After constant searching of old threads, I've noticed that about 80% of the time, people never have anything too nice to say about the Ampeg SVT-CL. Most immediately invite the argument that "It's nothing like the original!", and they're right. It's a different amp, folks! Which is my source of this discussion. Although my stint with a CL was short, I found it to be an excellent amp with great tone and damn fine construction. Considering it's a totally different head than the original SVT and SVT-VR, what say you about the tone, construction, and viability of the Classic? No comparisons to the old SVT's and VR's, please!
