All-New Ampeg V-4B 100W All-Tube Bass Head and New SVT CabsWe constantly look to you, the die-hard Ampeg user, for new product ideas. After all, you are the ones playing Ampeg each and every day. So, we locked away our budget analysts and sent our marketing team off on a snipe hunt and starting talking with you directly. After tons of interaction with you on our Facebook page and forums like Talkbass, it was clear. The new product you wanted was, in fact, an old product. But, it was certainly one worth bringing back.
