Hey everybody! I have this Acoustic 470 guitar/bass head.. I havn't played thru it in a while but after buying this HD-212 I decided to play thru them together (along with an HD-210) just to see what it all sounded like... Man was I impressed. The tone was so thick, that is the best way I can describe it. Almost made my StingRay sound a little bit like the sadowsky I heard at basstasters, "thick". Now, the problem is that the Acoustic 470 is only like 170watts I think... I mean it all goes fairly loud but not loud enough and I am scared to push it as these cabs want way more power than a measily 170watts. I normally play thru a Sansamp RBI using this Fender BXR 300c as power (only 300watts at 4ohms, I know) and I get good tones, but I don't gert a "thick" old school sortof tone like what the Acoustic gets me. I guess what I am wondering is, can anyone recommend an amp or preamp that will get me close to this type of tone? ampeg? peavey? I played thru a vintage SVT once and it was very thick, but I can't go that route right now. I was thinking of picking up an svp-pro or svt-IIp or possibly a peavey max but I have never played through any of them and don't really have the opportunity to play thru any of them. I know I really do have to play thru these gizmos before I know if I will like them or not, I was just hoping I could get a bit of feedback from others who might know where I am coming from. Thanks in advance.
