    An SVT has been my dream rig since I started playing bass, and I finally picked one up! I got it from a family friend and was told it's never been gigged, and it sure looks perfect. The original owner took the white piping off the cab but that doesn't bother me.

    This thing absolutely ROARS. Just to scare the neighbors, I hooked up all my cabs to it last night and almost knocked my house down! With either of my P basses, I can get the tones I've been trying to get forever.

    It's all USA and the head is an '01 and the cab is a '98.

    And the obligatory pics:

    Congrats
    How does it compare with the 4 Pro?

    I haven't done any side by side comparison yet, other than jamming with two bassists and two drummers last night (that should be another thread), but I'm gonna try to really compare them today

    Glad you got a 98 cab instead of one of the 2000-2005 cabs. They sound way better and aren't as dark. Enjoy your rig...there's nothing in the world like your first SVT rig!

    Thanks guys! I think I need to get rid of the 4 Pro stack now. I'm only 19 and my parents probably won't be thrilled if they see both of them when they get back from vacation!

    Never hurts to have a backup head. Sell the cabs and keep the 4 Pro.

    Congrats on both your Ampeg rigs! Hopefully your folks will let you slide. I've never played an SVT through more than a single 810. If your other two cabs are 8 ohm 410's, I bet that SVT set to 2 ohms rocking through 16 10"s is quite the experience!

    That was the first thing I did when I brought it home! I was knocking things off the shelves two floors up!

    I'm envious! Man, I love that kind of power. Major pant leg flap!

    I'm contemplating it. I have a old beat up Hartke 3500 as a backup, but the 4 Pro is really a great head. I'm not sure I can justify keeping it rarely using it, especially since it's as heavy as the SVT.
