Svt Tone Suggestions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by dikger, Mar 3, 2008.

  1. I recently purchased an Svt A/V. I am told that it is the same thing as any 300 watt tube Svt, only it is an anniversery vintage model. Sound right? I am currently using a 5 string Spector and a 4 string Jazz. Any good tone setting suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Any other information would also be helpful. Thanks.

    master full up
    gain set to desired volume
    ultra lo and hi off
    bass 2 o' clock
    mid position 4, 3-4 o' clock
    treble 1-2 o'clock

  3. check in the pdf manual on Ampeg's site and it will give you several options for settings for rock, funk, country...etc..

    Gain: ~7 (for passive jazz bass w/flats)
    Ultra-hi/lo: off
    Bass: 6.5
    Mid Position: 1
    Mid: 6
    Treble: -4.5
    Master: 10
  5. IMO it depend greatly on what cab U R using. If it's a SVT810 I use a SVT2 into a Bergantino NV610 & my (non-master volume) amp settings are as follws -usually-

    Bass 4-5/10......... sometimes-depending on room I have tha bass even less-3 or 4/10
    Mid Pos. 4 .. 6/10
    Treble 6/10
    Both ultra hi/Low buttons OFF!!!!
  6. Thanks for the reply. I am using an Ampeg PR 410 hlf. I used to use the 810 but most times it's overkill. The 410 is plenty loud enough for the rooms that I play. Thanks again.
