Ampeg SVT Limited Edition 300-Watt Bass Amp Head 1987

Featured Listing


Introduced in 1969, the Ampeg SVT was an absolutely revolutionary amplifier, pushing an unprecedented 300 watts through an 8 by 10 cabinet.

In 1986 and 1987, Ampeg made a limited number of "Skunkworks" SVTs. They use American rather than Japanese transformers.
