Up for grabs is my blackface Ampeg SVP PRO preamp.
All tube preamp with transformer isolated XLR out, 2 preamp outs on 1/4” jacks, effects loops and tuner out.
Manual is online here:
Comes with full set of Harma tubes (Watford Tubes’ own brand) and isolating transformer for the preamp outputs - these units can be quite noisy due to the design of the power supply; a £15 passive Behringer box between the SVP and the power amp solves the problem.
will trade for Ampeg SCR-DI pedal as I’m moving to ‘in-ears’ now.
So I've had my Vintage Deluxe for ages and always used it as a drive pedal, but I'm finding myself needing a preamp lately so I've started using it as a preamp/EQ section early on in my chain.
I see a lot of people using the Tone Hammer for a similar role and I wondered how the two compare.
Anyone have any opinions on the two pedals and the their abilities as drive/preamp pedals?
