1100 watts of Ampeg sonic bliss. The last several of these sold on TalkBass for $700 shipped, this one is yours for
$600 shipped CONUS. No International shipping.
Be sure to check out the spec sheet
from Ampeg on this beauty. It's not made anymore, and that's an unfortunate reality, because this guy is a hammer!
-The tube voltage knob is a sweet little feature that regulates the power to the tubes to go from old school compressed and thick to a more modern tight and punchy, all with the twist of a dial.
-The semi-parametric EQ can provide you with a plethora of tone options. Be forewarned though, it's very powerful, you can make your instrument sound terrible if you boost or cut too much at the wrong frequency.
- Bass and treble knobs are +/- 12dB at 50Hz and +14/-19 dB at 5kHz, respectively
- Ultra high switch adds 6 dB @5kHz
- Bright switch adds 6 dB @2kHz
-There is an included compressor that will adjust the compression ratio, but nothing else (no individual attack, release, threshold, output settings) handy to have if you don't already have a compressor, or if you do, keep it set to zero for a nice unaffected signal.
-The gain knob is for the preamp tubes only, and you'll want to set it such that the peak light flashes occasionally under your hardest playing.
- There are switches that control active/passive input, mute, and ultra low (+2.5 dB @50hz, -12dB @560hz, +1.5 dB @5khz)
I should add that the power amp section is cooled by two fans which are noticeable in a quiet setting, but indiscernible at a gig.
Trades: I'm probably going to flip whatever you trade me, as I really want to free up the cash and certain items sell better than others (which is how I got this amp in the first place). That being said, I'm going to be pretty picky with trade options and I probably won't trade up (I won't send you my amp and cash). Basses
