  • The ultimate head

    All-tube amp head.
    Detailed specifications are on the manufacturer's website.
    The power output is 300W (watt lamps, ideal for deafness).
    Settings, it is the basic equalization, gain the master + gadjets two buttons (ultra high and ultra low fréquece) for people who do funk or metal.

    I note as well I like the amps that are not calculators where 2H handling are required to have a not acceptable sound, a simple EQ, gain the master = THE sound and baste my dream.

    The only problem is that it weighs 45 kg. It is (very) heavy. Too heavy. So 3 points less.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be more simple, the knobs do their job, it was the place regardless of his race.

    The only problem is that it weighs 45 kg. It is (very) heavy. Too heavy. So 3 points less.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be more simple, the knobs do their job, it was the place regardless of his race.

    The manual is a bit long to read, with details not necessarily comprehensible to the common man on the electronics and lights inside.

    I can not get a bad sound with this head, it sounds low, medium and high see strong volume (even with mediocre speakers).

    I note perfect for use level was THE sound without taking the cabbage for 20 years.

    SOUNDS

    I do not really have a defined style of music when I play bass, I'm full of replacements in groups, but it made me dream of all these styles:
    - Rockabilly
    - Rock ('n' roll, psychedelic, hard)
    - Reggae, ska, dub
    - Original blues Rythm'n
    - Funk
    - Blues
    I've never faulted, neither I nor anyone else.

    I play with a Rickenbacker 4003, it is a perfect combination, and contrary to what you read everywhere, very versatile, we're looking for a little bit and it opens his ears.

    No hate to sound with this amp is simply the best. It is perfect.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a little over a year, repeated in my house (in the lounge), and nothing to say, always waiting for you.

    I tried many things before, but eventually, this amp all the other buried.

    I love his ability to THE sound with any bass.
    I do not like the weight.

    The value for money is like anything, when you buy the top, you know what to expect, this is the case with this head.

    With hindsight I would not do it again this choice (unless I was up a studio at home and the amp does not have to move), I have back problems and this amp is incompatible with this disease. I repeat Ampeg, but a hybrid head that weighs less than 20 kg ...

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is very simple, it's a breeze.
    This gives her a very easy, whether blues, rock, funk, mtal, pop, bossa, song anything is possible with this amp head. Can be less comfortable in jazz.
    One connects the head and found her a very easy standard, hot trs, trs round sound a little vintage lovers trs own sounds like the amps Hartke or SWR will find not employed.
    No need for manual for it to sortir.Il little rglage trs, trs but they are effective.

    SOUNDS

    It's perfect for styles of music I play and I never encounter any problem to find a sound that suited me.
    I use it with an Ampeg SVT 810E cabinet Classic.Je branch head in a custom low-Tune 5-string or a patriot custom Mayones cordes.adpote 5.
    Otherwise I go out as the Tagus power of the head to attack a SVT Avalon.C Di is the class, sounds serious.
    I think we can all esprer head with this amp, but one's own trs but it's not an amp for his prcis without me.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it on 20/01/01.
    I like the warm sound typical Ampeg svt lampe.Comme the heads Mesa Boogie 400 +, 300 Fender Bassman, Ampeg SVT 2 Pro ...
    Prior to this head, I had a dj SWR SM-400, an EBS Fafner.Mais no n 'Tone like this.
    Otherwise I tried a head DJ Ampeg Pro Svt3 but silent trs below the classic.
    Price lev purchase and for maintenance. Allow to change the power tubes every 3000 hours and those of all prampli 5000 heures.Cel seems long but if you use it often passes quickly and it has onreux trs.
    But I do it again without hsiter this choice because the sound is to go vous.Personne can not ignore this header.

    Note that the gray circle on the canvas before disgusting is due to the presence of a fan, I would have seen on the back or with a more thoughtful ...

    Features:
    Amplifier while low watt bulbs of 300W in 2 or 4 ohms.
    Tubes: 3 x 12AX7 2 x 12AU7 x 6 6550



    Dimensions:
    Width: 60.96 cm
    Height: 29.21 cm
    Depth: 33 cm
    Weight: 36.3 kg
    I highly recommend the use of a flight case with four butterfly for transport. The price of the machine ...
    Complete connectivity:

    On the front:
    Entries and 0dB-15dB

    On the back:
    - Exit "slave out" Jack (I think it only serves to enter another amp to chain two, otherwise there is overlap with the exit "preamp out")
    - Exit "ball out" XLR
    - Exit "Preamp Out" / input "power amp in" by Jack
    - Two HP Output Jack and Speakon in

    This amp is an amp "roots" with a particular grain, to the attention of amateurs and professionals. Direct connection "in the low amp" no effect gives this result we can regret the absence of leadership mute the signal to an output tuner.

    At the back of the amp, there is also a cross of ground (to be activated in case of buzz), and two trim + 4 LEDs to adjust the bias.

    Settings:
    On the front left to right:
    - knob gain
    - Two inters: Ultra Hi / Lo Ultra
    - knob Bass
    - Midrange knob coupled with a 5-way cross "Frequency"
    - knob Treble
    - Master knob

    Two interstitial used to power the amp.
    There is a small procedure to be followed:

    CAUTION not to be trapped: The position of inters I was at the top, unlike most electrical appliances where they usually place the position "on" down!

    Ignition:
    The inter Standby must be 0.
    Put the Power of a cross.
    Wait five minutes (heat lamps but do not receive high voltage) the LED indicator is red.
    Put the cross on a standby. This sends the high voltage in the lamps of the power section. The LED indicator turns green (not always instantly by the way) the amp is ready to play.

    Pause:
    To save the lamps during breaks, it is possible to inter Standby O. This has the effect of leaving the lights in the heating position, but off the high voltage. The LED indicator goes back to red (not immediately).

    Extinction:
    Opinions differ on how to extinction of a tube amp.
    The procedure most argued that I found is that described by the company Analog Bros:
    While the amp is running (and Standby Power on 1), there must be only inter Power 0. (Leaving the Standby on an inter!)
    The effect is to completely empty the capacitors and prolong their life.
    Within minutes, you must return the inter standby to 0 in order not to be surprised at the next ignition.

    It is strongly recommended not to move the amp as the lamps have cooled. Hot lamps are sensitive to shocks.

    Small details:
    The impedance switch
    It can be confusing.
    Following information obtained directly from Ampeg, this one is 4 ohms:


    And here we are 2 ohms:


    Connection of speakers
    Following my reading on the Net, it seems preferable to wire the speakers in or Speakon cables with the largest section possible and as short as possible.
    - The Speakon help prevent errors in connection with the dramatic Jacks (one day, I shuttered my HP Jacks in the effects loop instead of the HP output. A little, and my output transformer are passed. ..)
    - Taking Speakon agrees to spend tens of amps, not Jack.
    - Large section cables avoid loss of power and dampen the effect against the current (the current produced by the cabinet when he puts in place)

    So I made two cable 4mm ² Speakon Neutrik home, there I am alone.


    UTILIZATION

    Simple setup: Yes, there are the standard settings of many bass amps. I was not out of place to the extent that they are exactly the same settings as my old Fender BXR300, except that the lower settings are much more effective!

    Sound: AMPEG RULES! There is a considerable reserve of power. Any action on the Master knob means more ...
    Note the possibility of obtaining a beautiful sound full, new to me who had so far joué than transistor amplifiers.
    This amp gives the best of himself to large volume. So I think any test in-store or at home or distorted. The real test is in concert with the drummer on one side and the other guitar amp! And that means that this amp was in the belly.

    Manual: It is 8 pages including 2 of the legal warnings, so it is unfortunately not nearly enough (downloadable from the official page of Ampeg). That's why I intend to compile all my info here!

    Note that the customer service at Ampeg seems cool: While I only buy the second hand market, they always answered all my questions via email within 24 hours (as long to ask them in English)

    Something still quite annoying with this amp is that you can not play 8 Ohms (it works in 2 or 4 Ohms)
    I was hoping, by purchasing two cabs SVT410HE (8 ohms the speaker) can make a speaker in small rooms and two in the biggest concerts.
    Can it! Unless you buy a special cab as SVT410HLF (which is 4 Ohms, but for weight and size well in excess of one of my speakers)

    It would have been sufficient a few turns of output transformer in addition to that it goes into 8 ohms. Too bad ...

    SOUNDS

    It suits my style of music. Miss more than that after two years of frantic saving ...

    I play this amp with a bass Vox Custom, compression EBS and two Ampeg cabs SVT410. And it sends!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it since November 2007.
    After many concerts, I feel we left for a stretch of road together!
    I thought the only use of the big scenes, but even in a cafe-concert, I'm reluctant to go ...

    Note that the purchase price is nine, despite these times of global competition, very high. The interview is also (changing lamps and bias settings). But on the second hand market is the kind of amp that does not lose value if it remains in good condition.

    Also note that the weight of the head involves the use of a flight case, and a mass of about 42 kgs compact is not without some risks to the vertebrae. It is a problem which must be considered before buying: Do I have the right vehicle for transport?

    Rglages: just the basics.

    - Master

    I want to correct something that does not seem to have understood by the previous ones opinion, which considrent that this amp has no effects loop ... Like almost all the amps conus era of SVT-CL, and it goes Fender Musicman, etc. ... there is an exit "Pr-amp Out" and between "Power Amp In" on the back of the amp. It is the need insrer your belongings if you really need.

    The output "Slave Out" when it will send the sound of your rglages, effects, etc ... directly from the "Power Amp In" another amp fawn have more powerful sound. But hey, you really play the major scnes to need.

    DI output will allow you to send audio to a mixer or a recorder with an XLR connector symtrique, very practical on scne or studio.

    Speakon speaker connections or Jack, and it is better prfrer Speakon connectors given the power transmitted to the speaker, whatever the chosen impdance.

    The LORD "Power" and "Stanby" amps Submitted lamp are right in front. In this regard, I recall that the standby is the most for heating and for Securing the lights during a change of instrument or connections. The amp has its own electronic CONTRL of the diode tmoin status changes from red to green when the Systm is ready, not just when you press the button changes the standby state, Unlike many amp lamps. To turn on the amp, "Power," expected at least 30 seconds, then active "Standby". The lamp turns green when the power is actually transmitted and stable in lamps. To dye, it disables "Standby" is waiting for the light turns red. Even if it is recommended to wait a little longer, we can dye the amp now l.

    Warning, it is important to wait for the head to cool before moving. And pay attention to sudden changes in temprature, such indoor / collection outdoor or scne / backstage. A flight case is a good idea at least a.

    Note, finally, the prsence a switch of power supply cable of ct which selects the polarity power, fawn rduire possibly a buzz, and 'SETTING THE CASC direct bias the power tubes with tmoin bright. It is noted that this head is well particulirement Designed as it has its own electronic CONTRL of, and diffrent tmoins diodes (power forward, plus that of bias) allow State of the rapid diagnostic lamps. The amp will automatically security if he can not function properly.

    At the finish, a simple head and rgler use, efficient in its connectivity. We can only criticize his weight (37 kg), say to me, but it is just a sign of quality food lamps, with a unique design and low for the amp lamp instruments.

    UTILIZATION

    If we take the time to read the manual, there is s'apperoit SETTING THE 4 types of base (Jazz, Funk, Rock and Country. It trs INTERESTED to base the above, because the proposals are relevant trs. And it just in a minute to find the sound that matches what you want.

    The rglage gain is made on the basis of the instrument, it can push a little if you want to have a bit of saturation. The quality of the circuits allows for a beautiful drive, I readily admit, even if it is not recommended for use Premire Ampeg. Fat, when he, must come from the low and the player.

    The volume is the only volume in the rle: it does not CONTRL power of the head, but the amplitude of the signal coming from the pre-amp, power sent the Tagus . It is the to make it enjoyable to hear the rest of the group. Even if it is clear that without putting back, guitarists who usually with their crnent bazard quickly feel a little small .... ;-)

    Note, After a few trials, it is possible to "play quietly", which can s'avrer scnes practice some more or to register at the same time in one pice : Connect the output of DI derrire the amp to a mixer or recorder, turn on the amp, but leave it in standby. You can CONTRL volume sent to the DI with the "Master" of the pre-amp. And shoo it away. Be careful, as a result, if you planted your like a concert and you put in standby, the sound of the bass will still be in the same faade.

    http://ampeg.com/manuals/stv-cl.pdf Tlcharger to the user manual. It is over, but we do not really need to know more.

    SOUNDS

    So I think we should dj for some prs all styles of music. It is not equivalent to a REFERENCE everything pop and rock, go to a festival like Eurockennes Belfort and you will only see this amp. on all scnes.

    I play it with a Rickenbacker 4003 and a Fender Jazz Bass Aerodyne. I do not like the low active, sounded too "clean" too "round", etc ... The sound is really fat bass and the player, not the amp.

    I dj jou on a lot of bass amps, lamp, no lights, hybrids, etc ... and he has a magic ct: it gives the impression of having a Expender / compress Intgr in the gain of pre-amp, thanks to the circuit lamps. The dynamics rsulte impressive.

    So, apart from occasionally having to strange effects or a good saturation, the head ncessite does not affect to sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I did that for several days, but I had the opportunity to dj to play it several times in the past is what made me feel like given the acqurir. I spare my EBS Fafner with no regrets. There is no comparison, they are heads diffrent with diffrent sounds, etc ... I also had the pass from Hughes & Ketner Quantum, and I have an old Trace Elliot combo with which I still play regularly. And I rgulirement the opportunity to play on other brands in concert o the hardware is shared as a Hartke or SWR. I'd like to try a set for a ide Orange complte on high-end bass amplifiers. But in fact, I do it again this choice without hsiter.

    For me, the SVT-CL is really the head of the bass amp. I use it with an SVT-410HLF, because larger firms can not fit in my car, I think I occasionally praise a 8x10 for large scnes.

    The ratio quality price is right, to the extent that even if a cheap score is an extraordinary product.

    The particularity the most fun of this amp for a bass player who plays in a rock band with guitar amps also have lamps is that of a sudden, they feel a little smaller ... Before you have it, I heard even more than me, and it's over.

    Finally, I finished with a bit of familiaris: this amp dboite mm ... it can not only have the best mark everywhere.

  • THE VERY BIG SOUND

    Ampeg Heritage SVT-CLPublié le 07/30/11 à 02:35
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    All Tube Amp 300 W. No need to present the SVT

    UTILIZATION

    One branch, and it sounds.

    SOUNDS

    This head is designed for bass players looking for a big rock sound, very round and precise, with good possibilities of harmonic color mediums.
    For polyvalece, FTAs, but left to choose between great sound and its rotten miles, my choice is quickly made.

    OVERALL OPINION

    After using for years a preamp tube Ampeg SVP pro (in Retube Sovtek LPS) coupled to a QSC RMX 850 amp, all alimantant 2 ampeg speakers (4x 10 "and 1 x 15") I found that my system lacked low. SVT with Legacy, I found I was looking for his last years: it's round, warm, and perfectly intelligible in the studio, even when......

    A highly recommeded, although cete head is very very expensive for my taste and very very heavy, even untransportable (again, the head can not run in 8 ohms, so I must systhématiquement my two 8 ohm speakers to switch to 4 ohms. When you're a fan of the big rock, hard board to another amp when we tasted the SVT CL Heritage

    SOUNDS

    The sound is pretty ugly, inaccurate, which is not the case with good tube amps (B15, Bassman 100, Ampeg Vintage)

    OVERALL OPINION

    For me the classic series is a big scam, although there is power, then trace elliot combo compared to the studio we made repeated wow, but the sound has nothing to do with true Ampeg head with a True oldest 8x10 cabinet.
    Here is the sound card, the famous warm grain tube is mostly psychological, I find it rather aggressive and ugly, nothing to do with the roundness of an old SVT (with baffle that goes with it of course).

    Also impossible, although proposed, connecting the head on a 4x10, finds himself on his narrow, not low, medium even more unpleasant.
    The drive is horrible, it almost looks like a bad simulation, and this is not the lamps that were tired because I tried several.

    I end by saying that in SVT there is not much good, except maybe the SVT-VR (much more expensive), provided to plug a real 8x10, not the classic.

    EDIT:
    Attention!! This amp HAS NO EFFECTS LOOP, I can allow myself to say out loud because I have even tried plugging in pedals and got nowhere. Let me explain:

    Excerpts from the manual:

    "POWER AMP IN: This jack accepts a signal to Be Sent to The Power amp and SLAVE OUT jack. Using this jack breaks From The Signal The Path That Was Present at the PREAMP OUT jack. This Can Be Used as a post-master patch point ".

    it says that when you plug the jack into the input "power amp in", we cut the output signal "preamp out", so far it confirms once more that the preamp out and power amp in NOT EFFECTS LOOP,

    So if you plug something into the power amp in, preamp out the switches off.

    Moreover, the only time I tried to put a purpose in what I believed to be wrong an effects loop, first no sound came within the effect because the "power amp in" was connected and thus disables the "preamp out", and secondly, when I pressed the footswitch I got a big plop into the amp! And yes! As this is not an effects loop the sound is not treated and goes directly into the power amp, which constantly sends 300 watts (from a tube power amp operates in constant power and that it does not handle the volume with the gain and master, the master is a preamp gain in the end, moreover it's called peavey in post-gain "on guitar tube amps). So the little clicking noise becomes a big CLIQUEUHHHHH we hear very well, although it bore the mix!

    So all the effects (if one puts) are connected before the amp!

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be easier, gain-bass-midrange-treble mirfreq-master-ultra-ultra low hi
    The manual is quite clear, it gives examples of highly interesting settings, which are a sort of base.
    Whatever the setting we have a killer sound when the bass played into the road. All this amp already noon tampers with a lot of other brands.

    Edit: Try these settings 2pro SVT, the SVT VR, the SVT 4PRO finally rummage manuals big amps ampeg, look at the frequency of action of knobs and try! Again have a good sound is easy, have a seriously rotten is extremely difficult. Whatever the setting the sound is good. All sounds are possible as long as we do not want to sound cool!
    To tell you I even tried "random settings" turning a blind eye and doing anything with the knobs (except gain and master if we finished deaf) bah spend all sounds (finger into play at least) the only setting that I found really bad is when you completely cut 200Hz, the sound is poor.

    SOUNDS

    This amp fits perfectly with what I play, ie: metal, rock, funk, reggae, blues.
    The sound is quite heavy, it is bold, vintage, this is not an ultra clear, the bass is very powerful compared the SVT 3 Pro is an amateur in bass. on the other hand should not ask him to have a crystal clear crystal clear, it is not its radius. We can slap and have a sound crazy, but must not seek or style SWR TecAmp (normal you may say, no one buys AMPEG to SWR or TecAmp). So for slapeurs absolutely crazy to try before you buy, the slap goes well but must love the grain in slap ampeg.
    I play it with a bass warwick corvette $ $ 5 string, the sound is really great! I change the sound by changing the combinations of coils and pickup balance, and fiddling with the active preamp switchable bass.
    The manual settings are nice, but as said above, I do not hesitate to watch those of other Ampeg heads.
    I pumped back to rock rock setting of the SVT 2PRO, it is perfect, I adapt as necessary for the slap.
    Otherwise sometimes I also picnic setting "Jaco" to the SVT 4PRO.
    For metal I use a setting very aggressive with big bass (plus the ultra low on), cutting the 450 Hz, 3.2kHz and boosting the amount the 5kHz to 3 / 4 view has merits. (No Ultra Hi initiated and tweeter baffle cut) with highs of my bass at the bottom. I sound Canibal Corpse Alex Webster And that makes him hard on the metal! You mean well, and you have a real role that goes beyond being an extension in the bass guitar, because you make grunting in high mids that the guitars can not do, and everyone hears exactly what you play both the musicians that the public (who for once in metal point your game without you having had the needs of passages dedicated to "hey hears this sound crazy?"
    I played this amp with a 410 Warwick, the sound is really great, quick with the 610 ampeg a friend, showing her super huge, and now I can play it on my Ampeg 410HLF, and there is the slap!! To play this head with a 5 cord there is no better speaker, and yes it is the only speaker who goes down to 28Hz AMPEG!!
    Sound killer simply, I stayed bay mouth, I finally discovered what really SVT CLASSIC!
    The rest of the top 810 on the head which I tried in stores even if it descends so low frequency that it has its legendary Ampeg more than any other speaker, but I have stairs ...



    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months, I had some small problems of power tube, I've changed and I properly set the bias properly and I had to put a sheet of foam between the flight case head and the baffle to avoid microphonics (I had the microphone as a speaker and a warwick 411 pro ampeg 410 HLF, the 610 ampeg no microphonics as it descends in the least serious, no doubt)
    I was amused to replace the original Sovtek in V1 by a JJ / Tesla ECC83, and there is the large class, the sound is warm wishes.
    Before having this head had a head on which I plugged warwick an EBS valve drive coupled to a boss and a BBE Sonic GEB7 to maximize the ringing lamp, but it has good light years from that day 'have it now.
    I sold all my belongings that I kept my first bass (huge emotional value), my warwick, the amp head and cabinet. And I just all the sounds I'm looking for, the sound is really incredible and we did not adjust to 36,000 tips! More questions pollute by sound effects except maybe a DBX compressor rack if it is considered as an effect.
    What I like most about this amp is that is all-tube, and has a master and a 5 position switch for midrange frequencies unlike the SVT VR.
    SVT 2pro I liked too, but given the overheating problems it faces, I preferred to ensure taking the SVT Classic.
    And also something silly, but, I love the "furniture" of the SVT Classic is not like the pro series or the amps are rackent amps sound like, there was the feeling of having a real amp scratch and not like the feeling of having taxed the amps in the sound:).
    What I like least is the weight (40kg) without it really bothers me not because I'm tough and there jeune.Au least you can say "hmm it's solid" recess is an anvil this amp:).
    I bought used for Euro 1340, I was fine because fears-that I did not know too much tube amp so any fishy thing I saw the price in stress, but I 've learned to adjust the bias (pulvo thank you:)) and I learned to guard against microphonics. This amp gives off a feeling of strength, I think it will last me a long time, apart from the lamps to be changed after a while. I do it again without hesitation that choice so the sound is excellent for what I play!
