AFAIK they are made by Crate, for Guitar Center which is St. Louis Music Inc. same as Ampeg.
I agree with the guy at the end of the clip they really do sound a lot better in person. I was in a GC to get a amp box for shipping and saw an old Ampeg in one of the amp rooms and walked in as a guy was hooking up a Tele into the smallest Palomino...I was stunned by the tone.

Are the palomino amps discontinued? I cant find "palomino" or V32/V16/V8 on the Crate website.

The old Vintage Club series amps had a lot of heat realted failure issues. I liked the sound of those amps too, but they were pretty flimsy.

I have 2 of them-VC50H 50 watt heads. I picked them up for 179$ a piece. Talk about "Bang for the Buck!" I wired in a fan on one of them with an external switch. Put a piece of clear plexiglass in the front of one in place of the grill. Very cool as you can see the entire amp now from the front.At any rate if Im pushing it hard I turn on the fan. For bedroom levels its not necessary. They sound great thru a 2x12 V-30/G12H-30 cab. If you can get past the "stigma" of a 90's Crate I highly recommend them.
