Hi and Welcome to the Ampeg Ideascale Webpage

This is a place where YOU, the Ampeg fan get to suggest and vote on how we might be able to improve on our existing products…..

Or, suggest some new ideas that we may never have even thought of yet. This is YOUR hangout!!

It’s also super easy to use!

Simply register by setting up an account using an email and password. Once you do that you can scroll through the home page and view any one of the more popular topics there and then either click the up arrow to agree, or the down arrow to disagree with the topic. That’s how easy it is to vote on something.

If you’re looking for something specific, you can click any one of the “campaigns” on the right of the page and this will take you to its respective category where you can once again vote yay or nay on any one of the ideas.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to create your own idea by clicking on “Submit New Idea” in the blue box and following the prompts there as well. From there, anyone else can vote to agree or disagree on your new idea.

Pretty simple, right?

The only thing we ask in return is keep it informative, keep it respectful of other people’s ideas and comments, but most importantly, keep it fun!

We totally look forward to seeing everyone’s comments and suggestions.

Play More Bass!!!

Tube Version of the Micro CL and Micro VR Heads

Make a Tube Version of the Micro CL and VRs to pump out about the same power as they do now. Maybe not a full power tube section but a preamp tube similar to those micro heads from Orange and Vox and Peavey. If they could work with the existing micro cabinets that would be great, especially for recording situations or small clubs.

SWAG!

We definitely need new swag! Tee, Camp/Bowling Shirt, Tank Top, Polo, Hoodie, Cap, Cup, Thermal Mug, Lanyard, Stickies, Backpack, Phone covers, etc. Need at least a couple of additional colors other than Black and White too. My tees and hoodie are nearly exhausted.

Build a B-15 Preamp/DI

I'd really like an all-tube B-15 preamp and DI for the studio. Other manufacturers make such things, but I think Ampeg could do it better. I'd like to see octal preamp tubes, a high-quality transformer (Cinemag or equivalent), made in the USA.

Pro Series Amps and Cabs

Ultra Lightweight Cabinets

Ok. Its time for Ampeg to come out with something comparable to the Mesa line...ultra light for us older farts out there.....while the Portoflex is close, I'd love to see a line that rivals the lightness of Mesa or the Fender Rumble....either combos or cabs.

Ampeg website in need of updating

As an Ampeg guy since the 1960's, i have a few suggestions. My first one is, bring the website up to date ! While i love the 60's, an up to date website would show that Ampeg is serious about being top dog in the world of bottom !

Reissue classic Ampeg basses! Baby, Scroll, Devil, etc.

Given the recent purchase of Ampeg by Yamaha, why not take advantage of that half-century of guitar-making experience and bring these classic instruments back to life!
NS designs has shown that the upright bass can be seen in pop music stages. Perhaps an all -wood design Baby, such as those made by Steve Azola (No longer made), could make the Baby appealing to ALL musicians, not just 'Salseros'! ;)

Reissue the B-15 without the Heritage price tag

I'd really like to have a B-15 at a lower price point than the heritage series but at a higher quality than the PF-20T and PF-50T... maybe parallel to other manufacturer's American-made vintage reissue amplifiers with PCBs inside.

 

It would be key to keep the styling and schematic of the original B-15, octal preamp tubes and all... and use high quality electronic components.
