A compact powerhouse with a tube preamp for warm, vintage-style tone.
The 15W Bugera BC15 Vintage guitar amp says "retro" better than almost any other combo amp out there. From its vintage styling—which harkens back to the golden age of tube design—to its dual-channel, 12AX7-fueled preamp, this little 1x8 time machine instantly transports your tone to the land of bliss.
Add a master Volume control and 2-band EQ with mid SHIFT switch, and a solid 15W RMS at your disposal, and the BC15 amp is ideal for rehearsal, home or professional recording studios, and even for small gigs. For more demanding performances, just stick a mic in front of the vintage tuned 8" Bugera speaker and give 'em a taste of real-tube tone.
Just like Bugera's high-powered flagship amps, the Bugera BC15 is all about guitar tone. There's a hand-selected 12AX7 tube inside the BC15, giving this little brute its bite. But the Bugera BC15 isn't just a one-trick pony. Selecting the Gain button activates the Bugera amp's Lead/Distortion channel, launching you into sweet tube-soaked overdrive. EQ duties are handled by Bass and Treble controls which—when used in conjunction with the midrange shift button—provide tons of tone-sculpting options.
Even though the Bugera BC15 has vintage styling reminiscent of amplifiers from the '50s and '60s, the little combo also boasts some very modern extras. A 1/4" TRS jack provides a connection for external playback devices, such as a CD player, tape deck, iPod, and others, allowing you to jam with your favorite songs. If it's late and the urge to play suddenly strikes, just plug some headphones into your BC15 and you won't have to worry about waking the kids or bothering the neighbors. You won't find features like these on your granddad's amp!
All this tone and functionality comes in an extremely portable, lightweight package—and because it's built like a tank, the Bugera BC15 amplifier takes whatever life dishes out, from one gig to the next. Before you spend far too much of your hard-earned cash, you owe it to yourself to give the Bugera BC15 Vintage guitar amp a listen.

Comments about Bugera BC15 15W 1x8 Vintage Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
First of all, the picture shows a black handle and corners. Mine came in brown which was a welcome surprise! Looks more vintage. I am very pleased with the performance and features of this amp. Nice clean tones and pretty decent gains. This amp is very easy to navigate and is exactly what I was looking for in a practice amp. We are putting a mic to it for bigger venues.
