"Ampeg SVT 7-Pro"

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was a little skeptical about buying a D-Class amp, but pulled the trigger out of need and the convenience of the monthly installment plan. I'd read the reviews and when I received the amp head I fully checked it out. Guess what, the amp switched off repeatedly after about ten minutes of concert level playing. Thermal shutdown was not an option here. So I packed it up, notified Zzounds and shipped it off. They had a new one on my doorstep in 4 business days. When I received and checked the second unit, no problems. I had a big casino show two days later and wanted the tone and look on top of my SVT Anniversary 810e cabinet, but I brought along my SWR Working Mans Head just in case. The SVT 7-Pro performed flawlessly. Nothing beats the tone. I am also a progressive rock guitarist and my well known friend runs two SVT 2-Pros *courtesy of Ampeg*, and the tone is killer. I have to say I didn't miss anything in tone not to mention the excessive weight and cost of the all tube version. I've only had it three weeks now, but 3 more shows (all out-door) and it hasn't skipped a beat. Thanks to Zzounds for getting me a replacement toot sweet!
