An excellent choice for a first amp or backstage warm-up rig.
The Warwick BC150 150W 1x15" bass combo is a great option for bassists looking for a first amp or a great-sounding option for bedroom or backstage practice. It features a four-way EQ, DDL (Dynamic Distortion Limiter) for distortion-free play at high levels, and two instrument inputs for active or passive basses - and it's suitable for two instruments to play through at the same time. For practice-friendly features, the BC150 houses Aux. input to play along with a CD, MP3 or other media player, and a headphone output for silent play.

Comments about Warwick BC150 150W 1x15 Bass Combo w/4" Horn:
I am in love with the Warwick BC series of bass combo amps. I've never played through anything that could come close to matching them. I own both the BC80 and it's big brother the BC150 and will eventually buy the BC10 for airline travel.
The BC150 has the perfect combination of tone, guts and the ability to precisely dial in my sound. With a 15" bass speaker backed by 150 watts of power I can get all of the growl and bite that I need for rock, reggae, blues, etc. The 4 EQ tone knobs actually dial up incremental tone changes unlike other equipment I formerly used from major equipment manufacturers.
The sound is just so darn clean and no more of the unwanted overtones I've experienced in the past!
The aux input and headphone jack both take mini-plugs which is so much more convenient than using a 1/4" adapter like I had to with my former SWR and Genz Benz amps. The MP3's play beautifully balanced through it allowing a fun jam along, with or without headphones.
The build quality is excellent and I appreciate having the handle on top of the unit. The one thing that I'd like to see them change though is the power switch which is at the back of the cabinet near the floor. It would be more convenient on the control panel in the front.
And best of all, I no longer need either my compressor pedal or Bass EQ pedal; there is a built in compressor that works great and the onboard EQ knobs dial in my tone perfectly.
I demo'd both the new equivalent Fender and Ampeg amps before buying this one and I feel there was no comparison. Do it yourself and see what you think.
