What is your overall opinion of this product?
A terrific amp with the classic Ampeg tube tone and up to 1000W of power, all at 15 pounds???? What's not to love
I purchased this amp to have a lightweight stand-alone head to mix/match with different cabinets. My preference for rigs lately has been 2x10 combo amps in the 300-400W range. I've had several other cabinets to compliment the combos, but I figured it was time to get more modular in my rig. Enter the SVT 7, which I purchased locally from a retired bass player. Immediately recognized the tube preamp sizzle from my original '73 and '74 SVTs and also realized my back wasn't killing me after setting it up! Playing thru an SVT 8X10, and later an Eminence-loaded 4X10, there was gobs and gobs of great tone. The preamp and eq sections work like typical Ampeg, with the 5 position mid selector, and the Deep and High boost switches. One area that really surprised and impressed me was the direct output. The tone to my band's recording console was pure and awesome. A+++
