Ampeg V-4BH... opinions?

  1. Well a local music store has one of these in, used, for 850$ CDN. Not too shabby considering another local which gets good deals on Ampegs has them new for 1200$ CDN, and the list price is 1700$ CDN. I like the SVT sound and Ampegs haven't really disappointed me in the past, so I figure this would be a pretty good first head to get. Any opinion on these?
  2. I own an ancient V4. Though the new V4BH isn't quite the same, it's sorta similar.

    Advantages: nice tube tone

    Disadvantages: it's only 100 watts. It weighs a ton. And the impedance selector is only 4 or 8 ohms, IIRC.
