  4. I know it's not the same amp, but I have an older BA110, and while the tone is nice, I find it woefully underpowered to do anything more than be used as a practice amp. I've heard similiar things about the 115.

    I wouldnt buy another one. I bought one maybe 4 and a half years ago. I thought it would be a great first ampeg. I was really wrong. It hisses really loud It sounds really boomy. I would recomend you look into ashdown they are way better. I bought an ashdown mag300 and 4x10 cab and the ba115 sat for 2 years. Just recently someone messed with the ashdown head they put a paperclip in it and then it started smoking. I think it was the guitarist in my old band he was complaining that I was too loud that day. I went back to the ampeg ba115 and hate it. The speaker in the ba115 just blew out too and I never cranked it up so I cant figure out why It would blow.

    I got a great deal on one, figured I could flip it for what I paid for it if I didn't like it. Luckily I was right, I couldn't get a decent tone out of it and flipped it within a week.
  11. I was always happy with mine for all the time I owned it. The hiss was never a problem for me.

    There is always better out there, but for what I could afford, I was more than happy with the purchase. If you do not gig, jam or play outside of your room, then I think it is not a bad purchase... Of course that is just my op, and of course I cannot speak about the new models that people apparently have issues with....
