Ampeg SVT Micro Head

Bass Amp HeadSince its launch in 1969, there is no alternative to the original SVT from Ampeg. The classic convinces with its unique sound and its "tube-strong" 300 Watt output power.

Now, almost four decades later, Ampeg introduces a mini-version of the legendary amplifier, which was launched under the name of SVT Micro Head. It is ideal for smaller stages and sound studios, where an original SVT would be too big and too loud.

The Micro Head is visually linked to the original SVT - with the silver front plate, the black cover, the chrome-plated corners and the silver-blue face plate, the SVT Micro Head clearly makes it clear that it is not a toy. Despite its small dimensions of 14 cm (height), 30 cm (width) and 25 cm (depth), the head has a real Ampeg preamp and a strong 200 watt transistor output stage.

For recording sessions, the SVT Micro Head has an Aux-Stereo input, which is mixed with the main input and sent to the headphone output. This feature allows the musician to listen to a click or guide track at the same time, record the direct signal from the "pream-out" and remove the amplifier via a microphone. For live applications, the familiar Ampeg Preamp controls include 15 dB pad, gain, bass, ultra-mid, treble, volume and limiter defeat, allowing the musician to quickly and effectively find the desired sound. The world-wide switching power supply and the compact dimensions make the amp the ideal travel companion.

Awesome

RyanH, 23.01.2014
We have had this little baby touring with us in Western Australia, Europe and the UK, for a few years now so we have been able to thoroughly road test it. For starters we don't use a lot of bright sounds for our bass playing in the band. We go for a smoother sound and this amp delivers perfectly. The head is so small and light and yet powerful enough to play in a full 4 piece rock band. We have 2 of the SVT-210AV cabinets one in Australia and one in Europe as they are a little to heavy to travel with on the plane. The Head we take as on board and other than a few questions through the x-rays we have never encountered any problems.

The tiny little head has taken quite a beating traveling on planes and in the back of various busses and vans. We bought a padded soft cover for it and this has helped protect the beautiful look.

Bottom line is it sounds great, looks great, has loads of power and you can attach 2 cabs at the same time however we have not had the chance to test this.

1 criticism we have noticed as you turn the volume past about 3 o-clock you start to introduce transient noise. But having said that there is plenty of gain to bring up the level and low mid and high to achieve a nice balance.

The sound for the money is hard to beat

Gunnar921, 04.02.2014
For this kind of money, I can´t think of anything that beats this.
This is a simple amplifier without anything excessive. It is very easy to dial in a great sound right away!
I must say though, because of the size and weight, it does feel like a toy. Don´t get me wrong, it is sturdy and reliable, but looks kind of funny and cute when it sits upon a larger cabinet.
I eventually sold it and bought the ampeg pf-500 to replace it. The pf-500 has a similar sound and more power. The extra 300 watts i got in my new amp are nice to have, but I have to say, there is something special about the sound the micro VR makes. I believe it is the Mosfet-power amp which sounds just great when slightly overdriven.
Buy it if you enjoy the "ampeg sound", but don´t expect it to pump out tons of volume, these 200 watts only go so far..
