Low End Legacy

Unveiled at the 1969 NAMM show in Chicago, the original Ampeg SVT head made its debut. Weighing in at 95 lbs and loaded with fourteen tubes, massive transformers with magnetic fields powerful enough to strain the very fabric of space time were necessary to drive the head. What type of speakers could handle all that power? Nothing less than two top shelf Ampeg cabinets sporting eight ten-inch speakers. Over the years the design has continued to be refined but that classic industry changing Ampeg tone has always remained intact!

Game Changing Low-end Tone for the History Books

With a story dating back to 1946 and armed with a gifted bassist at the helm Ampeg has always put the player first. Revolutionizing not only amplifier portability but reverb and power as well – Ampeg was quick to claim the title of the world’s best bass company. Utilizing custom tube circuitry Ampeg created a completely new design for unmatched power and headroom – this 300 watt behemoth and its “Super Valve Technology” or SVT for short quickly overtook the competition as the pinnacle in amplifier tech.

Early adopters of the Ampeg name include; The Rolling Stones, Bootsy Collins (James Brown), Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy), Eva Gardner (P!nk, Cher), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy, Dio, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot), Sheryl Crow

“Thank you The Arts Music Store for making my 50th b-day present experience a great one. Thank you for giving a care and for your amicable character and professionalism expressed to me and my wife. Can’t say enough about all o’ this. These guys are the best. Their product line-up is downright sexy and I think the fact that my wife also picked up a pink ukulele at the same time just made it even more fun than we could have hoped for. Thanks ‘The Arts Music Store’ — you rock!”

“Nothing short of great! Extremely knowledgeable staff that go out of their way to accommodate their clientele. Customers derive benefit of the staffs in depth knowledge based on their experience as working musicians. Their experience, integrity, and in-depth knowledge of the industry means that you will get decent products to suit your own personal music needs, at fair prices and excellent service after they have made the sale.

All the best to Archy and the gang!”

“My son and I have taken up guitar this year and we have visited a few of the popular music shops in the GTA in search of the right gear to get started with. The Arts staff have consistently provided us with exceptional service and a ton of great advice without the pushy sales approach of some of the other shops.
Great service and fantastic products!”
