    hello, i have a EBs HD350 whit a neo 1x12.

    i´m not so happy whit my current rigg becuse i think it´s a little bit to "clear" and hifi sounding, my style is the "dirty", Heavy sound u can get out of a Ampeg SVT classic.


    my question is:

    should i keep my current rigg or should i try to trade it for something els?

    and maby what could i trade it for?

    i don´t have any money that i can pay the diffrens between let´s say a SVT classic.
     
  2. if you can't get the sound you are looking for by turning up the drive knob, then I guess you could trade it for an SVT3-PRO? I dunno what you can get for the ebs in your country, but the EBS still has a bit more headroom than the SVT3-pro, even though they are rated at the same power...
     
  3. If your current rig is loud enough but you are looking for a more classic, tube-like tone, the Mesa Walkabout head might do to trick... small and light like the HD350 and about the same wattage. The Walkabout is very warm, tubey and grindy sounding.

    Or you can upgrade to a EBS Fafner..
    The Ashdown EVO II is a very good match with the EBS Neo 112 too. I played one of these with my two neo`s the other day, and really liked it. This amp is a bargain.
    The Ampeg SVT3 is to weak to get the best out of your cab IMO.
    What bass are you playing?
