Took home an SVT3 today to try out (my drummer manages a music store) and was less than impressed. After extensively A/B'ing it with my b2, I'm keeping the b2. The SVT had a beefier flat sound with a little more character, but volume wise I felt the b2 projected better. I couldn't get a fat sound out of the SVT without engaging the Ultra low switch which sucked alot of the power out of it. I also liked the sound of the Ultra high switch in but man, it adds a ton of hiss. I then put my Sansamp in front of the b2 and it blew away the SVT. Considering the price difference I think it's a no-brainer. Anybody else dissappointed in the SVT3 or am I the only one?
