Dont tell Jimmy, but he was right... (NAD: PF-500)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by CL400Peavey, Apr 21, 2012.

  1. So in light of my AoN fEARful 15/6 I have been looking at micro heads for a quick and light grab and go solution for practice. It just didnt make any sense to tote around a 100 pound head when the cab only weights 35 pounds. So after trying out what was available locally I ended up with a PF-500.

    Now let me get this out of the way: I have never liked Ampeg products, I saw them getting a lot of hype and they werent my sound. That said out of all the micros the PF heads are king in my book. It almost pained me to admit that the Ampeg was the not only the best option, but the only one that spoke to me. It was saying "buy me... I sound fantastic... I'm not crazy expensive... buy me..." So I traded in my 810 TX and walked out a 150 pounds lighter with a brand new PF-500.

  2. Congrats mate. Looks like a superb rig & bass. I don't doubt at all that it sounds great!

    let us know about the reliability...I've heard those things are notorious for failing

    +1 on the Ampeg Head, the jury is out on them. I prefer older and even heavier Ampeg heads. Great pic of your of luck .............:)

    Wow, what a couple of bringdowns. You guys must be a lot of fun at funerals, too.

    It's a fine amp with a great sound and a 2 year warranty. My PF350's been a champ. A handful of people on Talkbass isn't exactly an epidemic.

    Jimmy you crack me up.......

    CL, let us know how you like the PF with the fEARful. I've been tempted to get one for when I just use my 12/6. That way I can leave my rack at home.
  7. The best thing in that photo is the bass! I LOVE the HS Stingrays...I have the same bass in White/Tort/Rosewood. Lovely stuff!
