    It's a transistor amp while an output of 100 watts with a 15-inch HP. It has two instrument inputs (one normal and one least 15dB) between a CD, a headphone output and an XLR lineout in order to attack a mixer. Rglages are the volume, master, treble, mid, bass and provides a slecteur 5 prrglages of qualisation.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is ultra-simple, plug and ring. No manual but is available on the ampeg site and useful to know the prrglages knob allowed by the style.

    SOUNDS

    I play it with a music man sterling 4-string, the sound should particulirement what I play blues, rock, jazz-rock. The knob style can change its very easy. Style 2 provides a dig in mdiums IDAL for blues and jazz rock, the bass is sounding and trs Submitted and treble are clear but not as pretty colors and at all aggressive. 4 provides a style that suits her best to rock as well mdium load the game mdiator is a marvel and you out of the mix even though saturated with 2 guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year in a group with two guitarists, a drummer and a singer. Despite its 100-watt power dlivre is sufficient. What is most enjoyable is that the sound you get DSIR is very easy thanks to the style and knob rglages trs simple. I have hp prfr 10 or 12 inches to have a little more serious and more prcis attack for slap and a little more power while the same for sc no. I tried also a 100 watt SWR trs cool-sounding, the Ampeg BA 210 Strange to sounding less I think, a Hughes and Kettner QC 412 ts that sounds good with good power and trs reasonable price but is less versatile with settings of qual inefficient and also the latest edition of the fender bassman 200 and w 2 * 10 trs that sounded good but that I MODEL 'I tried mett grsillements of the attack on low notes.
    I think the price is justified for the quality of sound that is found in no other manufacturer I do it again and does the same choice to change for another Ampeg (b2re pregnant + 4 * 10)

    SOUNDS

    Style of music ... I diffrent stylish ... my personal 'em is a little feeble on things a little punk ...

    What kind of sound?
    was a sound of a great depth, trs rich and allows to feel really comfortable on all styles. I would say that it is mainly thanks really powerful bass and HP 15 '

    Rglage level, I love playing on the style for rock n 4 and 2-3 for the rest
    Styles 1 and 5, I use less

    FYI, the style of 1 5 are the highest compression the less.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one month,

    The particular feature I like most is his inimitable deep,

    For me, what I drang is just missing a little power. I was thinking that it is better to put more money and buy the ampeg 220W ... I was thinking too, that play better on it with a low active and passive
    PS: just lower the price trsrcement in the BA range, the BA115 classic (mine), we can find nine under 500! but otherwise, they released the same reinforced a mini lamp that gives a lot of punch BA115. (It costs around 500-600)
    But my recommendation is to target the 200 watts in the same ampeg SERIES is really excellent, not too expensive, and ... 200watts is comfortable. (Of both the 100 watts is a bit limited)

    UTILIZATION

    The config is not on-plus-may-simple, we transplanted one plays and that's all good!!
    get a good sound with this amp is easy, (it depends also on the power to which we play and local)
    In all, some necessary adjustments, real plug and play!

    SOUNDS

    For style rock, pop / rock, this amp should.
    The BA115 is geared for repeat and small clubs, not the stage or outdoors (for playing an svt-classic and a 8X10, there is obviously no comparison!) Transplanted it, it is difficult to obtain on a scene its a "no fat"
    Apart from the equalizer, his second failure is the breath of the tweeter which is a real horror
    I play with a fender p-bass US s1, the sound is far below compared to a 300w Ashdown 4X10, the bowl 15 "does not hold water when compared in terms of clarity
    the "styles" of equalization are inaudible due to wind generated tweeter

    OVERALL OPINION

    I own this amp for 4 years now
    The pros: ease of setting, the ergonomics, power, size, sound ampeg
    the -: equalizer, a single bowl 15 ", the DI, the tweeter
    before, I played on a marshall 200w so there is no comparison
    at the time I had bought the lille for 800euros, which is expensive compared to what is now
    with experience, I would not have taken n this model, but a model with two bowl 12 "
    and if I had of buying another amp, it would have the Ashdown 300W

    Great amp for apartment

    Ampeg BA-115Published on 01/10/09 at 09:40
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    100 watts transistor with an HP 15-inch tweeter and a piezo.
    Fairly standard settings with 5 presets boxes accessible from a dial.
    <strong>Theory:</strong> The amp has inputs CD / aids that are practical for work at home (CAR).
    <strong>True Life:</strong> uh .. they are so noisy that these entries unusable in practice

    I do not use effects pedal but for those who are in this case, it probably lacks an effects loop.

    To go out on a console there is a XLR DI, (but probably only if it is to play in a group B100R is probably more appropriate is the ambiguity of the BA115, it can probably be used by a real musician, but above all an amp homework luxury)

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is it simple?
    ==================================
    - Configuration is as simple
    - The right sound is direct (though the variations are rather moderate, but rather a sound jazz, blues rock, a little fat)
    - The manual is brief but in any case unnecessary

    The auxiliary inputs can be highly practical (I use my Mac to connect the amp to play accompaniments), but over-blowing, too bad to repeat some complicated but a little unrealistic in regular use.

    SOUNDS

    What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat")?
    ================================================== ==============================

    I'm not an expert, but its very classic / vintage I like.
    Its uniqueness is not only to have a good sound, warm, deep etc. .. but to have low volume (volume of apartment).
    Full of amps are capable of giving a good sound, but most are zero at low volumes. The BA115 is top for that.

    With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    ================================================== ============
    - A Squier Vintage Modified JB
    - Fender Jazz Bass Active (MIM)

    Note, even if use is a bit strange, I also used a MicroPiano expander connected to a MIDI keyboard, and it works very well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A further opinion beginner.
    I hear the bass, I was looking for an amp that:
    - Allow to have a good sound at a relatively low volume (apartment)
    - Allow to have enough power to play from time to time with friends
    - No vale Cheap
    - Has a super mouth
    - Has auxiliary inputs (for connecting to various tips, drum machine, Macintosh etc. ..)

    The BA115 has all these qualities, I had less than 300 euros delivered to DV247, the sound is the hair, even at low volume (ok, the entries are rotten to ...).

    The shot of the tweeter that whistles I read everywhere is largely exaggerated. It is true that this tweeter whistles, but just down the treble within 5 to make it go away without the sound it is dramatically affected. At worst simply unplug it.

    Its only defect is relatively large (15 inch force) and weighs a dead donkey (30 kgs)

    I feel that the criticisms that are made to this amp is relatively unfair. The BA115 is clearly a personal amplifier designed primarily to play at home and / or small group (the auxiliary jacks are the best example). For specialists there is plenty to do in the Ampeg line.

    Usually people that are intended for beginner amps (me) end up with low-end devices with a toy look .. and certainly a lower label of a hundred euros. Especially we normally choose between the power that would play with friends on occasion, or no power to prevent the neighbors fired without warning.

    The BA115 a more exciting alternative that works well, which qualitatively has little to do (which has power when needed but works extremely well at low volume), which is built like a tank and has a mouth of hell.

    The only limit is that it takes a little space (it is a matching stool practical enough to play).

    In short I would do without hesitation that choice (or perhaps the day the question arises of the choice, would I become a rock star in which case I will opt for a larger / powerful)

    Despite my active bass, I had to put me on the first entry (open to passive) as the difference in power delivered is important.

    SOUNDS

    THE sound Ampeg: versatility ensured without changing settings from rock to slap!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Quality workmanship that does not inspire serenity.
    Power too just to play with a drummer who hits and two guitarists.
    Its incredible, haunting, you get up at night to plug it in!
    BUT I change cons BA 115 HP, a little more expensive (just by watching the promos) but 2 times more powerful ... then we can play together without having to put it up!

    Excellent value for money

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    In truth this is my second BA115. I bought one in June 2008 and had sold in September 2009 to buy bigger. Finally I came back to BA115 for lots of reasons (starting with the one I did with the desirability of big amps).

    I will not dwell on the features of this amp, as is well known: while transistors, 100W RMS.

    Power is provided HUGE understand how we adjust the volume on an Ampeg (see below).

    In terms of regrets: DI is not a real ID and whose output level is directly linked to the master volume of the amp, the handle on top (side handles would have been preferable), auxiliary input RCA stereo is not used much (and whose volume can not be controlled).

    Overall, no complaints at this …

    I will not dwell on the features of this amp, as is well known: while transistors, 100W RMS.

    Power is provided HUGE understand how we adjust the volume on an Ampeg (see below).

    In terms of regrets: DI is not a real ID and whose output level is directly linked to the master volume of the amp, the handle on top (side handles would have been preferable), auxiliary input RCA stereo is not used much (and whose volume can not be controlled).

    Overall, no complaints at this rate, the receiver offers features very correct.

    UTILIZATION

    Many people complain of "lack of volume" of this amp. So that is what must be understood with the amplifier transistor from Ampeg.

    The BA115 you have a potentiometer "volume" (which corresponds to "gain" in fact) and a potentiometer "master" (which is ... "master" !!!). We must put first, the master rather slowly (no more than 1 / 4 volume) and then turn the volume gradually until a (possible) undesirable saturation begins to be heard. Therefore, we descend a little volume to remain below the threshold of saturation.

    NB. This assumes, of course to adjust the levels by typing like crazy, slap big, big attack with a pick, etc.).

    Then you set the master volume at will, with the "master".

    Warning: Use of the EQ affects the volume, thus making this manip preferably after having found that his research.

    Under these conditions, we get a LOT of power (relatively speaking of course, but I have no problem making myself understood in the midst of noisy mesaboogiesques 2 guitarists and a drummer lumberjack).

    Also avoid the serious push, it creates confusion in the sound, and contrary to popular belief it prevents good "cross". Better to boost midrange.

    I also often heard a "whistling tweeter. Even putting on treble fact I have never had this problem either with my first BA115 or with the new (and yet the two are made in China). Perhaps this problem has been solved?

    SOUNDS

    I use it in neutral mode: switch in position 3, and EQ all flat. I "shoot" with the Tech 21 Sansamp VT Bass, result: without the pressure of a large primary dealers, I have at least the grain. Brilliant!

    I play a Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass 5-string. Whatever I ask him, he does, always of course with this natural tendency to fullness of sound (requires Ampeg).

    OVERALL OPINION

    At this price there is little choice anyway. A 300W Behringer? No thank you. If it all over again, I would do the same choice. No hesitation.

    Unable to put 10 to an amp in this category, however. We stay away from the amp "ultimate" or "ultimate" of course.
