I have a 1970 Ampeg V-2 guitar amp that is, without a doubt, the best sounding amp I own for amplifying bass. It has crystal clear highs and deep smooth lows, and with the three freq. selectable midrange to cut or boost, it's easy to dial in a good tone for about any bass on any speaker cabinet I have. The problem with the V-2 is well known; at 50-60 watts, it's not powerful enough to play in a lot of settings. The next step up is the V-4 which I've read does have enough power to play in most indoor settings. So a couple questions for those that have had the opportunity to hear all; 1. Does the V-4B sound very similar to the V-2 guitar amp? 2. Does the V-4 guitar amp and the V-4B (bass) amp also sound very similar? I have a Fender Studio Bass head that has plenty of power, but it does not have the same tone / voicing as the V-2 & I really prefer the V-2 tone. If the V-4 guitar amp and the V-4B sound about the same, it provides more opportunities to find a used unit, and I can ignore the reverb just as I do on the V-2.
