I just tried out a mini-stack of the new mini-Ampegs. They seem like they're supposed to be in the same market as Mesa Boogie Walkabouts or Clarus heads. . . super-light weight for small gigs, and definitely in the pro- or semi-pro price range. However, from what I heard, they're not even close. Either the head or the cab (a vertical 2x10", I think) or both gave the stack an incredibly muddy sound. With a Roscoe and a Pulcinella Level 5, the sound was a horror -- mud, mud, mud. The only bass that sounded good thru this rig was a Spector Czech 4-string, I suppose because the Czech Spectors are so bright and clean. So maybe a Zon or Modulus would work too. . . However, with non-EMG, soapbar-equipped basses, I found the sound to be totally unusable. Other opinions?
