Hello... You are looking at our original New Old Stock 1979 Ampeg V-4 Amplifier with matching V-4 Ampeg 4 x 12 Speaker Cabinet. Purchased by us, M.E.S. Music Equipment Sales Ltd. as an authorized Ampeg Dealer at the time, this amplifier/speaker set has NEVER been sold. It was delivered to us in August 1979 and has been on display in our store for thirty-five (35) years. Unbelievable!!! I would doubt that it has as much as one (1) hour of play-time in all those years!
This Ampeg V-4 Amplifier, Serial Number 162253 with matching Ampeg 4 x 12 Speaker Cabinet, Serial Number 168305 was built during the Magnavox/Selmer era in Elkhart, Indiana, U.S.A. Features include:

Tube Line-up :
Power Tubes: V5-8: 4 x 7027A 'Made in USA ' Magnavox. A note about these tubes: Three are original 'Made in USA ' Magnavox tubes. The fourth is a NOS 'Made in USA ' 7027A zero hour Groove Tube. That fourth Magnavox tube was accidentally broken during preparation for the photo shoot. I viewed the new old stock Made in USA G-T 7027A as a better replacement choice than other available off-shore tubes.
