Hear the Versatile Tones of the New All-Tube Portaflex Heads

Press Release – Portaflex Sound Clips – Hear the Versatile Tones of the New All-Tube Portaflex Heads…

PF-20T and PF-50T Videos Now Available

There’s no real substitute for playing a head before you buy it. What does it really sound like?

It can also be hard to get out to a store. So, we’ve recorded some great sound clip videos to give you a sense of what the new PF-20T and PF-50T All-Tube Bass Heads sound like.

We’ve broken the videos out into tones that highlight specific styles or flavors – Fingerstyle, Slap Style, Motown and Overdrive w/pick.

Both of these amazing all-tube bass heads feature three different ways to output your sound. Of course, you can out to a cabinet. So… we connected a PF-112HLF and recorded that sound.

You also have the choice of a preamp out. We recorded that also (post-EQ).

And, lastly, you have something really special – a transformer balanced line out. This sends basically the same signal your cabinet gets. It’s great for ensuring that front of house gets every drop of your signature tone. So, we recorded that.

Check out all 8 sound clip videos.

    Can I plug the Portaflex into my Ampeg combo amp?

    It is -so- lame that they couldn’t put the transformers in cans. Even fake ones. Anything.

    Regarding plugging one into your combo amp, there isn’t a proper output from the tube heads to go into another amplifier. Your best bet would be to use the tube head with a standard bass cabinet.
