FOR SALE: Ampeg SVT-4 pro


Recommended Posts

I am selling this because I have lined up the purchase of an Ampeg SVT-2 pro.

It is in near perfect condition apart from some slight damage to one of the handles, but that obviously doesn't affect it's sound.

I have used it for gigging over the last year or so, but have kept it in tip-top condition and is essentially in the same condition I bought it in.

I am looking for 650-700 for it ideally, but open to realistic offers.

The Frequency control allows you to select the center frequency for the Midrange control, giving you five distinct voicing options for the Midrange. And if thats not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to fine-tune your soundor use it to set up a footswitchable second channel with a volume boost for your bass solo.

SVT-4PRO is designed for the player who wants SVT tone and performance (with a few modern enhancements) in a convenient, high-powered, rackmount design. With a huge and diverse group of artist endorsements, including Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel/King Crimson), Steve Bailey (Bass Extremes), and far too many others to list here, the SVT-4PRO is a clear favorite among professionals. In the world of high performance bass amps, the Ampeg SVT-4PRO has what it takes to really define your sound."

Indeed it is!

Wanted a solid surge protector for my rig.

Especially with the amount of power the SVT-4 pro generates

are they expensive? have you got a link? The Mesa is temperamental as fuck and pretty much only runs when its straight into the wall because of the stupid amount of tubes.
