Bass Guitar Amplification

Bass Guitar Combos, Heads and Cabs.



In the world of high-performance bass amps, Ampeg’s SVT amplifiers are in a class by themselves. In true Ampeg tradition, the SVT-4 PRO offers you more power, performance and flexibility than any other bass amplifier in its class.

SVT-4 PRO offers an expansive palette of tonal options. The Frequency control allows you to select the center frequency for the Midrange control, giving you five distinct voicing options for the Midrange. And if that's not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to fine-tune your sound - or use it to set up a footswitchable "second channel" with a volume boost for your bass solo.

SVT-4 PRO is designed for the player who wants SVT tone and performance (with a few modern enhancements) in a convenient, high-powered, rackmount design. With a huge and diverse group of artist endorsements, including Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel/King Crimson), Steve Bailey (Bass Extremes), and far too many others to list here, the SVT-4 PRO is a clear favorite among professionals. In the world of high performance bass amps, the Ampeg SVT-4 PRO has what it takes to really define your sound.


The Ampeg SVT-410AV 4 x 10" Cabinet is portable and powerful 4 ohm, 4 x 10" bass speaker cabinet that incorporates four custom made 10" low frequency drivers to deliver deep and defined lows whilst a responsive 1” horn with a cross over of 4kHz provides plenty of pop and crisp high end response. Also featuring a power output of 500 watts RMS, L Pad Horn Attenuator, a tilt back handle bar and 3” casters for easy transportation the SVT-410AV is perfect for medium to large venues providing a full and dynamic tonality across the 48Hz – 18 kHz frequency response whilst the Baltic birch plywood enclosure provides a durable and robust shell ideal for life on the road.


Because the DeltaBass is a lightweight amp, it’s portable enough for any gig or practice. The easy to use three-band EQ is so versatile you should have no problem quickly dialling up your sound. Professional features like a Tuner Send, Post-EQ Effects Loop, and a transformer balanced XLR jack with Pre/Post EQ switch will make your next gig a breeze. The signal for the XLR is tapped before the Volume control (even for the Post EQ Send) so you can adjust your stage volume without tampering with the sound in the mains. This will certainly score some valuable points with your sound man. Power 160w (4 ohms)


The Peavey Tour 450 Bass Amp Head offers tons of power plus extensive tone shaping tools, such as bright and low-cut switches, active high and low shelving controls, a contour control, and a 9-band graphic EQ configured to target critical bass frequencies. Its also includes a Peavey-exclusive sub-harmonic generator with level control and footswitchable bypass that adds a note one octave lower than the original note, creating interesting harmonic textures and a significantly enriched bottom end.


The 12 Band range offers more control, more sound and more power. There are six footswitchable features that include Pre Shape (for that classic Trace sound), Valve (to add valve warmth or overdrive), 12-band classic Trace Elliot Graphic Equalizer, dual-band soft-knee Compressor with separate controls for the High and Low bands, sophisticated effects loop (hi-pass/lo-pass/full-range outputs, left/right/mono returns, series/parallel switch, loop level control), and output Mute (mutes all outputs except Tuner Out).

Other features included are electronically balanced XLR DI outputs for pre-EQ and post-preamp left and right, left and right Line Outputs, and two valve/tube driver stages for signal preconditioning before the power stage. All stereo features listed above are summed to mono for the speaker outputs of the 1210 and 1215 combination amplifiers, with full stereo capability provided on the AH1000-12 head.


The modern version of a classic format that Trace Elliot pioneered in the early days. Now an 800W cabinet with four specially designed 10" Celestion speakers and a high frequency horn with variable attenuation. The cabinet has been tuned to 40Hz with central unobstructed slots for a full, punchy sound. The 1048 enclosure works especially well solo, in pairs, or paired with the 1518.


A 500W enclosure loaded with a wide-excursion 15" Celestion speaker, the 1518 is tuned to 38Hz and features an unobstructed bottom slot and internal bracing to achieve superb low frequency reproduction. For full-range sound this can be used in a stack with either the 1028H or 1048H.
