    I've got a SVT-100 chassis coming soon to restore. It's got 4 6550s and 3 12AX7s I think(the schematic from Ampeg should be here tomorrow or Friday).
    I was wondering if anyone had one or had pics of one because I'd like to build a head cab like the original.
    I think it's MTI era.

    And any other info on it would be appreciated.
    Thanks! :bassist:

    Hi Corwin

    I just picked up an svt-100 thats not working. Would you be able to send me a copy of the schematic? Id be willing to help you fix it if you need help as well.

    Regards

    Haha, yes it's fixed, and I gigged with it yesterday for the first time as a guitar amp for my church's 4th of July event. I pulled 2 of the 6550s so I could crank it louder through my Kustom 4X12.
    I've used it for bass a couple times and it works well for that too. It's basically a Marshall JCM800 2203 based amp. Just a few component differences in the preamp.

    My SVT 100 is I believe in need of repair. Tubes or caps or something. She is or seems to be really quiet. I my get a new set of tubes to try that first and go from there. Corwin81, if you can share the schematic that would be great! Pm me if you can help.
