Ampeg B200R

Does anyone have any "first hand" experience with ampeg's b200r(1-15"/220w/tube preamp)?

I've owned the b100r(1-15"/100w), and it kicked ass (sounded great/solid) for a $650 combo. All i had to do for larger venues was mic it , which is what i do anyway. This last year I've had to sell ALOT of equipment dear to me to get by. Now, I'm looking to get back into the groove (so to speak) again and rebuild.

I really need the boost.

If you liked the b100r then you will also love the b200r, however I found that at higher volumes it was too muddy. I would suggest that at higher wattages you go with a 210 model. Do you make a 210 tube one yet?

best of luck, jonathan

Thanks...I was thinking that 220 watts was alot for (1) 15" speaker combo. Am I thinking correctly?

In my past experience, wattage didn't play as important a role as the construction and components at a given volume. Even my 4-12"/900w cabinet would fall on its face when cranked past 1/2 way(Ampeg B2R powered), besides blowing out everyone's eardrums. What I liked about the B100R was it's portability.

I do wish I had the "bucks" for a SVT classic head and 6 or 8x10 cab.

Man...where does all the money go that I used to have?
