Ampeg SVT VR 70’s Vintage Reissue 300-watt tube bass amp,
This amp is brand-new, in the box, unused. Perfect condition. I play a Mesa Boogie Bass 400+ and don’t need two huge powerful tube bass heads, so I’m selling or trading this. From Ampeg’s press release:
The Ampeg SVT VR is a faithful vintage reissue of the highly sought-after early 1970s “blue-line” SVT head.
With the new SVT-VR, the Ampeg engineering and product development teams had one primary goal–get as close to the coveted tone of the classic SVT as possible. As a result, the preamp stage, power section, and even the rocker switches of the new SVT-VR emulate the exact signal path, tone, and vibe of the original.
The all-tube, 300W SVT-VR amplifier is driven by a total of 6 – 6550 power tubes for massive power and tone. In addition to the ’70s style dials and rocker switches, the SVT-VR’s preamp circuitry has been faithfully re-created to match the original.
