    They are brand new - going to be released at NAMM in January, along with the Heritage B-15.

    Looks pretty awesome to me :) Wouldn't mind an 8/900 version though. I'm a huge fan of the little Micro AV amp but wanted a *lot* more powah.

    Sweet, I missed the cabs. I just saw the picture of the amp on their facebook page and googling turned up the heads.

    Ampeg has a winner!
     
  5. Dang - can't wait to hear about how they sound! I see the 500W has a built in compressor and an effects blend knob? I have been complaining about rig weight and have been strongly considering Markbass - but I'll wait a bit longer and see how these pan out! :D

    The PF500 has my name written all over it.

    I'll certainly give these a try. If they can do "tube growl" then I might consider picking one up... the price point is right.

    Price concerns me. It is low enough that corners may have been cut in r&d, components, andmanufacturing. I'm interested, but concerned.

    I'm all about Made in USA - but the Micro VR is a great little amp and a buddy of mine has a BA115 that is made in China and it sounds great. LOUD has been making strides to re-build public confidence and hopefully these amps will do just that.

    I really dig the fact they are selling them as seperate cabs - bet they'll sound great with a tube head.
     
  10. +1 The mix & match feature is pretty darn cool. I'm thinking the PF350/115 might be the rig for me. In another thread, it was pointed out that maybe they'll make an all tube head for the new Portaflexes? That'd be the hotness right there.

    I'm not talking about where it is made, but how well it is made. This price point wreaks of just slapping an existing preamp to an existing power module, putting it in an inexpensive box, and selling it.

    This might be a great little amp; time will tell. I do like the looks of the cabinet though.

    tried the svt 7 pro yet? i haven't but it's loaded with power. a little bigger than most class d amps but hardly a tough carry.

    the links were put up by ams "erroneously" because it's not available yet. same day music apparently had links up, too. makes me think this was a publicity stunt to get interest up. worked on me, that's for sure. well played, ampeg. well played indeed.
     
  16. +1 worked on me too.

    So, while I was at work on Friday, I suspected they'd come down and took screenshots of the AMS page(s). I could post them here if people like (I know I know... duh :p), but I want to scan through TB policy first to see if it's against the rules. ;)

    it's not. they've already been posted a couple times.
     
  18. Well then... here you go. :)

    I edited out some things, I didn't think we needed to see their current deals on mic cables and such. ;)
