I think I might sell my 400+ in a few months, and get something different. The tone is great, but I just think it could be better, because I've heard amps I like better, and the range of tones isn't as diverse as some amps. I loved the sound of the SVT CL, but some said that it isn't that diverse either. I only really need diverse sounds for recording (I run a basement studio) but they'd be nice to have for gigs. Which leaves me with a few options as i see it. An Ashdown head (ABM or MAG, i'm not sure yet), the SVT CL, or an Avalon U5 with a QSC power amp. How are the direct outs on the Ashdown and Ampeg? If I don't get the U5, i'll probably get a Radial JDI, but if I don't need one, thats better. I play modern rock, I want a very punchy sound. But for recording, I want to be able to get good tones for anything from jazz to death metal to punk and everything in between. I'll be playing either a Stringray or Sterling. For gigging, i'd need something that could handle 200-300 people. Recommendations? Suggestions? Thanks.
