moosers's review - Ampeg SVT-1000

The Ampeg SVT 1000 is a solid state bass guitar amp head that delivers 1000 watts of power. It has a both a high and low 1/4 inch input in the front and a speaker cable output in the back to send this amp to your speaker cabinet. The setting controls are as follows - there are knobs for gain, bass, ultra mid, treble, effects mix, and one that is fixed to choose between different styles. It also has a master volume knob and a ten band graphic EQ.


The general configuration of the Ampeg SVT 1000 is straightforward and easy to follow, even though there are a good amount of parameters to control your tone. It is easy to get a good sound as the inherent tone is great and full of life. I don't have a manual for this, but it is quite easy to use and the average user shouldn't need one if you don't have one.


The sound quality of the Ampeg SVT 1000 is great for both recording and live shows. It is great for any type of music, but I use it mostly for rock and pop music. When I use this amp head with an Ampeg speaker cabinet and a Fender P-Bass or Jazz Bass, I always tend to get a great, full sounding tone. The wide array of parameters makes it possible to get a number of different tones for varying situations and applications.


I've been using the Ampeg SVT 1000 bass amp for about three years and it is one of my favorite bass guitar amp heads out there because of its ease of use and great sound. The price is pretty expensive, but it is really made for the professional looking to get one of the best bass amp heads out there. I can't say enough about the great products that Ampeg makes, and this is a prime example of their expertise when it comes to making bass amps.
