I LOVE THIS AMP!! The tone is pure Ampeg, and it is certainly easy enough to move around. I would consider this the ultimate low volume amp. I have tried it in my classic rock band, and it certainly will not hold up against loud electric guitarists and a drummer who is pounding away. However, if you are in an acoustic based band, the amp shines. Moreover, if you are practicing at home, this is all the amp you need. It also has a great look, and Ampeg was quick to replace the cabinet when the tolex started peeling off. I buy and sell equipment constantly, but I will not sell this one. I had even toyed with the idea of getting a second one so that I could bring it out as a gig rig.

When I first tried this out I thought I was awesome in every way. It was full and seemed to sound just like the other Ampeg stacks. Then I turned up the volume and it was messy and unfulfilling. I was completely blown away by it's apparent lack of a good tone when the volume is way up. I went home and researched this amp and found that it is solid state. If you want the Ampeg sound and can't afford a big stack then I guess this would be a good option as long as you don't gig or practice with drums. I love Ampeg but, compared to the rest of their line, this is garbage.

Awesome

By Michael Thorson

from Janesville, Wisconsin

Playing my new Fender Bass into this amp sounds amazing. I was a little worried that it might not be loud enough - was I ever wrong about that. This thing can get VERY loud! I love the retro look too. You basically cannot go wrong with this bass stack I highly recommend it!

Tight, light and ampeg

By Matt Peterson

from St. Paul, MN

If you only read one part of this review, know I love this amp for just about any reason you can think of. I purchased this amp and cab about a year ago and I am still in love with it. I bought this amp to replace a 30 year old Peavy 15". The first difference is that I can lift each piece of this set with one finger. It is INCREDIBLY light, especially after playing through that anchor of a Peavy. After I got over that, I set it up and started playing. Holy cow - the difference between two 10s and one 15 is amazing. The sound is SO tight, even compared to the newest Peavy (which really didn't sound much different from my old one). The tone is responsive and the deep end is powerful. It has an XLR out which is nice if you are gigging and need more power. I have been really satisfied with this setup and the only reason I have gone XLR out is because the sound guy wanted more control. After playing around a few music stores (GC included) I would say that in this price range, you can not pick up a better, new amp. Check it out and enjoy!

Better amp than you would be led to believe!

By Sean

from Emmaus, PA

I own this stack and I must say that it is my "go to" setup for recording (mic'd with an EV RE-20 and direct out to the console with both channels going through a Presonus BlueTube) and practice. The limiter acts a bit weird someimtes but will definitely save your cabinet if you get too agggressive with it or play a 5 or 6 string bass. Now here's the best part: I blew an output tube in my SVT-CL head and had a gig coming up so I hooked the Micro-VR up to my 610HLF cabinet and wouldn't you know... it sounded AWESOME!!! This amp really saved the day and almost sounded just like my SVT-CL.

Ampeg, Really...Yes Really

By Boom Boom

from NC

I reviewed this in August 2010 when I wanted one but was not ready to buy. I bought this Ampeg Micro VR stack this weekend and can't seem to stop playing it. Any settings that I use sounds great and is all Ampeg. I cannot emphasize the pure Ampeg tone enough. It is exactly what I wanted. I got this from the GC in Raleigh. I have to brag on Patrick and Franco. They were most helpful and went way out of their way to be of service (and they were very busy that day). The down side to this unit is the tolex on the cabinet tends to peel off, but some wood glue fixed it quickly. Again the sound is awesome but in larger venues you will have to XLR to the PA, but I dont consider that a downside as we run it all through the PA anyway. Other than what I've mentioned I believe you will love this set-up if the Ampeg sound is what you like. One final thought: this is a pleasure to carry around...sooo light!

Exactly what I was looking for!

By Nemiah

from Huntsville, AL

My first experience with the Micro Svt and SVT-210AV was in the studio. I used it to record slave tracks and was floored by the tone and volume packed in this small package. A few months after my studio work I went out and got one for myself! I have been playing this amp & cab daily for about two months now. I have been using Ampeg bass amps and cabs for many years. My stage rig is a SVT-CL and SVT-810. You can't beat the sound of the big rig but it is not easy to lug around everywhere I go. The Micro Svt and SVT-210AV come close in tone and has surprising volume for it's size and weight. I have also owned other Ampeg solid state amps such as the SVT-450. In my opinion the Micro sounds better than and other Ampeg solid state amp I've ever had. It won't hold up to guitar players with loud half stacks and a heavy drummer. But it will hold up with normal to light drummers and guitarist that use combo amps. I mainly use it as a practice amp. However, with the DI it can very well be used as a live rig with a loud band (Ofcourse, with the help of monitors and PA) This amp took me a few minutes to dial in the right sound. Now that I have learned the amp, I have no problems dialing in the sound I want. The control features are basic but very much adequate (similar to most Ampeg amps). With the limiter on you can get some good volume without worrying about blowing your speakers with clipping. The amp and cab handle my four strings perfectly. My 5-stingers sound ok too but the low end quality and capability starts rolling off below the low E. I would recommend this set-up to about any bass player.

Great little stack!

By lasthuman

from Emmaus, PA

I bought this when I wanted to down-size my rig. My big rig was an Ampeg SVT-CL and 6x10HLF cabinet. This little amp captures the essence of tone that my big rig had with warm tone and great reactance. There is no horn in the cabinet If you need a bit more volume you can stack on a 2nd cabinet and have a transmission line array with great projection and volume. There are plenty of features without going excessive and it looks great. I'm taking away 1 star because the tolex started peeling on my cabinet 2 weeks after I got it. Ampeg is happy to replace it but said it will take 3-5 weeks to ship me a replacement!

Awesome Ampeg Tone

By Boom Boom

from NC

I've been waiting for more people to review this but I guess it's up to me!!! I was in the Durham, NC store and plugged this in to several Fender basses. This Ampeg is has nailed the sound of its SVT big rig at a fraction of the weight. Wattage is lower but the sound and tone is definitely there. It can be used in small to mediums venues easily. Just run it through the PA in larger areas. In larger areas the PA is what you are hearing anyway. What I'm trying to impress is don't be dismayed by the wattage because the tone is the most important part. I compared this with an Acoustic 450 combo and the Ampeg won. The Micro VR had more useable volume at higher levels than the Acoustic which had way too much hiss. The Ampeg was clear almost to maximum volume while you couldn't use the Acoustic even at half volume. So what good are watts if you can't use them! Oh yeah, and it won't break your back or your bank.

Small but MIGHTY!!!!

By Aaron

from Lincoln, Ne

I'm a big fan of ampeg and all the stuff they put out and when i saw it at guitar center i was so excited to try it! Grabbed a fender off the wall plugged in and saw just what this can do. It is only about 2 and a half feet tall but can get as loud as you need without having to carry around a hundrad pound stack. Totally recomend it for local musicians
