The Bill Ward Weight Reduction Technique!
Not saying you are incorrect, but how do you know he did not use it in 1970? I just went back and listened to Paranoid album yet again and it sure sounds like an Ampeg Fliptop to me ().
I don't think Ampeg had a lot of influence in the UK back then. I've read that the Paranoid bass tone is a mix of clean DI and mic'd amp, with a Laney amp being the most likely candidate.
The Ampeg amps are visible in modern interviews with the band in the Classic Albums documentary. The B-15 is behind Tony Iommi while an SVT is visible behind Geezer. There is nothing to link these amps back to the original recording sessions, as they are effectively props.
Ampeg was starting to gain a foothold when Sabbath came out.
