Very, very comprehensive!


It's from the svt series and it's the only solid-state amp head in the entire series. It's very sturdy thanks to its wooden cab, like the svt CL. There's an opening on the rear where you can fit cables, effects... it has two big handles for transportation.
It's easy to dial in. You can choose if you want to use the EQ or not. It sounds fine straight away. If you fiddle with the EQ you can get super well-defined and varied sounds. The lows are very present, just like the mids and the highs. Nothing has been neglected. It has the Ampeg sound!


I play mainly punk rock , metal .... Ampeg is the way to go if you want a big, fat sound.


I've had it for a year and bought it for 620 euros. Good value for money, I'm very happy with it!
