Theres a reason this amp is a best sellerit delivers the goods! With up to 450 watts and the sweet sound of tubes, the SVT-3PRO is the top choice of rockers and funkmeisters around the globe.

The center frequencies are 220Hz, 450Hz, 800Hz, 1.6kHz and 3kHz. And if thats not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to custom tailor your sound even more.

The SVT-3PRO is designed for the player who wants SVT tone and performance (with a few modern enhancements) in a convenient rackmount design.

The Calgary Main store rented me one of these, an SWR and a Traynor YBA200-2 and I had a Yorkville XS400. The Ampeg won, but I couldn't afford a new one. Rob got me a terrific deal on a used one. It sounds great, I like a more mellow tone with a little overdrive, and this one did it.

Owned a 400W Yorkville previous to this purchase. Sound is amazing on the Ampeg....lots of sound contour available. Even when the limiter is pushed you still get that quality Ampeg sound. Highly recomended for those who just don't need 800W!!!! LOL
