i have been playing for quite a few years and have tried and played through may amp's , i was really hesitant on getting this as i know the rep on the AMPEG and i like bottom ,mid and smack in your face ,punch to the chest sound and i thought that ampeg had a muddy ,warm, humbuck, no definition ect. sound until...... i was just going to get this play it at a concert test and send back the head , in my last three shows i played this from a fender jazz active to a IBANEZ soundgear 605 hummmm.... now i cant get rid of it and don't want to ,one of the sound engineers front of the house and musicians i play with was like this amp was cutting through and i play with these musicians for years ,i am truly amazed and would love to be a ampeg spokesmen ,i am for real get his head ,versatility ,bottom,mid and spank its all here ,,1 session i was was not playing loud but i had my bottom on 4 ,and watched the 8/10's bust up this top can move some air ,i hear ,and i hear yeah but ,yeah but ,just get it you wont regret it nice investment we will see longevity time will tell .....

compressor is very nice and works
Ease of Use
very easy to dial in i have used this head with ,SWR, AMPEG, EDEN AND IT COMMANDS WHAT IT WANTS ,slight learning as you learn the how to's when you travel from stage to stage pack light ,i just bring my head and my bass they have a speaker on sight the amp brings out the best in the speakers too..
