The BA115HP is stripped down and ready to rock.

Simple and to the point, the BA115HP has a 220W power section, custom 15" woofer, and 1" compression tweeter with a variable pad to adjust the crossover level. The straightforward-yet-effective EQ controls deliver lots of tonal flexibility, especially in conjunction with the Style response control. An XLR direct out allows patching to a mixing board or recording console while the built-in digital chromatic tuner and mute switch make it easy to tune silently.

    Well I have had the ba115hpt for over 5 years and I must say this thing is great. Mine is the 220w version with the tube preamp and I have not had a single issue ever. I can't believe this many ppl had problems with this combo as these are the first reviews I have read. I have played this amp with a church band in front of 1000+ ppl all the way down to practicing in my old appt with headphones and this amp sounds great doing it all, and took the travel well too. I play guitar and bass, and this is the best sounding combo I have ever heard for any price. I can get real punchy mids w sharp highs and full bass (to cut through a muddy mix), alll the way to earth rattling lows with highs rolled back.. This amp can do it all with style. This was my first ampeg way back when and this is still my go to bass amp when the size venue is right. My only gripes are that it has no effects loop or compressor (which I would like to run). this is your grab and go bass amp which sounds it best with nothing but a bass plugged into it. I'm the type of player who likes to feel the music and this amp definitely delivers. It'll make your nose hairs rattle if your too close to it. I've played in my post-grunge band with a LOUD drummer and the amp performed flawlessly, actually he was asking to turn it down. It sucks to hear about all the ppl who have had problems with this amp but I simply love mine. Simply fantastic tone at any volume. out of my many guitars/amps/basses/effects this is my one piece of irreplaceable equipment (well maybe my 86' Gretsch country club too). I get reminded every time I play this amp how great it really sounds. For the longest time, this was the most accurate tuner i owned! i just wish I could hook up another ba115 cab up to it. I would buy this amp again in a second, but after these reviews I'd get the warranty too.

    Got this amp for church about 3 years ago, and in that time, have had it repaired TWICE. First time was for the tuner emitting a low beep constantly (and pitches while playing). After a couple months, same problem PLUS overall power kept cutting in/out. Finally had the repair guys cut the tuner from the signal chain & fixed the power issues which was a bad power cable connection & grounding problem.
    The amp works fine now, but it doesn't get that Ampeg breakup that I always wanted. The Gain does almost nothing for it. It does get loud enough, but no dirt. If you want a very clean sound or want good warmth for practice, this is your amp... After you send it to shop...

          Comments about Ampeg BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp:

          Well, I was really skeptical for a long time about this amp because I took caution to a lot of the bad reviews I read. I have the 100 watt BA 115 and it sounds great, so I wanted the 220 watt one. Well I finally took the chance and bought it, and glad I did because it's a real monster. I really can't understand so many bad reviews unless previous versions were just not good and had problems. But mine sounds absolutely awesome. Probably the best sounding amp I've ever had (and I've had a lot to compare it to) It has way more than enough power for any situation. So people who say it's not loud enough, I don't get! This thing will blow your house down if you turn the gain past 2 with the master up. I tried it at about 5 and thought it was gonna break my windows and rattle the roof off. It's clean and very deep. Crank the Master to 8, 9 or 10 and use the Gain as your volume, I doubt you'll turn past half way for any inside gig. If you crank the Gain all the way and use the Master as your volume it's not as good. Or just find a happy medium. Anyway, I love this thing and would definitely recommend it. It has that nice, solid, clean, smooth, deep, DEEP Ampeg sound and tone. The on board digital tuner is very nice too and works great. I'm glad I took a chance and ignored the negative reviews because it's a great amp. Hope this helps anyone who is, or has been leery like I was. One word of caution: The wheels are for moving it only! You don't have to put the castors on that come with it. If you do need them to roll it somewhere, DO NOT keep them on while you play because they will make it rattle. They go on and come off very easily in about 5 seconds if you need them though. Just pull them off and set the amp on it's rubber feet or you'll think the amp itself is rattling to death when it's only the hard wheels. Personally, I just pick it up and move it and will probably never use the wheels, not unless I had to roll it far. Good luck!

          Blown amp

          By Carlos Flores

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Ampeg BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp:

          I understand that the bass amp was used but when i read that it is in good condition - meaning: only noticeable surface scratches but PERFECT sound , that is what i was expecting. Unfortunately, i received the amp in quite excellent surface condition but the speaker was blown. Every time i give the amp some volume the sound gets messed up. Unfortunate case of trusting the quality description given on the site...

          I personaally bought this amp used about 6 months or so ago, and have never had a single problem with it, it is great to jam out with friends or just play by yourself. I have never had any issues and i feel for all you guys for it dying within a month, that did not happen for me. I think it is a great piece of equipment

          Comments about Ampeg BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp:

          Great sounding amp, easy to transport, and use. My only complaint it that i've had to re- mount the rubber feet several times, because of the cheap screws used to install them, and when i received the amp, i found nearly every fastener loose on the cabinet, i retightened all the loose hardware making sure not to strip the board. these loose fasteners could contribute to undesired rattles. But aside from that it's a great amp.
          I got tired of lugging my old and very hevy Harke rig, so i needed a good smaller bass amp for smaller venues. A friend had a BA 115 HP and i tried it out, It blew me away! So i ordered one and been using it almost exclusively for over a year, every weekend. It also looks good along side my vintage B-15 N .

          AMPEG BA115HP IS A JOKE

          Comments about Ampeg BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp:

          .
          After trying out two at local stores (both had problems of low volume, even cranked to 10 on master volume and gain. I assumed they just happened to be duds. I ordered one anyway, banking on the Ampeg name and reputation. Speaker buzzes, and even though RATED at 220 watts, cranked to 10, sounds pitiful. Not loud enough to feel the vibration. My old, beat up Fender BXR 200-watt sounds about twice as loud. VERY disappointed in Ampeg quality. Maybe others out there lucked out with good ones, but this is the third in a row I've tried, so that tells me that this line of amps has a problem. Just based on my limited experience with the BA115HP... I will never trust Ampeg again.

          Comments about Ampeg BA115HP 220 Watt 1x15" Bass Series Combo Amp:

          Left my old amp in a friends care and he broke it, received this as a replacement. I play in a local blues/alt rock band with a powerhouse drummer and a few jazz combos throughout the city; this thing just could not deliver for very long... Its got a very sweet tone but I think ampeg tried putting too much power in such a small component and when played at the levels needed for gigging it would be shaking all over the place. Connected to a mix system you get an irritating hiss. About 2 weeks after having the amp, the speaker shorted out and made a noise comparable to a grass weed eater. I was still within my 30 days at guitar center so I traded it in for a fender rumble 150, just what I needed. :) Not for gigging musicians thats for sure...
