Hi all I have this amp and I hate it. My amp broke right before jig 2 years ago and I had to run to gc to buy something that night. That being said I thought I couldn't go wrong with ampeg, well I did. This thing sounds like a neutered ball of cottage cheese falling down a well. Anyway, just asking for opinions on what would be a good amp to replace this with for 500 or less used. I like a bright modern sounding amp, I am not so much into vintage sound.
