Venture V7

The 700-watt Venture V7 occupies the middle position of the three heads in the Venture Series and fits conveniently into a gig bag, a laptop bag, or the optional Venture carrying bag, making it an excellent head for the travelling bassist. Its Class D power section provides more than enough power to drive any of the Venture Series speaker cabs or practically any other cab bassists may encounter on the road.

0 dB/-15 dB Switch

Use this switch to set the optimal input level. Typically, youll want to use the -15 dB setting with instruments that include high-output pickups or active electronics, or if you frequently see the Peak LED [13] light up.

Ultra Lo

This 3-way switch selects a -20dB cut at 40Hz (left) or a 2dB boost at 40Hz combined with a -10dB cut at 500Hz (right). The centre position bypasses the Ultra Lo circuit.

Ultra Hi

This 2-way switch engages a 9dB boost at 8kHz.


This LED lights when your input signal is too high.


Engaging this switch mutes the Speaker outputs, the FX Loop Send, the DI output, and Preamp output. The Aux In signal at the Phones output is not muted. Mute may also be toggled on and off using an optional footswitch connected to the Switch jack on the rear panel. The Power/Mute Indicator LED [5] illuminates red when Mute is engaged.


This knob controls both the compression threshold and the compression ratio (up to 10:1 maximum). Turn it clockwise to increase compression, and fully counter-clockwise to turn the compressor off. The LED at the left lights to indicate whenever your input level exceeds the compressor's threshold and gain reduction is applied.

Super Grit Technology (SGT) Section

Adds classic Ampeg overdrive.

Enables or disables the SGT circuit. The SGT circuit may also be toggled on and off using an optional footswitch connected to the Switch jack on the rear panel. (Note that connecting a footswitch disables the front panel switch.)

This switch toggles between two flavours of overdrive, based on the character of either the SVT or Portaflex B15 tube amplifiers.

This dual-concentric knob adjusts the amount of grit (the inner control) and the overall output level of the circuit (the outer control).
