    What do guys think of these? I know carvin, fender, peavey, and now SWR has one and I'm really interested in them due to their size and power. Gimme any info on which is the best, what you play, etc.

    Check out the EBS Gorm ET350 if you can as well, very versatile and powerful. I sold it because it was to heavy for me, but it's very good.

    yeah, but aren't they unbelieveably expensive? I'll try one out when I get the chance tho.

    Well, I can't see where you are, or what price range you're aiming for. I'm guessing you're American though, so perhaps US brands are a better bet. Over here everything poroduced in non-European Union countries are unbelievable expensive, as a rule. :)

    yeah, that's probably the case. EBS goes for ALOT around here, as do warwicks. So it IS a foreign thing. For example, do ampegs and SWR amps go for alot over there?

    Yes. Just a few random examples:

    Ampeg 8x10 cabinet: $950 at Musiciansfriend, $1960 in my local store...

    SWR 750x head: $1100 versus $1775

    And to make things even harder to swallow, even EBS stuff is lower priced overseas, so it's not about shipping or taxes, it's about competition and market prices.

    EBS HD350 head: Retail in the US $1195. Retail in Sweden: $1265!

    I hate it. :)

    Another vote for the Nemesis 2x10 combo.

    Sounds good.

    Nice and light....very portable.

    You've probably considered it, but why not go for a good head and a 2-10 cabinet? The 2-10 combos typically are just too heavy! You may want to consider finding a good deal on a SWR-SM400S and a Goliath Jr. 2-10 (or Eden). It's much easier to load and unload (expecially when loading and unloading by yourself!). It also allows you to really taylor your sound by matching the cabinet of your choice with the head (or preamp/power amp) of your choice.:)

    I own an SWR Super Redhead and a Peavey Combo 210TX. As you'd expect, the SWR sounds better.

    The Peavey sounds pretty darn good however. I bought it to leave at a venue I frequently work that has a nightmare load in. They have a little Crate guitar amp for the house bass amp that sounds lousy and the Peavey will be a huge improvement.

    I believe the original SWR Redhead was the first 210 combo amp produced.
