Comments about Ampeg PF-50T Portaflex 50W Tube Bass Amp Head:
I ordered a PF 50T to replace my '90s solid state Ampeg Rocket Bass 100R. The difference is astounding! Even at 50 watts, the PF 50T is louder than the 100 watt Rocket, plus, with 2 modern outs, you can send a clean signal to a board. Days after receiving the PF I used it at a small-medium size club gig. The sound guy said it was the best sounding bass amp he'd ever heard! To me, it sounds like a blend between an SVT & the vintage flip tops from the 60s. With the gain up, you can get warm overdriven tones, without the harshness of most pedals. My opinion, but I think it sounds best when leaving the ultra low & high out, and using the low, mid, high knobs to dial in your desired tone. If you are after a more modern/slap tone, the ultra high works nicely, but I prefer that good ol' "round sound" Ampeg is known for. Paired with a 115 HE, the PF 50T sounds huge, warm, and provides a satisfying rumble. Plus, it looks and sounds like the classic, without the drawbacks of weight, low volume, and limited tone options. The head & 115 cab have a combined weight of just over 60 lbs, which isn't so bad on the back. Casters & a quality speaker cable are provided with the cab, and can be stored, along with small gear, in the cab itself. Overall, I am VERY satisfied with this Ampeg product & would recommend it to bassists who prefer a more vintage look & tone.
