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.
