    First I’d like to start with a brief backstory.
    I have tried many amps in my Journey playing bass and found my peace playing out of Mesa Rigs.
    I have played AMPEG modern SVTs and while they were nice, There was never a wow factor.
    Just yesterday I had an opportunity to try out a 1978 AMPEG SVT And now I know "Where" all the talk is about.
    It seems to be some kind of majestic amp that tailor’s to the sound that you’re after. I can adjust without compromise if that makes sense.
    I am now a believer and new owner of a 1978 AMPEG SVT Black line edition.
    It wasn’t one of those insanely killer deals that people seek out.In fact, I paid a small fortune for it but I did it with a grin knowing that I got a tone that I have Yet to find till now and that’s priceless.

    Congrats. It really is one of those things you have to experience to understand.

    Like Zappa said: "Talking about music is like dancing about architecture."
