Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It,s put together fine the only snagg is the black paint on the speaker cab, who ever painted it could have used a roller. Paint strokes every way.Quailty Control???????? Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Light weight and can move it around, get it in a Bug!!!Did upgrade the speaker cable to Monster,will get covers!!! Sound How is the tone? Now the SOUND is Ampeg and yes if pushed it will brakk alittle but thats were E.Q. comes in.I use the Tech 21 VT box and E.Q. her dial in and out the bass freq and get a nice full fat sound, and don,t 4get the limiter U can get some nice sounds just got to dail her in. General Your general opinion of this product. I do own a July 1969 Linden New Jeresy SVT and also getting the new AV Model.But she,ll be on stage when I play out just keep in mind she does have a limit so have funn and Good Hunting!!! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Yours to go find.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? So far so good. The tolex isn't peeling on mine, so maybe they've got that solved. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The extreme lightweight of this amp is fabulous. It is a rather anemic 150 watts though. I get way more volume out of a 60 watt Vox and a 100 watt Fender Rumble. Sound How is the tone? Tone is very Ampeg. Thru the Av210 cabinet, the low end distorts a bit too much. This amp sure doesn't feel like 150watts into 8 ohms. General Your general opinion of this product. Cute, easy to move, quite under powered though. Won't cut it for most gigs. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Signature Ampeg tone. What more can be said.
Can die on you anytime.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Nope. I bought it new, I used two compatible 2-10" ampeg cabinets with it at 8 ohms each. Two weeks later I could smell a burning wire odor while I was practicing even while my volume was low, gain was at 4 o'clock and volume was at 3 o'clock. Then suddenly it lost its volume drastically with a distorted sound. Returned it to the seller(not AMS)and got my refund. I bought the Ampeg Portaflex PF500 Bass Head from AMS instead. I did some research on AMPEG products, they are now made in China not USA, but only the SVT Heritage is made in the USA. This is a common problem with the Micro VR bass amp head,it can conk out(burn out)on you and lose power. Ampeg Quality is not the same as in the past when the Ampeg products were made in the USA. I wish I kept my SVT with 8 10" speakers cabinet when I bought it in the early 70's. Had to sell it because it was too heavy to lug around to the gigs. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Has that SVT sound and very light weight compared to my old SVT head back in the 70's. Sound How is the tone? Good classic SVT sound. A little too much midrange on the sound. General Your general opinion of this product. It's good if it lasts and does not burn out in the middle of a gig. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? mid range to bassy type sound.
