A band's rhythm section isn't the same without a talented bass player holding down the foundation of each song. For this reason, every bass player deserves to showcase their grooves with an amplifier that's clear, punchy, and delivers just the right amount of grit - and for that, a bass amplifier that's powered by vacuum tubes is the way to go. In fact, today's tube combo bass amplifiers are a compact, all-in-one solution to enjoying what makes bass tube amps so great, but minus the transportation issues that come with heavy heads and cabinets.
Most, if not all, experienced bass players are familiar with the name Ampeg - after all, they've been a leading bass amp manufacturer since 1946. In addition to their highly regarded heads and cabinets, Ampeg's combo amps are also quite popular, and their BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp is ideal for bassists who play small to medium-sized venues. Featuring straightforward-yet-effective EQ controls, an XLR direct output for patching to a mixing board or recording console, input gain and master and even a built-in tuner, this tube combo bass amp is a top seller for more than one reason.
This selection is also loaded with previously-used tube combo bass amplifiers: vintage beauties from companies like Fender, Premier and Vox regularly turn up. Are you a hobbyist who enjoys weekend jams with buddies and wants a portable Fender Bassbreaker 007? Maybe you want your sound to be felt in the chests of everyone at your next live show and think a Mesa Boogie MPLUSE Venture will do just the trick? There's a good chance you'll find what you're looking for here.

As you can see, a wide range of tube combo bass amplifiers are available on today's market, and this catalog is always updating with models to suit every taste and budget - so try to check back as often as you can.
