V4B - zero comparison in my opinion
What do you think of pairing it with a PF 115HE. I'm trying to keep the cab to around 45 lbs or less. Also, any thoughts of pairing it with the Mesa Subway 115'or any other neodymium cabinets.
If you don't mind your low end getting overdriven when you push the amp hard, I'd go V-4b all the way. Much better-sounding than a 3pro as long as you don't need a ton of clean headroom.
If you like the big lows of the 410hlf, I think you'll like the PF115HE, too.
I would go V4B any day. Best tone I ever got out of an amp.
I did a lot of gigs with a V4B and a Heritage 410HLF. I thought it was a great combination because you could cut the bass on the amp - and there was still a lot of low end due to the design of the speaker cab - so the amp did NOT have to work as hard to produce the low end.
I've got one of each. I'm very pleased with both. Slightly different tone-wise but great sounding none the less. I think it comes down to look and physical use. Weight against "HOW COOL IS THAT VINTAGE V4B!!!!
With 2 115s (Fender Bassman Pro Neo cabs ) it gets very loud.
I'd go for the V4b because t00bs, but there are days I miss my old 3PRO. It was a solid reliable workhorse of an amp with versatile controls and great tone.
Ampeg v4b, tone for days!
V4B - all the way! I used to have a 3-pro - great but not the same - all tubes are way better!!!
