  • Gain button to activate the Lead/Distortion channel.
  • Mid-shift button to creatively shape the sound.
  • CD Input so you can play along with your own music.
  • Output jack for headphones.

What We Like

  • Although the controls are basic it is possible to create a nice range of sounds.
  • The speakers are said to be “vintage-tuned” and they deliver a classic guitar sound.
  • It’s light and compact for carrying around.
  • Very affordable.
  • Classic retro look.

What We Don’t Like

  • No volume control on the CD Line-in for your music.
  • A slight buzzing sound on louder volumes.
  • The general durability and feel of the amp shows that it is a lower-range price-point.


While there are more durable combo amps available, the Bugera BC15 is decent low-watt, basic tube amp available at a good price.
