Ampeg Shootout !

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Mr.QuakQuak, Jul 21, 2003.

  1. OK I want a good clean fight.

    I want to hear TBers opinions on these two combo amps that I narrowed it down too. I will be playing all types of music but mostly rock and jazzy tunes. This will be for jamming with friends and practice. Begin !

    Ampeg BA115
    Ampeg B100R
  2. I tried all the "B series" and the "Rocketbass" models. I liked the Rocketbass models the most for two basic reasons: Knobs (assortment & layout) and their abilty to continue sounding good at full volume.

    In the end I got the B50R cause it was plenty loud for its intended purpose and it's more portable.
  3. The B50R sounds nice, and it's certainly portable, but the 100 is far more flexible with a _lot_ more low end.
    I've had mine for a year and I love it--though I've subjected it to no hard use. The other model mentioned looks like junk.
