Great tone! (BA-108 v2)

By Pjones9, 19/07/2014
This is a perfect amp for practice or for beginners. It features tools like a 3-band EQ, MP3 input and a headphone input as well. With power of 25 watts and an 8'' high output speaker this amp delivers the classic ampeg tone with a great mid-low frequency range. It also has a line out so it can also be used for live performances or studio work as well.

UTILIZATION

Aside from their durability and resistance, most classic ampeg amps also have great warmth and tone control; and the BA-108 is not an exception. The sound you can obtain ranges from a low frequency thump to an agressive, percussive treble. The manual is clear and sufficient too.

SOUNDS

I used my Fender Jazz Bass with the BA-108 and I was quite happy with the sound I got from it. The tone I use when I record or perform depends on the musical piece I'm playing; sometimes I want a very clear, mid-low range sound, to enhance articulations and the deep end, but sometimes I also like to have a percussive, trebly tone, but without losing the low range frequencies. With this amp you can get both easily and with amazing clarity and potency; even if it's just a 25W amp you can feel the punch when you're practicing.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like the most about Ampeg is the tone and quality of the sound. I have tried many other models, (Fender, Marshall, etc.) and while some of them can also give you a nice tone, I think Ampeg still has the most clarity even if you are playing with a high treble setting; it makes no unwanted noises (cracks and hisses) and remains loyal to the sound of the instrument. Definitely would buy again, I haven't found a better amp for practice yet.

Solid-state, but AMPEG all the same (SVT-450H)

By papalolo, 07/12/2014
Light amp head with a big sound
Used particularly with a 4x10 classic and a 1x15 classic
I play an active Fender Jazz Bass, so I get conventional results, with the metallic Fender attack and the muffled AMPEG sound... I love it.
The only downside is its sensitivity to interferences.
Certain LED lights make it sizzle. At home, my amp was 3 feet away but then I moved 6 feet away and had no problems.
You need to be careful when you play in unfamiliar stages.
