Artist APB Black Bass Guitar w/ Accessories

Please Note: We are in the process of changing model names of some of our guitars. The PB2 and APB are the same specification.

We believe it's important to have a great quality instrument to kick off your musical career. These bass guitars are designed to be easy to play so they are a great starting point if you want to pick up a bass for the first time. This is a full-size bass and is recommended for Adults or Children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m).

This classic design is very similar to models used for decades on all of your favourite recordings! This style of bass is absolutely timeless, and is great for any style of music from funk, to blues to slap and rock'n'roll!

Our price is always lower than a retail store (often by 30-40%), and we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value instrument at a great price.

Why wait to start learning bass guitar when you could get one of our great APB bass guitars and be playing in no time at all?

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

I knew that when ordering this base it was on back order. They kept me informed of delays and let us know when it arrived and sent the base guitar out straight away. The product was exactly what I ordered and my son was very happy with his xmas present. Thank you

Good price for an excellent set.

Bass Guitar has an excellent finish, I needed to adjust it a little (truss rod) but the necessary tools came for a better sound and without regrets. I was impressed with the amplifier, small and of incredible quality, being able to be carried everywhere. Quality and good price for everything it offers, the accessories are all you need to have at hand. Very happy with the purchase. I had to contact the head office about delivery and the communication was quick and satisfactory with Molly's help.

Great beginner bass or platform for modding.

By: on 18 May 2022
Have owned this bass & amp for about 6 months. The bass itself is a very solid piece of kit for someone looking to get into playing bass or someone who wants a nicely priced P-Bass platform to mod. The neck is a nice thickness, slightly slimmer than some P-Bass necks which along with a decent satin finish makes it really nice to play. The bass overall is SUPER light but resonant. I had some grounding issues with a pronounced hum that was a bit more than I'm used to with split coils, however, Artist was ready and willing to provide a replacement. I ended up just shielding the cavity and fiddling with the ground wires which brought it down to a good standard. The pick-up output is quite low, but can be gained up to produce what you need and is absolutely fine for the bargain price this comes at. The amp is a bit muddy and doesn't inspire me but a beginner is likely to not be bothered with this. Overall, great kit which would absolutely shine with some upgraded electronics and plays better than a Squier for sure.
