Don't be fooled by its diminutive, dare we say "cute", appearance. The Ampeg Micro VR Bass Amp Head is a compact powerhouse fully capable of pumping its 200 watts of genuine Round SoundTM into myriad live and recording situations. This 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 Micro-VR head delivers 200W of pure Ampeg tone, in a package that could practically fit in your pocket. This deceptively small head provides the looks of the classic SVT-VR that made the original famous in the 1970's. A balanced direct out, -15dB pad, on-board limiter and dual speaker outs offer tremendous versatility whether on stage, or in the studios. The 1/8" stereo input and output let you easily integrate an MP3 player for practice or recording. Pair it with the companion SVT-210AV cab for a fully gigable, but super micro rig. Great sound, unmatched portability...small wonder, it's an Ampeg.
The Ampeg SVT Legacy
The SVT has become the bass amp that all rock bassists dream of, whether they're famous or completely unknown.
Former Bass Player editor Scott Malandrone put the SVT in perspective this way: "The SVT has done for the sound of electric bass what the Marshall Super Lead had done for the electric guitar--it would give the instrument an identity." We couldn't say it better ourselves.
Ampeg Amps: Built to Work Hard
Ampeg, (a division of Loud Technologies) is recognized world-wide as the premier name in bass and guitar amplification since the 1960's, when the SVT (Super Valve Tone) bass amplifier took the rock world by storm with its 300 watts, 8 x10" speaker cabinet and a tone that would go on to set the standard for rock and roll bass. Today, Ampeg continues on as the leader in professional bass gear and a cherished manufacturer of classic guitar amplifier designs with a continuing tradition of advancing bass tone through quality & innovation.
