A versatile tone machine.

What is your opinion of this product?
Back in the day I played through a 90's Ampeg SVT-2 with an 8x10 cab and have always loved that Ampeg tone. A year ago I got back into music and purchased the V4B and the matching SVT 2x12 cab. I love both the tone and portability. While the V4B is obviously not the same, it's every bit as versatile and sounds great at low volumes while keeping the hum almost non-existant. Whether playing through a RIC 4003 or a P-bass, I can get booming lows, mid range grind grind, and/or clear cutting highs. The build quality is great and the price reasonable. My only complaint is at $1200, I wish it would have shipped with an amp cover. I was able to buy one separately...but it would have been nice not to.

The tone I have been looking for!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a wonderful "smaller" Ampeg tube amp. Still heavy (66 lbs), and it brings the heat. Have used it for one gig already, and people have already commented about how great it sounds. Also, the vintage look really stands out.

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Cuts through nicely. Never abrasive. The entire bass fret board is held remarkably even. Sweet highs, funky mids, growly bottom....Very musical. Used this amp with TC electronic 2x12 and GK 15. Went through 4 bands in 6 hr. event. All were very impressed with the tone and playability. And "No, you cannot borrow it....Sweet amp.

I love this amp!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have always wanted a tube amp and now I have that AWESOME TONE that I have chased for 30 years! I was concerned that 100 watts wasn't enough power but tubes are more like 300 solid state watts! I can get the awesome SVT tone in small venues without blowing the windows out. Being able to finance for a few months is great too!
