Product Description

The Ampeg SVT CL Classic - it is an Ampeg!
Other companies keep trying to recreate the classic all-tube sound of the 60's and 70's Ampeg heads, but it's just not the same as the real deal - Ampeg. And they're the ONLY bass amp company that can make that claim. When you specify a Classic Series head, it's not "like an Ampeg"... it is an Ampeg.

Ampeg Classic Series Heads are designed for players who are looking for the authentic, vintage Ampeg tube sound that has earned the respect of the industry. For the ultimate experience, it's the Ampeg SVT-CL - the Classic, as it's known in the business. There is no equivalent to its 300 watt output courtesy of six 6550 power tubes.

  • Tube Protection Circuitry
  • Auto-fault Mode
  • Fan Cooled
  • Slave Output Jack

The Last Amp I Will Ever Buy!
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I waited to do my review until I had a chance to gig with it. This amp is exceptional. It provides the tone you have heard on countless recordings and at concerts for decades.I am an audio engineer as well as a bass player and I have never been happy with my live bass sound. This amp is the definition of "set it and forget it" It is dynamic and almost like playing an instrument onto itself...play lightly and you get nice warm tone, dig in and play hard and you get the Ampeg grind. Why 4 stars? The front amp grill board shipped warped. This is a known issue that happens on these amps. AMS offered a return but I didn't want to ship a perfectly good amp back for such a small thing. The Grills are available from Loud Technologies for about $25.00. Frankly if it weren't for the 12 pay...I wouldn't have this thing.Get yourself one! Thank you you AMS.

B-STOCK PROBLEMS GOOD SOUND, FOREVER IN REPAIR....
What is your opinion of this product?
Great sounding amp, but had major issues, was a b-stock model and buzzed for 2 seconds on standby, and direct out and effect in/out did not work! other than that sounded amazing! Ive had it in shop for months hopefully it will be up and running well again... I use a 7pro now and its decent.

Everything you ever read is true
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?

The last bass head you'll need to buy.
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Very solid construction and it looks great!

FEATURES:
This has 3 band EQ plus 2 switches for extra treble or a cut of mids. It could use an extra mid in place of the 2 switches. It has biasing dials on the back so when tubes need to be changed, it is very easy to adjust.

EASE OF USE:
Stupid easy to use. Experimentation is the key to getting the most out of this head.

VALUE:
$1500 is a lot of money, but it is so well spent. I don't plan on buying another head for a very very long time.

SOUND:
I run this into an Ampeg 4x10 pro series and an Eminence 1x15. It is thunderous.

STYLE:
Impending Doom Prog Metal

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
2 Years

OVERALL:
It took some time to get this dialed in where is fit in with my band, but once it got there, it was awesome. Tubes are great! At concert levels, you get this grind when you really start digging into the
