General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love it. This is my first big bass amp moving up from an old Line6 practice amp and I must say that Im pretty impressed. Great Tone, great adjustability, great range of volume, It can be low enough to practice in the house or loud enough to disturb the neighbors not to mention I haven't tried out the headphone hook up yet. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It seems to be pretty well built. The cabinet is solid and the head has a nice looking finish on it. The fan has been pretty quiet as well. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Yes. Tone control. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? Excelent. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? Yup Tone How is the tone? Distortion vs clean? Ampeg tone baby. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Not cheap, but you do get what you pay for. I'll have to see how it holds up.
It is what it is ... not your grandpa's Portaflex

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I have Four other ampeg products from a "practice amp" to the "rock concert rig" . The bigest issue I have is that the clips that hold the top/amp on vibrate making way too much noise to ever use for recording with any mic. Of course it does have a DI like most Ampeg products but this vibration is very distracting. I knew I was buying a cheaper version of the Portaflex but I don't remember having that issue with the older ones. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? If you did not know any better this is a fantastic rig espcailly if you are just a weekend Musician. It has all you would need to be able to do the gig. However if you really need a LOUD AMP this is not the one for you . Even with the 500 Watt head you are only getting about 200 actual watts into the 8 ohm cab. Now if you want to spend more cash on the extension cab...don't.. Go ahead and get the SVT 4 with the 8/10 cab. you'll be money ahead. This rig will not do for any hard rocking band. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? As with all Ampeg products you get the best sound for the buck. Just depends on how many bucks you want to spend. I like the compression built in to the head,very handy. As for the rest, it is as expected .. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? For an all electronic head it is clean and solid. Not as flexable as a tube amp but it is a third of the price. Still prefer my SVT over it but that rig comes in at a little over 200 lbs and this just a grunt over 70.. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? It has a very user friendly set up. Tone How is the tone? Distortion vs clean? Refer to the sound comment.. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? It was in line with the competition ... as far as value that is to be determined over time.
This is a keeper!

Tone is great it has many features that lets you create your own style and sound. General Your general opinion of this product. It's a good amp it sounds great, looks great feels good and smooth. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone of the amp was really smooth i loved it. Its great because it gives me the ability to clip the sound when its to loud. It warns me about it.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great amp Only Change I would make is on the Cab. Ampeg please put side mounted handles on the cab. Would make it so much easier to carry. Other than that great amp. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Love the flip top. Everybody that sees me set it up loves the flip top design and all of my gear is right inside Love it. Sound How is the tone? Sound is great. Still working on fine tuning my sound but right out of the box it sounded amazing. General Your general opinion of this product. I love this amp the flip top design, the ease of use, and everything I need is right under the hood :-) I would like to have side mounted handles though cause 60 Lbs. of awesome isn't easy to carry, but that isn't enough to make me not love this amp. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is great I love the vibration in my feet when I hit the low notes.
500 watts makes for great low end
