Ampeg bass amps have carved out a legacy unsurpassed in the industry, with the all-tube SVT® long established as the must-have rig for ultimate big-stage tone and the B-15 Portaflex® enjoying the same reputation among top-tier recording engineers – and these new Rocket Bass combos extend that tradition, delivering unparalleled performance, stunning ’60s-style looks, and robust feature sets in lightweight and portable packages.

Available in a broad variety of configurations, Rocket Bass amps range from the surprisingly potent 30-watt RB-108 to the concert-ready 500-watt RB-210. 

And just like their famed larger siblings, Rocket Bass combos offer essential Ampeg features such as 3-band EQ, signature Ultra Hi/Ultra Lo switches (RB-112 and up), and the new Super Grit TechnologyTM overdrive circuit, all of which combine to produce legendary Ampeg tone. 

Plus, XLR line outputs (except RB-108), auxiliary inputs, and headphone outputs ensure that Rocket Bass combos are ready to rock in any situation.
