A totally modern, hybrid version of the famous SVT.
The tube preamp section of the Ampeg SVT-3PRO Series Head re-creates the great bass tone that made the original SVT the most respected bass amp of all time. The power section is solid state with a toroidal transformer that generates less noise and magnetic interference. Delivers 450W @ 4 ohms and has an arsenal of tone-shaping tools: 3 bands of tone, a 5-position mid selector, 9-band graphic EQ, plus low and high boosts. Other pro features include input peak LED, input pad and bright switch, mute function, tuner out, variable line-out level, time-delayed turn on, DC-supplied filaments, and variable fan speed. 2U rackmount.

Comments about Ampeg SVT-3PRO Series Head:
I was concerned when I bought this that it would not be as fat and warm as my SVT2PRO all tube unit. I took it to a rehearsal and plugged into an old Kustom 2x15 cab that I had used with a Kustom head a couple of years ago. I recalled that with the old Kustom head the sound was fragile and thin. Not so with the SVT3PRO driving those 15s! Fat, warm and classic Ampeg tone! That weekend I ran it into a Warwick 1x12 cab and had much the same results. Then last night into an Avatar 4x10 in a loud rock band. Turn up the mids and highs, and fatness morphs into cutting Ampeg grit. Oh yeah... My only knock is that the pots have those wimpy plastic shafts and the knobs feel pretty flimsy as a result. Should not be an issue in the rack as the knobs are set back far enough to prevent damage.
