    This Ampeg needs no introduction - it took me a long while to find a clean B50-R and I
    think the images will reflect that I was successful at it. There were plenty of threads
    on TB "back in the day", debating the finer points of which was better the B50 or B100
    Rocket. I found that I preferred the smaller size box and 12" speaker of the smaller amp.
    I've used this as a blues-jam kinda amp but I guess some folks like them for recording as
    well. Either way, a great amp that's got the Ampeg mojo and sound.

    Tolex is clean, as is the chrome dashboard. Handle is present and fully functional. Everything
    works as expected, but please note that volume pot is scratchy. Which leads me to why am
    I selling this? I just don't use it anymore and I hate to see it just sitting around so might as well
    see if someone else can use it - after you clean the volume pot of course.

    I'm really not interested in packing and shipping the amp, and I suspect you'd not be interested in
    paying what it would cost so offered for local pickup only. Also please note
    that the price is *FIRM* - $250 cash and carry, no trades please. I'm in
    North Central Mass (Westminster) and would be willing to drive a reasonable
    distance for a committed buyer.

    Great amp; I have one. Sounds like a lot more than 50 watts.
  3. I had a US-made B100 and loved it as well. I didn't even know they made a B50!
