    Very reluctantly parting with my 2006 USA-made Ampeg SVT-VR rig. I am the original owner and this just isn't getting any use anymore now that I'm in a band that has adequate PA support. Everything is in excellent condition and works superb! All original tubes except V1 in the preamp which is a 12AX7 from a 1961 Hammond organ. I replaced the fan with a quieter model, the original is included and works fine. The amp already has the voltage modification performed so no shutdown issues. I had my local tech go over this a couple of years ago and he gave it a clean bill of health.

    I gigged with this rig maybe 10-15 times per year and never had the volume above the 10:00 position. The past 2 years I barely used it at all. Comes with a padded cover for the cabinet and a nonpadded cover for the head. As you can see from the pictures the tolex is in excellent shape, only a few scuffs at the bottom of the cabinet.

    I'm asking $1900 for the entire rig. Prefer a local sale but I'd be willing to drive a couple hours from the mid-Michigan area to meet someone.

    Update: Selling amp and cabinet separately. $600 local pickup only for the cabinet. $1350 plus shipping CONUSA ($80-$120 depending on location) for the amp.

    Yep, even with the volume at only 10:00 I would get complaints and that was at outdoor festivals!:p

    I wish I had seen this 2 weeks ago. I just shelled out for a Heritage head and Heritage810.

    I just dove into the all-tube world, too. And I'm in Mid-Michigan. Aargh!

    Monday bump!

    I've been getting inquiries about selling each component separate, so here are the options for the amp and the cabinet:

    Cabinet: $600 local pickup only.

    Amp: $1350 plus shipping CONUSA (will cost $80-$120 depending on what part of the country you're located). Paypal accepted.

    Keep in mind these USA SVT-VR models don't show up very often on here, maybe once or twice per year!

    Cabinet is sold and off the market. Closing this thread and starting a new one for the head.
