    Hey everybody. I am getting ready to sell an Ampeg SVT II for a friend. It has two badges on the front. One says Premiere Edition and the other "167 out of 250" On the back it indicates that it's rated at 1000 watts. I assume it's a special edition amp. Can anybody tell me more about it? Couldn't find anything on the Ampeg website. Thank you.
     
  2. Max,
    These were a limited run back around 1994 I believe.
    They are similar to the SVT2 except that the LE had one extra 12AX7 preamp tube.
    Other than that it's pretty much the same amp.
    Call or write Ampeg with the LE number, I'm sure you can still get the owners manual.
    Great amp by the way. I am sure this is the one with 6-6550 power tubes. Amp should be rated at 300 watts.
