Ampeg has been well-established as a manufacturer of high-quality guitar and bass amplifiers since the early 1960s. Perhaps it’s down to the tube power of the company’s SVT, or maybe it was the instant success of the B-15 ‘flip-top’ bass guitar amp, which was introduced back in 1960.

Whatever the reason, the company’s characteristic all-tube tones have kept it at the top of many bass player’s wish lists, and Ampeg will hope that continues to be the case with its newly announced Venture Series.
