Anaheim, CA (January 24, 2013) – Ampeg today adds another model to its Heritage line of amplifiers — The Heritage B-15N. Like all Ampeg Heritage models, the Heritage B-15N is designed and assembled in the U.S.A. out of premium components with extreme attention to craftsmanship and finish. The Heritage B-15N delivers the sought-after B-15 performance in a new, circuit-board based, all-tube design with a beautiful flat black finish.

“No expense is spared when we build a new Heritage model. We are dedicated to breathing life into classic Ampeg designs in our U.S.-manufacturing facility,” remarks Ampeg Product Manager Zane Williams. “The B-15N is all-tube with the exact circuit paths and incredible tone of the iconic original. Plus, the new flat black look of the head is really sleek.”

The Heritage B-15N features distinct 1964 and 1966 channels, Ampeg’s flexible Baxandall EQ and selectable bias modes for ultimate tone control. The high-quality flip-top, double-baffle cabinet is covered in black diamond tolex and factors heavily into the amazing tone of the iconic original. Built to exacting standards, the Heritage B-15N meticulously recreates the world’s most recorded bass tone.

The Ampeg Heritage B-15N is available in a 2013 limited edition run of 250 units. Each Heritage B-15N features commemorative badges on both the head and cabinet.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
