Achieve a richer and more textured sound than the Ampeg SVT
During a time when P.A. systems were often inadequate, Ampeg's 300-watt SVT amp head stood out for its ability to deliver powerful low-end in large arenas. While the 100-watt Ampeg V-4B provided less wattage than its bigger brother, it had a unique appeal. The V-4B's power amp, easier to drive into breakup than the SVT offered a richer, more textured tone. This made it the preferred choice of many renowned bass players familiar with both models.
Use a built-in three-band EQ to create thick tube tones
The V4-B has a simple EQ section that effortlessly delivers thick tube tones from the moment you plug in. Featuring a three-band EQ with switchable mids and ultra-low and high switches, it allows you to quickly dial in a vast range of tones, from boomy and beefy to honky and gritty. With separate gain and master controls, plus a Power Soak option, it offers all the character expected from Ampeg.
