This little baby here will blow your mind with its simplicity and its power. Before buying it I was between this one and the Bugera V22. I actually chose this because of its size and price that were slightly different from the V22, a friend of mine has the V22 and I loved playing on it so I was a bit skeptic of the BC15 but I have to say I was not disappointed whatsoever. It has a really warm tune. I use with my Strat, it has 69's Custom Fender single coils and when I turn the BC15 bass knob a bit up, bam. I usually play blues so it delivers what I expect from it. I've used it in a couple of small gigs and the louder I've played it the better it sounded. I wouldn't recommend for a big scheme since it's only 15W but otherwise - specially if you're looking for a good tune for practicing (and for that the Phones input it's marvelous as well) it's guaranteed satisfaction. The Gain knob also doesn't fall far behind, I haven't spend much time since I'm always with my Tube Screamer plugged in, but from what I've tried it's pretty good.
