Really surprised with this ampI'm an Engineer/Songwriter, and I've been on the hunt for an affordable recording bass amp. If you're like me, you may have noticed a serious lack choices perfect for that application. I read a lot of reviews on this amp, mixed reviews. Its hard to trust any of them, I know. Well when I finally got around to demoing one out, I must say I was completely blown away. This thing has tone to boot. A really tight low end that just screams "RECORD ME!", well at least that's what I thought it said. Its the perfect sound for me. I don't slap, I don't do thin punk or metal sounds, I just need a good bass that rounds out a song. This is it. It does get plenty loud, I never pushed it beyond 11 o'clock on both gain and master. But I don't care about how loud it gets, it sounds fantastic at lower volumes, which is a huge plus. I also demoed a very similar looking product from Acoustic, and it had tons of bass... and nothing else. I tried very hard to find a nice character or definition in it... not even close to the ampeg. So long story short, trust me, if you need a recording amp for bass, at least keep this on your short list!

dynomite classic svt sound from a small compact packageampeg svt what can you say this little monster will rattle the walls in any small venue with 150w
to get 200w you need another svt210av cab its light weight and small footprint make it ideal to transport anywhere and the mirco amp head has built in effects loop plus a headphone jack and audio source in so you can play along to your fav music or practice without disturbing your neibors perfect for both practice and gigs and you can also send your sound to a mix board etc for recording all the amp you will ever need

Great little Amgeg cabTired of hauling the big Ampeg rig around for smaller gigs? Get one of these. I've got Ampeg 8X10, 4X10, 1X15 cabinets that I use with new and old SVT heads because I love the tone from these big rigs. But the size and weight is taking a toll on my back and knees. And for smaller gigs, I just don't need all of that power anymore.
I purchased the SVT Micro head and a single 2X10 cab several months ago. The tone IS Ampeg, but smaller.
Our drummer is a bit loud at times, so I purchased another 2X10 cabinet to move more air. The Micro head will produce another 50 watts when loaded with two of these cabinets down to 4 ohms.
Don't ask it to be as percussive and loud as your old tube SVT blue line, because it will not. But it gets the job done when you have a small stage, and need a personal monitor that sounds like an Ampeg.
The only negitive I have is the grill cloth on the newer cabinet does not fully match the grill on the first SVT- 2X10 cabinet I purchased with the Micro head (perhaps the grill cloth is from a different manufacture). Not really a big deal, but I'll knock off a half star on the review...
In a sentence, that Ampeg tone, light weight, and I can unload my bass and rig in one trip from the (small) car.

Very Nice!Very nice sounding little cab. Only complaint is the tolex could be better quality. I like this so much I'm thinking about getting a second one.
