I gigged with an Ampeg SVT3 Pro for about 3 years. It always seemed to lack volume and headroom. It seemed to be a very underwhelming 450 Watts @ 4 Ohms. In your case that would be 275 Watts @ 8 Ohms.
I have since learned that the tube bias should be checked for optimum performance, the Peak light needs to be lighting up, the Tube Gain controls the "mushiness" of the amp, and the Master Volume should be set fairly high and use the Gain knob to adjust the overall volume.
Definitely not as plug-in and play as the Bass Terror. Highly recommend trying it before you trade it.
