Ampeg SVP - BSP bass guitar preamp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by BoB/335, Sep 3, 2003.


  1. I take it these are not available new anymore. What would these go for used?
     
  2. I checked the Ampeg site, and it looks like it's still available new. Usually they put a discontinued banner across the screen if it's no longer available.

  4. Thanks guys! I thought I read on another post here that the SVP wasn't available anymore. Is this a good pre-amp and what would a used one go for?

  5. I've seen them go for 300-350 used. Not a bad deal. I think someone on TB was selling one, he offered to trade a BSP for my SVP-PRO. Not sure who had it.

    Sure, it's a good preamp! Used, about $300-350. Go to http://www.basstasters.com for preamp samples. There's some 'spensive boys there, but, dang, in a blind taste test, I still fall to the SVP as my fave. It's just sooooo... Ampeggy. Lots of good, familiar sounds in the thing, and a good set of features.
     
  7. Just missed one on ebay. Went for $335.00
     
  8. Okay, 8 years later... What would one of these mint condition rarities go for in 2011?

    depends on how many billy sheehan fans are in the market for one at any given time.
