  1. So I'm looking for a light 2x10.

    Avatars top of my list.

    Anyway, rolled into the local music store to rent a 210 for the weekend (traveling alot, dont want to tote my 100 lb swr) nd I stumbled across a 210 ampeg.

    It's got a rounded front, with wheels and a slide out pull bar, like a suitcase. is this a portaflex? I thought they were comboes, hence my confusion.

    anyway, this thing is LIGHT!!! want want want.

    not a hyper expert on porta-flex, but I've used B-15s in the past and seen many in my day.

    Never heard of a 2x10 Portaflex, to my knowledge, there are
    B15
    B12
    B18

    of various different letter designations, but no 2x10.

    good luck
     
  3. I'll take a picture and post it later today, I can't find one on MF.
    I think it might have been the old ampeg logo, but i dunno.

    the 210 had stacked speakers, 400w @ 4 ohms, thin, probably weighed around 40 lbs.

    mysterious!

    You're right; maybe a bit. I bought mine (I have 2) several years ago and paid $400 and $350 respectively off of eBay. Now I think they are going for $250 - 300 depending on condition. But . . . they are coming up less and less frequently.

    I think GearHeadBassMan indicated he could buy it right now and condition was "OK". Maybe get the store down to $325? :confused:

    Oops. :( Just reread the original post . . . GearHeadBassMan stated that he could not get it for a while. Now I don't know what to say, :help:
