    I've never tried it on a gig, but I had my SWR Redhead combo and an EBS 2x10 combo in the studio, and compared both of them. The producer felt the SWR was better hands down, but in all fairness, we're doing rock music, and I don't know if rock is the EBS' forte'.

    I've played through both cab, extensively, but not at the same time. I found that I just loved the EBS. I also like their 4x10 cab, too.

    Keep in mind that these were just tried out in a music store setting so I can't comment on the live tone.

    I've just not been a fan of the latter day SWR tone. They've just not been my cup of tea. Not bad...just not for me.
