Artist BA15 15W Bass Guitar Amplifier with mp3 Input
A great electric bass practice amplifier. Ideal for people learning to Play Bass Guitar. 15 Watts will give you plenty of volume for playing at home and is small enough to carry along to your lesson or jam session.
It features a 4-band EQ for easy tone control, and a headphone output - great for playing at night or when you don't want to disturb your family or housemates!
The Tech Features
Amplifier Specs: 15 Watt, 4 band EQ, Auxilliary Input, Headphone Socket
Speaker: 6.5 Inch Speaker at 8 Ohms
BA15 - Front Panel Functions:
Input - This is your Bass guitar jack input.
Volume - Governs the volume level of both clean and Overdrive channels.
Treble - Controls the high frequencies of the Bass guitar tone. If you increase the treble your bass will sound brighter.
High-Mid - Dictates the higher side of your middle-frequency register of the amplifier. Turning this up will make your guitar sound bittier, ideal for Slap style Bass. Conversely reducing the amount of High-mid in your tone will result in a darker and warmer Bass guitar sound for the classic Rock and Jazz Bass tones.
Low-Mid - Dictates the Lower side of your middle-frequency register of the amplifier. Turning this up will make your Bass guitar sound fatter, ideal for Rock and Metal style Bass tone. Conversely reducing the amount of Low-Mid in your tone will result in a scooped hollower Bass guitar sound for most Metal and Funk styles of Bass playing.
Bass - Controls the amount of low frequencies or bottom end in your tone. The more you increase, the more punch you will add. If your sound sounds too muddy then decrease this control to Tighten your sound.
Aux In - Allows you to connect any media player by using a 3.5mm jack input. This gives you the option to play along to any backing track or music coming from any media device.
Phones - Plug your headphones here for silent practising. Doing this mutes your BA15's internal speaker, cutting out the speaker sound.
Power - On / Off Switch for mains power to the amplifier.
Power Plug: (See our blog post for more details)
- AU & NZ: 240V with AU/NZ Plug
- UK: 230V with UK plug (with a 13a fuse in the plug)

Sensational Value Bass and Amp PackBy: Rod Bridges on 19 March 2021I purchased the PB2 bass and amp pack as I have been playing guitar for many years and decided I should have a go at bass. The bass feels and plays great, and is sensational value and the amp is perfect for home practice. I have made many purchases from Artist Guitars and as always their value for money quality products and excellent customer service is second to none. I would very highly recommend this bass and amp pack...it will surpass your expectations. Well done again Artist Guitars.

Making a shopping list for the siteBy: Trilby on 23 December 2020Haven't played bass since high school and was looking to get back into it- came across this site and after a spontaneous purchase - everything i'd need was shipped to me in under a week! Looks great quality and sounded great after playing a bit. Excited to get back into it. Thanks so much for the great service! Will be coming back for more :)
If this is the Bass Line........wowBy: Mick H on 18 December 2020I wish I'd filmed the unboxing as it was like Xmas for myself, my wife and the kids. We purchased the full kit and it arrived in two boxes. The box with the bass and accessories was like a gift that kept on giving. We kept pulling out accessories and kept finding more. The addition of tightening key and spare strings was a bonus that Artist don't mention on the sales page, so a nice surprise (this was the same with the violin pack we purchased previously). The bass itself looks and plays like a quality purchase. On the amp it sounds clean with no buzz (it even arrived almost perfectly tuned - the artist tuner fixed that). Out of the box, my son and I gave it a pounding for 3-4 hours and it held tune, we've had it for a week now and played it daily and it's a beast (in a good way). Per the title, we weren't expecting much for the price, however, what we got was a very pleasant surprise (it shouldn't have been as the violin was ace as well), if this is Artist Guitar's base line, then we are now loyal customers to this Australian company. We've decided to round out our Von-Trap family with an Artist electric guitar and drum kit, might even go the banjo at some point, then there are the peddles, so many peddles. Finally, there was a minor delay in the shipping, which Artist Guitars' excellent customer service team kept us updated on, so no issues (the violin arrived early than the stated due date). I highly recommend Artist Guitars, great service, great product, Australian designed instruments and accessories, Australian Company.
Amazing value for money, but...By: Michael on 13 October 2020I'm extremely impress by this package deal. I wasn't expecting the amp to have a headphone output, and I wasn't expecting a spare set of strings in the bag. The bass is solid. It does what a bass does. It's a little neck-heavy due to the light body, but that isn't really an issue whilst playing, only whilst you're letting it hang. Now comes the but: my forward split pick-up was way too low when it arrived. I adjusted my string height first and it was still way too low. I then noticed that the screw in the pickup was down too far. It's interesting to see how they saved money in manufacturing this bass. They used foam rubber in the place of springs to hold the split pick-up up, but in my particular guitar, the foam rubber was cut on too much of an angle meaning the pick-up was bottoming out in the cavity on the low-E side. Thankfully I had recently purchased new pick-up ring mounting screws for my Les Paul, and they were a perfect fit for the pick-up mounting screws for this Artist bass, so now my Artist bass has springs just like there would be in a pricier bass.
Bass guitar packageBy: Tony Wright on 24 August 2020Very happy with recent purchase from online store. Great guitar and amp.
Couldn't be happierBy: Rebecca A Stafford on 30 December 2019Got the beginner bass guitar pack for my daughter. She never played before. Got for Xmas. Feels really good for the price I was plesantly surprised. She was able to start using out of the box and ihas already learned a few songs!!! Any issue the guus at Artist Guitars are straight on to it with prompt replies and immediate action. Pleasure to deal with. Will tell anyone who will listen.
Very good valueBy: Kevin Biggin on 27 September 2019This was bought as a gift for my grandson, apart from some transport issues and many phone calls to the extremely helpfull team at Artist Guitars this guitar and amp could not be faulted, I have see top brand guitars with a lower quality finish than this one. If you are looking for value, a good service team and an amazing 100 day return if not up to YOUR expectations look no further. I have already ordered a second guitar from them.
Great productBy: Mark Kooymans on 11 September 2019Excellent bass guitar and amplifier. Great customer service too.Many thx.
