Nice sound. Nothing special with respect to features. I've owned if 5 weeks and twice in for repair. Frequently goes into fault. Not worth the price, seems like Ampeg relying on rep.

Very easy to dial in a warm tube tone, with similarities to the classic B15 grind and heavy V4B low end. Almost a breed between the two, with added modern day comforts. Light weight durable design. No speaker load required, makes it ideal for recording. The switchable ohm(4/8) gives you some versatility between what cabinet you want to pair it with. I prefer it with a 810e so the sound is a little more accessible to the viewer with out damaging ear drums. The 115he too which works great for a portable practice/guitar amp. 50T covers the whole spectrum of the gigging/recording musician. Cheap price. Light weight. I foresee my self holding onto this one for a long time to come. Great service from L&M, thanks!
