    Well with the SVT3PRO, you get a litle more power, 450W @ 4.

    You move to a tube preamp and a tube-driven Mosfet output with a "tube drive" that affects the volume and amount of tube distortion.

    You get a midrange control with a frequency switch, which may give you tonal options you would like.

    You get the Ultralow and Ultra high switches, and a bright switch.

    The graphic EG frequencies are spread a little differently, and there is a level control for it. The EQ is footswitchable.

    You get a speakon, level controlled line out, tuner out.

    And I think the SVT3PRO has much nicer tone capabilities.

    I guess you are going to have to go check it out to see if you like it enough to switch.

    Thanks for asking!
