Ampeg V4B Bass Head

Paul5169, 23.07.2015
My Ampeg V4B Bass Head arrived today. The packaging was damaged in transit which might be expected for a heavy package. The outside box had been opened and there were holes in the second box within but as Thomann pack their stuff in the outside second box luckily nothing was damaged. The Ampeg box has the amp sitting on supports and the chassis has a suspension system also so no valves were damaged. Good packaging therefore.

I took off the grill to check the valves and was disappointed to note quite a lot of sawdust inside. I had seen questionability of quality so this was a point of quality for me. Then again, it's not a Heritage and comes from China. Still £200 cheaper than the UK with the good Euro exchange rate so can't complain.

The grill seems to hold on well although I've seen this questioned for quality. Velcro stoppers essentially.

A further question mark on utube is the loudness fan but mine is fine. I'm in a 10 ft by 10ft box room and I can't hear it at all.

It gives off quite a lot of heat so no room heating needed for the winter. After using it for an hour I noticed that the metal front and the input cable end were quite warm. To be expected.

One thing to note is the power switch. Unlike the UK, power is with the switch flicked up instead of down. This is normal for American amps apparently. It is not a quality issue.

It came with the ssnake Powercord UK C14 and I had ordered another so a point to watch. It is quite short as well if you've got 2 large cabs on top of each other so I had to swop it out for a larger cable.

The sound is awesome. very warm at 12 O'Clock with the ultra lo bass switch on but the top end is very clear also. I've been playing disco octaves with some slap and pop to Abba's Gimme Gimme... the notes on the G string are very clear with warm low end on the E. Very very clear slap and pop even with the mids at 12 o'clock so should be even better scooped.

I was advised against the amp as being too powerful for bedroom use. I've got the gain at 9 and the master at 12 and it is fine with lots of headroom.

Love it's sound. Very good value for money IMHO.

Astride! \ M /

Michael059, 15.03.2017
+ Everything
- Nothing

Seriously; The amp itself is practically free of noise and hum, even with the gain and the master turned up. Hum I have very little by a power supply from another device, if it hangs on the same distributor. Has nothing to do with the amp, but as a tip - when something buzzing, take other devices from the network and make up, who is the Störenfried. The V-4B should not be.

The EQ is correct; Which makes it possible to trim the sound properly, from vintage to brutal to modern when you need it. The amp can - is in my opinion rather the question, whether the boxes fit the desired sound.

I use the V-4B with my '77 rickenbacker in a Hard / PunkRock band with loud drummer. With 2x 210AV the amp is loud enough. Hard to believe. The basses do not boom, there is no mud but rich bass - with taut gain, well remembered. For loud clean bass make 4x 210AV (or other boxes) rather sense.

Our neighbor has tried the amp with his MusicMan Stingray - sounded also first cream; The amp makes a good all-rounder impression.

Tip: I control the bass, activate Ultra-low; So the rattle of my Ric slides to "front", Ultra-low rounds off the bass. The downsizing of the bass fits me sound, because otherwise it really gets too much. The amp makes a lot of steam in connection with the small but fine 210AV. Sounds very strong in the direction of an (old) 810er Flatback or the new 810er Heritage - but not in the direction of a 410HLF (more Woof) or a PN-115 ("modern").

Back to the Amp: On all these other speakers the amp also made a great impression; They did not match the sound conceptually, but they did not lack the amps.

Conclusion: Super Allrounder, thanks to gripping EQ. With the matching boxes he has more than enough steam. And in comparison to the transistor counterpart, the tube sound is indeed an experience. Taste, but for me exactly what I had longed for: D
