I am looking to upgrade my rig ready for my bands tour this spring. During the writing/rehearsing stages along with playing gigs where they did not require me to bring a cab, I have been using a Trace Elliot ELF. I think this is an outstanding bit of kit that is not only portable but packs a real punch, especially in our band that has two guitars to integrate with. I have traditionally been a Trace Elliot man but am torn whether to go for an Ampeg SVT head and cabinet or even stick to a Trace just with a bit more power for bigger venues. Despite hours and hours of research looking at reviews, test run throughs and what professional players are using, I cannot pin-point which head would be best suited. The SVT 7 pro, Gallien Krueger and Mark Bass amps have come up quite a lot in discussion for the head and that would then help decide the cab to match. I may prefer 10" speakers rather than the low rumble of a 15" but wondered if any recommendations from any experienced players out there that will help capture the varied tones for my band - think a blend of Black Stone Cherry, Alterbridge and the Answer. I use fender basses and Rickenbacker to try and drive the tone through and lead a few few verse sections that I want the beefy tone to rung through without becoming muddy and lost.
