alright...so this sucks. i sold my hartke 3500. i have power amp. i was going to buy an ampeg svp pro from this guy, but i haven't heard back from him in a few days, and i really want the amp, but i tried emailing him, but it said that his address doesn't exist anymore. the other one i was thinking about getting is about 7 years old, and the guy isn't the original owner, so i'm alittle weary about it. i haven't found any other ones for sale that i can afford. i'd rather get a good used one. so now i'm thinking that maybe i'll just get a peavey max, or sansamp rbi new. i don't know. what do you all think. i really want the ampeg sound, but can't afford new right now. any help with an svp in great condition, or your thoughts on the other two would be great.
