    Hi guys,
    I've been offered a secondhand ampeg b200r Chinese model.
    I was thinking if buying a new ampeg ba 115 next week as ideal for practice and small gigs plus a warranty.
    What would ye guys go for thanks :)

    I would take the ba115 out of those two.

    The B200R receives low marks on reliability and reviews. I went with the B100R (owned 2) and it gets very good reviews and sounds awesome with high customer satisfaction. There is a lot of information here on these amps. I've played the BA115 and it's a nice amp. Keep in mind that all these are on the heavy side for lower wattage combos. I also have a BA108 which is a fantastic practice amp. So I would rate the B100R first, then the BA115...and personally wouldn't consider the B200R.....but that's just me!

    I would take the BA only because it is new, the BA line has a high failure rate and Ampeg warranty only applies to whoever actually bought the product.
