  2. You could always try turning down the treble!!

  4. If you're fed up of the knob twirling on this, you'll quickly get fed up of trying to put an SVT Classic or 2 Pro in and out of your car!!! I did. Although they sound great, I've concluded that they're not practical for a jobbing musician. If I had a road crew I wouldn't hesitate but they are so flipping heavy it's untrue!!!!!
  5. Hi all, I've just bought a used 3 Pro and it seems to have an issue. It sounds, even at low volume, slightly distorted, almost like a driven valve head. Ironically it sounds quite nice but I've heard a few and know it's not right. I've read a lot about the mosfets needing biasing on these amps, but then it could be a bad tube? What do you advise? Do I change the tubes and see if that makes it ok? The guy I bought it from says it was fine before he sent it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Dave.

  7. Hi all. I bought a 7 Pro about 3 years ago and love the tone. The issue is, I’ve had endless problems with it and am now sick of it. In 2018 after continued cutting out I sent it to surrey Amps who fixed it for £190. Then it began doing the same thing a year later, in 2019. I sent it back to them and they said it was a different problem and charged me another £180 to fix it. Now, roughly 7 months later it’s started cutting out again! What do I do? Spend another £200 on an amp that’s gonna crap out every year? I think Ampeg is now owned by Wetherspoons so probably won’t get much sense from them. I’m really fed up and at a loss of what to do. Send back to Surrey amps again, sell it for spare or repair it try to contact Ampeg? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  8. Hi mate. The person I bought it from or Ampeg? Neither I’m afraid!

  10. Well hello there!! Good to see you on the basschat scene mate!!
  11. It’s not so much volume mate. They just sounded too weak and I found myself needing to dig in too much. I like a soft touch but high output.
  12. Just to update. Changed them for SD Quarter Pounders and it’s definitely the right decision for me. Gives me that thump and high response I love. Gigged then last night and they were amazing. Horses for courses I guess!!
