My favorite amp and the one I've used almost exlusively for about 15 years. I have had zero problems since I bought it, believe it or not. Nice heavy sound.

anything else?

Comments about Ampeg SVT-2 Pro Series Amp Head:

I own this head and use it with a hlf410pro cabinet.....and I'll never change it. Do you play r'n'r, blues, metal, pop, emo, alt-rock, kraut-rock, noise etc? This should be your head. Its weight doesn't change his value. Warm, aggressive, its sound seems to come from deep underground. All tube amps never die. I never had problem with mine. Old tubes still sound great. I played it with J-bass, P-bass, pre-Ernie Ball Musicman Sabre, Rickenbacker doesn't always sounds like the best.

Comments about Ampeg SVT-2 Pro Series Amp Head:

AMAZING. This thing is what the heading says. Loud, sounds better then any other amp in the world, easily, and heavy, all things that show a good bass amp. The tone on this thing is so amazing, any sound you want, and unlike a solid state amp, this thing rocks. It fills any where with sound like that, any sound you want you can get. Unlike the other review, I found mine to be so reliable. I think I've dropped it down 12 stairs and it didn't get a dent and only sounded better, maybe his was a defect, the tubes in mine are running smoothly. I don't think there's a scratch on it, Unless mine is a super version, I'm guessing his was a defect, so don't worry, this thing will not fail you.

Comments about Ampeg SVT-2 Pro Series Amp Head:

As much as I love the tone and power (but not the weight) of my SVT2 Pro, I've had the amp serviced 6 times in the last year, including a whole new set of power tubes, which was very expensive. The amp is running fine now but I always have that nagging worry in the back of my head that it's going to break down mid gig. When you spend this amount of money on an amp, and especially from a name like Ampeg, you expect a lot more reliability than this. To summarize, the SVT2 Pro is easily the best sounding amp I have ever owned, with all the features I need, but it has also proved to be the most unreliable and costly amp I have ever owned too. I would advise people to find an old SVT II head instead. Not as many features but far more reliable.
