Like most bassists I’ve always wanted the holy grail of bass amps, the Ampeg B15. But being too financially embarrassed and sensible enough not to buy one, I’ve hankered after the poor mans substitute the Ampeg B100r or B200r instead. I’ve looked around for quite a while now. After about 6 months I’ve been super lucky to pick up an American made B200r in near mint condition. Got it for a relative steal. Found it on FB marketplace.

Super happy boy today!!

Lovely!

If the B100r was still around, I would have one without a doubt. Years ago, I remember having a magazine which had reviews of both the B100r and the Sting Precision Bass. I was instantly smitten (apart from that fretboard inlay!), but couldn't have afforded either, let alone both, at the time.

Just cranked it up (with neighbours blessing). Really loud, great tone and no rattles (apart from everything else in the room!). #win

It really is a looker and as I love the sound from my VTDI, I’m sure it sounds great too. If I was looking to change my rig (I’m not, I’m not, I’m not!) one of these would surely be in the frame.
