  • NAD! Vintage Ampeg content!

    I've been lusting after a V-series Ampeg for months. Finally a deal came up that I couldn't refuse. Picked it up tonight: Mid-'70s VT-40 for $300. I am already in love.

    That's a heck of a lot of amp for only $300 - congrats!

      Thanks, Phil. I can't wait to try it in the full band context.


      Thanks also for your Catalinbread recommendation a couple months ago. I almost went in that direction.

        Thanks guys. Yeah, Tom, it's the 4x10 combo. I see VT-22's or V-4's a lot more on craiglist than these guys. But I could never justify 120 watts. Hell, even 60 watts is kind of ludicrous.

      Hell yes it does. Makes my Super Reverb feel like a bag of pillows.

        lol


         


        As a former Fender Super Six Reverb owner who used to gig with that AND a Mesa Boogie 1x12 combo amp, I am immune to feeling sorry for you over protestations regarding amp weight!

        PS I eventually got smart and switched to much smaller / lighter amps. Well, at least smaller. My Princeton Reverb II has a EVM and some beefy iron in it - it weighs nearly as much as a Mk I Boogie does. But nothing like that Super Six. That thing was a tank. And I didn't have wheels for it either... I carried it 5 miles to and from gigs, uphill both ways, through 2 feet of snow and under a 105 degree sun...

        Well I've been gigging with the far more modest DRRI. But Phil, your ill-advised feats of strength give me hope. Bob Seger should write a ballad about that.
