    I have listened to all of the available combo amps in the +/- $500 price range. Maybe it is simply my longevity/age, but I really love the tone of the Ampeg combo amps - BA115 & BA210. I love the ability to go from the "ruffle your pant leg" bluesy round-sound to the hollow mid-range tone I need for early Beatles material.

    I am not, however, impressed with the quality of construction. Two of the amps I tried had defective push buttons that wouldn't stay-in (the on-position). What has been this groups' experience with quality control and customer support from Ampeg?

    Odd question. With the angled 60 degree tilt back, how do you transport these amps in the back of a car? I always believed that you never transport amps with controls faced down.

    Thanks.
