Hi guys, I am going to be in the market for a new amp shortly and I have been doing a fair bit of research on Ampeg heads, in particular the SVT-3pro. However, last weekend my band played 3 gigs and the amp that was supplied was an SVT 2pro combined with an SVT 810e cab.....I was extremly impressed with the sound of the SVT 2pro as it cut through the mix so well and the low end sound was amazing (im in a reggae band so low end is pretty important). I have never played through an SVT-3pro and I understand that it is a solid state amp with a tube pre amp and I am wondering if this would be able to cut through the mix or provide some sort of reliable sound onstage? We do play some pretty big gigs at big venues and I have had problems in the past with hearing myself onstage (our drummer plays ridiculously loud). My current amp is a MarkBass F1 head with a MarkBass standard 104 cab which just isnt cutting it anymore. I guess I just want to know if the svt-3pro will be able to satisfy my needs or would it just be better to pay the extra for the all tube SVT 2pro (even though it destroys all the muscles in my arms when lifting). Thanks in advance.
