Ok, first off, just registered here, longtime lurker tho. I've gained quite a bit of insight here so I figure this would be the best place to ask. Currently playing an Aguilar AG500SC, which is nice and has great tone, the only problem is its not the tone I want. I do a lot of hard rock and power/prog metal and really dig a ballsy tube-driven sound. Played on an SVT-CL at the local GC and found a tone close to what I like. That said tho, it's a lil outta my price range at the moment and haven't seen any used ones that are. Been searching the net and have found what I feel are 3 options. I'm watching an older SVT2PRO on ebay that would probably be my first option. If that doesn't pan out, there were a couple of SVP-PRO preamps that were really decently priced to where I could probably pick up a good power amp. I figure that would be just as good as the SVT2PRO, right? And the 3rd, and kinda wildcard option, an EBS TD650 that's within my budget. I've heard nothing but great things bout EBS amps and have demoed a couple pedals too. It's got tube driven OD which sounds right up my alley and plenty of power behind it. My question is to anyone who's played on the EBS, is it capable of such sounds? Any and every opinion right now would be very helpful. Don't have a local EBS dealer so actually playing one is out of the question. My brain is sayin Ampeg because I know what it is capable of, but curiousity is telling me EBS.
