I was looking for a small, compact, good sounding amp.

I was looking for a small, portable, bass practice amp. The Ampeg BA-108 was the best one I found for my needs. Compared to the others I tried, this was the best in class. First of all, it has both active and passive bass guitar inputs. The amp sounds great, and you can tweak your tone with the bass/mid/treble knobs to get your exact sound. In addition to the RCA inputs for an aux audio source, you also have a volume control knob on the amp itself for that aux source. Great idea, especially if your aux source does not have a volume control. At 25 watts, there is more than enough power for practice. If you decide to take the amp to an open mic night/jam session, you could take the 1/4" output on the back of the amp to the house PA for additional sound support. Great idea, Ampeg. Another great feature, especially for an amp of this size, is that it also has a tilt back design for upright or tilt back monitoring. The amp looks great, solid built, and even has metal corner protectors. Of course, one of the main features I bought this amp was for the headphone output. My practice time on bass guitar nearly doubled after I got this amp. I can now practice late at night and don't have to worry about waking anybody (the wife) up. Happy wife, happy life.

Update 2/19/14: As pointed out by another poster, the Ampeg BA-108 no longer comes with a tilt back design. I got one of the early production models (pre-ordered) and they did indeed have the tilt back design when first offered. The tilt back design was too unstable, I guess, so Ampeg went back to the standard upright design only. The BA-108 has been a great practice amp for me, and I stand by my other comments in the review, with the caveat that 2011 was a long time ago and I don't what is available currently. My BA-108 is as good as the day I got it.

I was looking for a small, compact, good sounding amp. This little guy really delivers. I play a 15" SWR combo at my church regularly, but needed a small combo for practice at home and in-home jamming with friends. Although I was very skeptical of the sub-$100 price tag, I am pleasantly surprised by its performance. This little dude is loud, especially for an 8" combo. The CD input is a must-have for at-home jam alongs. I'm very pleased with this purchase. The best $100 I ever spent...

I owned this amp for one year and replaced it with a Fender Rumble. Here's the thing, it sounds like an Ampeg should, but after a while the speaker mounts loosen up and cause a horrific buzz. I removed the grill (just Velcro tabs holding it on) and investigated. The board that the speaker( and the whole cab) is made of is composition board and is quite shoddily constructed. I know it's a $99 amp, but still... The nuts that the speaker screws attach to have little spikes on the back and are just driven into the wood. When these loosen there is no way of tightening them. I suppose you could use some 5 minute epoxy, but you know it's not my job to re-engineer Ampeg's faults. Before I realized the problem I tried putting rubber washers beneath the screw heads which did isolate the buzz somewhat. Ultimately I decided to sell it for cheap and bought a Fender Rumble 15w 8"speaker which I like very, very, much. Smaller, lighter, and plenty of punch for home practice and hobby recording. I wouldn't recommend this amp as I think the Fender line is a bit more rugged, I own four other Fender amps...no problems.

Having sold my Ampeg 8-10 cabinet a few years ago when I realized I was never playing that much anymore, I was without an amp when I decided to pick up the bass again and noodle around a bit. I definitely didn't need anything large or too powerful to just play a bit in my house, so I was looking for CHEAP first and everything else second. I always liked my Ampeg cabinet so when I saw this little amp I thought it would do nicely.

Well, "nicely" doesn't even begin to cover it! This little baby packs a powerful punch! It is louder than I need or expected... in fact I could see playing a small gig or jam session very easily with this little practice amp. And it has a really great tone to it as well. I haven't tried hooking an ipod up to it yet to play along with anything, but I definitely appreciate that as an option. And also the inclusion of a headphones output makes this the right choice for a practice amp or home amp. I love it!

I bought this little guy for practice and for church services, and it fits the bill. It has enough power to fill a large room with sound. My favorite feature is the signal out jack in the back of the amp so that you can plug into a bigger sound system to give support to the amp. At church, I can use the jack in the back to plug into the sound system, and use the amp itself as a monitor. In my brief research, it was the only amp at this price point to have such a feature.

Pros:
- Great clean bass sound: great range from low to high; has that punch that a good bass sound needs.
- Signal out jack that doesn't shut down sound from amp itself
- Headphone jack that DOES shut down sound from amp, so you won't bother neighbors
- Portable, with metal corner protectors
- Affordable - below 100 bucks

Cons:
- Power cord detaches completely - nowhere to wrap it on back of amp. Thus the cord has to travel separate from amp.
