Value For Money : Excellent
Head D 350W @ 4 ohm / 250W @ 8 ohms, compact (5 x 28 x 28 cm) and lightweight (3.6 kg). Settings on the front: switch to-15dB input level, gain, 3-band EQ, volume, limited. Front panel connectors: instrument input jack, stereo jack 3.5 input (MP3 etc..) Stereo headphone jack 3.5. Rear connectors: 2 speaker out (jack), XLR line output, an effects loop (send / return). So a head very busy, although I would have preferred a compressor instead of the limit ... I love the simple design and robust, the metal case exudes health.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, it plugs and one is at home.

SOUNDS

I play on a JB (active / passive). The head complies with sound, with a signature Ampeg sound quite discreet and very clean. The sound is rich and varied mediums easily punch growl. Graves 1 hour, mid and treble at 10 am to 2 am, it's a good combination to get an idea of ​​the scope of the register of the bass by not touching as the settings of the instrument. The sound that comes out of the DI is very loyal, and the head does not move when you walk up the volume. I compensate the lack of built-in compressor by the use of a pedal (BBE Opto Stomp). The headphone output is nickel, and very useful on this type of amp.

OVERALL OPINION

These four months, I have used it 4 times in concert (formation of 10 musicians). I appreciate the convenience (slipped into my bag of hardware, an old carrying case for notebook), I gained 10kg compared to my old head and a bag to lug around less. Since I travel a lot on foot or by public transport, I really appreciate having a compact, lightweight and ... solid! So a good sound, good ID, good body and good for a small potato and a small price, it really is a concentrate of Ampeg!
