Excellent Performer
Mountainhop, 09.09.2020
First I ordered a B-stock TUBE15, but alas on the way here it was heavily damaged during transport. Thomann however attended and fixed this problem correctly, so a few days later I received a beautiful new amp, nicely packed two times, and the bounced one was picked up direcly. Nice work Thomann Freunde!!

For this kind of money, building a 12 inch A-quality Seventy 80 Britpop speaker in an almost perfectly refined multiple tube combo, including a spring reverb?

Someone either made a calculation mistake or certainly knows his way around the world how to make a good deal come to us, being the happy customer.

The knobs do their good work, especially the extra Tone possibily is a brilliant feature to get your setting right plugging in various guitars with various pickups, from a Danelectro 59 NOS, a Jimi 69 strat, a Micawber Tele, a Fender FMT, and a very fat Gibson SG, they all sound great on this convincing whitish tube amp with the black front panel and his red eye.

Also my pedalboard works fabulous on the send and return connections in the back of this rather light combo contraption, our beneficiary must have been saving a few coins there, for a 12 inch combo with a very loud mouth in the lowest price range that is.
For loud she certainly is, and also sharp like a razor.
I read on the internet in a Sweetwater review on the Seventy 80 speaker that he considered way too sharp, but in my humble opinion that is the whole purpose of a good amp. If you buy a Mesa Boogie combo e.g., which b.t.w.costs tenfold this one here, you will find that the Mesa Boys are putting all their knowlegde & effort in their products to especially pump the clearest and sharpest tone thinkable out of their amps, as compact and as loud as they can achieve.

And then, there was...... this TUBE15....from Harley Benton....

Get one while you can!
Great work you Harley Benton & Thomann guys!

Don’t miss the beautiful review on YouTube that Dave Simpson made for us all on this amp.....AMAZING!

Thanks for reading, I’m off to my Tuby Tuesday to play...

Definitely a keeper!

This was probably the quickest a new amp has grown on me, the quality of tone this produces is unbelievably good.

For me there is little in how an amp looks, or how much it cost, only what noise it makes when you use it, this got my seal of approval within a couple of notes.

I have been a solid state amp user for decades, though I have recently been noticing how instruments all sound the same through modern amps, even the amps all sound the same, I think we have all been there with new amps; dozens of preset tones, none of which exactly get the tone you are looking for, so we spend hours fiddling with knobs, playing the same riff, fiddling with more knobs etc.
Then I bumped into this and got thinking that maybe a valve amp is the way forward. I did a little research on the topic, watched a few online demos of top end ones and ended up deciding to give the budget option a try.

Being my first all valve amp i am not really qualified to judge this amp against others in its league but as far as I am concerned it ticks all the boxes.

I opted for the 15w model on the grounds of having reverb and independent gain control, features which i felt i would regret not having...and I was quite right in that assumption.

This amp has enough features to be versatile yet simple to use, i set the eq flat when I got it and have yet to need to alter it, I think that says it all really.

Playing everything from my US strat, Harley Benton cheap guitars and proper vintage American guitars this baby delivers the goods in style and is addictive. I thought my strat was starting to sound rubbish, but it was clearly my amp as plugged into this it growls and purrs with overtones of pure vintage goodness. It made every instrument sound unique too, I could tell by listening what was being played.

In conclusion this is my best purchase in years, and I am not just blowing smoke, this amp is a piece of kit I don't want to be without.

Superb. Buy one!!!
Boabby50, 08.11.2020
Had this for about a month now, and am delighted with my purchase.
Sound is amazing and compares very favourably with previous big name amps of higher wattage.
I use this mainly for smaller gigs against an electronic drum kit running through a PA and it holds up well, and is surprisingly loud for a rating of 15 watts. Like most valve amps it benefits from using a higher volume and Gain level to drive the valves, and controlling it from the guitar volume pot. So spanky clean to drive in one knob.
I especially like the gain control which runs from very clean to delightful warm break up. Also the "tone" control which allows quick balancing when changing between instruments.
My usual guitars are a USA Strat Plus, and a Takamine Santa Fe and both are handled well by this small amp. Did I mention it is extremely lighweight in comparison to my other equipment, but sound quality definately does not suffer.
As to longevity I can't comment at the moment, but it seems solidly built with all valves well secured, so doesn't seem to mind being thrown into a car boot.
All in I am extremely happy with this amp, with the only downside being the mirrored control panel, which although very attractive, makes it a little diffficult so see your settings in some lighting conditions. In saying this once you have your EQ set, very little adjustment is neccessary during a gig.
A winner!!!

Amazing
Motherspot, 07.02.2020
This amplifier is truly a wonderful thing. I used to have a Fender Blues junior...used it for 10 years but never was really content with it...it needed tot be too loud (in my setup) to get an acceptable sound out of it....so last year i decided to sell it...i than bought an Orange Crunch 35 RT.. a solid state..it worked OK for a few gigs but...never really caught me..the smaller 10" speaker didn't deliver so good..sounded boxy from time to time. I could use it on lower volumes but ...it just was'nt it. Started longing for an affordable tube amp...last week i googled and came upon a Monoprice 15 watt tube amp with a celestion speaker..for around 200.- US...read & saw the reviews..most were raving....but only available overseas....i went to Thomann and suddenly i spotted the HB 15 Watt Tube Celestion...an exact copy of the Monoprice , judging the photo's..., i just guess they come from the same factory . Immediately ordered the amp. Within two days i was playing through it. What a great sounding thing it is! Beautiful, full sounding cleans and and cranking up the gain give smooth breakup....it's very loud!..loud enough for gigging without mics in smaller venues. The sound can be warm and trebbly as you wish..there's enough tone control bass, mids, treble and tone...another feature is the possibility to go to 1 watt..for home use..this works very well and it keeps ( a little less) the same warm tube characteristics. There is also a quite nice sounding reverb on board.In my ears this amp sounds (much) better then my previous Fender Blues Junior...it takes compressor and ( Fulltone) OCD pedals very well in front (lower the gain-use volume) and atmospheric pedals (delay-reverb) in the sent-return (not available on the FBJ ) give beautiful sounds. Clean and overdrive. Love it! (already considering buying a second one, for when this one dies, but no worries it looks very well made, knobs and cabinet feel solid, great color with the cream tolex, an excellent handlebar of pu leather and i think it's gonna last. Love it! Love it! & Love it! ( If Harley Benton should bring out a head of this one or same quality, i would buy it for my Celestion vintage 30 cabinet.)
