Re: Solid State 2 x 12 Combo Amplifiers

I used to have a tube Ampeg SC160 (not sure if that was the model, but I 
got it in the late 80s) that I loved the tone of.  I did run bass and 
guitar synth stuff through it and it seemed to handle fine.  I miss that 
ol' amp.  The only reason I got rid of it was it was amazingly heavy and 
I got tired of trying to stuff it in the trunk of my Subaru.
