Ampeg Portaflex PF-20T Bass Amplifier Head All-Tube 20w PF20T PRO Studio DI Amp
The PF-20T Portaflex 20-watt bass amplifier head puts the iconic tones of all-tube Ampeg amplifiers in a compact package, ideal for rehearsal, small gigs, and recording. You’ll find a set of 12AX7 and 6V6 tubes powering the amplifier, which conjures the warm tube sound associated with vintage Ampeg. Weighing in around 15 lbs., the small size and light weight make transporting the PF-20T a piece of cake. And since it doesn’t require a speaker load to run, this amp easily gets those tube tones on your recorded tracks without having a cab connected. Get vintage Ampeg tube tone in a lightweight package with the PF-20T.
All-tube Ampeg tone
Inside of the PF-20T Portaflex bass head, you’ll find a set of glowing 6V6 and 12AX7 tubes. The tube design of this amplifier allows you to get that warm, harmonically rich tone Ampeg is known for, or push it hard to get an overdriven tube growl. So whether your ideal Ampeg tone is bringing Motown thump, or grabbing a pick and punching the front end of your amplifier as hard as you can, you’ll fall in love with the tones in the Ampeg PF-20T Portaflex.
Huge sound, convenient size
Even with the diminutive size of the PF-20T Portaflex amp, you have all you need for getting huge tones through your cabinet, on your tracks, or both at the same time. The straightforward front panel makes dialing in your tones a snap, while the back panel offers XLR outputs for preamp out (with pre/post EQ switch) and transformer-balanced line-out. Its smaller footprint is easy to transport, and it sits beautifully on a recording desk or affixes to current Ampeg Flip-top cabinets. And the whole tube package is less than 16 lbs.
A great recording tool for players of all styles
One of the most useful features of the PF-20T Portaflex bass amp is its ability to run without a speaker load. Combing this with the preamp out (with pre/post EQ switch) and transformer-balanced line-out, you can optimize the PF-20T as a desktop unit for running direct and sending your tube tone straight to your recording rig. The smaller size allows it to sit right on your studio desk within easy reach, and the black metal casing and glowing tubes look cool and classy.
