Ampeg V-4B Head

Bass amplifier / top

The Ampeg V-4B is a reissue of the 100 watt reverb top already introduced in 1971.
In addition to a weight reduction to an easily manageable 18 kg, the 6L6 drivers are one of the most significant changes. The connection options on the rear side are quite extensive. Five output sockets allow the connection of cabinets between 2 and 8 ohms (16 ohms also work, of course, if you put up with the power loss). An effects loop and a balanced output with ground lift switch are technical standard today and are part of the V-4B. The EQing is quite sophisticated. In addition to a traditional 3-band tone control, there are three toggle switches above, reminiscent of a Russian radio, which give the bassist additional options. From a powerful bass boost to the range of the mid control and the ultra-hi rocker, the colleagues can handle every bassistic borderline case.
Only the sound decides in the end whether you like or dislike it, and here Ampeg relies on its traditional skills. The sound is crisp, warm and thanks to the narrow 100 watts for the bass range with a rich saturation. With fingertip feeling all common preferences are served, be it to achieve a funky sound with sensitive midrange scoop, be it a round foundation of classic nuance or to fabricate a hefty rock board. The V-4B combines Ampeg's typical sound with moderate volume and low weight, all at a fair price.
