New from Ampeg is the B500DR, a programmable bass amp that showcases brand new technology just developed by Ampeg engineers.
The B500DR stores (4) different EQ and channel settings that can easily be accessed through the included four-button footswitch. These settings can be saved and recalled for use in different venues, different songs, or even for different basses.
The B500DR features marquis lights that show levels, 4 presets, and 2 input jacks for two different instruments. This new amp is perfect for the active bassist that plays a variety of instruments and styles of music.
The B500DR also features 3-band EQ with bass, mid and treble; padded input gain with ultra low and ultra high selectable, an FX loop, and 375 watts at4 OHMS or 500 watts at 2 OHMS.
Ampeg is offering a 60-second tutorial for the B500DR on their web site.
