      Ampeg SVT-VR Vintage Reissue 300 Watt SVT Amp Head (481722)
Availability:  


A vintage reissue of the highly sought-after 1970s blue-line SVT head.

With the new SVT-VR, the Ampeg engineering and product development teams had one primary goal--get as close to the coveted tone of the classic SVT as possible. As a result, the preamp stage, power section, and even the rocker switches of the new SVT-VR emulate the exact signal path, tone, and vibe of the original.

The all-tube, 300W SVT-VR amplifier is driven by a total of 6 - 6550 power tubes for massive power and tone. In addition to the '70s style dials and rocker switches, the SVT-VR's preamp circuitry has been faithfully re-created to match the original.

  • 300W
    2-channel preamp
    6 - 6550 power tubes
    Original power amp output spec and tube complement
    Original preamp signal path

Ampeg SVT-VR Vintage Reissue 300 Watt SVT Amp Head

On May 1st, 2009, the Mackie, TAPCO, Crate, Blackheart and Ampeg websites will be updated with the addition of warranty URLs (e.g. www.mackie.com/warranty) expressing new A Stock warranty terms. These warranty URLs will go live on May 1st, 2009. Formerly, warranty periods for these LOUD brands appeared in a variety of locations – in product manuals (for Mackie and TAPCO) and on warranty cards and hang tags (for Crate, Blackheart and Ampeg). In order to streamline and clarify this process, Mackie, TAPCO, Crate, Blackheart and Ampeg warranty periods and terms will be communicated in full on the warranty pages. Any LOUD products purchased prior to May 1st will bear with them the manufacturer’s warranty as predates the new policy. Moving through this transition, in order for customers to obtain warranty service, both the sales receipt and a physical copy of the (older) warranty statement will be required by our Service and Support departments in order to issue Service Requests, etc. If the product was purchased on or after May 1st, 2009, but a physical copy of the older warranty terms is not presented, the new warranty terms and periods will apply. Meanwhile, the products that bear with them the new warranty periods (as reflected in the box contents of each product) are being tracked by serial #, and contain new warranty content referring customers to the appropriate brand website. The information below reflects the product warranty periods that will be effective on May 1st, 2009 for the Mackie, TAPCO, Crate, Blackheart and Ampeg brands: Mackie: A 3-year, nontransferable, inclusive warranty on electronics and a 2-year, nontransferable, inclusive warranty on drivers (where applicable) apply to loudspeakers (active and passive), power amps, powered mixers, and HR studio monitors.

  • THE BEST OF THE BEST

    As reviewed by randy wilson on 10/25/2010

    I had an original 70's blue line, back in the 80's and this new one sounds just as brilliant and punchy. I have tried them all, and nothing else even comes close, and it's worth every dime , so I say ,,right on A M P E G !!! Randy Wilson

  • 3rd Time Is A Charm

    As reviewed by Bruce on 2/9/2011

    I bought one of these in March of 2008 and absolutely, undeniably stand in awe of the tone and power delivered by this beast. It took Ampeg (Loud Technologies) 3 times to get me one that worked as advertised, but they did and I have had no problems since. They stood by the product and corrected the issue. I have it connected to an Ampeg 410HLF and the bottom end thunder it produces makes the other bass players in my neck of the woods jealous and green with envy. It is a set it and forget tool for working bass players.

The SVT Classic from Ampeg!
