    I got my hands on this amp and when I also managed to get an ampeg 810 to go with it. I very happy with this set but I would like to know if any of you own the same amp or even the same set and also a bit more about the amp (,what do you think of it,how to get the best sound out of it (using both channels, I play punkrock)) Ampeg doesn't manufacture these badboys anymore, right?

    I owned one and I believe it was really very good. Unfortunately it broke down on me twice. I traded it for a 4 pro because the model was end-of-life so the defective one could not be replaced anymore.
    I always used the clean channel, the OD channel is pretty useless imo. But apart from that great sounding amp!
  3. I have one of these, also with an 810, I love tone of this amp but seldom use the overdrive channel unless it's to blend with the clean channel. I would experiment with blending the two channels until you get the sound you want, of course this has to be done in a band situation. The only better sounding amp I've had was the SVT CL. I believe the 5 was discontinued some years ago by Ampeg.
