  1. Are there any tonal differences between the two?

    I dont know much about the tonal differences. They are probably pretty similar. What you want to watch out for with the "Pro" version are reliability issues.
     
  3. the reliability issues were with the very early pros that had a faulty protection circuit

    the II sounds alot closer to the original SVT and less like modern SVT's (good thing IMO), i dont think the extra-do-da's are really worth it

    oh yeah, and my SVT II is being fairly unreliable ATM, my fault for not getting it checked out anyway . . .
     
  4. Just another difference, they have different tube compliments, so its quite a noticable difference

    II :-

    3x 12AX7
    1x 12AX7 + 2x 12AU7
    6x 6550

    2Pro :-

    4x 12AX7 + 1x 12AU7
    1x 12AX7 + 2x 12AU7
    6x 6550
