Ampeg SVT Classic Head and 1×15 Cabinet, 2008

Ampeg SVT Classic Head and 1x15 Cabinet, 2008

The Ampeg SVT Classic is based on the groundbreaking 300 Watt SVT tube amp line used by bands touring large festivals and areas from 1969. Prior to the SVT, very few amps could produce more than 100 watts. These amps are particularly prized by bass players. The public introduction of the SVT series, in 1969, was unexpected. The Rolling Stones were rehearsing for an upcoming tour, and all of their UK-model Fender amps were damaged due to power differences.

SOLD!!! Gibson GA79RVT Stereo Amplifier, 1966

SOLD!!! Gibson GA79RVT Stereo Amplifier, 1966

Here’s a Gibson GA79RVT Multi-Stereo combo amp, featuring two ten inch speakers in a wedge cabinet each powered by its own 15 watt amplifier. This model was introduced in 1960 as the GA-79 and upgraded with Reverb and Tremolo to the GA-79RVT in 1961, and the entire line was discontinued in 1967 when Gibson ceased amp production in Kalamazoo. On this example, the two 10-inch CTS speakers on this Gibson GA79RVT bear dates of the 8th week of 1966 – late February, and the Tolex covering is black faux-gator with a naturally faded silver/grey grille cloth.
