  • Ampeg ST-25L Olympian

    Ampeg ST-25L Olympian - "A rarer blast from the past."


    First proper semi pro band I joined had one of these. Used with a Hiwatt 4x12 cab. I was in heaven, a Cadillac as opposed to the clapped out Austin, Vox, AC30's I used up until then. Great reverb, a vibrato that sounded almost 'Leslie' like, silver…

  • Ampeg J-20

    Ampeg J-20 - "Why the hell didn't this amp turn into a best seller ?" has images


    Why didn't this amp ever turn into a best seller ? First, I think the reason lays in this amp's history. No one ever associates Ampeg with guitar amps anymore. Still, in the golden age of rock'n'roll, Fender and Ampeg shared most of the guitar amp…

  • Ampeg SVT-450H

    Ampeg SVT-450H - "Solid-state, but AMPEG all the same"


    Light amp head with a big sound Used particularly with a 4x10 classic and a 1x15 classic I play an active Fender Jazz Bass, so I get conventional results, with the metallic Fender attack and the muffled AMPEG sound... I love it. The only downside …

  • Ampeg BA-108 v2

    Ampeg BA-108 v2 - "Great tone!"


    This is a perfect amp for practice or for beginners. It features tools like a 3-band EQ, MP3 input and a headphone input as well. With power of 25 watts and an 8'' high output speaker this amp delivers the classic ampeg tone with a great mid-low fre…

  • Ampeg Gemini 1

    Ampeg Gemini 1 - "Very compact"


    I bought the Ampeg Gemini 1 from GC in Austin TX in June of 2009. I purchased it for use during a summer trip where space and weight would be an issue. I've played much bigger amps (who hasn't) and I've played better amps (who hasn't). But the Gemini…

  • Ampeg SVT-3 Pro

    Ampeg SVT-3 Pro - ericthegreat's review


    I have had this head for about 7 years now and the tone and power is great. I have it paired with a 410hlf cab. It gives you that great ampeg tone! This thing is also built like a tank. I have it mounted in a rack and was backed into by a mini van be…

  • Ampeg J-12T

    Ampeg J-12T - nickname009's review


    This is a classic amp! The Ampeg Jet! 15 watts all tube, class A, point-to-pointm handwired (I think). With 12ax7s and I believe EL84s. Super retro look, well it's a retro amp! Front panel: volume, tone, and tremolo. There's been many types …

  • Ampeg J-12T

    Ampeg J-12T - "A Very Good Modern Version Of a Classic Amp"


    First, let me point out that I am writing this review years after this particular amp has been disncontinued. I got the one I own only a couple of months ago, and consider myself lucky to have it. This is NOT a "feature rich" amp. It's basicall…
