    I'm going to start playing out more and may need something a little more portable. I've got:

    Ampeg SVP preamp-just serviced, had a faulty pot replaced and the tech redid all of the solders.
    Crown XLS 202 Power amp 500 watt 4ohm mono amp
    Older Fuhrman power strip--front lights are burned out
    DBX 262 stereo rack compressor

    All in an older (not roto) 6 space SKB rack or a wooden/carpeted road rack.

    I'm looking for an all-in-one hopefully with a compressor and tube pre section. Again, the setup above is great, but I live in NYC and need to take the subway and it's a lot of stuff to haul.

    Sorry, not looking to sell-- only trade. If I can't trade it, I'll keep it. I love this rig-- it's just a little bit unweildy for the subway.

    bump... anyone else interested.

    Might be willing to break it up for trades... I'm really looking to get around a 500 watt head.
     
  5. The mesa m-pulse 600 is almost exactly what you've specified above.

    Just a suggestion.

    I think you'd be better off trying to sell it and get yourself an Eden 550. Tube, compressor, fairly light at 20 lbs. and sounds great.

    I think you're probably right... any idea what a reasonalbe price to sell the whole rig would be? I'm guessing, though, that I'd have to piece it out.

    Its been a really solid amp without any problems. It's a pretty no-frills kind of thing. One thing to note is that to bridge it mono you have to build a cable from radio shack. Its' not that hard to do (it's just a matter of plugging adapters together) but something to know.
     
  11. if its still available Ill buy the svp thanks!

    Exactly what I was thinking. The compressor on it is great.
