Well I have arranged to purchase an Ampeg BA115 for 250 usd. Far cheaper than buying it at Guitar Center, after tax and all that good warranty stuff. I want to make this a quick deal, and I have elected to go to the sellers house. Thing is, I want to make sure this Amp isnt a piece of ****, so, bass forum, tell me how to fully test drive this amp in 5-10 minutes, and how to fully check the amp. Much thanks.

If I had more money, I don't think I would buy this amp. Much less a combo amp.

Yeah, just bring your bass and any other gear you have to use with it and test every possible sound you would ever use.

^very helpful.

To be more precise, the lower end Ampegs lack the tonal punch and loudness of their more expensive brothers. I'm an Ampeg freak and I'm not exactly enthralled with their lower end offerings.

Frankly, I don't think 10 minutes is a decent amount of time to run an amp through its paces. I tend to play amps flat at first and then run them through various settings. If you have pedals, bring one or two with you. Check out the tonal lows and highs. I once played a used Hartke that sounded great in the higher range, but literally farted in the lower range.

I knew I would have to wait for a mod before I could get a decent answer. Thanks

Well anyways, Let me put it this way:
Is the 100 watt 1x15 ampeg better than
a '90's squier 1x12 45 watt practice amp?
Good improvement
