    anyone have any experience with these? i'm going to be looking for a preamp soon, and i'm definately on a budget. if i hold out alittle longer i could definately afford a used svp pro. basically i'm looking for the closest i can get to the svt tone, without having an svt. what do you all think?

    IIRC, the SVP IIp is an older unit. It doesn't have a drive control or a master volume control. If you want an overdriven SVT tone, you better wait for the SVP-PRO.

    You can look for reviews here by doing a search if you haven't already, at and (look in the guitar amp review section for bass amps).

    Good luck!!!
