Hi - I am brand new and would love some advice on my impending purchase of an Ampeg Combo amp. I mostly need an amp for home practice and jamming at friends' apartments so I don't really need something that loud, but I would like to have the option of something I could use in a club etc. in case I start doing that again (I do own a Peavey Combo 300 that I bought in 1987 and that has always been loud enough for anything I needed to do - either I played small places or went direct. That amp is too big to use for practice and I prefer the Ampeg sound anyway). I checked out the Ampeg BA 115 in the store and thought it rocked. I have a Stingray that I was thinking of selling for a Fender, but this amp made me love my bass again, it really smoothed out the Ray's harsh edges while preserving its signature sound. I would be psyched to buy this amp but now I am thinking about maybe buying the BA 210 in case I want to have something louder. Here are my questions: 1. My assumption is that the 210 with 220 watts should be louder than the 100 watt BA 115. But all the reviews for the BA 115 talk about how super loud it is, how it's good for clubs etc. whereas many of the 210 reviews complain about how soft it is. Does anyone know what's up with that? Are these just different kinds of people with different standards or is there something weird going on? 2. Also, will 210 be too loud for practicing at home, or can this amp perform well at low levels? 3. There's is also a BA 115HP which is the same wattage as the 210, but with a single 15" speaker rather than two 10". Can advice on what the difference between the two and perhaps, more generally, the pros/cons of 15" v. 10". Any help would be really appreciated!
