Ampeg SVT II - often referred to as the “non pro” as it came before the current SVT 2’s but this is a different beast with a older better (in my opinion) pre amp that is much closer to the SVT’s of old. In excellent cosmetic and working condition. Revalved by myself around 4months ago so good to rock. Previous owner (Big Fish Rentals, Manchester) had this regularly serviced by local valve legend Roland Lumby. Its has been hardwired to run at 4ohms so the previous ohm selector switch for 2ohm/4ohm has been replaced with a speakon connector. Can be seen and tried in my Bolton mancave with your bass/cab or mine.
Comes with a roqsolid dust cover
Engaging the graphic EQ does bring a little hum. Apparently this is standard but to be honest i never use it anyway.
Postage not an option im afraid but could meet up within reasonable distance
Trades/part ex. Im after a decent lighter hybrid amp so would consider the following amps with cash top up:-
Ampeg SVT III non pro
Mesa Big Block 750

Collection from Southampton would be good. Traveling to Peterborough in a few weeks so could meet up along the way
WITHDRAWN FOR NOW AS IM GONNA KEEP IT MAYBE GET A SECOND HEAD LATER DOWN THE LINE.
Up for trade or at a push sale is my Little B. It's a cracking little amp that's just sitting on my cab not getting the use it deserves. I'm hoping to get out and gigging once all the madness is over so will be looking for a head with a bit more than the 30watts ideally valve again but open to my options. Good condition hardly used since I have had it really not in a rush and will be happy to keep it if I find a bargain or until the right trade comes along
The Little Bastard preamp stage employs ECC83 and ECC82 tubes and features High and Low gain inputs, front panel-mounted Effects Send and Return, rotary Bass, Middle and Treble controls with Mid Shift, Bass Shift and Bright switching, Mute switch, rotary Volume control and balanced DI output.
Ideally hoping to trade up with a little cash towards but would consider sale if the right thing doesnt turn up or may keep if I find something at the right price. Straight Sale price would be looking for £400.
would be looking ideally for a valve head of 100watts plus or maybe a mesa walkabout. Some of my past amps include to give you the idea.

I'm looking for any advice from anyone that has played or owned one or hopefully both of these!
I run a small commercial studio as well as being a session bass player. I'm looking for a decent tube amp that will do that expected tube amp thing in the studio and for smaller gigs. I've very keen on either of these but both have pros and cons for me, and Im looking for any advice from owners.
I love that the PF50T has self loading, every amp should have this, just for safety alone! - However there will almost always be a mic on it so it's not a dealbreaker. I kind of feel like some people listen with their eyes, so something with Ampeg written on it is always good for a studio. The biggest plus - it's THAT sound, and I love THAT sound.
I love the Stubby for the feedback control, from everything I've heard it seems like you really can convincingly get anything from SVT to B15 to Bassman - this is super attractive - if this has self loading it would be an easy winner. I've also had an LB30 drophead on loan for a few weeks and I'm getting on well with it.
Both about the same price. Both as easily available.
