Small enough to use as a practice amp, powerful enough to cut through the mix standing alone, easily fills your backline -- I luv this amp. I've been playing since the early seventies, this amp gives me everything I want. Tone, power, nuance, its all in this amp! Combined my old Gibson Grabber with the BA-210 -- Steve Miller and the Doobies never sounded so good! You gotta get one of these, unless you're just looking for massive.

I pick this one up and returned it the same day changed over to the TC Electronics BG250. The Ampeg rattled and cut out on me many times. For claiming it had 450 watts of power the sound output was seriously lacking, I even tried several different basses on it and that didn't help. It sounded more like 50 watts of power instead of 450w and then when I tried to push it (for the times that I won't be plugged into a pa) this disappointment started cutting out on me. I have been a musicion for over 40 years, I wanted a decent lightweight combo amp that could handle me in a 5pc group plus my 3pc group. This amp couldn't handle it.

      Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

      Ampeg scored with this one. The BA 210V2 has plenty of power for the home and small venues. It also has the ability to add extension cabinets, which would allow it to work in larger venues. I have not played any gigs with it yet, but it will be plenty a worship band. If your looking to work a combo into something larger on a budget, this is it. Plus, it is as close as you can get to an SVT sound for the price. Oh yeah, the monitor wedge ability is kinda cool too.

      Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

      As a long time owner of a full SVT stack, I didn't really expect this combo to sound as good as it does. Does it sound like a full SVT stack? No...no it does not. But it gets darn close, and in a package I can move (for short distances) in one hand. The most surprising thing was how good the Scrambler circuit works dialed in at 50% drive and 70% blend. It adds just the right amount of grit to emulate the full stack sound...I suspect I will just leave it on permanently. This fulfills all practice and small gig needs with plenty of volume and low end. I am looking forward to 2 things, trying it with the 210AV cab and seeing how the DI Out sounds into a PA.

            Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

            I have been playing the bass for over 20 years now as a hobby. I am not a professional musician. I bought this amp because I had sold my GK amp during a move and the reviews for this appeared to be honest and good. I can honestly say this sounds much better to me than the GK did (same size). I have a very used and slightly abused Fender Jazz bass that I bought 20 years ago and this Ampeg BA210V2 really brought old girl back to life! I very much like the sound this amp produces. It is not very heavy (to me) and it feels sturdy and well built. I think it looks nice too. This is the first Ampeg product I have ever bought and I am pleasantly surprised so far. It has lots of controls and options to produce different sound, and gives the option to add another speaker which I like. The case is a little funky with its shape, but I knew that going into the purchase. I don't really play gigs so don't need it setup at different angles, but I can see how other musicians would like this feature. All in all it produces a very nice sound, seems to have a ton of power and everything just appears to be quality components to me. I feel like my old bass is brand new again. Would recommend.

              I've had 8 assorted brand amps looking for the right sound and best value in a multiple use amp. I kept going back to Ampeg. This is it if you practice, garage band, or gig for a crowd. Add a 15" cabinet if you want that extra boom and you'll have it all.

              Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

              If you are running your bass through the PA subs, you either play your amp loud enough to hear yourself and blow your band mates off stage, or you turn down for your band mates and then cannot hear yourself. So a tilt-back design is what you need. I never liked Ampeg before, but tried the newer V2 combo Series 1-15 model at GC and was so impressed I immediately ordered the BA210-V2. At only 48 lbs., and awesome tone, this solved my live stage problem. Did two gigs with it last week and finally, I was able to hear myself loud enough to feel the groove, and setting it up on the 60 degree tilt-back I did not irritate the rest of the band.

              283 watts rms. stand alone, or add another cabinet to make use of the 450 watt capacity. However, I did not feel the need for another cabinet with combo. My band has the floor monitors quite loud and with this combo, backing off on the bass tone a little, and raising up the mids, I could hear myself very clearly, and feel it as well.

              To solve the lack of a pre/post switch (ie. the di signal out will be affected if/when you adjust the amp volume/tone, I purchased the Ampeg SCR-DI preamp. The SCR-DI will allow you to play with the settings on your amp all you want without affecting the signal to the PA. And you can adjust the tone setting to the PA on the SCR-DI which is a vast improvement over the typical flat signal from built-in amp DI connection. The SCR-DI also is awesome for headphone practice with a volume setting for auxiliary imput (the combo has this feature also) which takes up very little room for at home practice.

                Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

                This amp lives up to the Ampeg name. I could feel the power just by turning it on. It took me less than 15 minutes to dial it in. The sound was incredible. The Scrambler's really cool if your going to play some older classic rock. I probably won't use it much. Overall, the amp is very versatile. I brought it to the studio/bandroom and both of my guitarists and my drummer were stunned by the sound and power I was getting out of it. One of my guitarists loves loud, low end bass. He told me to turn down and thin it out a bit. We can get pretty loud. I had it around 4 with my basses about 3/4 up. Tons of headroom, even as a stand alone. I can't imagine what it would sound like with another 2 10's hooked up to it, which is another great feature. Not even sure if I'll ever need it.

                  Comments about Ampeg BA210V2 2x10 Bass Combo Amplifier:

                  My normal rig consists of a 77 music man hd 130 head and a ampeg 6x10 cab. I plugged in and went back and forth between the two amps until I was able to very closely replicate the tone that I have with my music man setup. The scrambler mode really allows you to get the tubed tone through a solid head, or go over board on distortion (not my sound, but some musicians prefer it) I made sure to run the Ba2-10 into the 6x10 cab and experience what it was like for a full 8x10 sound driven off the 450 watt head. I was floored, punchy, aggressive, ballsy and that Classic ampeg tone was there. My intent was to go with mark bass for the portability /weight. However, the ampeg tone and more than enough power was available at only 48 lbs, vs 44 for mark bass. This is real no brainer, and so far there has been zero let down.

                  I have been playing for over 20 years, and gig 3x a week. So far it's held up and exceeded expectations!
