Ampeg Micro VR Bass Amp Half Stack

Don't be fooled by its diminutive, "cute", appearance. The Ampeg SVT Micro VR half stack is a compact powerhouse fully capable of pumping its 200 watts of genuine Round Sound into myriad live and recording situations.

The Ampeg Micro VR portable, powerful solid-state head in traditional Ampeg drag is a pleasant surprise from the second you lay eyes on it to the moment its indisputable Ampeg tone hits your ears.

The Ampeg SVT210AV is the portable alternative to a full sized SVT cab. Ideal for bleed-sensitive recording situations where the SVT810-AV can be too loud and live situations where it can be too large, the SVT210AV is designed using Ampeg's legendary Infinite Baffle system for maximum speaker efficiency and true Ampeg tone.

If you have been shopping for an amp, look no further. This is the one. In the early nineties, I tested every bass amp there was and and none suited me other than the Ampeg SVTIII and the 4x10 cab. Used (and still am) a Fender Precision with EMG pickups. Some amps had there good points, but I was looking for fat with punch, so Ampeg was for me. Time marches on and that rig was a monster to lug and load. Ten years ago I got a Behringer BX600. Easier to lug, but lacked that rich full bottom that the guitar players always complimented the Ampeg on. Looked at this Micro VR for a while, skeptically, but recently bought it. Four gigs later and the guitar players are raving about the bass again. Me too! AND it is so light! Had casters on the other stuff. Not this one. Even the fiddle player (female) likes it (she said it's cute, too!). Plays well with effects (Source Audio) without haveing to cut back on the gain. It' has the most even sound across all four strings. It is a fan cooled MOSFET so if you run it hard, the fan will run faster and noisier but cools quickly and will be ok in time for the next quiet song. Also worth noting that it will handle octaves well below the fattest string.
