    "SVT-5 Pro"
    Pros - Best sound and headroom ever.
    Cons - Very heavy!!!
    I've played thru everything ever made,,,,at least it seems that way! This head provides such a huge amount of head room any setting, no matter how much bottom you dial up, is reproduced effortlessly. Ridiculous open E thumb slap tone! You can hurt people with this.

    Pros - What a great amp
    Cons - can't justify getting a 4 pro
    Everytime I use the 5 pro, it impresses me with how good it sounds and how powerful it is. The room vibrates. Maybe it's the octaver, one of the many features on the 5pro.
    It has a clean channel and an overdrive channel which can be combined if you like.
    2 power amps that can be used separately or combined. I run mine mono-bridged which combines both power amps into one powerful package.
    It can be bi-amped. One power amp handles the lows. One power amp handles the highs. When bi-amped the front panel has 2 knobs that handle the crossover frequency and the crossover balance. I like how easy that is accomplished. When the bi-amped button is pushed on the rear panel, one power amp handles the highs and one the lows. No need to use patch jacks, like the 4 Pro.
    I was looking for a used 4 pro, when I found the 5 pro. The 4 pro is great , but I like the looks and the ease of use of the 5 pro better. Plus, I have an Ampeg B4R which is like a solid state 4 pro.
    I decided to do this little review because I played the 5 pro today and was duly impressed with it.
    Price Paid:
    $750 looks and performs like new.
