    I bought one of these a few months back and think it is the coolest amp for practice and small gigs! It looks cool and sounds FANTASTIC, esp with passive basses I use. I disconnect the tweater and get an amazing, warm vintage tone.

    I have read on another site some folks are getting these that don't work, but mine works just fine, bought it brand new.

    Right now I am playing a Waterstone Indra I bass, short scale, through this combo, and it sounds huge, round, and BASS-Y. No pedals, no effects, just straight into the Ampeg.

    Anyone else out there using one of these? Your thoughts?

    Do you mean the B200R combo?

    Yeah, that's the one. It is my first Ampeg and I really love it. The tone is amazing, and the look is VERY old school.

    Congratulations! I had a B50r (smaller 12" 50w version -tube) only amp I regret selling.

    Thanks! I will hang on to this one, they are nice amps. Presently I play my 4 string basses throught this, and also split a signal to this amp and an Epiphone Valve Standard guitar amp for my 12 string basses. The Ampeg delivers a nice hot low end and the Epi gives highs and crunch.
