    Pros - This is a great practice amp.
    Cons - No DI out. This is not a gig amp.
    I got this amp for $99 bucks so my son would not mess with my GK rig. I've since repurposed it as a practice tool. With the amp in front of you with the speaker pointed at your head, it does a very good job of giving you a great bass sound at low volume.

    Don't expect to use this in a band setting. In fact, I wouldn't use this with an acoustic guitarist, but for practicing without shaking the house (or apartment complex) this is a great tool. The headphone jack also allows for completely silent play, if you need to go that route.

    I wish Ampeg had included a DI out, because it would be interesting to use this as a monitor and then feed the DI to the board (yes, it sounds that good). That would be asking too much though, right?

    Clean Sound
    Cons - None
    Playing an Ibanez 405 with upgraded Bartolini MK5's and Bartolini Pre-amp. I prefer the sound best in Passive mode but the Bass sounds great in both Passive or Active modes.
    The knobs feel firm and the amp as a whole feels durable.
    The amp is extremely quiet and has an incredible clean sound.
    I don't play this amp above a 2 or 3, but believe it could handle higher volumes easily.

    Pros - It's an Ampeg. Light weight. Great tone. Love the slant-back design. Price!
    Cons - Needs a bit more headroom
    Not bad little amp. I use it for band rehearsal and it's pretty much maxed out. Great for home use.

    Really not a bad little amp for $99. I use it with my group for rehearsal but it's near it's limit. However, it's perfect for rehearsal at home.

    Just for clarification, the Ba 110 V2, which I have, does not have a DI out.

      I saw that as a possible issue. I just picked up an older BA-110 with the line in/out ports to run with a newer BA-108. Guitar Center had one for 99.00. 30 bucks to ship it though.
