I purchased this unit at Guitar Center, Hollywood. I paid $1499.99. The unit was rented by Linkin Park for a video shoot and returned without the factory box so they were sold at a lower price.
Pure power, hands down. This amp has a ton of juice and really drives a full stack. It also has that wonderfully warm tone that many palyers try to duplicate by the purchasing of pre-amps, and effects processors. No processor will ever duplicate the real thing. This is the best amp I have ever played through. I was sold on SWR equipment until by a recommendation when I was in the market for a new amp I was told to try out the SVT Classic. Man I was blown away. If you have the money this is one amp that will fulfill all your needs. Just look at how many players use ampeg, this will tell you the quality of thier products. They are also built very tough for years of use.
There is only one draw back to this unit. It weighs over 80 lbs. So if you are not willing to sweat moving your equipment this is not the amp for you.
Rock solid construction.
There is not an amp out there that can rival the sound that the SVT Classic is capable of putting out
What characteristics have motivated your choice?
Its size in relation to my ego.
1w/1m its sensitivity 100 dB making a sound monster.
For what purpose?
Rock, punk, the noise, stoner ...
What amp / What configuration?
I use a head Ampeg SVT-350H, it is not a CL but it already sounds great!
The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
I know ... it sounds good for rock, that I know.
The stereo image is good?
I know, I never had the idea of using a stereo output to walk independently 4HP 4HP top with the bottom ... it sounds good with a low mono rock, that I know.
The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?
Yes, but it also depends on where we place. It turns out that the animal develops, for the little that there is invited to sub impressive a good twenty meters frequencies so be aware tame the great outdoors. The highs are very slammin and you better avoid being in front of HP. I try to put my amp side and I avoid a lot of problems as well.
The dynamics are respected? ...
Yes, it seems.
How long have you use it?
3 years ago.
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Pros: It commands respect wherever he goes. All those who plug their head down above are delighted.
The -: it is not easy to master in some places and positioning will be crucial, as the EQ of the amp.
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No other model 8x10 inches. I've used a 410E and SVT body Hartke of the same type and must mount the amp to have the same level as 1w/1m sensitivities are much lower.
How would you rate the quality / price?
Bah it's honest. Approximately € 1,000 for sound stupid like that new.
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
REFERENCES A that I had to try!
A Bafil designed for large scenes and studio ambitious!
I use it with an SVT head vr nourricire his mother!
The neutrality I hates that word.
The sound of the stack respects, unveiling the deficiencies in the head branch is on!
The important point about the 8X10 is the projection of sound that is not right and Reveals ALTR same shelf with a depth of important!
I use it for two years.
Apart from its quality and manufacturing (robustness Evident)
I love the look (fridge) passing my guitar for a little tarlouse sound!
Like everyone I have problem to carry this monster and I'm not a fan of the concept (the devil on two rear wheels) of displacement ". For two trips are to transport ncssaires the head in flight case and the cabinet room of the van.
