Recommended Posts

I have always wanted to try an Ampeg SVT amd and 8x10 cab, but cost always denied me

At the studio we rehearse in they have one, so I thought I would try it (always usually take my Markbass rig)

and..... Wow!  its sooooo LOUD!   and heavy... I could hardly lift the amp!

all in all tho.... prefer my Markbass rig!!   lol  

 

oh well....  

and my strap lock button fell out of my bass!!!!  eek!

As I've had a few "fulfilled" dreams myself, I was expecting this to be a very different thread, given the title.

But, to stay on topic, i also had a go with an SVT and 8x10 at our local rehearsal room and was also left a bit underwhelmed. I wonder if they sound better in a decent sized venue at gig volumes rather than in a rehearsal room where - even though they sound loud - they're not being stretched enough to sound their best.

Whatever, it wasn't the earth-moving experience I was expecting....

I did some work where they were provided once. They were nice, but when one was not working and they put me into a big sidefill. I heard an extra octave of low frequency extension. That was when I stopped craving an SVT

Imo on a big stage, in the mix, they’re the daddy, simply cannot be best. But in a rehearsal room, or played solo I find them a bit meh. And carrying a flightcased SVT head and 810 is something I never want to have to assist with again.
