    Are there many SVT 100 Watt amps out there? What can you tell me about mine? I did not buy it "new"

    Preamp: 3 x 12AX7
    Power: 4 x 6550
    Single channel, two inputs
    6 knobs (V,MV,B,M,T,P) bs, gain switch
    mfg. 1986-1992

    This amp was a modified V5 amp from the MTI days and made into a bass amp. When SLM bought Ampeg they recieved a supply of V5 heads. They made a few small component changes in the preamp and had the SVT-100. none of the SVT-100's were built from scratch.

    The SVT-100t is a solid state amp, nothing in common with the SVT-100 except name.

    MTI took Ampeg production to japan in the 80's. SLM took over Ampeg in 1986 and brought the SVT production back to the USA but only made 500 SVT's under the "Skunkwords" department over the next 5 years."
