Most everyone likes ampeg, but which is your favorite?
I use an SVT-3pro & like it a lot. Tube tone, decent power & fairly lightweight, although I rarely need to move it. The eq seems to be noisy lately...
My favorite Ampeg Head ia the BT140. Fav Combo B15S, B15N, B15F, B3, and maybe a BA-112 for bedroom use.
If you factored in Price, I probably wouldnt even vote
But if I had to pick up one head and take it out on tour with me, I'd take the 4Pro. I like having the diversity of getting a fat tone, or going towards hi-fi if I indeed ever wanted to. My favorite overall tone I've heard from Ampeg is the 3Pro... but it just doesnt have what it takes to compete in louder music. From what it looks like, the new 6Pro seems like a pumped up version of the 3Pro. It does have a slightly different tube configuration as far as the preamp and drive tubes go... but I imagine that it sounds somewhat similar.
I've only ever played through one: the 4pro. So that's what I voted for.
I don't like modern day Ampeg. But I haven't tried any of the vintage stuff.
I don't like the Ampeg tube pre+SS power amps. Go anything all tube!
