Ampeg SVT-3 PRO

Julien60, 02.06.2011
Hello,
I bought since this head of hybrid bass amp and I am more than satisfied.
I have to admit that I had a lot of trouble adjusting this head, even with the instructions, it is a real headache. But once we find the sound that suits us, (which is not very difficult given the versatility of the beast), we are simply conquered. The little more of this head is the incorporated equalizer. She does her weight but also her job, so this is not a very important detail. I would do without hesitation this choice. Ampeg is a sure brand, and trusted.

Bombshell !!!

DannyB, 24.10.2009
optics
At an amp to perform optics may sound silly, but I must say that the Ampeg simply synonymous optically exactly my taste meets

Processing / Durability
I think that the top is only broken with raw violence or through a world tour. If you buy it directly after purchase in a 19 "rack, the top part is in my opinion indestructible !!! The processing is with this top part 1a. There is nothing I would ever have had to complain about.

Handling / Possibilities
Ampeg perhaps suffers from the prejudice that they are pure "rock amps". But I find that I from the SVT-3 any sound rausbekomme I want and who is the sound bite plays will be noticed that the amp is very flexible. Everything came out as straight as you want. The killerfeatures at the Amp, which were also important for me before the purchase are:

Tuner Out: Just a tuner is plugged on and can be tuned. The best thing is that it remains active when you mute everything mutes.

Mute switch: Ideal for changing instruments and tuning on the stage.

Switchable 9 band EQ: Actually a super feature, which I somewhat misunderstood. Since I usually have no time on the stage to switch something or to think about it, I have the EQ adjusted so that he just a bit the final volume down. This prevents me in parts with clean guitars push the guitars out of the mix. For friends of soundbass, however, the EQ offers certainly more possibilities

Tube Gain: With this great regulator the voltage supply to the tubes can be regulated. That sounds as exciting as it is. By reducing the tension you can lend dreamlike tweaked tube sounds from the amp where you are proud of every Euro that the amp has cost. Turned in the other direction, the sound is wonderfully clear and defined. A powerful controller!

The other knobs and knobs are largely standard and just as with all other amps in this price class.

At the rear of the Ampg is a balanced / unbalanced line-out with switchable EQ and Groundlift. Every sound engineer will thank you. The best thing is that the DI-out is set behind the tube preamp. Ergo has a tube sound in the desk. What more do you want?

By means of a stereo jack cable a footswitch can be connected which then mute and EQ served.

Also a nice feature: you can disconnect the signal before the power amplifier and connect another power amp or the other sas signal inter the preamp into the amp chase and thus only the power stage of the Svt-3 use.

Sound
Ampeg. Easy to use. It's true, Ampeg has its own sound. And that's good. I like the sound very much and the SVT-3 delivers this sound just like any other Ampeg amp. However, I find the amp is variable enough to cover many other sounds you might like as a bass player. I've played with fun, jazz, punk, rock, metal and choirs. Everything is possible. Everything sounds great.

Conclusion
Clear purchase recommendation!
