    well, all of my ampeg cab restorations are complete so i thought that i'd take a pic of them all together for an Ampeg 'family' photo. i'd love to use this as a backline rig but it would take up the whole stage for my band. I have also serviced/restored every vintage head with all new filter caps and NOS USA tubes so every one of these rigs runs at factory spec. tomorrow, i'm going to plug them all in and do some A/B comparison tests.:

    (l-r: '75 SVT w/810, '07 SVT-VR w/610AV, '69 SVT w/V4 (4x12cab- four Eminence 2512-II's), '72 V4B & '74 V4 w/'71 V4 cab, '70 V4 w/'70 V4 cab & 1x15 EV15L cab, '63 B15N-w/12" JBL D120F). (not shown '74 VT22 and '72 VT-40)

  2. That, my friend, is quite a collection :)

    I look forward to the comparison sound clips.
     
  3. That is awesome! wow! :D

    Also, I never realised how small the B-15 was, it's tiny!

    thanks guys. BTW, my B15N is a really small one since it has the 12 inch cab (like a B12N). B15N's with the 15" cab are a bit larger.
     
  5. impressive!!!

    That collection would sound better if you had Tom B's carpet underneath.

    You need another B-15N on the left. You know, for symmetry. :D

    Looking Awesome John!

    Thanks for posting. I love me some silver grill Ampeg!
     
  9. Looks great!

    Fast question: if you got the call tonight to go play a big show for (insert famous artist here), and you were told you needed to bring a big stage rig, which setup would you grab instinctively?

    Jimmy has become addicted to pedals once again, it'll take him a while to come back to the amp forum and spot this thread! Maybe this SVT porn will tempt him back from the dark side. :D

    Beautiful, John ! By any chance could you post a larger version (or email one to me) of that photo ? It would make a great wallpaper for my computer.


    EDIT: In fact, you have a LOT of great classic gear. It would be cool to have a page on your website where people can download "wallpaper/screensaver" photos of your amps and basses. Might attract a lot more people to your site and help business too ! :)
     
  14. Beautiful...just simply beautiful...:cool:
