I LOVE this amp! I've had it for 3 years now. I pair it with a 15 cab when I want it tall enough to set a beer on it. This thing rules the world. Sounds great on its own and sounds great with effects. If you're strong enough to heft this thing around, you will not be disappointed. Has been completely reliable. I even let it roll off 2 stairs (was on casters & I turned to open the door coming home from a gig) and it didn't miss a beat. Takes a whumpin' and keeps on thumpin'...

Disappointing Amp, Save Your Money!!!

I just got this amp in December and did not even start using it until March and it is already broken. The sound is coming out distorted like it has a ripped speaker cone and the trim's rivets must have vibrated off because the trim just fell off. Now, I have to spend hundreds of dollars more just to ship it to Georgia to get an Ampeg-approved service center to fix it and somehow find a box large enough to fit it in because the dealership I bought it from took the box. I've only used it for practice maybe 10 times so far and haven't even used it to it's full capacity. It's heartbreaking to have spent as much money as I did in purchasing an amp from a reputable company only to be disappointed by the product and the company's lack of compassion in helping me fix these issues.

BA 500 Awsome Amp

By VG Bass

from Indiana

This amp is pretty awsome. The sound quality of it is true ampeg (sounds good no matter what you have it dialed to.) I love the kickback feature. That makes it very easy to hear. The volume is loud enough to do any room if you are using it in conjunction with a PA. The only thing I don't like about the amp is that when you mute it, it doesn't mute the balanced out line to the PA. This doesn't allow you to mute and tune because the sound is still coming out the mains. If you buy this amp you might also get an A/B switch to mute. I have used an SVT III Pro for the past eight years and I like this amp just as much, It sounds awsome.

Rock solid and versatile

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Great amp although heavy. Loud enough for most jobs. Just add a 15" speaker for bigger jobs. Mute button should mute the DI out, that would make it perfect. I added an SVT 15 E for big power and sound and it can the carry any gig. Still better than hauling an 810 around

This is so far the best combo, I play alot with my band. Sometimes my drummer tells me to turn it down. We are on the road alot. Taking it out and in of my SUV. Very light to what other 500 watt amps are.

The Best Combo Ever

By Bassguy-mw8L0

from Minnesota

I have played on tons of combo amps and to this day there is not an amp out there that even comes close to the tone and power that the BA-500 has to offer. It just does not get any better than this and I have found the tone that every bass player is searching for.

Fantastic Amp

By Ampegmaster999

An awesome amp for the serious bass player. A good buy if you want a dependable amp that won't let you down. Ampeg Rocks Thank You so Much. I use a Fender Jazz bass and it sounds amazing. Good amp if your in a loud band and play gigs or if you just love to rock out in your garage.

Just a total BEAST

By OneDrop-ukLJZ

from Quiversburg, VA

Was looking for a new (give or take) bass rig in a music store and had tried out lots of half stacks and combos when I noticed this one tucked away behind some other equipment. I plugged in, switched on the EQ, pulled the trebles down, boosted the lows almost all the way up, and played a low E at about 1/2 of the max volume....The entire store fell silent and my entire nervous system was severely disturbed. Incredibly fat and powerful tone with nice punchy highs as well. This amp shook the floor better than anything else I played that day. I am definitely looking into purchasing it. The combo alone only pumps out 350W so I can't even imagine what the total 500 would do.
