    I play Ampeg SVT '73 amp with Ampeg 8x10 Cab. For a long time I have been drawn to Aguilar, but where I'm from (Denmark) you don't really have the chance to test them properly. Anyone have experience comparing these to amp soundwise and performancewise.

    Thank You

    What's wrong with your old SVT ? They are generally keepers...

    My problem is that lately it has started to act a bit weak, the early stages of old amps becoming old geezers. It has become very expensive in maitenance over the last 3 years, and the "natural hum" is becoming a problem for the soundtech. I work with. Trust me, I still like the sound, but is wondering how the Aguilar amps act compared to the SVt classics.
