[Musikmesse] Ampeg SVT-7 & 8 Pro
Ampeg announced two new heads within the SVT-PRO Series: Both new heads (SVT-7PRO, SVT-8PRO) deliver "high wattage, tonal flexibility and lightweight design" in rack-mountable units.
The SVT-7PRO pumps out a kilowatt of Ampeg tone in a design that weighs in at 15lbs. The SVT-7PRO offers a flexible 5-position mid tone control, remote switching FX loop and an onboard variable compressor. The tube preamp boasts a premium JJ 12AX7 that feeds the weight-defying Class-D power section.
The SVT-8PRO is designed to deliver up to 2500W of RMS power in a compact, lightweight design. The all-tube preamp, Class-D power section and classic Ampeg tone controls are designed to "create a compact powerhouse that fits in two rack spaces without sacrificing one bit of legendary Ampeg tone," the company says.
Pricing & Availability
The Ampeg SVT-7PRO is now available globally and has a U.S. MSRP of $1119.99, a list price of € 799 and is £816 including VAT. The SVT-8PRO has estimated availability in Q3, 2010 and will have a U.S. MSRP of $3359.99, a list price of € 2299 and is £2349 including VAT.
