    i was in a guitar shoptoday that sells mostly used gear. They got an ampeg ba 115 sp for $325 used. 15 inch speaker, 100 watts, and special effects: bass syth, wah, distortion, echo, and etc. Do u all think this is a good buy? any experiences with this amp? This will mostly be a practice amp for me being that it is my first amp. But i think this would be a good amp to jam with people.

    Not too shabby. A while ago I bought the plain one with no effects for about 350 or so. Not too bad for a practice amp. (There's a bit of complaint about it making hissing noise when no music is being played, but I didn't notice it that much)

    Was a nice amp. Good deal I'd say :)

    I had a very bad experience with the ba 115, bought one and it died literally in 3 minutes out of the box, replaced it and the next one was in the shop 3 times in one year. It's long gone now

    Heckuva deal for $150...jump on it. I used to have a BA-115 (no efx) and it did me reasonably well...I couldn't quite get the tone I wanted out of it (and wanted something more portable), so I sold it for something much smaller.

    Enjoy the amp!

    Just don't expect much from the onboard effects. I had the BA210SP very breifly. Though the amp was ok, the effects are garbage.
