Personally I much prefer the 2 to the 4 but the 2 is a heavy beast.

Need to check that the valves are in very good condition because a complete re-valve on a 2 can be big money :(

The 2 pro is better than the 4 IMO but it's ludicrously heavy.

I agree.
If you can find out how well that 2 pro has been taken care of.If it's been serviced lately I wouldn't hesitate.

The springs on the valve retainers should not break the valves. I have a Pro II and would not want to swap it despite the weight. His sound's like a lemon and maybe that's why he's trying to off-load it.

A bassist I tech for had no end of reliability issues with his SVT2s, old and new ones. After some coaxing from me and borrowing my lightweight head for a few shows he decided a change was in order. He's ended up going Aguilar and doesn't miss the SVT one bit. If your SVT4 is solid and reliable I don't think i'd risk a trade for an amp of unknown history that could be really expensive to maintain if you have problems with it.
