I recently started playing the bass again after a LONG lay-off. I use to have an Ampeg back in the '70's and it was used. By the way, I know the guy who has it and it still cranks. I bought the BA115 about 2 months ago and it's a really good amp. It looks great and it's very sturdy. The tone of it is good at low or high volumes. It doesn't have the distortion channels and tuner like some of the other combo's but I could care less. I play an Ibanez BTB400 and an SRX390 through it. Each bass has it's own sound but the Ampeg handles both great. If you need an amp for home, practice, or small gigs, I recommend this amp. You get an Ampeg with great sound and power and you can't beat the price.

I bought this on the reviews mostly, but it sounded pretty good in the store. This thing has a constant "hiss" that is very annoying - on line research says this is normal for Ampeg. Four days later I exchanged it for another brand. Nothing else in the stores "hiss" like this. It was not very sensitive or versatile as it seemed it should be - it's just an amp and seems low on the output for a 100 amp combo. First and last Ampeg, although I hear the tube amps are the bomb.

Pure Ampeg Sound

By Mark from Orange County

from Ca

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

Well- I just started jamming with others and really wanted to see if this little 100 watt amp would hold up against drums and guitars. Man did it ever. Did I need to crank it up? Sure, probably 3/4 volume. But, the sound was as pure as when I was playing in my house alone. No buzz, no hum, just great sound. Ampeg is coming out with a 300 series soon and I can't wait to hear that, but, this 100 watt combo is just super. MARK

Excellent Combo!

By Big Daddy

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

This amp might be small, but it is perfect for small gigs and rehearsals. Great ampeg tone, and enough volumn to carry it's own. Probably the only amp you'll need unless you are playing large venues or arenas.

can't go wrong with ampeg

By bassmasta

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

Very good amp. I use this amp everyday at my school's band room. This thing packs lots of volume and lots of tone which is the exact thing I look for in an amp. It doesn't have many features, but the quality makes up for that. This amp is great for practise, recording, and possibly small gigs. If you buy this you'll be happy with your purchase.

This amp is perfect. It gets loud enough for playing by yourself or playing with other people. Perfect for any type of music, there are a lot of possible settings and sounds. Highly recommended for any bass player of any level of playing.

I used to own this amp but I sold it because I needed some cash. Boy am I sad that I did. This amp is allot of fun to play on and the sound is great. I would reccomend this amp to any beginner or pro. This amp will last you a long time. I intend to buy another one very soon.

Quite Possibly The Perfect Practice Amp

By Stick

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

I just bought this amp yestersay. I had been looking at the Fender Bassman series, but when I tired this one, I felt the tone was superior to the Fender's. I would recommend this to any serious basment gigger or anyone looking for a sweet practice amp.

Sweetly Simplistic

By MrBass77

from Bowmanstown, PA

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

I feel like I've sinned in the past after buying this baby. I've tried two other not so petite combos before this one, and the Ampeg BA115 has schooled the competition. Granted my VOX really has good tone for a 50 year old double vintage amp, the BA115 absolutely destroys the Fender Rumble I used to own. Here's the kicker! It's cheap as dirt! I feel like the guitar center paid ME to buy it! Value is top of the line, Sound quality is too good to be true, but I do wish that the BA115 would have a little more equalization possibilities. All in all, Ampeg BA115 is worth more than what I paid for it. Seems like it knows what artist I wanna imitate when I play cover songs!

Good Beginner

By William

from California

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

This was my very first amp that I received and the manufacturing quality is top notch. Even with only 100W you will be able to hear it loud but not always clearly as it seems to produce a muddy disorganized sound when really cranked up. That is why I highly recommend a DI box of some kind to make your signal clean(sansamp DI box for example)!!! The EQ is OK and it is a bummer there are is no gain at all(DI BOX WILL FIX THAT). There is 1 HUGE problem with this amp. When I turn it on and it is warming up with my bass plugged in it produces a high pitch frequency sound(and no it is not because my treble is turned really high up). But after you start playing the noise disappears and everything is GOOD!!. Do i recommend this as a first amp? YES. As a second. NO!!! There are so many other amps out there that one will want once they have become better bass players. But the BA-115 is a good amp with good pricing so where can you go wrong?

Wonderful for Practice

By Colin Webb

from Warner Robins, GA

Comments about Ampeg BA115 Bass Combo:

I bought this amp along with my Ibanez SR700 after falling in love with the buttery tone in the store. The combination is fantastic for practice alone; the tone is smooth and buttery with mild EQ settings, and allows for a very wide range of sounds, from a Beatles punch to a funky twang to a jazz hum, all the way to a metal growl. Unfortunately, if you like a smooth tone you have to keep the EQ and volume at a very mild level, and it gets muddy if you try to bring the volume up on a clean tone. If you want a loud metal growl this is fine, but trying to keep that elusive delicious clean tone in a band you need something with more power and clarity.
