Hey guys and gals, I did a search but i couldn't find quite what i was looking for. Anywho, Its time for a different amp and i saw what i think is a good deal on CL. Ampeg portaflex 500 and an ampeg 410 for $425 and they appeared to be in good condition. Im not so worried about the 410 but Ive never really had any experience with the head. ive heard a couple stories of them dying in the middle of shows and stuff like that, but i also heard some people claim that its a workhorse. So my questions are for those of you who own (or owned) this head , why was it or was it not a workhorse? what are the pros and cons? if you were me, would you snag this deal up? Thank you in advance for any feedback and as always guys please no fighting, bickering or anything of the like. we can all get along here.
