Ampeg Revamped BA Series Bass Combo Amps

Ampeg’s iconic BA series of bass combos is getting a facelift this year, the company announced for Musikmesse 2014. The lineup has been completely re-envisioned with new versions for the BA-108, BA-110, BA-112, BA-115 and BA-210 models.

Each of the models now has front-facing controls and a true sixty degree monitoring angle so they can be set up as a wedge. Another big new feature is the addition of the Bass Scrambler overdrive circuit, which is available on the BA-110 and larger models. Ampeg says the circuit delivers a “classic tube-like grind” and can be tweaked with separate drive and blend controls. It can be switched on and off and is foot-swichable on the BA-112 and larger models.

Other common features to the series include a 3-Band EQ, a 1/8” aux input, and a 1/8” stereo output. The BA-112 and BA-115 step things up to include the company’s Ultra Hi and Ultra Low switches. Rated at 450 watts, the BA-210 is the largest of the series and adds a -15dB input pad, an extension speaker output, and a dedicated XLR balanced line out.

Ampeg’s newly designed BA Bass Combo series will start shipping this Summer with MSRPs ranging from $139.99 to $699.99.
