In 2011 Ampeg set out to corner the lightweight mini rig bass market. I got me hands on a PF 350 head to test drive. I had high hopes for this head. I have an SVT210 AV cab that I love, so seeing as these would match perfectly I had my fingers crossed.

A local shop shop that I am in cahoots with is an Ampeg dealer. I got this head as soon as it was available to the public. $299 is the street price.

It is very light in weight. I can toss it in my gig bag and go. The knobs are simple: Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble as well as a master volume knob. There is an XLR out in the back in case you want to go direct into a PA or recording device.

Lack of power. This bummed me out greatly. It is rated at 350 watts at 4 ohms. The cab I was using was 8 ohms but still that should give me enough juice to play out live in a small bar setting.

Looks nice, it's light, but could probably take some abuse. I've only had it a few weeks and don't use it much since the insignificant power ratings, so I cannot comment too much on if I think it will stand the test of time.

Bought it, had hopes, but with the gain and volume both at 6 it is barely enough juice to practice with my band. I'm back to using my Hartke HA 2500 which is rated at 100 less watts, yet I've never had to put the volume past 3!
