As a DB player it is difficult to find a combo that sounds right being that most all combos are designed for EB. So, I have settled on this combo. I have played two new BA115s in two different stores. Both of them did not get the volume that the BA 112 did. To put it in perspective - I cranked up both the volume and gain to full on the 115s and still needed more volume. They had no distortion that you would normally get with a cranked gain. The 112 had a normal gain structure in which you could not crank both volume and gain as it would distort. Question...Are both of these 115s defective? I gave up trying to get useful info from the dealer.
