From my collection of vintage Ampeg amplifiers, I am (reluctantly) offering for sale this beautiful 1975 Ampeg SVT bass amp. This amp has been thoroughly tested from input jack to output jack and has been brought to 100% of Ampeg's factory specifications and works as new. All of the filter capacitors have been replaced with USA made OEM caps, including two multicaps, made on the original Mallory tooling, as well as USA Sprague Atoms. All bias and coupling capacitors were also replaced with OEM equivalents. Every resistor was measured and tested and any that were found to be out of tolerance were replaced with OEM carbon film resistors. All pots, jacks, tube sockets and switches were cleaned with Caig DeOxit. The preamp and driver tubes are NOS USA tubes and the outputs consist of a matched sextet of USA GE 6550A's that test as new. The bias, drive stage and hum balance have been calibrated to factory specs. The cabinet's tolex is original and in very good condition considering that it is 34 years old. This amp also has a new heavy duty grounded AC cord.This amp is rated at 300 watts RMS and is considered the "King of All Bass Amps", and after plugging into it, after 2 seconds, you'll know why. In my opinion, these are the best sounding bass amps in the world and the amp to which all others are measured.
