Taurus Vandall-500 is a 500W/RMS bass head with a double input, including both solid state and tube pre-amps.The solid state pre-amp ensures great dynamic while the tube pre-amp provides a warm, soft sound. Both pre-amps can be steplessly mixed to offer the whole spectrum of desired sounds, from crisp and clear to slightly over driven tube.
Light, powerful and adaptive
The Taurus Vandall-500 is powered by outstandingly efficient high energy (SMPS) Switching Mode Power Supply which ensures extremely high dynamics and power in a light weight and compact amp dimensions.
This amplifier fits perfectly with guitar equipment from every well-known brands like Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Jackson, Musicman, ElectroHarmonics, TCElectronics. Boss and Dunlop.
We want you to feel free with your style, so you won't be limited only to hard metal kind of music. Jazz, Reggae, Blues, Rock, Funk, Pop, Vandall adapts to your needs.
Take a wheel and keep full control with MLO
MLO (Mid Level Optimization) is an unique equalizer for bass guitar designed by Taurus Amp.
This System provides all-new possibilities. It ensures the most accurate proportion of medium frequencies in accordance with your manual settings of bass and trebles. This very intuitive and logical system supports a musician's choice for the most desirable sound. In addition, the MLO equalizer ensures virtually no change in overall volume while changing the bass frequencies. Unlike most amps, when adjusting bass frequency, the musician notices a change in the sound not the volume.
To sum up, the equalisation in the MLO keeps you within the correct range, at the same time allowing you to use the maximum potential of equalization of the bass sound. This is a big advantage compared to a classic solution, where you need to watch certain frequencies carefully to avoid overloading the speakers.

Introduction - Bass Amp Taurus Vandall 500
Teaser: Taurus VANDALL 500
I'm a bass guitarist from Hungary. We've been playing jazz and fusion jazz for 40 years. During this time I had many amplifiers. (Fender, Hartke, Markbass, EBS, Aquilar) Last time I used it for a long time Ampeg SVT3 Pro. I bought an amplifier in reserve Taurus Vandall 500 bass head. During use it turned out that the Taurus Vandall fantastic amplifier, perfect sound and performance. Well-understood warm and detailed sound.
I'm happy to use this Taurus Vandall 500 amplifier !
Best regards Vincze László !
w wierny sposób oddaje brzmienie, głośny, porządny bass, dobra dynamika dźwięku
Wzmacniacz spełnił moje oczekiwania w 100%. Mały, poręczny i POTĘŻNY.
Gram głównie jazz i wspaniale można kreować styl i jakość dzwięku. Polecam.
Jedyne co mogę się przyczepić to brak jekiegokowiek pokrowca a przy tej klasie przydałby się (dlatego jedna gwiazdka w dół).
Definitely one of them better taurus amplifiers, a combination of timbres for any style, when using active basses I can explode impotence without saturating my output
I was lucky enough to be one of ther first people to get one of these amp heads, and I've been using it about a year.
This is one of the finest bass amplifiers money can buy. Hand-built by a genius in Poland, it's better than Mark Bass, better than Darkglass, better than Ampeg.
The Vandall 500 is a beast of a bass amp, it contains both a solid state and a valve preamp plus the ability to blend the two. You can go from gritty rock growl to clean Mark King pop and everything in between. It has a bass and treble boost and a sweepable mid that while increasing and decreasing the eq keeps the volume level. It doesn't saturate the tone of your bass, instead enhancing your axe rather than overpowering it. It also ways less than 6lbs, so it ahrdly breaks your back carrying between shows.
Last week, I had to use a friend's Ampeg SVT and 8x10 cab. I sounded dull and lifeless after a year with the Vandall.
Seriously. Get this.
