The Heritage B-15 from Ampeg is an all-tube bass amplifier and speaker combo, featuring the classic flip-top design which allows you to store the amp head inside the cabinet for convenient storage and transport. Hand-built and hand-wired in the U.S.A., it was designed to render the tone of the classic amplifiers made in the 60's. The Heritage B-15 features the circuit paths of both a 1964 and 1966 B-15, including classic Baxandall EQ controls and 6SL7 octal preamp tubes, along with a bias switch, recreating each year's distinctive bias methodology.

The flip-top cabinet features the vintage double-baffle design, and houses a custom-designed 15" Eminence driver. The Heritage B-15 meets the performance, look and tone of the original, down to each and every component.
