    please,is there somebody who knows the EBS fafner head here?
    i would like to have your opinions on it,and if possible ,i would like a comparison to svt3pro i own.
    thx
     
  2. There is no comparison--the Fafner stomps all over the SVT3 Pro.

    The Fafner is LOUD LOUD LOUD, has a much more powerful EQ section and an excellent onboard compressor, and most importantly can get the Ampeg tone if you want--whereas you really cannot tweak an Ampeg to sound like a Fafner.

    If you've got the opportunity to get a Fafner for $800 or less, take it.

    It's the most versatile head i've ever owned,
    like Pete said your able to get that SVT grunt by using the Drive control and Charater button.

    If your into slapping it does'nt get any better than this.

    2 ohms no problem,takes it like a bee to honey.
     
  4. Do you have the older Fafner or the newer one? I really wonder whether I can run mine (the older one without the front-panel DI) at 2 ohms...

    I have the older one.
    A friend of mines used my rig once (at least someone's using it:( ) hooked up parallel with two 4 ohms cab, sounded great.

    I hope that answers you're question.
     
  6. Sure does.

    I also think the Fafner blows the Ampeg out of the water. As Peter said, it's loud, incredibly versatile, and is very user-friendly.

    IMO, there's no other amp that can do as much, as well as the Fafner.
