PortaBass (Ampeg)

  1. Man! I went to the local ampeg dealer yesterday. I have some good friends that work there, and I got to play through a PortaBass 250W head and the 2x10 enclosure. Man, that thing would be perfect for shows! Just enough tone controls, and enough volume for stage levels when using a PA

    Try and check it out guys.

    I tried one too. It sounded great. Way louder than I had expected, way better than I had expected.

    Probably not sufficeint volume for my needs, but plenty loud for most small-medium rooms if everyone's playing at decent volume.

    Were I playing often at places needing a small rig, or a pratice/rehearsal amp, I'd seriously consider it. Very easy to transport. The 210 had rollers and a built-in handle, like the carry-on bags the flight attendants use. They did a good job on this rig.
