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."

So you’ve searched high and low for the perfect bass amp, and have all but given up, because your dream amp is maybe just that, a dream. You know, the one with a zillion watts, and gobs and gobs of tone. It really does exist, you just haven’t played through it yet—meet the SVT-6PRO!
Ampeg’s SVT-6PRO combines all the beautiful tone of tubes with the solid-state reliability of a MOSFET output stage, to provide massive output and a virtually unlimited tone palette. An onboard 4-Band Semi-Parametric EQ section gives you +/-18dB of adjustment per band, so you can dial in even the most subtle tonal nuances. And the power amp section delivers a whopping 1100 watts RMS at 4 ohms! SVT-6PRO also features built-in Compression at the input stage, and a Tube Voltage control for adjusting the response of the power amp driver tubes.
The SVT-6PRO is designed for the serious player who demands the ultimate tone-shaping machine, in a convenient, high-powered, rackmount package. Just ask Tom Hamilton (Aerosmith), Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck/Ima Robot), or Garry Beers of INXS, and they’ll tell you why the Ampeg SVT-6PRO is the top choice of professional bass players the world over.
