Powerful Performance Features

Like other amp heads in Ampeg's PRO Series, the SVT-7PRO sports professional features like a flexible five-position mid tone control, remote switching FX loop, and a built-in variable compressor. Moreover, versatile EQ options help you customize the SVT-7PRO's tone to suit your needs. Its preamp sports a JJ 12AX7 tube that feeds the unit's Class D power section, giving the SVT-7PRO loud presence combined with the warmth associated with vacuum tubes.

No Learning Curve -- It's Plug and Play

As far as ins and outs go, the power amp includes a direct output for recording, Speakon outputs for connecting the unit to your speaker cabinet, a headphone output for silent practice or pre-gig warmups, aux input, and a tuner output. All the basics are there in a straightforward layout. Ampeg's SVT-7PRO comes with removable rack ears so you can rackmount it if you wish.

Reviews From Buyers
I bought a SVT-CL from ZZOUNDS and received it in just a few days. I played in a band in the late 70's and 80's and always wanted this head as we are starting to play again and I can afford a SVT now. I was really excited about getting this head and could not wait to try it out. I really liked the sound of the SVT through my Ampeg 8x10 cabinet. My brother and I practiced for almost 2hrs the night I got my head and the SVT shut down. I turned it off for about 5 minutes and turned it on again and it lasted about 10 more minutes before it shut down again. I could not believe this amp only lasted for 2 hours. Contacted ZZOUNDS the next morning by email to tell them what happened. By early afternoon, ZZOUNDS emailed me a UPS return slip thatI printed and boxed the SVT up and sent it back that evening. I decided to get the SVT7PRO to replace the SVT-CL.(I just didn't trust the SVT-CL and the tube power after my short ownership) The next day I get a email from ZZOUNDS that my new head was in route to me...they did not even wait to see the SVT-CL I was sending back and check to see if I had dropped the head and broke it or abused it. Now that is customer service! ZZOUNDS takes care of their customers. I got the SVT7PRO in just a few days and really like it. To me it sounds as good as the SVT-CL. It sounds great for the style music we play(rock and roll, country). I have no complaints with this head. I have been playing this head for over a month now and no issues. I would recommend to everyone.
