WOODINVILLE, WA, USA – September 17, 2015... Ampeg today introduces two new compact all-tube heads and a new cabinet to its top-selling Portaflex Series.

“Ampeg’s rich history with all-tube amplification is second to none, with models like the B-15 that remain the gold standard for professionals worldwide,” remarks Ampeg Product Manager, Zane Williams. “With these two new all-tube models in the Portaflex lineup, we’re not only offering players the very best in all-tube tone, we’re making it more attainable than ever since they are the most affordable all-tube Ampeg heads ever created.”

Designed to be compact and match perfectly with existing Portaflex cabinets, the new PF-20T (20W) and PF-50T (50W) are modern interpretations of Ampeg’s legendary low-wattage, all-tube designs. Both deliver a wide range of classic Ampeg tones, from warm and clean to the over-the-top saturation that only all-tube designs can deliver. Both heads are also great for recording in a quiet environment like a studio, as they can be run without a speaker load. While both new heads are compatible with any Ampeg Portaflex cabinet, they are compact enough to use the “flip-top” design of the PF-115HE and PF-210HE, creating a compact all-tube rig that travels very well.

Also joining the Portaflex lineup is the new PF-112HLF cabinet, a 1x12” design featuring a selectable high-frequency driver and porting for added low-frequency extension. It joins four other cabinet models in the series, offering flexibility to build a Portaflex rig to fit any player’s application.

“The incredible versatility of these heads make them more than just a great entry into Ampeg tube tone, but also an amazing tool in the studio or on the stage for bass players at any level,” concludes Williams.

The Ampeg Portaflex Series also includes the high-output Class-D PF-350, PF-500 and PF-800 bass heads and the PF-115HE, PF-210HE, PF-115LF and PF-410HLF bass enclosures.

The Ampeg Portaflex PF-20T, PF-50T and PF-112HLF are now shipping worldwide. The heads and cabinet are sold separately: PF-20T (U.S. MSRP $839.99), PF-50T (U.S. MSRP $1259.99) and PF-112HLF (U.S. MSRP $519.99). Visit www.ampeg.com to learn more about the new Portaflex heads and cabinet.

Rex Brown Delivers the Bottom Line with Ampeg

Taos, NM—December 2017… When most rock fans think of hard-rocking bass player Rex Brown, they undoubtedly think first of his more than 20 years with groove/thrash metal pioneers Pantera. Multiple Grammy nominations and platinum-selling records will do that. Post-Pantera, however, Brown has kept the music flowing, going on to play for a dozen years in Down, cofounding Kill Devil Hill, and performing on a variety of other projects. Recently, he released his debut solo album, Smoke on This, on which he plays bass and rhythm guitar and, for the first time, handles lead vocals. From Pantera through his new solo project, Ampeg bass amps have been a key part of Brown’s powerful sound.
