    How would this rig sound with a Ibanez SR485 in a heavy metal band?

    1) 1X Steelsound Knight 2x15 (Small gigs or gigs with PA support) or 2x Steelsound Knight 2x15 (Large gigs w/ no PA support)
    2) Yorkville AP2020
    3) Ampeg SVP-BSP
  2. What sound are you after? What is the budget?

    I'm looking for a slightly gritty tone with hella bottom end :hyper:

    My budget is whatever I can scrape together.
  4. If you like Ampeg sound and you don't mind weight, I'd suggest checking out the used SVT-II at BNW ($900).
    Pair that with a Bergantino 610 (they run about $1000) if you can afford it and you have a monsterous, loud, awesome sounding rig. A good used Mesa 400+ would be awesome as well. Gets me tons of bottomy grit.

    That would be cool, although out of my budget, unless someone decides to buy my old stack, then it would be in my budget...
  6. How much does all the gear you listed add up to?

    Guessing the $1000 area, I see where you are going with this, but my logic is I can assemble this rig piece by piece over time, then later upgrade each piece.

    My reasoning behind this selection is that fact that I have used all three items, and enjoyed using all of them thoroughly.
  8. Where do you live? If you already have some cabs, I'd look for a good used Ampeg SVT-II or Mesa 400+ because from experience they capture the tone you described the best from my ears. I'd also take the -II over the 400+ for that tone.

    I really like the AP2020 so far... I'm running it from the Pre on my XS400H and the combo sounds amazing through an Avatar 410 Pro with a 1X15. You can't beat Yorkville for the price/performance/warranty ratio.
