Currently I am in the market for a new amp and like most I am on a bit of a budget. I have been looking on anything from Guitar Center's used site, to Craigslist and yes even Ebay. I came across a Ampeg Micro VR, great condition working and cosmetically. From what I can tell it is 200w at 4 ohms and does have a good set of features. However my Mesa Powerhouse 2x15 EV cab is 8 ohms so I understand it will run at 150w at 8 ohms, still should be pretty loud though with my 2x15.
I of course am not going to be playing stadiums or arenas with this rig, however medium size gigs and most times I have DI or Mic'ed PA support anyways. I also appreciate it's smaller form factor. My question is would be a good match with my Mesa 2x15 and can you get a variety of tones and such the amp and does it handle effects well? I have read generally positive reviews about this amp, however there have been some saying the amp does have problems. I know everyone's experience is different, however any insight would be awesome. It would be my first Ampeg piece of gear ever...I know I know hard to believe
