This amp is basically the equivalent of a Fender Pro Reverb. It is a 40 watt 2x12 (with original, perfect shape and sweet sounding Jensens); has reverb and tremolo AND true pitch-shift vibrato as well. Tonez for daze. The reverb is less splashy than a Fender reverb- has it's own unique tone, one that I actually prefer. The thing about Ampegs is the low-mid thump. This amp sounds amazing when pushed and is a tone monster for cleans too.
It has been played regularly and has been taken care of extremely well. No major tears in the tolex (all original). I have a custom cover for it and also the neat thing about these is they have a connection piece built in to the cabinet that lets you attach a cart- which also comes with the amp.
I've had this amp as my #1 for six years and it has never let me down. I'm pretty set on the price, because these are rare- especially the ones made in Linden, NJ- and I have the case and cart with it as well. However, I'm always up for listening to offers within reason.
If you love Ampegs- V2, V4, V22, etc- but don't want the weight of those...this might be your amp. This amp is still heavier, but not V22 heavy!
A couple things you should note: if the echo is turned on all the way (which is a LOT of reverb) it will self-oscillate. This is what these do- it's just how it's designed. Also, the trem/vibrato will "tic" if it's under 10 o'clock on the intensity. Again- this is just the design. I've had a tech who specializes in Vintage ampegs keeping her running. These idiosyncrasies are part of the experience, they won't even be noticed if you don't go to the extreme parameters (all on with reverb, barely on for trem). Just want to be fully disclosing the eccentricities, for those who haven't played around with this era of Ampeg.
If you love Fender Combos- try this bad boy out, you might be surprised. Rad for the offset lovers- Jags and Jazzmasters sound killer through this, especially with the reverb. Cheers.
