The sound is in your head. You've played countless instruments in search of the ultimate soul mate. Now you need an amp that will speak your sound to the audience. That’s where the SVT-3PRO comes in. There’s a reason this amp is a best seller—it delivers the goods! With up to 450 watts and the sweet sound of tubes, the SVT-3PRO is the top choice of rockers and funkmeisters around the globe.

It’s all about tone. The SVT-3PRO’s Frequency control allows you to select the center frequency for the Midrange control, giving you a choice of five distinct “voices” for the Midrange. The center frequencies are 220Hz, 450Hz, 800Hz, 1.6kHz and 3kHz. And if that’s not enough, you can use the 9-Band Graphic EQ to custom tailor your sound even more. Or use the EQ to set up a footswitchable “second channel” for your show-stopping bass solo.

The SVT-3PRO is designed for the player who wants SVT tone and performance (with a few modern enhancements) in a convenient rackmount design. Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and Les Claypool (Primus) are just a couple of the world-class artists that depend on the SVT-3PRO to get the job done, day in and day out.

Great Amp.....With Limitations


I originally had this SVT 3 Pro amp paired up with the SVT 6x10 HLF cabinet. Quickly I noticed a buzzing in the mid range tones and some of the low tones. I thought the cabinet had a blown speaker or a bad horn, well I was wrong. I brought both units back so the bass tech could figure out what was wrong. After about an hour and a half of pairing other SVT 3 Pros into different cabinets we figured out that the buzz was only present when it was powering a cabinet 600watt RMS and above, which is the 6x10HLf, and the 8x10E, rated at 800watt RMS. The only cabinet that it seemed to power clearly was the 4x10Hlf which is rated at 500watt RMS. Now don't be discouraged, the SVT 3 Pro is a very loud and powerful 450 watt amp. It has clean tone ranging to fit any musical style and hands down the best sounding amp in its class. I still rate this amp 4 stars, it just underpowers anything larger that a 4x10 cab, otherwise, 5 stars.

Best head ever.


I've owned this head for about 8 years and, other than replacing the input jack recently, I've never had to get this repaired or looked at even once. This head has been knocked over plenty of times and never has never failed. Best head ever.
