    Whether you're an ammatuer, or a pro, this guy belongs in your rack. The only thing that isn't perfect is the fine tuning of an EQ. However, if you are a serious player, you would know that a grapic EQ gives you just that. Since it has 2 effects loops, you can run a dual 15-band EQ through it(I use the DOD SR430QXLR). With those two joined up, you can match ANY sound you want and your creations are limitless. Best of the best in my book, I'll never use anything else.

    This amp is by far one of the best sounding for its price range. However it hasn't held up to the endurance that it should have. The one I purchased back in 2003 recently had a problem with the octaver volume pan bleeding into the circuit board cutting out the performance. Hard finding "Quality Repairman" in my area to do the warranty work and bring it back to life. I got mine back in worse shape than when I dropped it off. My back up amp is a Fender but its not near the great sound and power that I "use" to get with the SVT 5 PRO. Perhaps I got a lemon, like to have one that would at least make the 5 year manufacturer's warranty. Overall I really have enjoyed playing through this amp and will be sending it to the manufacturer for repairs. Uncertain if the next purchase will be Ampeg :(

    Comments about Ampeg SVT-5PRO 2 Channel 1,000W RMS Bass Head:

    This thing rocks 2 effects loops overdrive channel, octave switch, 1000 watts this thing is hard core great for any style this is the pro seres version of what Claypool uses and sounds warmer because of the tube. Tom Araya uses this and it's an ampeg you cant go wrong with this company.

    Excellent amp. Many people who have owned both the SVT 4 pro and the SVT 5 pro have said that the 4 pro is better. The 5 is the newer model and i think the 2 channels give it the edge. The distortion is excellent, great noise and clarity from it. Built-in octaver is superb, it has to be the best i've heard, miles better than other effects pedal i've had

    Awesome POWER

    Comments about Ampeg SVT-5PRO 2 Channel 1,000W RMS Bass Head:

    This is without a doubt the Holy Grail of all that is bass amplification. The variety of sounds is great, power is unbelivable. The footswitch, mute and combine features really set this appart as a professional model. Ampeg - well done.

    AMPEG SVT-5 Pro...well worth it.

    Comments about Ampeg SVT-5PRO 2 Channel 1,000W RMS Bass Head:

    I bought my AMPEG head over a year ago (running through 2 HE410 cabinets) and she's still going strong after a year of standard gig abuse. You can't ask for more versatility and tone control. I feel comfortable saying I can get just about any sound I'm going for with this head.

    many non-practical features/ poor of quality

    By Isaacct

    from San Jose,Ca

    Comments about Ampeg SVT-5PRO 2 Channel 1,000W RMS Bass Head:

    It's probably interesting to see these many features on a bass head, but that is also the problem...does not have enough control (...noise on clean channel)...basically too many features (that I personally don't use) and not even average quality (what I was expecting)...It might be a good series (nice idea), but it needs a lot of work (seems to me like a project halfway done)
