Comments about Warwick BC20 20W 1x8 Bass Combo w/2" Horn:

I'm a guitarist but after years of considering it, finally decided to start noodling on bass. This inexpensive amp gives stunning bottom and tonal range at home practice levels; articulate and free of speaker distortion or rattle even at surprising volume when cranked. Very efficient little box, and I think many of the better-known guitar amp builders could stand to learn a few things from Warwick's technology about getting big sound from a little cabinet. Extraordinarily free of background noise. On/off switch is in the deep backside of the cabinet, and not convenient, but Warwick explains that's to contain current bleed--one of several noise-control measures-- a tradeoff I will take any day. If it bothers you, just plug into a surge protector with a flip switch. This amp is dead silent when at rest so I tend to leave it switched on. After 3 weeks of steady use, there is not one thing about this amp I am dissatisfied with, other than the purely cosmetic issue of the fuzzy (but tough) fabric covering. I have the thing tucked under a table and don't spend a lot of time fondling it, so that's hardly worth mentioning. Other than that the aesthetics are decent and the control panel is accessible and simply laid out.

Comments about Warwick BC20 20W 1x8 Bass Combo w/2" Horn:

I have never heard better sound from a practice amp at this price and wattage. For practicing, the amp is very convenient, even with the really poorly placed power switch. Having to reach behind the amp each time to turn it on or off is a "turn-off" to me. However, I really like the simplicity of the design, especially having the headphone and line in jacks. Only the essential tone shaping controls are provided. I like the horn. The compact size is great. Precise and thoughtful care seems to had been taken during the design process. I am glad I bought the amp. I will definitely look at bigger Warwick combos.

Comments about Warwick BC20 20W 1x8 Bass Combo w/2" Horn:

As a folk player who picks often on a 6-string, the full range characteristic of this amp. really shines for me. It sounds great for bass, which it is made for. Do not expect too much power from this practice amp. since it is only 20W, but it is a great value. It gives a lot for its price. It is nice to have an amp. that can be used for bass and 6-string simultaneously for practice or small groups.

Comments about Warwick BC20 20W 1x8 Bass Combo w/2" Horn:

This amplifier gives terrific full-range sound with a good bass response for a plugged-in acoustic 6-string. It sounds awesome for my folk-picking and arrpegiating style. It is a great bass amp for practice or small group songleading. The dual input feature allows for a bass and a 6-string at the same time. The power of 20 watts may not be enough for most gigs, but the price to value ratio is excellent.
