Description

A vintage 1978 Ampeg SVT tube bass amp in great cosmetic condition. Considered by many to be the greatest bass amp ever produced, this example is all original and quite clean. The rocker switches are all functional and still have good tension. This SVT is equipped with a strong sextet of Magnavox-branded G.E. 6550 power tubes plus a great selection of vintage American preamp tubes. This amp has been cleaned, tested, and biased. It is fully functional and sounds huge.
