    Here is a killer example of a 1976 Ampeg B-25B. As alot of you know who have bought stuff from me in the past my stuff is for studio use only. Never gigged or beat up. This amp is super clean with new tubes and a fresh service. It was used for a 4 hr recording block. It is 16 ohms. You can use this for guitar, or bass for a super warm clean tone. It will drive pretty good when cranked. I would like to get $600 shipped. I will look at all reasonable offers, but please no lowballers. This amp is super clean. Thanks!

    Free bump for a killer sounding amp! I own a 1973 B25B.

    Joe mentioned it has a 16 ohm output. That is true if you only plug into the "speaker out" jack. There is also a second output jack (called "external out") that is for another 16 ohm cab. But!!!....you can also use just a single 8 ohm cab by itself by inserting a dummy plug (just a 1/4" plug with nothing attached to it) into the regular output jack and plugging the 8 ohm cab into the external out jack. Bingo! That triggers an internal switch that uses the output transformer's 8 ohm tap instead of the 16 ohm tap (just like if you connect two 16 ohm cabs, which is an 8 ohm load). So if all you have is an 8 ohm cab, you are good to go! (or a single 16 ohm cab, or a pair of 16 ohm cabs).

    Yummy vintage Ampeg all-tube goodness! And Joe's price point is excellent, especially considering it has new tubes and a fresh service.

    Somebody is gonna be tone-happy!
