I'm looking to buy a new amp, an ampeg. I'm unsure what one i want (it will be a head and a cab i know for sure) As for heads I've narrowed it down to the V-4Bh or the SVT-3Pro Now cabs, I've also came to the concluesion that i want either the SVT-410HLF or the PR-410HLF. Now for the low down on everything... I like the 3PRO because its a rack mount and i want to assemble a rack with a power condensor, tuner, effects, compressor. Also the power and flexibility it seems to have. As for the tube preamp, i really like but I'm unclear how much of a difference it makes(maybe someone could please clear it up and tell me what I should listen for) Now the V-4Bh, I havent played it but I understand its basically the same as the Classic which i have played. I really like the fact that its all tube. Even though its only a 100 watts but still, 100 watts is a lot, it will be plenty because pretty much every show I will most likely be mic'd. What i dont like is that its not rack mountable. Now cabs... (sorry this is so long but I know you guys can help and I've been researching for months and found that this is the place i need to go for help and oppinions ) The SVT-410 is very nice, great lows and from what i remember playing with it, it had good highs aswell. The fact that its cheaper than the PR is nice too. But im unsure if it will get muddy at loud volumes and if ill lose clarity in my lows. But like the look of that cab... for what thats worth. The PR is such an incredible cab. The lows on it are amazing and it hits the mids and highs greatly too. I'm pretty sure that i wont lose my lows at loud volumes and my highs will still keep up with me. It also looks very reliable and sturdy. The music i play is hard to cadegorize, lots of diff styles but all are very bass involved. I play slap a lot, and bass lines that are more involved than normal. Now for your part in this mess... I would like comments on each piece of equipment and what would work best together and what wouldnt. Also for all of you who are owners of these fine pieces of work i would like your thoughts on them and any suggestions. Oh... I just got in a car accident too... I want to buy the rig that I will be happy with forever but I dont want to go balls out and spend everything. Cause yeah will need a new car soon but anyways i love bass more. Thank you so much for reading this and any comments would be muchly appreciated.
