So I'm in the market for a new head to Roid up my tone and bring some power to my life... I want clean powerful classic rock tone but also I want to be able to get the Hard rock/metal sound of a strong overdrive, i want to know if the SVT can deliver because I know the Mesa can give me the overdrive. Ampeg SVT 2 (non-pro) Pros: Lots of positive feedback on forums, sounds great( I liked what i heard, when i tried it out myself today)- very powerful and has balls. I don't care that it weighs 85 lbs. Cons: It is used, I may have to change the tubes. I can't find too much info from Ampeg on the SVT 2 because it is discontinued. Mesa Boogie Big Block 750 Pros: I'd get a new head instead of a used 1, with a 5 year warranty. It has good tone, power and beautiful overdrive. Tube pre-amp. It is straight-forward and easy to understand. Also has balls. Cons: It doesn't give me the classic SVT tone and will cost me more because it is new (and will take lots of saving up). If I want overdrive from the SVT Can i get it with a pedal or some other means?
