old ampeg b-50r for $240... i was considering an ashdown eb 15-180 or the hartke A100... but i played this the other day and really dug it... not very loud (though it does have a lineout)... should i keep saving or go for this discotinued beauty?

My opinion? Doesn't matter how good it sounds, if you cant hear it. How many watts is the amp in question? The thing is that is still a good 100 bucks cheaper than an Ashdown EB, and that still wouldn't be that much louder if the Ampeg is around 100 watts. The EB is the same out of the box.

does the Ampeg B-50R have a blue check cover? sounds like a 50w SS, 1x12" combo.
reissued in 1996. they are valued about $275 to $300. as a practice amp it might do fine, but discontinued means, they probably didn't sell very well, as new. the only way to compare amps, is to play them. try finding reviews at harmonycentral.com.

alright... i do see the value... since i do need to be somewhat heard i should aim for at least 100... so is the ashdown 1-180 a wise budget friendly choice? (ill adopt the cab for the extra 80 later on)
