    i have a mesa 400+ but i want a warmer, more overdriven sound, basically an svt, if i need to go out and buy an 8x10 and an svt i will, but it would just be easier to get the sansamp. do you any of you guys think this is what i'm looking for? how close do these two sound to svtish, doesn't have to be exactly the same as an svt but hopefully in the same ballpark for warmth and growl. thanks.
     
  2. Sansamp+400+= bad news. Like wearing contacts with your eyeglasses. I had a PSA-1 and a 400+ and the two together were redundant, don't bother. Get yerself some sorta grindey OD stompbox or EQ your rig differently (all pull shifts engaged, run parallel into both inputs, ignore graphic....)
     
  3. Really.....what does he mean?? My ol' 400+ was like playing through chocolate puddin'.
    :D
