50th Anniversary Celebration Of The Legendary SVT Head

This excellent bass head combines the hugely celebrated 1969 Blue Line SVT with a mid-'70s Magnavox-era preamp, to deliver a formidable sound with plenty of volume and versatility.

In addition to this, the Super Valve 6550 tubes make sure that you have all the aggression you could ever need at your fingertips.

Ampeg Heritage SVT 50TH Anniversary Tube Bass Amp Head Highlights

  • Incredible modern recreation of the original 1969 SVT
  • Two classic amplifiers in one head results in amazing versatility
  • Neutrik SpeakOn speaker output sockets
  • Classic Ampeg aesthetics with period-accurate casing

All-Valve Construction

To help deliver the kind of tone that saw Ampeg become true pioneers in the world of amplifier design, this 50th Anniversary SVT features Super Valve Technology.

This comes in the shape of six Super Valve 6550 valves in the power amplifier section, five premium JJ preamp valves, and three premium JJ driver valves, ensuring that your bass will be heard dynamically with crystal clarity, making it perfect for even the largest of venues.

Super Versatile

In addition to Super Valve Technology and that classic Blue Line SVT voice, this amplifier also features a second channel with a Magnavox-era preamp design, giving you a second distinct voice to perform with.

You can use each of these sounds independently, or even combine them for a completely new voice, mixing the raw rumble of an SVT with the smooth and clear Magnavox like only an Ampeg amplifier can.

Not only that, but with the volume and EQ controls you can fine tune your tone to suit your needs, ensuring that your playing is never lost within the mix when you perform.

Modern Features

To deliver a classic, vintage-style amplifier for the modern player Ampeg have equipped with SVT 50th Anniversary with a whole host of modern features, allowing you to make the most out of its incredible tone in any musical situation.

First of all, the enhanced XLR DI allows you to connect directly to a front of house mixing desk or studio mixer with incredible sound quality and a minimal amount of unwanted noise.

In addition to this, the SpeakOn output allows you to connect to any modern loudspeaker, making it perfect for venues of all shapes and sizes.
