This rig combines the Ampeg Portaflex PF800 Head with a PF115HE Cab Bass Amplifier Stack. It was designed by Ampeg to be supremely portable, while delivering a powerful and extremely responsive bass tone with a lot of room-shaking power. Best of all, the PF800 Portaflex head can be secured to the removable top of the PF-115HE Bass cabinet and flips inside the cab for transport.
Clear Tone at Any Volume
The PF800 Portaflex amplifier is a Class D design, specially engineered by Ampeg to deliver an impressive power rating with a minimum of heat gain. Some bass amps circuitry can lose tonal definition when you push the signal on the circuit too far -- especially on systems that cannot offset their heat gain. The PF800 Portaflex head maintains its tonal consistency all the way up to its highest output.
Excellent Tone Controls
The front panel of the PF800 has numerous useful features that help you craft your sound both in the studio and in live situations. There is a 3-band Bass/Mid/Treble tone and a 5-position mid-tone control. The onboard compressor allows you to keep a ceiling on your output. Ultra Hi/Lo switch gives you a boost when you need it. And a Ground Lift switch helps you eliminate ground loop issues whenever they may arise.
The PF800 Portaflex head has a single balanced direct out. This output can run either Pre- or Post-EQ from the settings on the front panel. There is a -40 dB pad for pulling back on volume output quickly, and a FX loop with dedicated mix control that is handily foot switchable! There is single line-in for Power Amp inputs, and also a Line Out for running to a preamp. A 1/8-inch headphone jack allows you to practice at night. The single input comes with a -15 dB pad.
A Super-Easy Amp to Transport
The PF800 Portaflex head is an 800 watt Class D bass amp that weighs than 12 pounds! If you're going to be taking a bass rig with you on the road, you should seriously be considering this amp.
