The Ampeg Rocket Bass 112 is a 100-watt combo amp perfect for practice or playing small venues. Weighing 25.9 lb., it has enough mass for thick bass lines, but it's not so heavy that you can't pop it in the band van. This versatile combo has overdrive and a 3-band EQ to shape your sound. Read on to find out if the Rocket 112 is a bass amp that fits your bill.
Power and Performance
The 112 features 100 watts of solid-state power, making it ideal for small clubs. The Rocket Bass sports an efficient 12" Custom Eminence Speaker speaker; porting in the back of the amp provides an extended bass response for a deeper tone.
Shape Your Sound
The RB-112 includes Ampeg's signature 3-band EQ, allowing you to tweak your bass, mid-range and treble with precision. The Super Grit Overdrive produces warm overtones when you play quietly, and more aggressive distortion as you increase the gain. Thanks to the top-mounted controls, it's also simple to change settings on the fly.
The Ins and Outs
An XLR out makes it easy to plug in to a soundboard. If you want to play along with your favorite band, plug any audio source into the auxiliary input. A headphone out gives you the freedom to practice anytime without disturbing those who might not dig your rock ’n’ roll lifestyle.
The Rocket Bass 112 has classic Ampeg style and sound
You can't write about music history without mentioning Ampeg. From the Portaflex—its first bass combo in 1960—to today's Rocket Bass, more players are falling for the Ampeg sound. If you've been looking for a bass combo that's gig-ready, the 112 might just check all of your boxes.
