I just got an Ampeg SVT II Pro not too long ago and I already am having problems with it. The last large amp I had was an Ampeg B2 combo that I had a ton of problems with, and I'm afraid the same thing is going to happen with this one. I'm sensing a pattern as far as the reliability of SLM Ampegs is concerned. (I've been reading through a lot of what people are saying, and I can see I'm not the only one who has this opinion). Anyway, should I get it fixed, or just save myself the long-term hassel of having it break repeatedly. If I do get a new amp, I would definately want another tube amp. I'm seriously considering the Aguilar DB 359. I'd be going down from 300 watts to 200, but I honestly don't think I need that much power for the music I play. Any thoughts? I haven't played through an Aguilar yet, so I'd also apreciate some info on the difference in sound between an Aguilar and an Ampeg. Thanks.
