    Alright, so I've been on the low side of the bands, tee hee hee. And now I'm looking at some pretty big $$$ Numbers. I'm going to be getting at AMPEG 810HPC with a Ampeg SVT-1000...I want to know if anybody has ever heard this set up or used it. Any info on this would be spldid-tact-ular-ous.

    I haven't heard it. Sounds like a lot of money for a lot of weight for ampeg solid state tone. Not my cup of tea.

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    Old tube SVT-ii, CL, etc would have superior tone and power.

    If you got the cash, go all tube, you won't regret it.

    Find a used Sunn 300T or Fender Bassman 300 Pro.

    or:

    I have been with Ampeg for 30 years and I can get the same vintage tone with a Peavey DPC1400x amp and Ampeg SVP-Pro preamp (new one not the older blue logo).
