Ampeg SVT Micro VR 200-Watt Classic Head
Arriving Soon Notify me

The SVT goes small with the SVT Micro Head!

The SVT Micro head is a pint-sized amp that's chock full of the same classic tone that made the original SVT such a bass powerhouse. The SVT Micro is perfect for recording or live sound situations where the SVT Classic is too much horsepower, but you still want the SVT sound that has been the industry standard for nearly four decades. The perfect companion to the SVT Micro is the SVT210AV, a compact 2 x 10" cabinet. For situations where you need SVT sound without SVT volume or girth, the SVT Micro is a perfect choice.

Ampeg SVT Micro Head at a Glance:
  • SVT sound
  • Perfect for lower volume situations

SVT sound
The sound and feel of the legendary SVT is alive and well in the SVT Micro Head. The solid-state preamp and MOSFET power amp interact for the punch and crunch that makes the full-sized SVT the sound of bass - a title the SVT has held since 1969. Plus, its compact size makes it easier to lug from gig to gig that its bigger siblings that weigh in much heavier.

Perfect for lower volume situations
Sometimes the gig doesn't require the sheer amount of horsepower afforded by the 300-watt+ heads of the traditional SVT line. The SVT Micro Head fits this bill beautifully, with an ample-but-not-overpowering 200 watts of power at 4 ohms. Tone shaping is provided via the Ultra Mid control and the 3-band EQ. Balanced line out with pre/post and pad are also included. Don't forget the cabinet with the SVT210AV.

Ampeg SVT Micro Head Features:
  • Preamp: Solid State
  • Power Amp: MOSFET
  • RMS Power Output: 200 Watts @ 4 ohms
  • Tone Controls: 3-Band
  • Mid Tone Control: Ultra Mid
  • Balanced Line Out: with Pre/Post and Pad
  • Dimensions (W x H x D inches): 12 x 5.5 x 10

Tiny Giant

At 9.9 pounds it surelu packs a punch. Yes it is solid state but it still captures that SVT tube tone. Great job Ampeg! I play through a large FOH system so I don't have to be loud on stage. I basically needed a great tone to be boasted out front and this little amp gets the job done. I strap on my gig bag and walk in with my head in one hand and my matching 2x10 Ampeg cabinet in my other hand and I'm set up in like 5 minutes, Sure beats the old 8x10 cabinets from yesteryear. Plus I can load everything in the back of my Hyundai Sonata. Can't be happier.

Ampeg SVT Micro VR-200 Watt Head

It delivers without question. Ampeg has stayed in the arena with everyone else when it comes to lighter weight, good power and big sound. Go to a local store and check one out. Awesome rig. Very satisfied

Awesome and so transportable

It's like carrying your lunchbox around, so light and manageable as compared to most heads of comparable watts. It produces great sound with a nice amount of room to dial in your perfect tone. If you play fairly aggressively it will clip quite frequently (almost constant), but I guess that's what clipping is designed to do. Besides the benefits already mentioned, it is a totally cool looking rig when sitting upon its counterpart speaker cab. It looks like someone put a full size stack in the dryer for too long, lol.I would definitely recommend this over a combo all day for someone in the 200 watt market.


My Fender Jazz Bass sounds excellent through this little baby. Both of my Taylors with the Expression System (added a bit of analogue chorus through the loop) are incredible. And as far as a "surround sound" system for my plasma panel, I mike it with a SM-58 on a boom stand and run this through the VR, two 2x10s and a 4x12 1967 Bandmaster elongated cabinet. BadAss. Thanks. Have not used an Ampeg sine 1980. My friend had a V-4. Miss it. K.M.

Ampeg Rocks!

This little amp is amazing! Very light to carry, Tons of tone and lots of power. Sounds good with one or two of the matching cabinets! This amp has worked great in small and medium sized clubs. I have even used it outside and it worked well. If you are looking for a system that is compact, light and easy to transport don't hesitate to purchase this amp!
