i've seemed to have found myself in quite the Ampeg dilemma...
So currently I own a 1969 Ampeg B25b head. Its in really great condition and everything on it works just fine, I've had it for a little over a year now and never have had a problem with it. The problem is that it runs at 16 ohms and is only 50 watts. I use it mainly for gigs and it just seems to not give me enough head room and gets distorted too early on the volume knob for me to get to a good level for gigs. i love the tone i do, but its just not "boomy" enough for most gigs.
So i'm thinking of selling it and "upgrading" to a 1975 V4b. I've found one for $700 in a local CL sale and I think I wanna pull the trigger on buying it. I need cash though, so that is why I wanna sell the B25b. The V4b would give me twice the watts correct? and it runs at 4 ohms, which works a lot better for my classic HLF 4x10 cab (which is currently wired to 16 ohms, but I would like to get it wired back to its original 4 ohms.)
My question is, is stupid of me to sell the B25b/should I hold onto it for nostalgic and rarity purposes??? Or should I sell the b25b and get the V4b.
What do you guys think I should do??? Any words of wisdom or advice from you dudes would be greatly appreciated.
