Ampeg Introduces New BassAmp Combos

Ampeg rolls out four new combos in its BassAmp Series.

Woodinville, Washington (May 29, 2008) -- 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.

"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."

BA300/212 and BA600/212

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

115 MSRP $979.99 ($699.99 MAP)
210 MSRP $1119.99 ($799.99 MAP)

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.
