Do you already have your favorite rackmount preamp, and seek a rackmount all-tube power amp in the 200 watt range to go with it? If yes, this thread may be of interest to you. A few days ago, I started a thread on the idea of a 200 watt Ampeg SVT-VR. (That thread is still alive and well, so if you have an interest in such an amp, please go to *THAT* thread for posting on that topic.) One thing that happened to come up in that thread is the idea of the following: a 200 watt all-tube rackmount power amp (designed for bass) that uses a quad of 6550's and uses traditional Ei iron transformers for power supply and for output designed for 200 watts (eg, *slightly* lighter trannies than the ones used in the 300 watt SVT-II non-pro), with Speakon output connectors. Essentially, this would be identical to the old 80-pound Ampeg SVT-300 rackmount all-tube power amp (which was just the power section of the Ampeg SVT-II non-pro), except this would be 200 watts instead of 300, and would have Speakon output connectors (plus hopefully be a little lighter.....maybe 60'ish pounds or so since the trannies wouldn't need to be quite as massive??) Rather than derail that other thread for such a subject, I decided to create a separate thread (this one) to ask my excellent TB brethren to indicate your level of interest in such a power amp. It seems there are some TB'ers who already own their favorite rackmount preamp, and would like to plug it into an all-tube power amp instead of a solid state power amp. I selected 200 watts because for some bassists, that would provide the "sweet spot" as some bassists feel that a 100 watt all-tube power section doesn't provide enough headroom, and a 300 watt all-tube power section has to get way too loud to reach that wonderful "just on the brink of power tube saturation" tone that some TB'ers love. This thread is *NOT* to discuss the excessively worn-out "tubes versus solid state" topic, so please don't go there. This thread is *ONLY* to find out the level of interest in the exact rackmount power amp I bulleted above. Also, I have been around the block long enough to be familiar with every amp that exists on this planet (please forgive me if that sounds boastful, as I don't mean it to sound that way). I just don't want someone to read my thread and reply quickly with "dude.....just get an old Peavey 120/120" or "grab an Aggie DB728 or the Dem 300". I am totally familiar with those power amps and others as well. Those are fine amps, but this thread is not about that as none of the all-tube rackmount power amps that I have seen match the description of what I bulleted above. So, please chime in with your level of interest in such a power amp!
