The Heritage SVT-CL from Ampeg is a 300W tube amplifier head designed for electric bass, featuring passive and active inputs, Ultra Hi and Ultra Lo options, and multiple frequency possibilities via the three-band EQ.

Further expanding the EQ's functionality, a frequency-selector knob affords you five options for midrange manipulation, from 220 Hz all the way up to 3 kHz. Eleven tubes bring traditional Ampeg tone to the unit, and both the standby and power switches are openly displayed on the front panel for convenience.

Turn your attention to the back of the amplifier and you'll see a variety of options for connectivity: two 1/4" outputs, one Neutrik speakON output, and a balanced XLR out, should you wish to port the head's sound directly into a PA or console. You'll also notice the ability to slave the unit to other amplifiers via 1/4" output, or to feed effects processors by utilizing the preamp out. A polarity switch provides various positions to help zero out unwanted electrical buzz. Two bias controls allow you to gear the unit's replaceable tubes toward a long-lasting performance or a more hefty sound in the short term. Finally, an impedance selector switches between 2 and 4 ohms, thereby affording you more options in choice of cabinet.
