Overall Rating:
Overall I love this amp. You can not go wrong with Ampeg. This amp has great tone and plenty of power. And in this price range this amp can't be beat. I would absolutely get this amp again if something happened to it.
Features:
The controls are mute and -15db buttons, compressor, gain, ultra hi and low buttons, EQ bass, middle, 5 position mid-range selector switch, treble, FX mix and volume knobs. Everything is straight forward and easy to use but I would have liked to just have a low mid and hi mid knobs instead of the mid-range frequency switch. At 300w at 8ohms and 500w at 4 ohms this has plenty of power for most any gig.
Sound Quality:
You are not going to find an amp with much better sound in a solid state amp. All that great Ampeg tone is there with this amp.
Ease of Use:
Ease of use is no problem with this amp. You can easily dial in the tone your looking for no matter what type of music you play.
Durability:
So far it seems durable enough.
