    Possible deal on the table. You never know what can happen though :smug:

    This is a wonderful piece of gear.

    It is in Near Mint condition with a few issues.

    1. A slight tolex tear where the metal grill meets the tolex that covers the tube area. When I changed the preamp tubes I moved the Tolex back, it just needs glued down now.

    2. The -15db input jack is a tiny bit flaky and the regular input jack is 100% ok. Probably needs the jack replaced, if this doesn't get traded/sold soon I am going to call Ampeg and get the $10 part to fix it.

    3. Having never owned a SVT before, you can hear the fan running. I don't know if you are supposed to, but it's audible (not in the signal). When I tested the cab a Guitar Center when I bought it I used a SVT Classic as a test as well and the fan made noise, it just didn't seem as obvious due to store noise.

    That's it.

    It has a cool bias feature where if you replace the tubes, leave the amp for 20 minutes and adjust a knob to get the bias right (red light bad, green light good) makes retubing a breeze.

    It's got 6550 Sovteks in the power section, I just put all new tubes in the preamp section due to personal preference. I like the way JJ/Telsa tubes bring the amp to life. 2 JJ 12AU7 and 3 JJ 12AX7's were just replaced in the amp.

    YES IT IS US MADE. Not just designed.

    Solid trade on the table. Unless I got a 900 offer on this, it's gone.
