Carvin Micro Bass BX MB15 reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the November issue of the magazine features a review of the Micro Bass BX MB15 bass guitar combo amplifier from Carvin. The equipment was delivered for review by official Carvin distributor in Poland, RockTone.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“In the open space, Carvin Micro Bass BX showed its teeth. With almost maximum amplification and setting the EQ to match the character of the stage, the sound turned out to be tonal, clean and full of harmonic content typical to bass guitar.”

“There is not many small combos with such a compact, yet very versatile and multifunctional control panel like the Carvin MB15. Setting the controls is also a pleasure, because you can feel that the knobs are not made of cheap plastic and will serve you for years.”

“This amp works perfectly with acoustic bass. Its full range and sensitivity to the nuances of tone is revealed, as it faithfully reproduces the sound of wood and phosphor bronze strings. I haven’t heard such organic and naturally breathing amplification of an acoustic bass for a long time.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
