      Comments about Ampeg V-4B All-Tube 100W Classic Bass Amp Head:

      Hi there,

      the new Ampeg V-4B is a great Reissue of the original one produced 40 years ago. The amplifier got a wonderful sound and is like the Ampeg SVT an absolutly must have for middle and greater events and performances. Why the new V-4B does not come with aluminum knobs seems to be a secret only Loud Inc. could anwser.

      Anyway, who is interested in this typical kind of aluminum knobs should have a look to the following supplier: www.rotary-relaunch.com.

      Thanks for the article!

        Comments about Ampeg V-4B All-Tube 100W Classic Bass Amp Head:

        I've always loved Ampeg tube amps and was excited to see they were going to reissue the V-4B. I've now had mine for several months and could not be happier. The workmanship is flawless and I have had zero problems. Played through a variety of cabinets, that tube Ampeg sound always shines through. If you don't need a 300 watt SVT, this is the one!

            Comments about Ampeg V-4B All-Tube 100W Classic Bass Amp Head:

            Recently purchased this amp new from MF and it sounds wonderful through two Ampeg SVT 210AV cabs. No cosmetic defects or any problems whatsoever as mentioned in the previous review - no hum either. Don't let that review sway you, this is a serious tone machine that was perfect when I received it in fit, finish and sound. As for price, I think it's right about where it should be for an all-tube amp. Don't want to take my word for it? Venture over to talkbass.com where you can read more in-depth comments.

            Comments about Ampeg V-4B All-Tube 100W Classic Bass Amp Head:

            The amp looks just like the 1970's Ampeg V4b sans the original aluminum knobs (at least my early 70's model had heavy aluminum knobs) - a very good looking amplifier. Unit arrived undamaged in terms of packing and shipping but had several minor defects - mostly cosmetic due to a lack of proper quality control (opinion). But, the most disappointing thing is the low level hum - too loud to be used in a studio for recording. Sound is NOT the same as the 7027 output version from the 70's despite what Ampeg videos say. Although, sound is good. I think the amp is way overpriced when compared to the competition. In my opinion, I would only recommend this amp if priced much lower than the current "retail". I will be offering up a couple of videos on my Youtube channel in the next couple of days so you can decide for yourself whether this is something you want - I am keeping mine because I miss my old one and love the looks.
