    I've been trying to remember the selectable midrange frequencies on the old SVT's (Late 60's early 70's). I owned 2 a long time ago, and it seemed to me there were only 3 selectable freqs. on 'em. The new ones appear to have 5 selectable freqs. Appreciate your help.
     
  2. The old SVTs had three center frequencies, 200Hz, 800Hz and 3000Hz. The new ones do have five, but I'm not sure what frequencies they are.

    Hey Thanks! The newer SVT freqs are 220,450,800,1.6K, and 3K. Appreciate the help.
     
  4. No sweat. But I better correct the typo.....It's 220Hz on the old ones too, not 200 like I said before. D'oh.
     
  5. Thanks Mark,
    Mine just has 1-2-3 above the mid rocker. I was trying to figure the control out. At first it seemed only to work when the mid was boosted high.
    Now it seem to be interactive with the other tone controls.
    How does the center freq work?
    I wish I had an old manual.
