    Did Ampeg cancel their PB800 head? Also are their cabs any good? They sounded good when I tried them but their sensitivity ratings are super low which usually means less volume? Right?

    I think they haven't started shipping the 800 yet. It's coming.

    I don't know about sensitivity ratings, but I think they sound good and are pretty loud for as small as they are.

    Don't know about the 800 either but I just purchased thier PB250 and PB210, and then picked up a new PB110 cab seperately.
    I think these amps sound absolutley amazing. I chose it over the EA iamp350 combo. My goal was to find a transparent hi-fi rig for my upright AND electric playing. I was so totally blown away when I plugged my upright into this rig.
    Quite a departure for Ampeg. The cabs sound very nice, surprisingly uncolored.
    Thumbs up here.
