Attention Protective circuit

Stachel, 12.07.2013
So much has been said about the part. Super sound, neat steam on light weight, etc.
The problem with the too loud fan, which was often reported: I would guess that Ampeg solved this. If my laptop is next to it, I can rather hear the rotating disk than the fan of the Ampeg. Of course, the now is still new and undamaged. Nevertheless, I wanted to communicate this info.
In addition, I was often asked, if one with such a small top, even a full stacks be firing:

1. Why should not you?

2. I was able to play over the equipment of another band: Warwick Fullstack: 4 * 10 "+ 1 * 15". Top drauf and go it goes without any problems. I just had to go back and correct the volume down.

I hope I could solve some doubts. So for the price definitely worth a test

Correction after about 3 weeks: now is synonymous with me the fan noise immediately when you switch on. It does not really bother me now, but for recordings with box and everything would probably be really disturbing (I always take over DI)

More information after 1.5 years: The top is still fun. You can always read that the amp also goes out at high load times. This really happened to me a few weeks ago. In a tiny club with a felt 40 degrees and consequently high humidity, I played over a 1x15 "box, if I had known that I had to use the whole shop, I would have taken more. !) And then suddenly did not want to release a sound (Fault lamp). Short switching off again and again brought him to sing again, however, I imagine that he was not in the output that evening So, do not drive forever, if you're not sure the amp will get the heat generated!

And another update oh 2 years: The part has reopened me with an open air. After about 1.5 hours, in which I drove the amp under good load, he has two times the protection circuit came (Master turn up still has changed a lot at the volume, as info for the right technics). Short reboots led to the fact that I could continue to play, but I had to throttle him then something. I've played over 2 Markbass boxes, so could get the whole 500 watts. Unfortunately, I must now say that this shortcoming is not clear. Accordingly, I can unfortunately no purchase recommendation.

Practical but with restrictions

Kai302, 22.07.2012
Lightweight, compact and relatively good sound, but if you do not have a high noise level and a light hum, you would not be able to hear it. This can make other manufacturers much better for equal money. Sound diversity is already impressive, but a slightly tweaked sound here never sounds as nice, as with real tube stage. The fan is loud as a border value (can other manufacturers also better).
