I'm saying. I have 3 Ampeg 810s and one of them is a 2013 Heritage. I paid $500 or less for each one of them. I have 2 SVTs. My A rig is a 2 non pro with my "Eat $h17" cab ( '96 "Dark era"). Yeah it's heavy, but sooooooo worth it. I have never played a more dynamic, bad ass sounding amp in my life. The V4B is a great amp. And the 2x12 isn't really the matching cab ( unless it's a reissue V4B or something.) Your bass player will love it. Pros: Sounds F'ing amazing Lighter than an SVT Less tubes, therefore less maintenance than an SVT ( although you still want to take it to a tech every so often for service. Think of it as insurance) Sounds F'ing amazing Sounds F'ing amazing Cons: It's 100 watts and will likely not be loud enough on it's own, without PA support, with a loud band. Especially if the drums are miked and especially with a 2/12 cab. If you normally have PA support, you're set.
