Sporting the time-tested 4 x 10-inch configuration cherished by generations of bassists, the Acoustic B410C Bass Cabinet handles 400 Watts through four custom-designed traditional ferrite speakers, delivering the coveted warm, smooth sound with just the right combination of low-end punch and midrange definition. Combined with a defeat-able high-frequency horn driver, the B410C translates your tone across the entire bass spectrum with articulation and authority. Its 8-Ohm impedance rating and parallel 1/4-inch inputs make it easy to run multiple cabinets from a single amp head for a wide range of configurations.

The B410C features a rugged, tour-tough, multi-layer plywood cabinet designed to deliver powerful, solid tone and performance while reducing weight and bulk. The cabinet is equipped with heavy-duty spring-loaded side handles and castor-ready sockets for easy transport.

Ampeg Delivers Perfect Tone for Chesney Bassist Harmoni Kelley

San Diego, CA—August 2017… A musician named Harmoni is sort of like a baseball player named Homer: It’s a great name if you can live up to it. Bass ace and vocalist Harmoni Kelley proved she could do that long ago, earning accolades as a session and touring player in Austin and Nashville before her recent move to Southern California.Kelley was named Bassist of the Year at the 2009-2010 Austin Music Awards, and she just keeps getting better. In 2015, country superstar Kenny Chesney tapped the hard-rocking yet versatile Kelley to carry the bottom end in his band, praising her melodic sense and rhythmic drive in a July 2015 Rolling Stone interview.“Bass is my first instrument and has pretty much been my only instrument,” offers Kelley. “I started playing bass when I was 17 years old; I was a really big Guns ‘n’ Roses fan, and I saw Duff McKagan onstage, and I thought, I want to be that guy. I want to get onstage and rock. The bass called to me; it ties everything together and makes everything move. The bass tone I prefer has a warm, buttery kind of tone, and it’s like molasses and honey, dripping and oozing. I stay away from the high-end treble sound that a lot of bass players like. That sound is great but I get my sound with an old Fender ‘P’ bass with flatwound strings through an Ampeg tube amp. To me, that’s the perfect bass tone.”

Ampeg’s the Only One for Bass Ace Chris Wyse

Los Angeles, CA—October 2017… Lauded for his work with The Cult and, more recently, with Ace Frehley, as well as with his own trio, Owl, bassist, vocalist, and songwriter Chris Wyse is a creative master of bass tone. “There’s an underdog-y attitude about the bass,” he opines. “There’s no escaping the fundamental bottom notes that are guiding the chords. As a bass player, you can totally change the feel of the song, put a spin on the sound by playing a different inversion; I like the power in that. And I like knowing that I’m guiding it right, not over-playing, or doing anything distracting.”
