Ampeg V4BH Classic Series – 2007 Made in USA – SUPER CLEAN All Tube Bass Amplifier

Up for sale, an incredible and rare to find nowadays US made SLM era Ampeg V4BH Bass amp. One of the last manufactured in 2007 (Made in the USA) by SLM electronics. Beside the tubes, 100% all original.

This is one of the last model version  after Ampeg stopped most of their production in the USA and transitioning to the Loud Technologies moving all production line to Asia, , then this model was discontinued. This is exactly the same amp that the previous mid ’90s models with the red and the blue graphics, labeled as V-4B Classic Series (These would say also V4BH on the sticker on the back).

Think of an SVT Classic but smaller (it weights a HALF of an SVT!). It sounds and looks beautiful,  It combines the sound legacy of the older 70’s V4B (Not the newer Chinese reissue) but with the flexibility and reliability of the Ampeg SLM era amps. These V4BH came either with 5881 o 6L6GC tubes, and this one particularly came with 6L6GC (JJ’s recently installed).

To me, there’re four reason why it beats an SVT: First, you can crank it at lower volumes (at  realistic situations such as recordings and small venues), with still 100Watts RMS of pure tube sounding. Second, it works with 4 and 8 ohms cabinets (this is a huge plus, meaning you can use a single 1×15″/2×10″ or 4×10″ at 8 Ohms). You can still hook it up to an 8×10″ or SVT-410HLF at 4 ohms but it’s not mandatory like on the SVT. Third, it’s QUIET. Unlike the SVT, there’s no fan on the V4BH so definitely quiet for recording situations. Fourth and last, It weights HALF of an SVT, therefore much easier to carry around.

– 100 Watts RMS ALL TUBE
– Power Tubes: 6L6GC (JJ’s x4)
– Preamp Tubes: 12AX7 (x2) + Driver Tubes: 12AU7 (x2)
– Input 0dB/-15dB.

– XLR Balanced Output.
– Preamp Out / Power Amp Input / Slave Output.

The amp is Super Clean really, it’s in excellent condition with very minimal signs of wear considering its age, although the amp is in great shape and the black tolex and the front grille are in excellent condition.

It’s been just serviced and retubed. It sounds awesome and super clean. The Tubes will be securely removed and wrapped for Shipping, don’t worry i know how to do it and feel free to check my reviews about shipping these amps.

As you can imagine, Local pickup in LA is much preferred. Although i can ship it out to Continental US as an option, but you got to understand that shipping this baby boy has a cost (It’s more than the courier, it requires the proper double box, padding and insurance. Please check our reputation and how buyers speak well about our packing and shipping techniques).
