Love this amp!
AndreiK, 09.01.2020
I've recently bought this amp and I am totally amazed. I use it with an Warwick Streamer 5 Broadneck and it sounds awesome. The amp is extremely versatile, you can reach from jazzy smooth round sounds to agresive doomish ones with a massive low end punch. This amp puts a special touch to a modern bass, so if you are into modern bass sounds with a vintage touch this might be your cup of tea

THE Beast
Erdna Eduan, 27.05.2019
This is that sound you've heard for years, and this is the only way to get it. Expensive and heavy, but I'm happy with my decision. I love this amp!

A true classic?
George J, 29.01.2019
This SVT classic will bring you a classic rock sound. It will growl and bark like you know from your favourite rock albums. Like the JCM 800 for guitars it could be considered a one trick pony but what a trick it is.

downsides:
it's not as a good as a 'real' old US blue stripe sound wise, I could not get a bad sound out of that one. This can get ... from great to ok.
It's heavy ... It has many valves (or tubes) and a massive transformer. There are more fun things to carry.

Plus:
It's a classic sound for a reason. Still works like a charm despite being 'not a US' built.

If you like the SVT sound you can't go wrong with this one.

Alles was man braucht...
fischerM, 08.10.2009
Der Name Ampeg steht an sich schon für Qualität, die SVT Serie für die allerhöchste. Steht man dann auch noch auf den klassischen Röhren-Sound ohne viele Schnörksel, Ampmodelling und sonstiges Blabla, Unnötigkeiten und Fakes, dann führt wohl kein Weg an diesem Gerät vorbei.

Selbst der Verzicht auf einen (hin und wieder vielleicht doch ganz praktischen) Graphische Equalizer fällt dabei nicht ins Gewicht. Apropos Gewicht: davon hat der SVT CL genug - rund 40kg (80 lbs). Damit hat man mit einer entsprechenden Box bald schon mal 100 kg im Gepäck. Dafür aber auch 300 Watt Vollröhren-Power, die man auf Lautstärke alleine herunter gebrochen wohl nur in ganz wenigen Locations ausleben können wird - aber Lautstärke ist ja nicht alles: Der Ampeg SVT Classic hat auf grund dieser enormen Power immer ausreichende Reserven und bietet genau darum die Möglichkeit sich mit dem eigenen Sound zu beschäftigen und diesen auch umzusetzen ohne dabei jemals am Limit zu kratzen.

Neben dem Gain- und Master-Control gibt´s dazu noch folgende Regler: Bass (+/-12dB @ 40Hz), Midrange (+10dB, -20dB) @ Frequency (220, 450, 800, 1,6k oder 3k Hz), Treble (+15dB, - 20dB @ 4kHz) sowie UltraLo (+2dB @ 40Hz und -10dB @ 500Hz) und UltraHi (+9dB @ 8kHz).
Auch die Rückseite hat mit Polarityswitch (zum Reduzieren etwaigen elektrischen Brummens), SlaveOut, BalancedOut (XLR), PreAmpOut, PowerAmpIn, Impendanzselektor (2ohm, 4ohm) und 2 Klinken-SpeakerOutputs sowie einem Speakon-SpeakerOutput alles was man braucht.
So viel zu den technischen Daten... Jedenfalls kann ich das Ampeg SVT Classic - Topteil (unabhängig von stilistischen Sounderfordernissen oder benötigter Lautstärke - es bringt immer den nötigen Druck!) einfach nur weiter empfehlen.
