  • Sounds but not strong enough!

    Bass amp 100w lamp, copy of the classic SVT with the same format, the same facade, the same color, the same short copy settings according to EN 100 W !!!

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple to use, you branch, you play. I never had the manual hands. We quickly get an Ampeg all-tube sound. One likes or dislikes.

    SOUNDS

    It absolutely agree with the style that I do, so that I be taken then or in the studio. If this amp is sorely lacking in power if you want to get a clean and overdrive sound.
    The overdrive is great but it is good to have the choice or this amp does not offer this kind of opportunity. At first I loved it, and in the end it become disappointing.

    It was his only one with this......

    It was his only one with this type of material, the Ampeg sound, identifiable from 1000. This amp is really versatile.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years, and I bought another amp since. I really tried to amp before.
    This amp sounds great but lacks 100W more.

    All lamps, this is a classic.
    This is a head which delivers 100 W rms, which is very short for a bass. The pre-amplification stage is very quickly saturated when trying to grow a little.

    UTILIZATION

    The sound palette is extremely rich.

    SOUNDS

    Accuracy 1978

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is an amp that I bought in 1978, a lot of water under the bridge since then.

    The panel of rglage is fairly simple to use.
    The power seems to me a fair bit for use on scne and sound, I think lack of DEFINITIONS.
    The manual is explicit.

    SOUNDS

    I use this amp with many active and passive basses (Fender precision & Jazz, Music Man Sabre, Guild, etc. Ken Smith 4 and 5 string fretted or not. The drive enclosure Ashdown 2 x 10 ".

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this amp in rpetition only three years. His report seems to me means quality and prices of other amp I use scne better suited to play my fawn and sound I want. Ah still in the positive the V4 is pretty well built and seems to me to last

    Bass amp lamp. I like the sound, although a svt classic sr is more safe but it's not bad at all.

    UTILIZATION

    No problem for the use by the pallet against its is restricted.

    SOUNDS

    Jolie's full from the time when used with good hp, at least one 4X10. It's better with a 8X1O.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Well, but 50 Watts lamps and more is to say 6 power tubes had t prfrables. Good quality price, used to rock. Mtal refrain

    This is an amp basse.Il dlivre a power of 100 watts into 8 ohms from 4 6L6.
    The connection is enough to complte an amp in this range (2 jack inputs, XLR output pramp, amplifies output Speakon or jack according SERIES ..).
    There is a knob for gain, volume, low, medium (prselection frequency), and high.

    UTILIZATION

    This amp sounds very easy, it was sound lamp for a reasonable price. The "low" power is good for me on an amp lamp because it allows her to quickly get a natural saturation of the lamps (by pushing the gain) without putting the amp trs fort. I've never faced a situation where the amp n'tait not powerful enough to meet quality sound scnique. The inconvnient is that this......

I've never faced a situation where the amp n'tait not powerful enough to meet quality sound scnique. The inconvnient is that this amp sends a pretty heavy load in the speakers (some speakers saturate while the amp is that half of its power, for example).

    SOUNDS

    I find the amp trs versatile, you can do everything, I used to pop / rock and metal. I manage to have a sound for my two DIFFERENT types of music. I play with an active Jazz Bass. The amp is plugged into a wall Hartke VX 410 and a subwoofer 15 "Mount with Hp fostex; a nice ring to it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have 3 years, it has not changed is the strong! I use it on scne rpt and I've never had a bad surprise, I have tried many amps and it is part of my favorites. I think he has a good quality / price, I do it again the same choice if he was to lightning. The only complaint is its weight because it PSE PRS 20 pounds ... (a look at the size of transformers!)

    This is an all-tube amp 100W of power (6L6) mine is mounted in 6L6GC giving it more power

    At the rear there is all you need: jack and Speakon output for the HP slecteur impdance of 4 or 8 ohms (which for me is much better than with the classic SVT offers 2 or 4 Ohms), pr-amp output, between power-amp, balance out (what DI), and slave out (its sending the same thing but in the DI jack so asymtrique)

    rglage level is like the SVT Classic between 0dB or-15dB, gain, ultra low and ultra high, bass, mdium with adjustable frquence by slecteur, acute, and the master .
    The trick "plug & play" as they say!

    The trick "plug & play" as they say!

    UTILIZATION

    Level used is quite simple as I said, "plug & play", we must think of the switch 8 / 4 Ohms when you have not used an oversight can happen quickly.

    change of level I still have the same so it's not rglage trs complicated for me the only change is the balance of the bass pickups

    regarding the manual, it is clear, but no dtail the procedure of "biasage" of the amp should be with this dmerd Schma not provided, but apparently it will be a "fixed bias" is no rglage to do (I personally am against plutt, but I bought this amp secondhand and I is not changed the lamps to the Mesa 6L6GC is the time and sounds!)

    SOUNDS

    So his level this amp suits me well (that's her that I was taken ...) a big fat well size for the rock, sending its mchamment, and it does well with its mix also I play rock (typ 70) of the "music exprimental" reggae ect ... and all its absolutely gnial, I think it's personal amp is very well suited for rock and reggae.

    APRS is Ampeg's pretty typical as his, we like it or not, personal love
    versatility is not really his, his Ampeg sound ie the sound that is considered active on normment album in a certain era, but also on normment scne and its a long time!

    I served with a deluxe Jazzbass, well it sounds! both in the neck pickup bridge, or should the mdiator, its still sounds!

    I think you have the jou on a good speaker that I can not really do at home I have a 4 * 10 I will not mention the brand, I have a BPS 4 * 10 Hartke, and I rve to see what he gives in a real cabinet (not a cabinet or Ampeg 8 * 10 then, but a David Eden plutt or other type of high efficiency baffle trs)

    This category I put 10 because I bought this amp for sound, and not pay for the pleasure of an entire X retubing Anne, and me wearing the 20 kg, not to mention prcaution the need to take with this kind of stuff not to pt lamps ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    My opinion on the power as it is called the weak point of this amp, I play in a band or you play hard, and I is no problem for me to hear my evil grs 2 scratch, I play with the volume to half on the head (and yes a tube amp is pushed: d) and compared with the same speaker in the same room I let out a HA3500 more than half a volume for a prs is similar, but this has the prsence V4BH

    the particular feature I like most is the sound of a high-volume love lamps pushed the maser on the head, and do not talk about winning ...

    the problem is the lights, it's a cost: retubing ... is to prcaution: Permit allowed to warm to cool, not tap against the wall, carrying, but it also a sound!
    and weight ... Worse even, but when 20 Kg

    The report price is good quality of OCAS (fawn all it is several product)
    I prfre the classic SVT as at least it can be pushed!

    I was only a few months, I will update my opinion when I have the pool of port!

    The Ampeg V-4BH is a 100 watt tube bass guitar amplifier head. The amp is of course suitable with any speaker cabinet, but I've only used it with a matching Ampeg cab. The amp has two separate 1/4" inputs on the front panel (one at -15 db), and a speaker cable output in the back for sending the head to your cabinet. It also has an XLR direct output in the back in addition to a slew of other 1/4" connections for further routing possibilities.

    UTILIZATION

    It's not hard to figure out how to use the Ampeg V-4BH, especially if you're familiar with bass amps in general. The front panel consists of parameters for gain, bass, midrange/frequency, treble, and master volume. It also has......

    UTILIZATION

    It's not hard to figure out how to use the Ampeg V-4BH, especially if you're familiar with bass amps in general. The front panel consists of parameters for gain, bass, midrange/frequency, treble, and master volume. It also has buttons for choosing between either a hi or lo setting. I don't believe that a manual is necessary for the V-4BH.

    SOUNDS

    The sound of the Ampeg V-4BH is nothing short of outstanding. Ampeg is the best in the business when it comes to making amplifier heads, and products like this one is the reason. We have this head at the studio where I work where it's the main bass amp head to go along with our Gallien Kruger head. This one sees use on most of the sessions where bass is being recording, as it simply sounds rich and full beyond belief. It provides you with an adequate amount of control, but you really don't need to do very much except play to get a great tone with this amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you're looking for a top of the line, professional bass guitar amplifier head, the Ampeg V-4BH is a more than adequate choice. It's not nearly as expensive as you would think a top tier bass amp would be, but it's still not exactly cheap. Something like this is best suited for the professional or the experienced player who is playing a lot of shows and/or recording a lot. You simply can't get a bad tone out of the Ampeg V-4BH...
