It will not do death metal--without bringing your own effects to the fold. But it does classic tube drive admirably. Good warmth and fuzz if you want it, and also good fat clean tones if you want it. Brilliant little amp.
I think tube and solid state each offer benefits--obviously, or they wouldn't make both. But a tube preamp (like here) with the stable output of a solid state amp works in this package. You can pay a lot more for all tube and not best the quality sound of this practice amp.
I also like that on such a budget model with a tube they included a nice headphone out option. The input for jamming along is nice too, if you need that. I personally like to crank the stereo up and play along, but sometimes people are sleeping, so who knows.
This amp offers enough settings to be truly versatile (including a mid filter cut) and the guts to go snarling Texas boogie or elegant composure to render beautiful clean jazz or country tones. And just about everything in between.
Highly recommended. I expect the sound quality will progress as the tube is played in as with all things tube ultimately do.
Note: I purchased it on Amazon (best price I found new), but played around in a music store before deciding.
This amp certainly won't be winning the coveted "Sexiest Amp of The Year Award." Also, the amp pictured on Amazon will most likely be different from the one you receive -- mine was. Instead of black corner-covers, my amp has light-brown corner-covers. The black screws are chrome screws instead, and the handle matches the corner-covers in color. The power LED is now red, rather than blue. The nicest looking part, in my opinion, is the speaker mesh. It has a nice sparkle to it. It's not a bad looking amp, but it isn't the prettiest one either.
I don't think that any amp in this price range could beat the sound of the BC15. Yeah, it isn't a true valve amplifier, but it has a nice sparkle to it. It is most definitely a vintage style amp though. You can get other sounds out of it by using effects pedals -- which it takes extremely well -- but it is vintage style amp at heart. The "Shift" button gives the amp a sound that reminds me of old '50s Rock and Roll. The "Gain" button is pretty self-explanatory. This gain itself has a very Vox-ish sound to it. The master volume makes this amp a great bedroom amplifier. I haven't tried playing it in an auditorium, but I have played it in a very large room (about 30x30, if I had I to guesstimate) for band practice, and the Master volume was less than half-way up. That tells me that there is plenty of headroom on this amp. This is all with the stock tube as well.Read more ›
The Bugera BC15 is a great practice amp that could also handle a garage session--if I ever wanted to call the old band back together for a jam. I love the variety of sounds I can get from this thing. And it comes at an amazing price!
Even a guitar amp this nice can't transport me back to the '60's. But it does kinda make me feel 16 again. ;)

I love Bugera amps. Own a bunch. No complaints. That aside, I can't get a decent tone from this amp no how, no way. It just sounds flat and dull like an old time am radio. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Whip 914!
