    I have an Ampeg B2 that I've had for years and I just got a B4. The question is, does anyone know which of the 5 "voicing filters" is the same as the B2? I liked what I was getting out of the B2, so i'm trying to duplicate it on the B4.

    Bump just in case anyone knows.

    Ok, I called Ampeg, so here's the answer in case anyone ever has the same problem.

    Ampeg says that "they're two different amps designed by two different engineering teams. They are not meant to sound the same."

    So, even though the preamp looks very similar the B4R is not intended to be a bigger B2R (which is what I was hoping.)
