Graywater: Ampeg help/opinions needed...Please.
Thanks for the insight but I am not sure I understand the design philosophy of "a split load PI with a pentode voltage amplifier feeding it". My main amp is a BFPR. It uses a split load PI and doesn't have a pentode voltage amplifier feeding it. I believe that the old Fender Deluxes were of the same design. Is there something in the design of the Ampeg that makes the preceeding pentode stage necessary? Or is it just "one way" of doing it.
