"More Bang For Your Buck!!!"
I love it. Would not trade for anything elce even a SVT 4 Pro. Oh by the way I used someone's SVT 4 pro last week at a big outside gig. And I could not tell the difference in sound between the B4R and 4 pro. In fact I liked mine a little better to tell you the truth. Do yourself a favor and save the extra cash and go with the B4R. The tube preamp on the 4 pro did not make any difference in tone when cranked up at a gig.
Sound
Ampeg tone to the max when paired with SVT 810E.
