I've narrowed my amp choices down to these two. The SVT-3 is $1250 US and the B2R is $850 US. These are the best prices that I can find (I live in Australia). The head that I buy will go with my SVT-4x10HEN (500 watts) that I bought a while ago. I play in a 3 piece punk band that has me, a guitarist using a 60 watt valve fender and a drummer. So I would like to know... *Does the B2R have the same sound as the SVT-3? Or does it sound different as it does not have preamp tubes? *Do you think the extra cash worth it for the SVT-3? I'm going to go and test them all out with my cabinet, but for now I'd just like some opinions on what you guys think.
