Ampeg Sound

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by MrFortuneCookie, Oct 19, 2001.


  1. Would you guys say that the Ampeg cabs are imperative to the Ampeg sound? Cause i'm thinking maybe to get an Ampeg SVT II Pro and a Mesa Powerhouse 1000 cab. So do you guys think that the Ampeg cab is vital to the Ampeg sound, or you think it would sound good with the Mesa? Granted, i will of course try it out myself, but i was curious on your opinions.
     
  2. Of course heads are designed with their own cabs in mind, but they will definately work with other cabs. Like your thread said, try them!
     
  3. I have a ampeg head and cab, and when I mix and match them with my friends gear, (peavey and hartke) there is definatly a difference in sound, I like mine the best but everyone has their own opion
     
  4. yeah. Another idea i'm thinking of is maybe the powerhouse 1000 cab, a bass 400+ and an SVP-Pro for both Mesa and Ampeg sounds.
