I have been playing fusion jazz music for forty years. During this time, I used many amps or just tried them out. I feel like I don't have to look any further because I have found one that caters to all my needs. Warm tube sound or modern transistor or a mixture of all. Fantastic warm tone and excellent EQ.
It was very beautifully designed and this is important. No matter what style you play, whether rock, blues pop or jazz. EQ can do anything.
The 1000 W is well suited for a large stage, too!
I am very pleased that after many decades I have been able to find an amplifier that is lightweight, versatile and of excellent sound quality, but also loud.
I can only recommend it to everyone!
I’ve just bought your Servo-pedal and I absolutely love it. It’s hard to explain to my friends what the pedal actually does. A type of compression, but there’s just that little extra that’s so hard to explain. Everyone agreed that it’s amazing. I’ve trues it on el-guitar, ac-guitar and bass. Works wonders on every single one. Amazing work people at Taurus. I’ll be keeping an eye on your products from now on.
And you should probably now that I saw the Servo via an ad on Facebook the first time
Le da un cuerpo al sonido de la guitarra que hace que el sustain, aún en los trastes altos, sea largo. Chapeau!!!
This is the sound i'm looking for. All controls at 12 o'clock and it sounds great. Now you can change the sound easily by the toggle-switches or more subtile by the eq-controls. But do what you want, the sound will be great. Thank you, Taurus.
One knob operation, quick set with any guitar/instrument, it helps with dynamics and it is very musical, especially if like me, you are playing at low output volume. Sits on my board and is always on, even in front of fuzz. I regret only that the boost isn't on footswitch for live use.

Meet the monster among bass amplifiers
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
Od lat gram na Taurusie. Ogrywałem już parę headów innych producentów, ale zawsze czegoś mi w nich brakowało. Vandall 500 po prostu ma ten punch, moc, gra czysto, klarownie i zwarcie w dole mając ten charakterystyczny taurusowy pomruk. Ma wszystko czego potrzeba. Godny następca mojej także świetnej TL-ki 3510.
Od wielu lat grałem na hedach basowych produkcji głównie z USA a ostatnio zakupiłem głowę od Taurusa VANDALL 500 bo szukałem lekkiego wzmaka. Bardzo pozytywnie mnie zaskoczyła nasza rodzima produkcja bo jest na bardzo wysokim poziomie. Bardzo fajne tłuste brzmienie z mieszanym torem lampowym i tranzystorowym, bardzo duża moc, wykonanie i świetny design. Posiada fajny systemy zabezpieczeń końcówki mocy.
Oprócz Vandalla posiadam też Aguilar tone hammer 500 ale Taurus po prostu miażdży go mocą, tu nie ma czegoś takiego że nie można się przebić w zespole. Cieszy także że to polski produkt.
I have been using Taurus gear for a long time. I started with the Qube 450 and Slimline cabs. I recently upgraded to the Vandall 500 and 1210 cabinet and I absolutely love them. Taurus gear has given me the sound I’ve been searching for. On almost every gig, tour and session I get complimented on my bass sound, how well defined it is, how clear and clean it is. I just love Taurus gear. Plus I still use my Zebu and Tux pedals on my studio pedalboard.
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 !
