Buy one if you can!

11.04.2016
I've used and AMPEG SVT 2 PRO for almost 20 years and never thought I'd need anything else...............until this came along!
I was looking for a compact valve bass amp for rehearsals and small values which could feed a PA on bigger nights and didn't weigh 30kg............this is it.
I bought it with the PF115 cab and even together you can move them with one hand.
I've now played it with Hofner, Ric, Gibson and Stingray and every bass sounds amazing, they each sound 10x what you'd expect from a little amp.......it's the best little valve amp available in my opinion............and its louder than you'd think.
If you are looking at this review, I'd say buy it, you'll be surprised,
There's not many nights I need the SVT thanks to this amp

PROs
It sounds amazing
Not much choice if you want a light valve bass head with some kick
It's an AMPEG
and it sounds amazing again
It's an AMPEG again

Cons
Can't think of any if you want this kind of amp

Sounds not only r hypypically outstanding, but also gives an 1A preamp

14.06.2016
Admittedly, when I started playing with the PF-50T, I had doubts as to whether this amplifier was capable of a mere 50 watts (even if it was a tube watt) and the price was very high Is a sensible investment.
This was especially the concern that the performance for the stage could simply be too little.
In addition, the company Ampeg offers a tube amplifier with 100 watts, which in terms of performance is not even so much more expensive and therefore probably absolutely stage-favorable.
So why choose the PF-50T?

There is the extremely good sound of the amplifier. This has a naturalness, assertiveness and presence, which is second to none. It is not necessary to turn the mids for the sound. All the tones over the entire handleboard are simply incredibly high quality. The sound seems to be walking through the room.
Now, a good sound is of course the one thing and certainly there are also many other bassamps, which deliver a similarly good sound quality. However, this PF-50T has a feature that makes it special among tube amplifiers. The amp can be operated without a load resistor (without a box). Thus, the PF-50T can be used as a 1A? Preamp! So if you already have an amplifier (or you can connect the amp to the power amp of a powerful other bass amp), you have the choice: either use the amp as a pure tube amplifier or you use it as a preamp and then get an astride in combination with a power amplifier Hybridamp, with which you, a powerful output stage, is also equipped for louder bands.
This feature is mentioned in all product descriptions and test reports on the device, but in my opinion, much too little appreciated. By the way, the signal can be heard at different points (in front of or behind the output stage).
But even without an additional output stage, this amp provides enough power for my perception to be able to compete effortlessly with small or medium performances such as in pubs or clubs. The sound control is absolutely effective and allows a wide range of sounds. Only the Ampeg typical ultra low and ultra high? Switches I think is superfluous. The Ultra low switch, in particular, takes the amp's power, which is what makes this amplifier so special. The sound becomes deeper and wider, but it is very strong.

So if you're looking for a new amp, first-class sound, and if you're not on the big stages of the world at home, you should take a look at this part.
If you appreciate the sound of this amp, but because of the relatively low power of 50 watts has doubts about the practicality, I strongly recommend that you seriously consider using this amp in combination with a suitable amplifier as a hybridamp.

So you have with the PF-50T not only a full-tube amplifier, but also an excellent preamp, whereby then also the price is right.
With the sound quality one plays here in any case in the top class!
