About this amp.
Three of the ECC83 preamp valves are used in the preamp section. The remaining two valves are used in the driver section. There is no need to use a balanced preamp valve as the amp does not use a phase inverter (despite the nonsense you will see on various forums).
Here’s how Ampeg describe this amp:
“The sound is in your head. You’ve played countless instruments in search of the ultimate soul mate. Now you need an amp that will speak your sound to the audience. That’s where the SVT-3PRO comes in. There’s a reason this amp is a best seller—it delivers the goods! With up to 450 watts and the sweet sound of tubes, the SVT-3PRO is the top choice of rockers and funk meisters around the globe.
It’s all about tone. The SVT-3PRO’s Frequency control allows you to select the centre frequency for the Midrange control, giving you a choice of five distinct “voices” for the Midrange. The centre frequencies are 220Hz, 450Hz, 800Hz, 1.6kHz and 3kHz. And if that’s not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to custom tailor your sound even more. Or use the EQ to set up a foot-switchable “second channel” for your show-stopping bass solo”.
