This is my first post. A few weeks ago I purchased a new svt810av to replace my old acoustic 810 and so far couldn't be happier with the new sounds I'm getting. I'm currently using a Peavy tour 450 head that I got for cheap and while the tone is pretty decent I feel like it could be much better. Within the next few months I will be looking to upgrade and I'm basically posting this to broaden my horizons as far as which heads to check out. I live in northern NJ so there are quite a few music stores within driving distance, meaning I should be able to try out a variety of different heads. I know of a vintage Ampeg V4B for sale in my area, I've yet to try it out myself but from hearing clips on youtube they sound great.
My playing style is an aggressive,fast three finger technique, I hit the strings really hard. I play metal and hard rock and my main bass is a Musicman Bongo 4HH.
That being said, I'm looking for recommendations from people who have had experience with an svt810av and Musicman Bongo basses. I'm open to all suggestions as far as price and tube/solid state heads go. http://www.flickr.com/photos/111967613@N02/11453853325/
