Ampeg Venture V3 Bass Guitar Amplifier Head (300 Watts)

Dial in classic Ampeg tones with the most portable Venture bass head! Ampeg's V3 Venture bass amp boasts 300 watts in a head that will fit in a gig bag.

The ultra-portable Venture V3 is the smallest and lightest of the three heads in the Venture Series and easily fits into a gig bag, a laptop bag, or the optional Venture carrying bag, making it an ideal head for the traveling bassist. The Venture V3 delivers 300 watts via its Class D power section -- more than enough power to drive any of the Venture Series speaker cabinets or practically any other cab bassists may encounter on their travels.

Featuring easy-to-use and intuitive controls, the Venture V3 offers an extensive array of tone-shaping tools that include a legacy preamp, 3-band EQ with sweepable Mids, Ultra Hi and 3-way Ultra Lo switches, and a Super Grit Technology(TM) (SGT(TM)) Overdrive circuit with SVT(R) and B15 voicings. An effects loop, an XLR direct output, an Aux input, and a Phones output enhance connectivity, as does the Neutrik(R) speakON(R) 1/4" combo output. All circuitry is analog except for the solid-state Class D amplifier. Add an optional AFS2 footswitch for remote control of the SGT overdrive and other functions, and an optional heavy-duty padded Venture carrying bag to protect your Venture V3.

The Ampeg Venture Series amplifiers and cabinets deliver the modern style and features sought by contemporary bassists -- continuing a tradition of innovation that stretches back to the dawn of the electric bass.

I got the V3 because I have RB210 that has the SGT switch and I really like my RB210. I played a gig in a VIP tent at the NHRA drag races in Holly Springs Mississippi with no PA support for amplifiers, and cars racing 50 feet behind the stage. This V3 through my 410HLF Heritage was awesome. Very impressive for D class 300 watts. Not tubes but kinda close
