal interruptions. We want the player to be able to plug in and experience the full expressive output of their instrument and their playing without introducing a signal path that masks or over colors that performance. The EQ section of the amplifier is based on the Mike Pope designed EQ that is in all our Bullhead amplifiers and gives the player very "bass specific" frequencies that we feel are the most musical options for bass guitar. After all, great gear should disappear during the performance allowing the player to be unencumbered by the gear and free to perform and express the music.” - Ryan Owens, OWNER, Trickfish Amplification USA, LLC
