    Well, if youre fixing to get one of the bigger SVT cabs like an 8x10, then you're gonna need the luck of the Irish to push that bad boy with anything other than the appropriate head like an SVT-CL,
    AV, SVT-PRO II, III,etc.
    Your best bet is to find a reasonably priced used amp head- But remember, with that kind of cabinet,
    you need wattage to get headroom & make the
    drivers sing!

    Hmm,, well I would probably buy a used Gallien Krueger 1001RB head to go with the cab. Versatile tone that sounds great in the first place,, proven reliablity,, lightweight and affordable! I ESPECIALLY like the GK tone when it's thru an SVT to boot. Good for fingerstyle,, slap and picking IMO,, not the best for jazz perhaps,, but who uses an 8x10 for that??!!
  4. I do! :D
