Everything you ever read is true

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The Ampeg SVT Classic is built like a tank - It was shipped to me at 90 pounds postage. From what I read this is the most sought after and used amp for bass of all time. I have not had any problems.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
It actually is simple in it's design, however the range of tone is astounding. The quality of sound is the best feature. This is not an amp you use for light gigging. It's a beast. My only suggestion would be to make it lighter, but absolutely not if it were to compromise any of the tone.
How is the tone?
I read reviews about other bass amps and they are always rated by how they sound similar to a classic SVT. Nothing else sounds like this amp and you can feel it take over the room your are playing in. The tone is amazing. It changed the way I play
Your general opinion of this product.
Everything I ever heard about the Ampeg Classic SVT became apparent the day I played through one. I ordered mine that day. Honestly has there ever been something negative said about this Amp?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Enough said...........demo an Ampeg Classic SVT and make your own judgement.
