Ampeg’s new Rocket Bass Series is a selection of combo style amps, available in a range of speaker configurations and wattages. The series has amps for players of all levels, from beginners all the way through to seasons pros.

Ampeg Rocket Bass Series

The new Rocket Bass Series from Ampeg starts with the 30-watt RB-108 and goes up to the top of the range  500-watt RB-210 model.

“Simply put, we wanted to design the ultimate bass combos, sacrificing nothing in terms of tone or aesthetics. Most important, Rocket Bass is designed for the practical player that doesn’t want to give up stage-ready looks, roadworthy construction, and killer tone just because they prefer the practicality of a combo amp.”

– Dino Monoxelos, Ampeg Brand Marketing Manager.

    Ampeg Rockets have traditionally been great sounding combo amps. I hope the “Super Grit” drive sounds as good as their older Bass Scrambler overdrive. I look forward to hearng these.
