Ampeg Introduces PF-800 Bass Amp

Ampeg PF-800 Bass Amp

Ampeg has expanded their Portaflex Series with the PF-800. At 800-watts the bass head is the strongest in the line while only weighing 11.8 pounds. Similar to the rest of the line, its compact design allows it to be stowed inside the Portaflex PF flip-top cabinets.

Features on the new amp include classic hi/lo boosts, a 3-band EQ with a 5-position midrange control, and an onboard compressor. The amp is also well equipped for connectivity with a balanced direct out with pre and post EQ, an FX loop with a dedicated mix control, a 1/8˝ headphone out, and a 1/8˝ line input.

Ampeg says the PF-800 will be shipping as early as February with a street price of around $599. For more, check out the Ampeg website.
