Ampeg B200r
This is a hybrid amp with a 12AU7 in preamp.
It is the 220w (which already sends)
It has a hp Eminence 15 "Custom Designed.
Simple 4 band EQ (bass, low mid, high mid, treble)
Three small buttons that serve to boost different frequencies.
A gain for the preamp, two diode for peak saturation volume.

Level connectivity:
There are two went to 0 and-15db for active basses.
Output "phones" (jack) and an output "line" (XLR) with their own output level.
If we go back the beast we see two types of outputs to the hp "with horn" and "without horn" which for me works very well.


A real say I never opened the manual.
It's plug and play, you plug the sound you ride, and you dessuite pure sound! Good must still be low following ;)


Have revolutionized the Ampeg bass amplification as they do in some dung midrange that interval not Moitiers their price (my opinion), so I did not know what to expect because I n 've never heard this edition!
I turn on the amp, I let a little heat history to take full advantage of the lamp preamp, and surprise! Its a great vintage, with big low round, 15 "to do a lot. Regarding low or rather sub-bass is pretty well servis.Les are crisp treble and midrange good 70's, the luxury ..
Okay I admit that this amp is not very polyvalant and it is to my taste the only thing that we just blame him, he is oriented vintage, even if there are ways to make it sound more modern view the bass and EQ!
If you want THE sound Ampeg, so I do not know his pence to be the best choice.
I play a 5 string Thudebird and really benefits, its gives a fabulous stamp. I play mainly rock and finger like a pick it sounds! I also have an OD (Snarling Dog Tweed E Dog) who do resortir grain fabulous.
Group is more easily found his place.
In short, a great amp!


I use it for 2 years, I've tested a lot of models before this one (Ashdown, MarkBass, Harkte, Warwick, Gallien Krueger) and for the price (it seems to me 400E reduction), it is a quality Student Reports / exeptionnel price!
100 I remake this choice with the same budget.

HarkBones's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ampeg B200r
AMP 220w

Pramp lamp (a lamp 12AU7)
amplifiers transition
hp + piezo tweeter easily dbranchable
feature ultra low, mid, and high
more legalization band 4

nice range, but not hyper polivalente served its purpose, the "ultra" are feeling well, especially low that really grow. function without tweeter will delight people who do not like or who likes choice. The Difference is subtle, but the grain treble and the body of her comes out changs. good design when we know that the goal is to reproduce the "vintage" with a few extras.


Trs simple


Style: vintage plutt East, as mentioned above, however, pretty clear sound, but with warmth, touch. the 220w are not the strongest I've heard, but the sound of prsence. no great variation on the wholesale rglages brings subtlety, but it does sound good. I heard bad reviews, and that's what I'm doing yrpondre little positive comment, I like much more than style brands markbass, Hartke I heard the same kind of range. Hartke: not too much personality. Markbass: too cold, trs good quality but a little dplaisant my ears.
A little CHRE perhaps for charactristiques it offers, but still enjoyable. aa changed my game and I spend hours playing. I play with a precision passive standard, although the brand caractristque my bass as well all spring even connotes "vintage" (but really not too vintage caricature.)


2 weeks of use.
I like this clear, you can really adjust lime with her little fingers.
It seemed to me much more than INTERESTED ba 500 is good but not that small dclic and whose 500 watts m'intresse does too (though with an extension cabinet may be that the sound takes off a bit, not try priced a little more EXAGRES (agree to pay for watts, but then with a sound that follows). So qualitprix report ampeg typically good days. (ie expensive but we do not regret if you like the sound it gives, and you know you will not find elsewhere.)
ngatif the only point is that it is not a magic button that turns it into 810 hp with head vst. (A solution which no manufacturer seems to have pens.)
The highest score, so a little subjective, but is it that this is not always the case?

Ampeg B200r
200 w
Pramp lamp
transistor amplifier
function activated: ultra low, mid, and high
3 settings: bass / midle / treble
level of use of pramp: 2 LED 1 green and 1 red
a gain and a Master's it


You turn it all afternoon and it Up!
we find its settings in 5 minutes
simpler you die
WARNING: the head is connected to a jack HP 2-shot possible: with and Without horn horn.
default is to connect with horn, if you meets on Without horn: the amp pete! fuses HS, HS head, there's more in return Ampeg
I'm not the first to have this problem, it is supposedly rgl, but I bought mine there aa few months and boom!


Warm, clean, trs rock: deep bass and clear treble remaining trs
I play with a passive JazzBass 75. trs they go well together ...
I was looking for an amp without X miles buttons and have the amplitude (the whole lamp is too expensive for me).
I just put a compressor Ehancer Berhinger Composer Pro Xl front, for 60 euros a chance it really gives the potato


Seems less powerful than other 200W
I use it for 2 months, I have a peavey TNT: nothing to see now does not forgive any mistakes.
I tried in the range of 500-800 euros Hartke, Markbass, Ashdown,
I have not found the warmth, simplicity and it's vintage.
Compact and No lugging heavy trs, with wheels
A try before you buy of course! but do not forget.
I welcome this choice! It suits me perfectly
I correct: given the problem and the default described above: I suggest you test the two positions in the store before you buy

Beansbassman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ampeg B200r
It's a nice combo with a lamp 12AU7 Hybrid (Electro Harmonix) in preamp.
There are four EQ knobs (bass, low mid, high mid, high), one for the preamp, 1 for volume and a final output level for the headphone / lineout in XLR is misleading but this is not a DI.
Boosts 3: bass and high bass and so increase the treble, mid and he digs the mediums.
Bowl 15 "and tweeter that does not blow too easily strike.
There are also books with wheels, easily assembled / disassembled.


The configuration is very simple, you go up the level of the preamp up to the limit of the red clip, then the volume and really sounds like "vintage tube", perfect for playing soul / blues / rock 70's.


I have a good custom Plow son up with ropes course, a purr ... excellent. States that before I had a combo Markbass 15 "which quickly made silent as head of the room, with the Ampeg is of nickel. For fans of 80's slap is clearly not the best choice.


I had 2 combos in 3 weeks (11 days of use).

And yes, despite his pretty little face and sound of hell, the reliability is not his strong point. The first was a big worry of blowing the line out and sent deuxime big "shoot / poc" ignition / off, as well as connecting / disconnecting the lineout or headphones, finally after 4 days (only one repeated) it was no longer short allum I stop my experience of the B-200R.
I may have run into a series problem in any case it is unworthy of a great manufacturing as Ampeg.
I returned my first love Hartke aluminum cones and hanging a dead donkey ... fortunately for Fender released the TV series Bassman, which is in line with the Ampeg rocket, a real treat!
