caplejul's review - Ampeg B2

I can not dwell on its technical characteristics, I use this amp in rehearsal studio, so in rooms equipped, the amplifier in this case is not for me.
That is an opinion especially since the amp is not mine and therefore serves several bass players of different styles. I should point out that these are weaknesses that I noticed on ALL B2 studio.


The config is actually very simple: a 9-band EQ section and three rotary bass, mid, high. Gain entry, a master limiter.

Perso, I can not really have good sound with. The tolerance level of input is really feeble.


I play funk, with a Jazz Bass Mex Std.
I think this amp is not bad for reggae, but if you want accurate sound, rich bass harmony, then go your way.

I do not like the sound it has, I'm really bothered by the low level acceptable to the preamp.
For a varied style of play in terms of dynamics is not manageable. We feel any energy in this amp.


It's been a year and a half I'm going in the studio. What is clear is that when I come across a room equipped with B2, I run a search for a SWR or Trace 7210 ....
