IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND PRECAUTIONS:
All Ampeg products are designed for continuous safe operation, as long as common sense
is used and steps are taken to help avoid certain problems. Abiding by the following rules
can help prevent damage to your amplifier, yourself and others.
• The amplifier is equipped with a three-pronged AC power cord. To reduce the risk of
electrical shock, NEVER remove or otherwise attempt to defeat the ground pin of the
power cord.
• Connect the amplifier ONLY to a properly grounded AC outlet of the proper voltage
for your amp.
• Avoid sudden temperature extremes, rain and moisture. Also, avoid sudden and
intense impact. (If the unit has been subjected to any of the preceding abuses, have
it looked at by an authorized service center.)
• NEVER set the amplifier on a support that might give out under its weight.
• Always keep the total speaker impedance at or above the rated load.
• Unplug the amplifier before cleaning it. NEVER spray liquid cleaners onto the amplifier. Wipe it with a slightly dampened, lint-free cloth to remove dirt and film.
• Do not use the amplifier if it has sustained damage to the chassis, controls, or power
cord. Refer the unit to an authorized service center for inspection.
• Amplifiers capable of producing high volume levels are also capable of inflicting permanent hearing loss or damage, if the exposure to such levels is prolonged. Such
damage is progressive and irreversible!

1. 0dB INPUT: Connect your “passive”
bass guitar here using a shielded instrument cable. This input is not padded and
is best suited for basses without active
electronics.
2. -15dB INPUT: Connect your “active”
bass here using a shielded instrument
cable. This input is padded 15dB and is
best suited for basses with active electronics and/or “hot” pickups.
3. GAIN: Use this control in conjunction
with your instrument’s volume controls to
adjust the level of the signal sent to the
preamp.
4. STYLE: This five-position switch is
used to control the tone of the amplifier.
Experiment with the Style and other eq
controls (#5,6,7) for the results which suit
you best. The settings of the style control
are as follows:
4
5
6
7
8
5. LOW: This control is used in conjunction with the style control to adjust the low
frequency level of the amplifier.
6. MID: This control is used in conjunction
with the style control to adjust the
midrange level of the amplifier.
7. HIGH: This control is used in conjunction with the style control to adjust the
high frequency level of the amplifier.
8. MASTER: Use this control to adjust the
level of the output signal from the amplifier. This control also adjusts the signal
level of the CD Inputs (#10), the
Headphones jack (#12) and the Line Out
jack (#13).
9. MUTE: This switch, when depressed,
mutes the output signal, the Line Out signal, and the Headphones signal. This
allows silent tuning and switching of
instruments while the amplifier is still on.
The CD inputs remain active when the
Mute switch is depressed.

10. CD INPUT: Use these RCA jacks to
connect the line level (or headphones) output of a CD player, tape deck or rhythm
machine to the amplifier. The inputs to
these jacks are summed into a mono signal
which is fed into the BA115HP/BA210’s
power amplifier. The signal level from these
jacks is adjusted by the amplifier’s Master
control (#8). If the signal from the source
connected to these jacks is too strong, use
the output level control on the source to
adjust the signal to obtain the proper level
for a good mix.
11. TUNER: Use this electronic tuner to
tune your instrument. A complete description of the tuner is located on page 6.
12. HEADPHONES: Use this jack to listen
to the amplifier through a pair of stereo
headphones. The internal speaker is disconnected when the headphones jack is
used.

13. BAL. LINE OUT: This jack supplies a
post-eq, balanced line level signal for connecting to a house sound board, recording
unit or external amplifier.
14. POWER: Use this switch to turn the
amplifier on or off. The adjacent LED will
illuminate when the amplifier is turned on.
15. AC LINE CORD: (rear panel, not
shown) This grounded power cord is to be
plugged into a grounded power outlet,
wired to current electric codes and compatible with voltage, power, and frequency
requirements stated on the rear panel. Do
not attempt to defeat the safety ground
connection.
16. HF LEVEL CONTROL: (cabinet back,
not shown): Use this control to adjust the
output level of the high frequency driver. With
the control fully counter clockwise, there is no
output from the high frequency driver. The
high frequency driver output increases as
you rotate the control clockwise.

THE ELECRONIC TUNER:
The BA115HP/BA210 incorporate an active electronic tuner, built into the control panel.
The electronic tuner is active whenever the amplifier is turned on, providing constant,
“real-time” tuning. The bottom row of LEDs indicate which note (string) is being tuned.
The top row of LEDs provides directional queues to facilitate quick and precise tuning
of your instrument. The indicated note (string) is properly tuned when only the center
LED is illuminated
