    A Google search for "NAMM 2015 Ampeg" resulted in this today and I hope it can drive a power amp!

    Wow, headphones, aux in, DI, OD with blend. Almost looks like someone is finally paying attention... Kind of missing a pre/post switch but still interesting. Will be cool to hear a demo.

    do you reckon the Scrambler section could be used as a boost channel???

    pretty cool. the only thing is, is that I don't consider a Scrambler an 'overdrive' (or at least not a 'normal' OD). to me, they're more of a fuzz pedal.

    Yeah, I was wondering if they are just reusing the name for OD or if it will truly sound like those big old scrambler pedals. If it does sound like a classic Scrambler, you'd expect them to have put a gain knob on there or something to get some grit. Again, unless the "Scrambler" is now the ampeg dirt sound here.

    At first glance it looks like the pre amp on their new line of combos, Scrambler and all.

    It will be interesting to see how this stacks up against some of the excellent ampeggy pre amps out there.

    you're 100% correct. it's probably the same preamp as used in their new BA-115 combo, and from the sound of this demo, the scrambler in it doesn't sound like their previous scrambler pedal so it looks like this one will be a very nice sounding unit

    I think the aux in and headphone out by itself has me sold.

    Too big for my pedalboard.

    I'm also more and more reluctant to buy pedals with multiple functions (drive and eq/di in this case) as I seemingly always only like one of the included functions and thus have to pay for and use up space for something I'm not using. But if the combination works for you that can of course be a plus rather than a minus.

    I've been watching out for the new 450 watt BA210.

    This looks ridiculously awesome!

    Provided it can cab sim sensibly and none of the functions just happen to suck, of course.

    Interesting...looks like a cool pedal. The Scrambler circuit is definitely not the original Scrambler pedal...the original Scrambler stiffed in the marketplace twice so according to my AR guy, you won't be seeing it again made by Ampeg any time soon. But I have a BA112 v2 and the current Scrambler isn't bad at all for an add-on distortion to an amp. Didn't expect much out of it before I got the amp but it's pretty decent.
