Where can I find an Ampeg F-1X dealer, and what should I expect to pay for a new or used unit?
Check my sig...
...can't post any numbers here (against forum rules!), but feel free to PM or e-mail me directly - or get the number off the website and give me a call!
Do you mean an Alembic F1-X? If so, and you want a new one, Gard is your man! I just purchased one from BC. You can expect to pay anywhere from $400-500 for a used one in excellent condition. You can get a new one for around $599-650, depending on where you get it!
I have an Alembic F-1X in very good condition, (a couple scratches on top from rack mounting, front is very nice shape and it works perfectly) that I will sell for $350+shipping
let me know: email@example.com
If I may...
My good Friend Ron Mcgee is selling Alembic again, he's a one man Alembic dealer, and I'm pretty sure he has a new unit in stock.
He's a really nice, personable guy (I'm sure Gard is too)
Give him a call at (209) 345-3744
So, that answers that question, I couldn't find an Ampeg F-1X anywhere!, thanks folks!
BTW Gard, moderation is the needed survival skill to live in NOLA these days. To old for that sh*t.
And thanks for the offers to sell, it's Christmas and of course, I'm a broke musician....
dancin dave, I'll contact you in a couple months if I have the money to see if you still have the Alembic.
At this time last year, my local Music Go Round store had a really nice one for $199. I was focusing on some family issues and missed it... Same store had a nice SF-2 for the same price 3 or 4 months ago... Boy, that would have been a nice pair...
If you're not in a big hurry, keep your eyes and ears open and maybe you'll luck out.
Now for an FAQ. Seems there are two different models, one based on a Fender design, and one based on an SVT design. Is that the case. If so I'm looking at the SVT'er.
Then I think what you're looking for is the Ampeg SVP-PRO.
Starting to get the picture. I'm playing through a Demeter VTBP-201s and I've been reading threads on possible tubes. Wanting a warmer sound than the Sovtecs. As a long time SVT guy, I wanted something in that direction. I read about the Demeter, F-1x and I guess the SVP Pro in comparison threads, and got my wires crossed. I would appreciate comments on either of the Alembic or Ampeg, I think I'm gonna take some good advise on the tubes and find a pair of Chinese 12ax7s for the Demeter. Which I love BTW.
I got mine, mint condition, but used, off ebay for $350, very happy with it.
I haven't tried the Demeter or the Ampeg. The Alembic does have a very "warm" sound, to me. It doesn't get grindy like the Ampeg though. If you push it, more of a fartiness. I use a SansAmp for grind.
