Warwick BC 20 Combo Bass Amplifier 20-Watt

93 out of 100. Incorporating 150+ ratings and reviews.

Warwick is a company known for premium quality electric bass guitars, but they are not done yet because they have been making their presence known in the entry-level bass amp market with the Warwick BC 20.

With its low power rating of 20W and smaller profile with 1×8″ speaker, this combo amplifier is meant for practice. It even has an Aux input for jamming along with your favorite tracks, while a headphones output allows for silent practice, as long as you pair it with good bass friendly headphones.

Other features include dedicated inputs for passive and active pickup basses, a 3-way EW, and a built-in limiter which they call DDL (Dynamic Distortion Limiter), which limits the distortion effect and protects the speaker in high volume levels.


  • 20 Watts
  • 8” Speaker
  • Controls: Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume
  • AUX-In and Headphone-Out


Many appreciate the Warwick BC 20’s tone, describing it as nice and clean sounding. They also appreciate how it maintains its good tone even at low bedroom friendly levels. Portability is also one of its strong points and often mentioned in reviews.


This amp is a bit limited in terms of features, no built-in effects to play with.


If you’re looking for a good plug-and-play clean sounding bass amp for practice, then could be for you.
