The Tech Features

Brand: Artist

Model: BA15

Amplifier Specs: 15 Watt, 4 band EQ, Auxilliary Input, Headphone Socket

Speaker: 6.5 Inch Speaker at 8 Ohms

Size: 29x29x17cm

Colour: Black

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.

Artist PB2 Bass

I wanted to give bass a go but didn't want to spend too much. The Artist bass seemed like a better choice price-wise than more mainstream guitar companies offerings. Delivery was prompt and packaged well. I must admit, I am really impressed with the quality of this bass for the price. Such good value for money. Set-up was good straight out of the box, fres edges are smooth and polished, intonation was good although did need minor adjustment. The neck is smooth and comfortable, the tuners feel strong and solid and the black finish looks fantastic with no blemishes. If you want to start your 'bass journey' then this bass should be on your short-list. Suits beginners and amateur musicians and maybe even cash-strapped semi-pros. :) The amp is great for home use and practise. It works as described.

Wonderful service and product!

Ordered my bass + amp pack on a Thursday night and it arrived Monday afternoon. I absolutely love the bass -- well made and good sound quality. I'm a beginner and the cheap price and all the accessories that came with it made it easy for me to start learning. Definitely would buy from here again and have recommended it to my friend who is also interested in learning bass!

You won't find a deal like this anywhere. The bass is great for our family who are just starting to get into music. All four boys ranging from 10 to 23 years old are absolutely stoked with it and it hasn't had a break since receiving it four weeks ago. They are playing everything they can find on You Tube from L.A.B to Metallica, you get everything you need including a kick-ass tuner. Would consider getting more Artist instruments, can be played through headphones as well.

Very good value

This 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 product
