Ampeg has now officially beefed up the bottom end of its BassAmp Series with four new combo models – the BA300/115, BA300/210, BA600/115 and BA600/210 – each combining professional-grade power with extreme portability, durability, and tonal versatility.

Now shipping to dealers around the globe, the BA300/115 (single 15-inch driver) and BA300/210 (dual 10-inch drivers) bass combos both crank out a staggering 300 watts of pure Ampeg tone from an enclosure barely larger than four cubic feet. Solid low-end is delivered by Eminence ceramic magnet speakers, while top-end is supplied by a HF horn with level control for customizing the sound.

The BA300’s 12AX7 tube preamp, five-position mid-tone “style” control, three-band EQ, and ultra-high/low switches provide supreme sonic flexibility in a rugged, lightweight enclosure. A variable compressor with peak LED, pre/post XLR tube DI with level control, and Class D power section and universal switching power supply – to keep the weight factor low without sacrificing power output or sound quality – are also offered. Mute and master controls, separate 0dB and -12dB inputs, an effects loop, and removable casters further round out the compact-yet-powerful package.

Ideal for the semi-pro to professional player seeking ultra-transportable, SVT-level output, the Ampeg BA300/115 and BA300/210 carry a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $979.99 ($699.99 MAP) and $1,119.99 ($799.99 MAP), respectively.

Like aggressive little pit bulls on steroids, the BA600/115 and BA600/210 offer nearly all of the same features as their BA300 siblings with the added benefit of twice the power – a massive 600 watts crammed into super-portable, sub-55-pound packages! Custom-designed, proprietary neodymium speakers maximize power handling and performance while minimizing weight. The BA600 also features dual 12AX7 tube preamps and individual equalization controls for two separate channels: modern and vintage (for classic B15 tone). Channel switching and mute can both be conveniently activated via a footswitch as well as on the amplifier’s control panel.

Perfect for players wanting both the best in modern and vintage sounds, extremely high-powered performance, and hernia-free portability, the Ampeg BA600/115 and BA600/210 carry a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,399.99 ($999.99 MAP) and $1,539.99 ($1,099.99 MAP), respectively.

“Our new BassAmp Series combos once again prove that Ampeg is the bass amp for professionals,” says Ampeg Product Manager Zane Williams. “LOUD’s engineering prowess involving lightweight, Class D power allows us to offer the vintage Ampeg ‘Round Sound’, plus a more transparent, modern Ampeg sound, in a very powerful and lightweight combo. These four new models represent the utilization of meaningful technology without losing sight of the expectations held by our loyal customers.”
