OVERVIEW

Portable, powerful, and toneful.

At just 50 pounds, you'll wonder how Ampeg crammed so many features into it's BA300/210 bass combo. Although it packs dual 10" LF drivers, a HF horn (with Level control), and 300 Watts of pure Ampeg output into its small frame, this combo is ultra-transportable. It even includes a set of removable casters, so you're ready to roll whenever you've got a gig or need to take it to the garage for practice. The bass amp gives you all the Ampeg tone-shaping you've grown accustomed to thanks to its 12AX7 tube preamp, Style control, 3-Band EQ, and Ultra-High/Low switches.

In order to keep the weight factor low without sacrificing power output, Ampeg integrated a Class-D switching power supply. They also gave it a variable compressor and a selectable pre/post XLR tube DI with Level control. All together, it makes Ampeg BA300/210 amplifier ideal for the semi-pro to professional player seeking superb tone-sculpting options, extreme portability, and SVT-level output.

  • LF driver: 2 x 10" speakers
  • HF driver: 1 x HF horn w/Level control

I have read reviews on this amp that were very discouraging. People said that this amp rattles and buzzes, but i have never had a problem with it. As with any tube amp, you have to let the amp warm up for a moment or it will buzz, but this happens with even the most expensive amps. This ampeg has absolutely great tone and it is very versatile. It's nice because I can get great tone quietly when recording (the di is great for this), or crank it up for a show. Don't be deceived by it's size, this amp has huge sound. If your looking for an ampeg, but don't have two grand to drop on an svt, this is as close as your going to get. worth the price, you wont be disappointed.

I'm reporting back after a year of use. I gave this amp a favorable initial review with a wait and see attitude. Well my worst fears were realized and I got rid of this junk just like my other 3 Chinese Ampegs. It started out great, great tone, nice features and then the cabinet started buzzing and vibrating jusy like the others. The chassis on these things just don't hold up. The support screws come loose and it basically just starts to fall apart. I took it apart a few times and tightened all the screws that support the amp section but they kept on coming loose again. For the price you pay for Chinese Ampegs these just are not worth the price.Ampeg better wake up soon because they are losing market share very fast with this junk they're putting out. Just my opinion.

Come on Ampeg...

By Rooster-LUGJX

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this amp because of the size, output, and brand name. i played about five shows and maybe eight practices with it when the thing just suddenly started making a god awfull sound. when i took it in to be looked at they told me that the power amp was blown. sounded great up until then. save your money and buy american or get the extended warranty.

Little Big Amp

By Chris Ashley

from The great white north.

See all my reviews

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this little amp because I wanted something portable with great sound and when needed,VOLUME! This amp delivers! It can keep up with my buddies 100 watt guitar halfstack! Mine does not rattle - I don't sit on it nor have I dropped it down some stairs. However it does loose a star in the quality section, the knobs don't point straight at the markings on the face of the amp. And I've just read another reviewer state he uses a 115 cab with the line out, I want to try that, some guy at ampeg e-mailed me back saying that was not possible!?!

Its an Ampeg Alright

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

This bass amp gets the punchiest and creamiest tones Ive ever heard. ITs perfect for funk, rock, metal, jazz, and ska. I play grindcore and this amp just fits my punchy tone needs perfectly.

It's been good so far

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this to replace an Ampeg BA115HPT which had cabinet buzzing issues. I took a chance getting this because I think Ampeg has some design flaw issues with their combos. The Ampeg BA115HPT that I traded to get this was my third amp that had serious buzzing problems when hitting certain notes. This one hasn't started to do this yet and it's been a good amp. I question the the SVT level output claims. It's rated at 300 watts but this amp doesn't get very loud. I think my old amp at 220 watts had more power. So far other than lack of power this has been an OK amp

Very impressed

By Chase-z65Sf

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I just bought mine recently and have been blown away with the tone. I went into guitar center not expecting to spend much money but after trying out the various combo amps they had, this one clearly sounded the best. I understand they are made in China so perhaps not all of them are made consistently at the same quality. I would highly recommend this amp to anyone wanting to do gigs who doesn't want to lug around a huge amp. It's been a huge step up from my acoustic b100.

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this used from a college-level professor who wanted to learn bass but never had the time. (he is a professional trumpet player/instructor.) Looked brand new when I got it. First few practices with my band, I'd have to crank the volume and master all the way just to compete with the drum kit; it eventually just started sputtering and cutting out mid practice. Found the pre-amp tube was testing bad, replaced it. The amp made it through one note the next practice; found a connection sheared off between the power supply and power amp boards. It made it through one and a half sets the next night before dying in the same manner. The tone is great, but the cabinet rattles and buzzes like all heck. This would be a fantastic practice/small gig amp if it could handle it's own vibes. But the build quality is awful, so stay away!

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

I got this Amp in november 2012 and I just had the opportunity to use it a few times. It started great but all of a sudden it broke down, in the middle of a performance it suddendly stopped working. I took it to a qualified repair shop and they told me that it was a complete mess inside since the power supply card was broken and the 8 output transistors were also broken. I bought this Amp restocked but for me it was a complete scam. No worth at all!! At the time of purchase it was clear that the Amp was not brand new but I thought that buying this from a reliable vendor could be enough guarantee that the Amp would work reasonably well or at least for some time... just the opposite! I feel betrayed... I will not buy from this vendor again...!

Don't make this mistake!

By Brad Nelson

from Springfield, Mo.

Comments about Ampeg BA300 / 210 2 x 10 Bass Combo Amp:

This is a very poorly built amp.They don't make them like they did in St. Louis anymore. I have owned this piece of crap for almost three months. The covering is coming off, the direct out doesn't work right. I had to retighten every screw in the amp when I got it. Don't buy it!
