This classic bass head produces the iconic 'stadium bass sound', heard on countless records as well as on stage.

The Ampeg SVT II has long been a favourite for pro Bass Players in the studio and on stage. It offers a great combination of sound and volume with exceptional reliability for a valve-based amp head. 

The SVT II is a tone beast capable of sculpting a sound for virtually any application while also adding its specific Ampeg imprint - it sounds solid, thick and round.

Effects vary with each cabinet, however, the SVT II is generally used with a matching SVT410HE 4x10 or SVT810 8x10 bass speaker cabinets.
