Ampeg

collapse expand iconDescription

The Ampeg SGT-DI delivers an entire bass rig in one innovative stompbox. The SGT-DI combines Ampeg's legendary tube amp tones with a fully featured preamp and D.I. for creating and capturing your ideal sound. The SGT-DI is a revolutionary solution for bassists seeking vintage vibe and modern functionality.

Iconic Ampeg Tone With Enhanced Super Grit Technology

The SGT-DI enhances Ampeg's Super Grit Technology overdrive circuit with SVT and B15 amp simulations for a range of gritty tones from subtle breakup to full-on distortion. Dial in just the right amount of drive to complement your playing style and cut through the mix.

Sweepable 3-Band EQ and Frequency Switches for Total Tonal Control

Shape your core tone with a versatile 3-band EQ featuring sweepable midrange frequencies from 200Hz to 5kHz. Ultra-Hi and 3-way Ultra-Lo switches provide additional tonal sculpting for a balanced low end and articulate highs. With this powerful EQ section, you can craft tones for any genre from classic rock to modern metal.

Variable Compressor Keeps Dynamics in Check

The built-in compressor allows you to tighten up your dynamics with the turn of a single knob. Apply subtle compression for evening out levels or increase for a squashed, pumping effect. The SGT-DI's compressor expands your tonal palette and ensures consistent volume levels for any live or recording situation.

Silent Practice, Recording and Gigging Capabilities

An AUX input allows you to play along with tracks for practice while the headphone output enables silent rehearsal anytime. The D.I. out provides a pristine signal for recording direct or re-amping later.

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.
