    5491370C-18F9-4F61-AF7B-FFC2A2DA1224. A used Ampeg V4B RI that was the same price as what sweetwater is selling the pf50t right now!

    I’ll be pairing it with a Jack12, and probably a second one down the road.

    Above is the photo from the listing.
     
  2. Good Luck!

    With it surviving shipping? Yeah it always makes me nervous.. :confused:
     
  4. Cool amp. If it's packed well, no worries. My 400PS was shipped halfway across the country. I shipped a Mesa Tremoverb 2X12 combo from US to Hungary. No problems. If it wasn't packed well..I recall opening a box of broken glass, bent metal, and wooden splinters.

    I got one last year for about the same $ from GC; screamin’ deal for a kick butt amp! Congrats and enjoy! :thumbsup:

    Shear bass bliss. Paired with my upgraded Ampeg V4 cab (with Emenience Basslite s2012s), it is just gorgeous (and LOUD! :D )

    @CTBassGuy that is one gorgeous rig!


    Sadly the V4B is a little wider than the Jack12. So I may end up putting it on its side next to the cab.

    Thanks!

    Not sure how much wider the V4B is than the Jack12, but you might consider building a top baffle for the V4B and Jack12. I saw someone do that for a PF-50T on top of an SVT210AV, and it ended up looking pretty good. They just made a pad with feet for the svt210 and then feet cups to fit the PF-50T.

    End of the day, though, once you play through it, you likely wont care about a little overhang.

    D37E2517-D7F6-4AA1-962E-94586FF9972B. I was considering building a head stand similar to those vintage Vox amp trolleys.

    Which would have an added benefit of isolating the head from vibrations of the cab.

    If it doesn’t fit on a cab, I just stick my old very wide V4B on the floor. It doesn’t bother me having it there, I’m not much of a knob turner. Same goes with the SVT.

  13. 0E078621-A5EE-4684-A2EE-4BEC6CFE8AE1. Love my V4B and matching 212 AV. You’ll be real happy I suspect.

    Mine made it to southern Arizona from Sweetwater in perfect shape. Enjoy!

    Wow, what a looker. I'm currently trying to unload a couple amps to get my hands one one myself.

    Congrats you will be very happy
     
  17. Mine came from CME to Pittsburgh. It'll be fine. Enjoy it. Crank the master and use the gain as volume like the SVT-VR, or crank gain and use master to get the tubey goodness at a reasonable level.
