    Yamaha Announces Acquisition of Ampeg We'll see what comes out of this, but with Yamaha's interest in the amp field lately, I'm hoping this is good news. There are a couple of Ampeg amps guys use for stoner rock and clean blues - but the prices on the used market are insane. It will be...

    I got my Ampeg SVT-II Pro back from Dave Ryan, former SLM Ampeg builder, lucky enough that he still lives in St. Louis and works at a shop called Killer Vintage. We went through it, replacing all missing screws, tightened down the transformers that were loose, touched up some loose solder...

    Man I'm really on the fence, I can get either amp for $850-900 buckers shipped, but it's a really fuckin' hard decision here. The more I read about which one is better the harder the choice becomes!! :scream2: They are both about the best ones you can find, the ii pro is early blue letter...

    Hey guys, Looking for people with experience with both of these amps in a touring situation. We know ampegs die a lot but we hope the newer ones fixed that issue. The mesa has a history of overheating, not sure if that's fixed in the 2013's. It will get run hard twice a week at practice and...

    For sale is my Tech21 VT Bass pedal with speaker sim switch. It is in excellent shape and was only on my pedal board for a month before I bought a real Ampeg (and made it obsolete). I can't find the tin anymore so this is pedal only. $105 shipped CONUS only.

    Got it from GC's used section for 399. I'm pretty sure someone took the EV out and replaced it with a random 12". The combo isn't closed, so I'll stick with my Lopo w/2 Eminence v128's. It could definitely use a re-tubing, preferably with some HG Tung-Sol's 12ax7's in whatever slots apply...

    Selling this on behalf of our bassist. It's done maybe 25-30 gigs with us since he got it, and he's taken good care of it. Works flawlessly. Comes with the shallow Gator 2U rack pictures. £350 + shipping ONO. Refs: iTrader, eBay under 'BlankPlank91'

    Bassist in my band just bought the above, and it's never been revalved. It's running 3x 12AX7's in the pre, and a 12AX7 and 12AU7 in the power. Playing solely metal. I was gonna just suggest a full TungSol set, but hit me with your recommendations as I'm not clued up!

    This shits not selling locally on Craigslist, dicks keep trying to lowball me on the head. If your local come by and play the fuck out of it if you want. Ampeg SVT-4 PRO MADE IN THE FUCKING USA, not that piece of shit made in korea one that's like 400 watts less, and made by 9 year old...

    I have an Ampeg V-412TL cabinet upgraded with two Celestion Classic Lead 80s and two WGS British Leads (Classic Lead 80 clones), arranged in an X pattern. It's a rear-loaded, slant-front cab, very similar in construction to a Marshall 1960A. This is the matching cab for the Lee Jackson-designed...

    Anyone ever try one of these? Front-loaded 4x12 with some pretty intense bracing. A friend of mine has one that he's looking to sell, and I went to take a look at it last night...I was really impressed with how tight it sounded (we had a Vox Valvetronix head run through it, fairly loud, and...

    Longshot that anyone here knows, but I'm in the market for one and I've noticed that there is a different earlier looking model as well as the more common later model. More Common later one Earlier one Besides the aesthetic differences are these the exact same amp? Or is there a specific...

    Me testing out a prototype Ampeg GVT15H head w/ the GVT112E extension cab. Terrific sounding amp. I happened to nail what I thought was a pretty great representation of the "Brown Sugar" tone. Of course, the Stones used Ampeg VT amps in the 70s, so I'm not surprised. :) Learn more about these...

    In addition to my H&K Coreblade, I picked up Kevan's Vetta II & Ampeg is letting me test one of their prototype GVT15H & 1x12 extension cabs. Fun times. :yesway:

    Anybody have any experience with these amps? I found some for a decent price locally and before I go check them out I was wondering if any of you guys had any thoughts on them. http://leejackson.com/VL1002.htm I do know of one issue with the heater harness but apparently it's an easy and cheap...

    I just scored myself a vintage ampeg svt. Its from 69-72. there isn't a good way that i know of to get an exact year. I'm stoked as hell. he changed the from grill from the silvery one to match his crappy random cab that he had. he also changed the power cord to a grounded one. other than that...
