Donald "Duck" Dunn (Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Stax recording legend)
"I always used B-15's in the studio on Stax Records. But it was Ampeg's 8x10's more than anything with my flat wound strings that drew me to Ampeg."

The harmonically rich sound and legendary performance of the Ampeg SVT are redefined in the SVT-2PRO. This powerful all-tube bass amplifier delivers 300 watts RMS of unsurpassed quality, reliability and tonal flexibility, and features a vast array of contemporary enhancements. Although other companies have tried to capture the classic all-tube sound of ’60s and ’70s Ampeg bass heads, no one can touch the SVT.
The SVT-2PRO is all about tone. Sure, you’ve got control over the bottom and top end of your sound, but the SVT-2PRO takes it a step further. The Frequency control allows you to select the center frequency for the Midrange control, giving you a choice of five distinct “voices” for the midrange. The center frequencies are 220Hz, 450Hz, 800Hz, 1.6kHz and 3kHz. And if that’s not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to custom tailor your sound even more. Or use the EQ to set up a footswitchable “second channel” for your show-stopping bass solo. The SVT-2PRO—unlimited tone, right there at your fingertips.
Designed for the player who wants SVT tone and performance (with a few modern enhancements) in a convenient rackmount design, the SVT-2PRO has a huge and diverse group of artist endorsements. With Chris Squire (Yes), Jason Newsted (Supernova), George Porter Jr. (The Meters), and far too many others to list here on board, the SVT-2PRO is a clear favorite. In the world of high performance bass amps, the Ampeg SVT stands head and shoulders above the rest.
