Today I went to my local music shop and tried out a bunch of combos and small amps, looking for one with a little more kick and versatility than my ole Peavey Basic 112. My main gig rig is a 2017 Ampeg V-4B with AV212 cab. Today I tried out an Ampeg Micro CL stack, BA-112, BA-115, Fender Rumble 200 and an Orange crush 50. I gotta say I was unimpressed with just about all of them. I’m not sure what is going on with the new combos today but compared to the old school class A combos and amps they all had a weird little delay in the sound. The fender wasn’t quite as bad but it was still there a hair. The Ampeg’s BA models especially showed the delay when the scrambler was on. The Micro CL didn’t have it too bad but just enough and I really dig the mini 210 vertical cabinet tone but I’d like to try the Micro VR stack before I write that off as a possible choice. The Orange surprisingly didn’t have any delay but it didn’t sound too much like a bass amp either. And the gain section’s a straight up big muff. Is this “delay” something class D amps do or is it have something to do with the DSP’s built in these new amps? Does the Micro VR have this sound as well? Like i said the old peaveys and fenders I’ve owned from the 90s and early 2000s never seemed to have this. Kinda makes me wanna keep saving and get a PF-50T for a small rig.
