As stated in other posts on here, I am the owner of an Ampeg MTI era SVT. I just got it repaired after a long stint on the sidelines. It sounds great, just as it did before it broke down. My question is: in relation to the SVT's of the late 60's through 70's, how do the MTI SVT's differ (other than cosmetics of course) from their predecessors? Tonally, is one or the other typically more sought after or preferable? From personal experience, I've played through two different 70's Magnavox SVT's when mine stopped working at a couple of shows, and....maybe I'm dreaming, but I feel like mine just sounded better with the same settings. Maybe a little "meaner," if that makes any sense. I typically run the volume at about 4 and the MTI one really cut through whereas the others seemed a little more buried. Side note: I've entertained the notion in the past of buying a 70's SVT replacement head cabinet and faceplate from Fliptops and mounting my MTI chassis in it, solely because I prefer the cosmetics of the older heads (definitely don't plan on ever selling this amp, so I would never consider scamming anyone into believing it was a USA 70's SVT). Does anyone know if this would work without any modifications?
