15-watt lunchbox head with gritty tube tone

The popularity of so-called “lunchbox amps“ is increasing all the time – which should come as no surprise, since these compact amplifiers boast a range of features to rival those of their larger counterparts whilst taking up only a fraction of the space. Harley Benton now presents the Mighty-15TH, a compact powerhouse that fits squarely into this category and guarantees authentic tube tone thanks to its class-A all-tube circuitry. What is more, its 15-watt output means it bridges the gap between living room, rehearsal room, and smaller stages. The Mighty-15TH comes in a robust metal housing and features a three-band EQ section, Gain and Volume controls, an additional Boost switch, and a power reduction switch that allows the amp’s output power to be roughly halved. To make it look even cooler, this amp also has an indicator tube prominently placed behind its front panel, which displays the preamp’s status and gain level by varying in brightness.

Get the tone you want in no time flat

The preamp stage of the Mighty-15TH features two 12AX7 tubes and can cover everything from glassy cleans through to punchy overdrive, all served up with a tube amp’s characteristic open and dynamic tone through whatever speakers are connected. The Boost switch provides an extra portion of gain, while the three-band EQ is highly effective in shaping the amp’s tone to suit the characteristics of the instrument being played. With its top-mounted metal carrying handle and four rubber feet, the Mighty-15TH is easy to transport and can be set down gently, and its rear panel features three outputs suitable for both 8-ohm and 16-ohm speakers, allowing various different cabinet types to be connected. The option of reducing the power stage’s output from 15 to 7 watts is also a very practical feature which allows you to enjoy true power amp saturation from the two EL84 tubes at lower volume levels.

All-tube tone on a budget

The Mighty-15TH comes at the kind of affordable price that customers have come to expect from Harley Benton, making it perfect for beginners looking to enjoy all the benefits of a real all-tube amp right from the start as well as for advanced players who need a second amp either for home use or for rehearsals and small jam sessions. Thanks to its ease of operation, this single-channel amp lets you dial in a wealth of great tones in next to no time – from clear and warm to hard and heavy – and the three-band EQ section makes fine-tuning your sound child’s play.

Forget the cost, this is a fantastic little valve amp. Sounds great to my ears. If you factor in the cost, it's kind of unbelievable.
The only thing I'm not keen on is the indicator valve. It makes it look a little gimmicky, but other than that, awesome. It's going to be my emergency spare when the world gets back to allowing live music. And something to play with at home.

WOW! What an amplifier! Just add an overdrive pedal and some delay/reverb and it sings! Plenty loud enough to compete with a live drummer and when you hit the overdrive pedal it's almost organic (or something that sounds like it!). Almost.......

Neugier,die letztlich belohnt wird
Fury 11.10.2020
Als ich hörte das Harley Benton einen 15 Watt Röhrenverstärker für unter 300 Euro auf den Markt gebracht hat wurde ich neugierig. Meine bisherigen Amps renommierter Hersteller waren alle deutlich teurer. Also habe ich mir den Verstärker online bestellt. Wie immer ein toller Service von Thomann und der Amp war nach 2 Werkstagen da.
Die Verpackung ist einfach und schlicht aber durchaus funktionell. Alles ist heil angekommen. Leider war der Verstärker beim auspacken leicht verschmutzt. Einmal mit dem Poliertuch drüber und alles ist gut.
Angeschlossen habe ich den Amp an eine 1x12 Vox BC 112 Cabinet. Als Gitarre dient eine Statocaster mit 3 Fat50‘s . Alle Regler auf die zwölf, 15 Watt , losgeht‘s. Was meine Ohren dann hörten löste höchste Verzückung in mir aus. Typische Röhre brillant, klar und bei stärkerem Anschlag leicht angezerrt so wie ich es mag. Das kann doch nicht sein dachte ich und dann kam auch schon der erste Wermutstropfen. Leises raschelndes Geräusch beim Drehen an den Potis,ein knallendes Geräusch beim Ausschalten. Viel Features gibt es nicht, schade eine Effektschleife oder ein Reverb wären toll. Also habe ich mein TC Electronic Skysurfer herausgekratzten. Damit versteht sich der Verstärker ausgezeichnet, ohne Nebengeräusche und sattem Klang. Ja dachte ich, das isser der perfekte Amp für kleines Budget.
Doch bereits nach ca. 3h Spielzeit zickten die Röhren. Es rasselte, der Amp wurde mal laut, mal leise, einfach so. Also zurück zum Hersteller dachte ich. Ich hatte aber noch einen gebrauchten Satz TAD Röhren passend in der Schublade. Nun zeigte der Verstärker seine benutzerfreundliche Seite. Innerhalb einer Viertelstunde waren alle Röhren gewechselt.
Kein Knallen beim ausschalten, kein Rauschen oder Rasseln, keine Lautstärkeschwankungen. Da ich früher oder später so oder so auf TAD gewechselt hätte bleibt der Verstärker jetzt da, leider mit einem ordentlichen Aufpreis ,der sich aber lohnt.

Fazit: Toller Verstärker mit Mängeln in der Verarbeitung.
Nachtrag: Hatte nach 2 Tagen trotz neuer Röhren wieder
Lautstärkeschwankungen und Rauschen/Rasseln. Wahrscheinlich ein sogenanntes Montagsgerät.Ging dann schweren Herzens doch zurück.
