The Ampeg V-4B is a remarkable reissue of legendary V-4B 100W All-Tube Bass Head
The Ampeg V-4B 100W All-Tube Bass Head embodies the legendary tone of the classic V-4B in a portable, modern design perfect for today’s players. From the unique chassis suspension system to the vintage rocker switches, the attention to detail is all there. Plus, with a careful selection of modern features like an integrated DI and a wide choice of speaker output options, Ampeg has ensured the flexibility and functionality you demand from a modern head. With the 100W V-4B, you get the sought-after tone of a fully-cranked Ampeg tube amp in a design that’s less than half the weight of an SVT.
The original earned a place in bass history, delivering pure all-tube tone and an unmistakable grind that is truly one-of-a-kind. The all-new V-4B head embodies this legendary tone in a stage-worthy package that is unquestionably V-4B. While the new V-4B is sure to appeal to fans of the classic original, it is also ideal for bassists who crave the tone of the Ampeg SVT head, but don’t need that level of power or who want a more portable option.
The Ampeg V-4B design process involved sampling a wide range of vintage V-4B heads for reference with a goal of achieving preamp and power section circuits and overall tone that are undeniably V-4B. However, by using a modern-day analog approach, there is an increase in both reliability and serviceability. A focused addition of modern features includes an integrated DI with ground lift, a -15dB input for active basses and a range of speaker outputs at different impedances. Maintaining the tone and integrity of the classic V-4B was the primary design goal, but the addition of these features adds flexibility and functionality perfect for today’s players.
The Ampeg V-4B is the same width as the SVT-CL and SVT-VR heads and fits securely onto any Classic Series Ampeg cabinet including the all-new SVT-112AV and SVT-212AV.
