Good Practice/Backup Head
Acquired in December '09 as backup to a '73 V4-B (100W tube), and for practice. Played through either an SVT 8x10 (800W @ 4 ohms; gigs), or a ported Crate 2x15 (300W @ 8 ohms; practice), it has a good general tone palette, and will produce substantial volume and bottom end. WILL cut out when pushed hard, but the clip button mitigates. Mute switch is useful. So light, it will dance off the cab unless secured somehow. Front dials will not hold position in transit . Fits in a laptop computer bag, w/all cables & footswitch. In no way does this head compare to the aforementioned all-tube 100W V4-B for sheer rock 'n roll grunt, but I'd be comfortable to finish out a gig with it, should the Ampeg crap out some day.
