I've been using ampeg for over 5 years now and recently updated myself to the svt1000 and the 4x10HLF. Let me tell you, this thing has everything you will need for any show! It's so powerful and loud even on six. Whats also nice is that it's still got the same style dial as the ba115 which I have become quite familiar with. The graphic EQ helps, but I prefer my boss geb-7 to be more specific with the sound. The texture button also adds a surprising element to your sound. It can power any amp and sound plenty good doing it. I highly recomend this to anyone looking get out of the combos and into the world of rigs!
While this head has been good to me it is definitly not delivering a full 1,000 watts of power. I've tried it through plenty of different cabinet combinations (an 8x10, two 4x10s, a single 4x10, 4x10 and 1x15, a few different 2x15) and just wasn't getting the power I was supposed to. I've tried everything to hear some more volume, better speaker cords, seperate power channels, running it on it's own circuit, and every other rediculously minor or major idea you can think of. I'm seeing the limiter light going off during PRACTICE. It's embarrasing spending so much money on a head and having to ask for the sound guy to turn you up in the monitors up because your amp is maxed out. Played next to other bassists (we shared cabs) who used amps rated at 500 watts @ 4 ohms (half this things "power") and having no troubles at all.As far as tone I got similiar tone out of the B2R, SVT - 4 and other ampeg heads. Ampeg is reliable and great for people playing jazz or funk but for those playing ska, punk, metal, and the sort (or just want to have an individual tone), Ampeg just isn't flexable enough and has to be incorrect on the power or carries the sissiest 1,000 watts ever seen.Save the bucks and buy a Carvin or Gallien-Krueger, HECK in retrospect, I'd go for BEHRINGER first!
I just bought the svt1000 and teamed it up with my svt410hlf and svt18, man now you are talking about earth shaking bass. I play a marcus miller 5 string,now I have the best sound ever,thinks ampeg for the best products and the power of bass.
