I've recently fallen in love with the SVT tone by purchasing and playing through an SVT 2Pro. The one I have though, I must say is about to get thrown out the window as it is eating power tubes and no tech (including the UK's Ampeg Service Center) seems to have any reason why. So I am about to rack it up as a loss and start over - considering the money I've invested, it makes me sick... But I digress... I'm thinking of going with either a VR or an original 70's Blueline and I'm torn between the two (which seem to be comparably priced). The original has the cool factor, of course but functionally doesn't seem to have any other advantages from what I've read. The VR is new with warranty (which sounds good to me considering my track record with the 2Pro) and it seems some mods to bring it up to date over the original. I'm assuming either will get me a modest increase in tone over the 2Pro (again, from what I've read here - let me know if you disagree). I've been playing through a Berg NV412 and may or may not keep it if I go this route (I'm considering the matching 810 now that I have a vehicle capable of transporting it). Anyway, thoughts?
