I have a SVT-AV (basically just a dressed up SVT-CL). It's nice, I like it a lot. It weighs a friggin' ton. It's been my experience (and really, this is only with Ampeg stuff) that tube amps break CONSTANTLY and are very expensive to repair. Last night the volume started to cut out at the end of the set, tone turned to mushy-mush. This didn't work out because I play in a band that is just a bass player and drummer. To just crap out on me was very frustrating. Today, the amp sounds fine, I wonder if the tubes weren't overheating (although I have recently replaced all of the tubes). So anyways, thinking about getting a Little Mark II. I know the LMIII is coming out eventually, but it seems to be similar enough not to make a big difference (I don't really care about the line-out, maybe the limiter will be good?). The LM Tube intrigues me, but people who've tested it seem to like the LM II's sound better. Should I get a Markbass? What I really like about the SVT is the mid-range. I crank the midrange (high-mids, 4 on the dial). That's the sound I like. What to do?
