Ampeg Bass Amplifiers Buying Guide

Ampeg Bass Amplifiers Buying Guide

Seen on countless stages worldwide, Ampeg amplifiers have become synonymous with monstrous bass tone. Ampeg has been around since the 1940s, and they've been making significant contributions to music ever since. From the invention of the flip-top B-15s and the development of the extraordinary Super Valve Technology (SVT), all the way to modern offerings such as the SVT Pros and the updated Portaflex series, Ampeg has defined professional bass tone.

There's something incredible that happens when you stand in front of an Ampeg bass rig and experience the sheer amount of air these things can push -- it's a feeling of power that won't be compromised, and it compels you to just keep playing. Whether you need a full-blown 8x10" "refrigerator" cabinet or just a single 1x8" practice amp, Ampeg has you covered with multiple different amp and cabinet configurations to complete any task at hand.

Check out Ampeg's Heritage, Classic, Portaflex, SVT Pro, Bassamp, and Pro Neo series -- and don't forget to turn up the bass.
Ampeg Heritage Series
Designed and assembled in the U.S.A. with the highest-quality materials and hardware, Heritage series amps are built to deliver the iconic Ampeg tone. Meticulous attention to detail and premium build quality establishes the Heritage as Ampeg's top-of-the-line series. Outfit an 8x10" or 4x10" Heritage cab with an SVT-CL head for the thunderous tone that made Ampeg famous.

Looking for an Ampeg guitar amp? We've got you covered, too. The Heritage R-12R is a faithful recreation of the first electric guitar amplifier with on-board reverb. This all-tube combo will satisfy all of your vintage-loving needs.

Ampeg Classic Series
The Classic series is where you'll find Ampeg's iconic SVT amp heads and cabinets -- long known as the standard by which all other bass amps are compared. These powerful, all-tube heads deliver killer low-end thump with a ton of analog warmth to keep the tone sweet. Ampeg's professional-quality Classic series cabs feature speaker configurations from the legendary 8x10" all the way down to 1x12", with many more configurations available in between. For even more versatility, check out the Micro stacks that feature miniature solid-state heads paired up with 2x10" cabs for genuine Ampeg tone in a much smaller package.

Simply unlatch the top and flip it over to store the head inside the cabinet when you are on the move.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
