My backorder wait is finally over. Picked up the final piece for my new lightweight setup and brought it home to try out. Fwiw, my only other experience is with an acoustic B200 115 combo and a TC BG500 210 combo. (Both over twice the weight of my new setup). Here are my initial thoughts (bass is 98 MIA P bass completely stock) 1. Quieter than I expected from other reviews I read. By far the quietest of the 3 amps. I can see a second svt210av in my very near future. Master and gain were at 1 o'clock in order to get the amount of volume I'd need playing in our small church. Adequate yes, but barely. I was expecting a little more volume. I should also note I was able to push the master and gain to 3 o'clock with no clipping or breakup. Neither of the other two amps will go that high cleanly. 2. Very very subtle eq/drive controls. The Acoustic also shares this trait while the TC's control adjustments are much more dramatic. I prefer the subtle adjustments. I'd say you'd probably need a 30-40% change in any given control for an untrained ear to notice. Maybe 20% with the gain. 3. I would describe the tone of this setup as warm, soft, tons of mids, very vintage-y. In fact my wife said right away "it sounds old". The TC is cold, hard, and modern while the Acoustic is clean and deep only. 4. I can't say enough good things about the drive control. I used to think the TC tube tone was the end all be all but it already sounds more like a subtle overdrive to me now. The TH drive is warm and tube sounding but not in your face because there's no breakup in the tone like you get with the TC. Just personal preference. I think they could have just as easily labeled it "warmth" instead of drive because of that. Weight was my main factor in getting this set up. So in that regard it's a keeper.
