MGR/Guiseppe's review"Ampeg SVPCL"

Ampeg SVP-CL
I've played for approximately 30 years, gigging for about 12 of those (including my current band). My roots are in blues rock, blues, and 70's fusion & R/B.

I got it from BAss Central, new. I got it for about $450, if I remember correctly.

Although I don't stray much from "my" tone, the flexibility to get just about any tone you'd want is there. Huge, full, tube tone, with the booty to back it up.

controls feel just a little light-weight. The markings on the "Ultra Low" control are marked a little askew. I've talked to several other SVPCL's that had the same thing on theirs.

Construction and quality are first-rate, I've gigged this thing hard for a year, with it hardly even sweating.

I truthfully don't know why I'd buy another amp. This is the solid rock tone genie in a bottle.
