Hi and Welcome to the Ampeg Ideascale Webpage

This is a place where YOU, the Ampeg fan get to suggest and vote on how we might be able to improve on our existing products…..

Or, suggest some new ideas that we may never have even thought of yet. This is YOUR hangout!!

It’s also super easy to use!

Simply register by setting up an account using an email and password. Once you do that you can scroll through the home page and view any one of the more popular topics there and then either click the up arrow to agree, or the down arrow to disagree with the topic. That’s how easy it is to vote on something.

If you’re looking for something specific, you can click any one of the “campaigns” on the right of the page and this will take you to its respective category where you can once again vote yay or nay on any one of the ideas.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to create your own idea by clicking on “Submit New Idea” in the blue box and following the prompts there as well. From there, anyone else can vote to agree or disagree on your new idea.

Pretty simple, right?

The only thing we ask in return is keep it informative, keep it respectful of other people’s ideas and comments, but most importantly, keep it fun!

We totally look forward to seeing everyone’s comments and suggestions.

Play More Bass!!!

SVT Amps and Cabs

SVT-CL XLR out independent level instead of being tied to Master

On the SVT-VR, the Transformer Balanced Out has it's own independent level control on the back. On the other hand, the SVT-CL Transformer Balanced Out is controlled by the Master volume on the front panel. It should have it's own level control, like the SVT-VR. While you're at it, a ground lift (like on the SVT-VR) and perhaps cabinet emulation on both VR and CL models XLR out would be even better, so then it sounds as... more »

Pro Series Amps and Cabs

Reissue the SVT-II

This was the precursor to the SVT-2PRO and the SVT-CL. At one time, this was the ONLY all tube amp that Ampeg made and it was said to be the closest thing to an original 70's SVT

General Suggestions

Reissue classic Ampeg basses! Baby, Scroll, Devil, etc.

Given the recent purchase of Ampeg by Yamaha, why not take advantage of that half-century of guitar-making experience and bring these classic instruments back to life! NS designs has shown that the upright bass can be seen in pop music stages. Perhaps an all -wood design Baby, such as those made by Steve Azola (No longer made), could make the Baby appealing to ALL musicians, not just 'Salseros'! ;) Eastwood has released... more »

General Suggestions

Reissue Classic Ampeg Guitar Amps

I'd really like to see Ampeg reissue a couple of their classic guitar amps as high-quality American-made PCB-based amps like other manufacturer's vintage reissues. I think aiming for about 12 watts at about $1000 would be ideal. R-12 Rocket anyone? J-20 Jet?

Reissue the B-15 without the Heritage price tag

I'd really like to have a B-15 at a lower price point than the heritage series but at a higher quality than the PF-20T and PF-50T... maybe parallel to other manufacturer's American-made vintage reissue amplifiers with PCBs inside.

 

It would be key to keep the styling and schematic of the original B-15, octal preamp tubes and all... and use high quality electronic components.

Build a B-15 Preamp/DI

I'd really like an all-tube B-15 preamp and DI for the studio. Other manufacturers make such things, but I think Ampeg could do it better. I'd like to see octal preamp tubes, a high-quality transformer (Cinemag or equivalent), made in the USA.
