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.

Great bass step-up for practise or beginner/interm

By: on 20 January 2022
I titled this.... 'Great bass set-up for practise or beginner/intermediate' only because the amp is just a little practise amp. The bass itself is really surprising and is much more than a beginner bass. The instrument I received looks great, had a nice clear tone and I was able to lower the action to a level that is comparable to basses much more costly (and even lower than some of those). (Lowering the action simply involved using the provided Allen keys to lower the string heights 2 turns at the bridge - and it was done with no string buzz (indicating a very straight neck) . It really is a nice easy to play clear tones jazz style bass. As a teacher for 15 years I will be recommending this set-up to all of my starting out students and the bass by itself to students looking to upgrade their instruments without having to spend a lot of money. When you consider you get a great bass; a nice little amp for practise, tuner, bag, lead and strap for very little $ its hard to beat. The only item I would consider upgrading is the strap. The one provided is functional but it is really a simple guitar strap; I think a wider and thicker bass strap is worth investing in if you're wearing this instrument for long periods of time. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at

Bass guitar & amplifier bundle

By: on 14 June 2019
I ordered the guitar bundle on a Sunday evening after a few hours of searching the net for a great price I found this deal to be the best by far so I ordered it . It arrived a few days earlier than expected on the Tuesday morning only 1 working day after the order was placed so great service and delivery . Everything was exactly as per the description and pictures on the Net with no transit damage . Everything plugs in and works perfectly . I couldn't be happier with the purchased product and the service is second to none .

Happy customer

What a great guitar. I'm a "senior" beginner but have always wanted to learn baas. By the way I'm learning I'm sure this guitar could be used for more advanced players as well. It has a quality feel to it and the small amp puts out a good enough sound to make you want to go back and practice. By the way, they are great people to deal with as well. Courteous, polite and fast. Well done.

Great bass for learning - BUT

By: on 11 November 2018
This is a great bass for the price and is amazing for starting out HOWEVER it does have some unfortunate downsides that come with a cheaper rig - the amp is good but you will find yourself upgrading very quickly, the bass itself has a really good build quality but if you are unlucky as i was you will need to visit a luthier very quickly as the frets are somewhat bad and tend to give heavy fret buzz which can be extremely annoying as you play more intricate songs. but that being said this is still an amazing product and I recommend it as a first buy for learning!

Great value

By: on 4 July 2018
Don't know a lot about bass guitars but it looks very well made and no issues so far. Bought it for my son as a starter (he normally plays guitar). He's very happy with it. Very good value for money I think..
