Hi, I am going to be upgrading from my peavey combo115 with an extension 2x12 to a better amp in the next week or two but i am still not sure what i want. I dont live close to any music stores that have anything other that beat up old junk so its going to be tough to try out any amps. I would like to steer away from a combo and go with a head and cabinet stack, and i will almost definitely be getting used gear (more bang for the buck). Some of the heads i was considering was the Ampeg SVT3 pro, the SVT350H, or the B2R. Also I was considering an swr bass 350 or one of the SM models. I have never tried any of these though so i am kind of unsure. I am almost sure however that the cab i will be getting is an SVT810, just because i think they are cool as hell. I have heard that SWR amps through ampeg cabs dont mix well but I dont know if thats true or not. I play in a 3 piece rock/metal band (black sabbath, pink floyd, etc) with a LOUD drummer and a 50 watt and 4x12 guitarist. My current 300 watt setup isnt quite cutting it, which i am pretty sure is due to the mediocre speakers. I dont much care for the sound of the bigger speakers anymore either, theyre just too dull and dead sounding (no punch or clarity), but again theyre not the greatest ones out there. Oh, by the way i play a '73 ric 4001 and a Fender jazz. I have anywhere between $1000, and $1200 to spend on the whole setup. Any insight into what you fellas would reccomend is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
