why even bother with any other other head when you can have a ampeg of this quality at this price.I am a old rocker been using ampeg for 30 years you can't beat it I still have my svt 350 but it is heavy these are the future light easy to handle and plenty of power. Besides that it has a volume on your lineout it is your monitor on stage just up the p.a. thats what it is for to many guys run there amp way to loud it's just for you to hear on stage not the whole venue.I highly recommend this head to anybody period.beginner you never need to upgrade, pro you will be happy to .
It was intense. I played with it a few times at the music store and well you really see the joy you can have with it compared to my behringer 4500 ultrabass bulls**t. Its so great and has sexy tone, a must have for anyone. :)
This is my first Ampeg and I couldn't be happier with it. I achieve every sound I could possibly want out of it, Great Highs and pretty good lows. I'm currently playing this through a 115 custom built cab, and it does a great job with that. the only complaint I have is the somewhat low power output of 300 watts @ 4Ohms and 175 watts @Ohms, but other than that no complaints so far!
i paired this amp head with a nemesis 2x12 cab.. i rattle pretty much ever wall in my house with the gain on 3/4 and the master on 1/2. i love this heads simplicity. You get the great Ampeg tone and presence for a relatively low price.
I like this amp. I traded in a Behringer BX1200 combo and a Behringer 300W head. Both Behringers were heavy as hell and for the most part pretty exceptional items for thier price. But I had an SVT210 cabinet and wanted to have an Ampeg head. I am a broke musician, but I made it work and the sound is the most important difference. I can hear the difference and I like it. I played the B2 series in the store, but I actually liked the clean pre-set sounds rather than having a manual EQ mainly because I already own a rackmount EQ. Still, for the price of the trade in I own my first Ampeg and I feel great about it.
This amp is perfect for small to medium sized gig. 300 watts of Ampeg power is ample for most venues. I play a Fender Jazz 5 string thru this amp into an SWR Triad that handles 400 watts at 4 Ohms. This rig reproduces the complete dynamic range of a 5-stringer with no low end clip. Although this a solid state amp it still gives you the trademark warmth expected from the Ampeg brand. No Graphic EQ, no problem. I have played 29 gigs with this rig in the last two months since I bought it and it has held up great in all environments. Never had the master gain above halfway. It runs quite cool.
Great Ampeg quality for the price. Easy controls and a line out. You pay for what you get here. Its not a great sound but it really isn't bad either. Definetly Pair it with a 4X10 and maybe a sansamp bass driver and you'll have a decent rig going. Toodles.
