Fender Bassman 500 / Ampeg SVT-212AV. A great bass setup.

The Bassman 500 runs great through Ampeg. The 2X12 setup has a better low end, and is a 4 ohm, 600 watt cab.

I thought this setup sounded good before, but now with playing my SG Std. through it, it really has a sound that doesn't quit.

The SG Std. did ok with a Fender Bassman 500, but not as good as with the Ampeg V-4B. It's tough to beat a tube bass head.

All I got is an Acoustic 100 watt Solid State B100. Would love a nice Ampeg all tube rig.

I know what your saying. In 49 Years of playing the bass, this is my first Ampeg tube head I've ever had. I've had a Traynor head in 1969-1970. A couple of Fender Bassman heads along the way. But this V-4B Ampeg kicks the rest for overall tone quality. A good friend of mine in about 1970, had an Acoustic 360/361. That was a Monster on stage, or in the studio. How are you using your Acoustic B100 ?

That Ampeg looks sweet. I would like to get an Ampeg tube head someday. Right now I have an Ampeg PF-800 head and a PF-115HE cab that I've been happy with. I can only imagine how much better that tube head sounds.

The Ampeg tube heads are for real old school 60's Hard, and Heavy, ROCK & ROLL!

That's of course your call, but I've had them, and dropped them for the Ampeg Tube Head.

It really is a monster of a head for 100 watts. The tube head has more power output than a 100 watt SS.

The SG Std. with the Ampeg half stack. This Ampeg has the sound I've been looking for to match up with the SG Std. The Ampeg V-4B / SVT-212AV.

Beautiful pic.
Loving Music, listening to a very nice 2 channel system. I try to play along.

I also love racing, especially motorcycles.

650cc on the track
800cc on the snow
1000cc on the street

More guitar than talent.

I'm still in awe with the sounds of the SG Std., and the Ampeg half stack. Is anyone else using an Ampeg with a Gibson bass?
