    Anyone else notice that Ampeg keeps recycling the same (word) over and over with a different name and price tag? :rollno:

    haha... yeah, that's pretty annoying. They should just call it: "The loud 3Pro" :p

    As for the price... well... I'm sure I'll get to try one someday... if I get signed to a major label and play shows at MSG. :rolleyes:

    are they going to be changing all the face plates for a new look, or did someone there not get the memo?

    I like the look of these heads. Would you rather have a gold anodized faceplate like a kitchen appliance with red and blue plastic knobs on it like an Eden? :eyebrow:

    No I'd rather have a product that I didn't think was worth less then my shoes.....

    Yes I have hate for Ampeg...yes I shouldn't be brining this into the thread. Yes you can flame me.

    Oh well atleast I'm really satisfied with Mesa :bassist:

    Ampeg makes decent products.....

    The only thing that pops into my head though is

    "AAARRRGGGH!!!!! $1300!!!!!! WHY WAS I EVER BORN??!!?!"

    And.... stuff of that nature.
     
  9. I'd take the new Genz Benz head over that. Ampeg = not loud for the watts in my limited experience.

    i'd like to try one versus the mesa bigblock 750, i'm pretty sure the mesa would kill it.
    or versus the wt-800.
