Restoring a '71 Ampeg SVT Head, need help

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by CzarMike, Dec 18, 2003.

  1. I have recently puchased a '71 Ampeg SVT off Ebay. It's at my tech getting a recap, retube and tune-up. I'm trying to find sources for cosmetic parts and misc things to restore some life to it. What are the best sources for original parts? The only places I've found are www.fliptops.com and www.vintage-amp.com
  2. Fliptops is about as good as it gets. Don't have much dealings with the other you named.

    What kind of parts/pieces do you have in mind needing?

    Depending on the parts needed you may have to buy a parted-out spare (again from ebay). Occassionally misc. SVT parts pop up.
