Sounds great, a bit overpriced

By bassline

from Omaha, NE

This is one of the best sounding bass amps I have ever owned. My only problem with it is that it doesn't quite have enough power to where I can hear myself on stage with it. It records like a dream!

Not a B15 N

By Old Bass Guy-lM4Vs

from Ft Worth Tx

If you are looking for authentic early B15 sound this is not the amp for you. Even at 100 watts it was underpowered, heavy and overpriced. Just getting you name in lights on the front of the amp does not make up for poor design. My old 25 watt model fliptop has more punch. I got rid of this amp as quickly as possible. It was not good for stage, running through the board I could not get enough volume to hear myself without using additional monitors. Got a B100R and have been totally happy with it at 1/4 the price. I tried both my vintage '66 Precision and Pedulla ET5 and the amp did not like either one.

Rich powerful sound

By sabastro

It is impossible to express in words the presence of this amplifier, it's an incredible sound that no other amp can come close to matching.

barely worth $500

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

WAY over priced. Under-powered. Cool sound, good for a studio, but one of the last things you would ever want to be towing around live. Get a real vintage one

Flip Top Cool

By LB

I love my new B-15, I have had 2 older models and this new one blows them away. I use it in my studio and it sounds Great! I always run it on high power (100 w) and I did change the speaker to a white frame Lansing.

Best living room amp money can buy

By Bob-Spjz5

from Queens NY

Great tone if you sit around and record or play along to CD's. If you play out in a band you can feel the bass, you just can't hear it. Very tough to dial in a sound that stands out from the band

Bassman in Btown

By Bassman-J-D7F

from Bakersfield, CA

See all my reviews

Nice sound for a little combo for practice or recording. Not a great amp if you play live unless its a very small venue or you are plugged in something else. Beautiful ampeg sound, but if you play modern rock or heavy metal, look around some more. It is great for other types of music.

Totally Tone-ular!

By stevieraypow

from Camel City, NC

Everything you need and nothing you don't. The giant transformers are your first clue to the electronic purity that surges throught this beast. The balanced XLR out with pre/post switch and level control will win the hearts of soundmen wherever you go. As for stage volume, I added a 1x15" classic ampeg enclosure to get what I needed. If you want lots of features and effects, look elsewhere. If you want pure, undeniable tone look no further. Did I mention how cool it looks?
