AMPEG Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary And Builds A 11-Foot-Tall Bass Amp For SPINAL TAP’s DEREK SMALLS

Imagine this amp bigger, but bigger. Ampeg is set to commemorate its 50th anniversary with a special event on January 26 at the Anaheim Marriott in California. The doors open at 2 PM.

Marking the occasion, the company had built an 11-foot (3.35m) amp for Spinal Tap bassist Derek Smalls.

Ampeg writes:

“Come witness this once-in-a-lifetime event where Derek Smalls plays the legendary 11′ tall (yes, that’s 11-feet tall… this amp truly goes to 11), behemoth, custom-built Ampeg SVT bass amplifier. Derek Smalls will also be promoting his new album and taking audience questions.”
