Amplifiers & Effects
Since 1946, Ampeg has been designing and building musical instruments and gear, but their strongest lines have always been amplifiers. From guitar and bass combos to versatile heads and preamps, there's an Ampeg amp to deliver everything from clean, jazzy sounds to overdriven rock tones. So whether you're an amateur or a touring pro looking for a vintage unit, classic reissue or cutting-edge stack, you're sure to find a range of tempting options on this page. Ampeg amps ensure your sound is heard, loud and clear.
Are you looking to add tonal variety to your bass performance? If so, the Ampeg SCR-DI Bass DI Preamp with Scrambler Overdrive is a solid choice. With its ultra-hi and ultra-lo tone shaping options and scrambler overdrive to add tube-like grind, this preamp is a great tool for adding range to your live sound. It even has built-in headphone-out and aux-in connectors for practicing silently, and it's compact enough to fit right in with the other stompboxes on your pedalboard.
If you're a guitarist, you're also in luck. Ampeg has designed and built lots of quality guitar amplifiers throughout the years, including combo amps like the Ampeg SS-140C. This 1980s amp has two independent channels, reverb and chorus controls and a pair of 12", 70W speakers. It's portable too, making it ideal for jamming and practicing anywhere.
For the serious bassist, the Ampeg Heritage SVT-CL 300W Tube Bass Amp Head with 8x10 800W Speaker Cab is a great on-stage option. This reissued classic head features three bands of tone, a five-way mid selector, plus ultralow and high boosts for the ultimate variety of possibilities. Plus, the cabinet is packed with 8 custom 10" U.S. Eminence drivers to deliver legendary Ampeg tone.
These are only a few examples of the many amplifiers Ampeg has on offer. From the likes of Mike Inez of Alice in Chains to Liam Wilson of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band, pros everywhere rely on Ampeg amps to deliver their unique tones. Variety is key with Ampeg, so there's something for every player in any price range.
