Well I finally pulled the trigger on an Ampeg PF-500. It was at a decent price used from GC, and I did also purchase the 1 year protection plan with it.
While I was at my local GC last Sunday they had a Orange TB 1000 amongst their use amps. I took it for a spin and it was very "meh" for me, I don't know if I was expecting more from it or what. I then tried the PF 500 and it was just what I was after so I got a used model sent up from Palm Beach FL.
I went and picked up my amp today and gave it a quick test in the store after given the offer to do so. Everything worked and it now accompanies my 2x15 cab.
The only thing the amp is missing is the 4 screw on rubber feet. I'll have to do some searching on the interwebz for those. IMG_0994
