Just bought Ampeg SVT-II (non pro) love it!

  1. I had an SVT-II years back and sold it to finance some other gear. Since then I have kicked myself daily til now. I found one at a decent price ($750).
    This thing is the ****! Even better than I recalled. The tone is nutty. Anyone else have one of these?
    I had considered getting an SVT-IIPro but had heard people complain about the protection circuitry actually causing failures (how ironic). I have no personal experience with the SVT-IIPro, however, the SVT-II is by far my favorite compared to other Ampegs I've owned :V4-B (vintage), SVT ('72), and one of the solid state Ampegs (SVT200T)
    It's tone is like my old '72, but way less noise, and better eq flexability. I also like the rackmount thing for protection in the band trailer.
    I'm curious why I don't hear more people raving about these.
     
  2. I have an SVT Pro II, and I love it. I imagine yours sounds quite similar. Congragulations. I'm currently only using a 115 with it, but that may change soon. Ampegs rule!
