    Used Ampeg SVT-2Pro for sale. This is the rackmount version of the SVT-CL head, 300W all-tube power. It's one of the "grey face" USA models. According to the Serial Number and dating information I found in my "History of Ampeg" book, the MFR date is May 2003 and this amp was MADE IN THE USA!

    I bought this amp in early 2007 and I have used it here and there for shows, but not very much as I came to prefer my GK 2001RB instead for live/practice use. I used it at a show on 6/23/2008 to play it one last time before selling it and the soundman said it sounded killer.

    Cosmetically it's a 7/10. The big cosmetic defect is that it's missing one of the front handles and the one that's left is bent slightly. Functionally the amp works 100% and is gig-worthy. Here are two quick videos of me playing this amp in my backyard studio:

    Excuse the playing, obviously. :) I just wanted to demonstrate functionality.

    Since it was dark, here's a shot with flash from the same perspective:

    I am unsure about the age of the tubes as I'm not the first owner but I haven't had any problems with them sonically. I removed the lid when I bought the amp and saw that the power tubes are Sovteks.

    Asking $825 plus shipping.

    If you have an offer, a question, want more pics, etc. feel free to PM me.

  4. Are these really spec'd out the same as the SVT-CL?

    True, I guess it really depends on the definition of spec'd out. It's the same power rating and all-tube design (which was what I was thinking) but the preamp has extra features like the drive knob, the graphic EQ, etc. (the the -CL does not.)

    I think there might be an extra tube in the preamp in the pro

    That sounds right... and it's probably tied to the drive knob.

    if it was slightly lower i'd certainly consider it... i've had my eye on the SVT-4 pro for awhile and this could do as well.
