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.
