    Anybody ever try this combination before? Do you think this would be capable of a dirty bass tone with lots of attack?

    Cabs will likely be a pair of GK 410SBX.

    I endorse & use Tech 21 pedals, Eminence loaded cabs, EMG pickups, Jim Dunlop picks & Ernie Ball Strings, BC Rich Basses.
    I have. lots of attack, yes. but dirty tone? probably not with that setup. I used Ampeg cabs and i used a Varidrive tube distortion pedal for grind. it sounded fantastic.

    regarding the overdrive, the CL doesn't have a real overdriven tone...full as all get out, but not over the top like it sounds like you're looking for. I love my SVPCL, but I don't play much distortion/metal/edgy stuff

    SVPCL+World 1.2: This is my exact setup... I love it. Weighs about 1/4th SVT head, and you can get pretty much the same sound if you want (but with other options with the very usable "Ultra-Low" tone selector.
  5. There are no dirty tones to be found in the SVP-CL

    I absolutely love my SVPCL but it doesn't do dirty at all. As a matter of fact once that clip light starts flashing on the input, it sounds downright bad.

    On the other hand I've never really heard any front end distortion that I liked so, maybe it's just me.
  7. If you want dirty better go for the SVP-Pro it has the extra drive tube.

    +1 it will get plenty of grind going.

    That was an old post.

    I'm stuck right now between my current setup, or a World 1.6 and Sansamp RBI, or a World 1.6 and SVP-BSP. I might just stick with the Yorkville since it is such a good amp for my style.
