I bought the amp at Mars music in Houston Texas about 6 months ago. I wanted to learn how to play the bass, a friend got me interested in it. I got a bass pack deal with a squier p-bass, the amp only cost about 150 dollars.

The thing that I like most about it is that it is compact and easy to take from place to place. It has all of the necessary controls for the beginer like myself. Because I have other roomates another good feature is the headphone output so I can practice without bothering my roomates.

The things about the unit that i dont like are the fact that at higher volume it seems like it distorts fairly easy. I have played on bigger amps before and it seems like the amp is harder to play on than others i have played on before. I had the opportunity to play on a Fender bassman 400 with my giutar and I sounded twice as good and twice as clear on the bigger amp.

The consruction of the amp is great. its very solid and i believe it will last a very long time if taken good care of. all of the controls on the amp are smooth when moving and have good action on them. The front grill is heavy duty along with the cird also.

I think that the frontman 15B is the perfect amp for the begining bass player like myself. I have come a very long way since i first started playing and the an=mp that I have has only helped me out.
