My current rig: Rickenbacker 4003 with flatwounds Sansamp RBI Crown XLS 1000 bridged Mesa Boogie Power House 6x10 Venues: 3-500 people. Mainly just for stage volume as we have PA support everywhere but bar gigs (and I DI through the PA for those smaller bar gig). I play in a soul revival band (60s soul otis redding, wilson pickett, etc) but also occasionally play in a rock/garage/punk style band, so I need an amp with a good EQ that can cover some ground. I generally like the sound more round and fat, but since I play flatwounds it's nice to have something that has a good punch so I get more definition in the sound. I'm really happy with the Mesa 6x10. I'm not so happy with the Samsamp->Crown. Even though it's rated at 1000 watts bridged, I feel like it's not that strong. I'm having to crank it. I want more head room and generally a better sound. Something about the Sansamp->Crown just lacks in the tone department. Sterile sounding? I dunno. So I'm looking into new amps - my main concern is reliability. I've had so many issues in the past 5 years. I LOVED the sound of the Eden WT400, but it crapped out once (at a gig), then I got it fixed, then it crapped out again (at another gig). So I'm wary of Eden. The WT800 looked good but I've heard some have issues. Now, onto other amps that I'm curious about - SVT-3 Pro, SVT-7 Pro, GK 700RBII and GK 1001, Peavey Tour 750, Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 or 9.0 My 6x10 is rated at 900 watts, so I want to give it as much juju as I can. I know GKs are more punchy modern sound, but I've heard they are mega reliable. I know with the EQ I'd probably be able to get a good tone. What are your thoughts? Money is not a huge factor, and I'm willing to buy used. Again, main factor is reliability. Looking to spend anywhere from 4-600. Maybe a bit more, but if I can spend less let me know! Cheers and thanks in advance for the input.
