"Great tone and minimal weight"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this as a birthday gift for my wife, who had an old head and 210 that weighed about a million pounds. She prefers a 115 (has it with another amp) and the tone shaping on this is fantastic! Plus, it's easy for me to get it up and down the basement steps for gigs ... OK, I bought it for ME ...

"Ampeg Portaflex PF800 PF115HE Half Stack"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have always loved the tone of Ampeg systems, and the PF800 / PF115HE Half Stack did not disappoint. Plenty of Options in the Mid-range frequencies allow me to cut out the muddiness and add a little growl, helping my basslines cut through the mix.
Sound
Like I said, Ampeg tone, good mid controls. As shipped it will push 450w. I have ran this Half Stack with an added PF210 to hear it at 800w and it was awesome. Great punch sustained lows. I personally intend to purchase the 210 some. Still, at 450w it has good headroom.
Features
I like that the head Mounts to the lid of the cabinet. The fasteners are well built and sturdy. There is a heavy duty Velcro strap secured to the inside of the cab. It will be strapping down your caster wheels in an Ampeg pouch when you purchase. I have been using the Velcro to strap Down my Jenson DI. It ships with a 16 gauge speaker cable, i suggest replacing it with a 14 gauge speakon cable.
Ease of Use
I dont think I can answer this question. For me, yeah its super easy. But i have good amount of common sense and better amount of knowledge concerning my Gear. If you run a high impedance intrument cable from your amp to your cab instead of a speaker cable, then I cant comment on ease of use.
Quality
So Far, everything is looking secure and sturdy, well built. I have had Ampegs in the past the the knobs and dials start getting loose after a year... we will see.
Value
Oh yeah
Manufacturer Support
Haven't dealt with them, but i have experience with zZounds Support and they have always been supper Helpful.
The Wow Factor
The material the cab is wrapped with has nice pattern to it the way it reflects light. I like the Light on the front of the head. I have had a few people tell me it looks as sharp as it sounds.

"Ampeg Portaflex PF800 PF115HE Half Stack"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Have used this new rig for funk/rock and country/western gigs. The PF115HE sounded great after being broken-in for a few hrs. The bass player in the funk band I play guitar in uses an Ampeg SVT PRO 4 so he was the first to give the head a good test. It passed with flying colors. Second gig was me playing bass in a country/western band. The Portaflex rig performed beautifully with no hiccups with that great Ampeg sound. Well done and I'm a happy camper. I can't comment on customer support as there have been no issues to report.
Musical Background:
Have been playing for 40+years. Mostly guitar but sub on bass as needed. Also vocals, engineering/recording.
Musical Style:
R&B, Funk, Jazz, Country and mostly covers unless playing originals with my funk band.

"Great Bass Amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this amp over a year ago i have gig with it so many times is light and has plenty of power with the 800 watts. My brother gig with it with a band that had 3 guitar players one keyboard Drums and 4 singers and my brother were all the way in the back with a 6 string ibanez and the amp. Everyone was amazed on how you can hear the bass loud clear crisp punchy. This was when i said i made the right choice. Thanks Amoeg for your quality and thanks zZounds for making it possible for me.
