Well my cheap old head finally died, and i need a new one. I've pretty much narrowed it down to a couple of possibilities (all ampeg) and i need some opinions. I am particularly interested in anyone who owns an svt-450, because i can't find one at any of the local music stores. I went and tried out an svt-3 pro and loved the tone, but i am a full time college student and am very poor, so the $900 price tag was kind of a let down. If anyone has experience with solid-state ampeg heads, particularly the B2re (because it's cheap) i would love to hear some opinions, otherwise i'll just bite the bullet and get tubes. I play black metal, i need something that can give me lots of low end with very crisp punchy highs. If anyone has any other suggestions preferably in the $500-800 range i'd be open to suggestions. Thank you for your help.
