When they were still SLM, they ri'd the V-4B. I've never seen a schematic, so I have no idea about the tube choices. As I pointed out above, the 6K11 and 12dw7 are combinations of 12ax7 and 12au7 tubes, so a clone is viable. I would drop the reverb and one channel for a straight forward VTMB with the Midrange selector and a bright switch. The input sensitivity is simple, but I'm not sure it's useful.That would be cool, only problem is they would be fairly pricey. I wonder why Ampeg hasn't reissued them? Probably not enough if a market.
I was looking at a used one and it just looked like a rat's nest. That and the odd-ball tubes scare me away from buying a 30 year old one. But the tone of them is amazing. If someone would make a hand wired version of them it'd be one of the best clean amps in existence...
Man, I dont get it with the ampeg Love. I played a V4 for years and HATED it. Nasal clothspin on your nose tones all over the place. My buddy had one too, and when we got together, it sounded like 2 guys with horrible colds. Always had to have a few boxes of Kleenex and some nasal spray around.
I believe it is not. HAD isn't known to use a Baxandall tone stack or 12au7s. You'd have to ask Brandon to be sure, I suppose.anyone know if the steel string singer is based on the V4?
