    Ended up plugging into an SVT-CL locally for old time's sake. Shouldn't have.

    I reek of sweet tubey goodness. Can't get it out of my head.

    Obsessing.

    Gas pains are overcoming me.

    Never should have gotten rid of mine.

    Dammit.

    Ugh...

    I feel your pain...nothing like an Ampeg svt on top of a 810.

    Thank you! Quite proud of my SVT...it's a custom with a Heyboer output transformer. And yep, it's a mac daddy DI...the A-Designs REDDI. I used to mic, but one out of every five gigs with an unfamiliar soundman (due to circumstances beyond our control, we can't use our own soundman on every gig) resulted in an argument. So I figured I better just throw the most tube-amp-sounding DI I could find at them, and the REDDI was the one that hit my buttons.

    You moving your own equpment after gigs? If so, next gig, at 2:00, think about whether you still want the SVT. I love the sound, but like to be able to carry my entire rig (bass, head, 2x12 cab) in one trip.

    If you paired an SVT with an SVT 212av, you could make that a 1-trip loadout if you have a decent cart.

    I used to have one; back in the day. I liked it well enough.
    I don't miss moving a ~95lb head.

    Oh, I won't pretend that moving it is a walk in the park by any means. This is why I often suggest the new V4B to those who want an SVT but are wigged out by the schlep. It's half the weight of the SVT's and really puts out for a 100w amp.

  15. Hey JimmyM - I've had the same issue with inconsistent soundmen. I ended up putting a Palmer speaker PDI 03 between my head and my cabinet. It disconnects the load of the palmer and uses your cab instead. However, it allows both your preamp and power tube sections to be in the send to the FOH console. It is absolutely wonderful. Check one out of you get a chance. It was definitely the answer for me....

    +1 for Ampeg tubey goodness by the way.....

    Have considered one, probably would use it if I got as good a deal on one as I did the REDDI, but since I already have it, I just use the VT Deluxe set near flat with no distortion for a speaker sim into the REDDI. I like it ;)
     
  18. LMAO..... there are some cruel bastards on T.B. but the fact of the matter is that now , having played one , you really MUST have one. That's right..... you MUST have one. And two 8 10 cabs. At least two , maybe three so you have one for the practice room. And a caravan or P.U. truck to haul them around in. And custom covers so they can't possibly get messed up in transport. And a wireless so you can go to the other end of the building and see how good it really sounds.
    My son just saw this post and made some comment that I'm really not a good person. Phhfffft.:rolleyes:

    Never worried for covers they are heavy and I had a wireless once didn't care for it either. Let my friend use it one day and he left the building during his solo. He back in with a wet knee.
