    I may get this head from someone selling it online in excellent condition. Buy or Pass? Made in USA. Price includes shipping.
  2. Sounds good if the tubes are in good shape...

    Yeah, I think that's a good deal...I paid $850 back 2002 and have replaced tubes every 3 to 4 years. Check it out and buy it if you think its a good deal!

    Even if they aren't, the tubes in the SVT III-PRO aren't very expensive. I think it's just a bunch of 12AX7's.

    I have a USA model almost seventeen years old, been my main amp and never let me down.
