Lose the Acoustic keep the peavey.
Sell the Acoustic, and find yourself a used SVT810E and be done with it.
They can go for a little as 50% of retail (and maybe even less!).
SCORE ONE for the good guys all the way 'round!
^THIS. People can't give these away!
That's why they are so cheap. I think that so many people bought one, seeing them out there and thinking that it will "instantly transform their playing" when in reality, they weren't that hot a player to begin with!
I'm always on the passive hunt for another one to give me that magic number of 2 cabs (cash on hand depending, of course).
A used Ampeg 810 is the way to go. Look on CL. (Just be sure it's plywood, not OSB)
They go cheap. Maybe trade in on a used one @ GC?
In response to your original question, yes, the Acoustic should be totally fine.
Thank you. They are brand new and sound good with my VB2. I am very partial to 15's though because of my Fender Rumble 200 combo and the 115 extension cab. I haven't got the head yet as it is in transit from Dallas and I'm in Alaska. It could take a bit. As soon as it gets here, I would like to post bragging pictures of it! Of course, every one on TB knows what an Ampeg SVT looks like!
I'd play through your different speaker options and use whatever sounds best to you.
For the HPF/LPF thing, I always have a HPF on my computer interface to protect my speakers and headphones. I usually only play out with my HPF when using a woofey bass like my SG. Though I've considered buying a Broughton Low+HPF to always use on my gigs.
I do have an unnatural fear of using pedals. Not due to ease of use but because I already spend too much money on bass gear
Either way enjoy that beastly new amp! I'm sure something you currently have will work great. You can always upgrade down the road.
Literally laughed out loud when I read this
I move to suggest all HPF's be branded as "Stumbo Endorsed" from now, into eternity.
Don't confuse the poor fellow. Let him enjoy his new amp in peace for at least a couple weeks.
3 weeks, tops!
Too late, I'm easy to confuse! I mean, I was born good lookin', not smart!
Make sure ypu listen for speaker farts if you got ‘m, turn it down a notch.
Tom, IMO, you just bought the best sounding amp on planet Earth!
Of all the amps I have owned since the early 70's, the SVT-VR was hands down the best sounding amp I have ever owned. The only reason I sold it was, at my age (62), I had too much difficulty schlepping it. But that tone (and feel) was da bomb!
I'm certainly happy to hear that. I'm 55, and I've wanted one for as long as I can remember. But I wanted a USA built Ampeg so it took a while. I suppose I won't be lugging it around though, its 80 pounds!!!!
Nice!!! The SVT-VR that I had was a USA version as well. It's a great amp!
