    .....I almost cashed it all in. I was running around town which I seldom do anymore and I made a pitstop at one of my guitarshop haunts. There were several original GA5 LP jr amps there and I was eyeing up an early blackface Princeton then my eyes caught the Ampeg SVT-CL and I was selling off my gear in my head to try to get this. It was a very insane moment but I got over it eventually. I was itemizing what I could get for everything and there would have been plenty left over.

    I'm not quite sure what I would do with a 300 watt tube bass amp with an 8x10 cabinet but for several hours there I was willing to find out!:D

    Glad you came to your senses Gary. The main thing you would get out of an 8x10 cabinet is a hernia! But those SVT heads are sweet sweet sweet!

    Excellent exercise in restraint my friend. Many has been the time I jumped on a buy just to regret it later. This sounds like what might have happened with you had you "cashed in".

    That amp sucks.

    Get a REAL SVT (I got 2 - 1969 and 1971). It's all I use with my upright. And I only use a 4 X 10 - it's all I need.

    We played to 1200 people last night - and I checked with the people in the back. They heard JUST FINE.

    And I had the bridge channel on 3, the fingerpoard channel of 4.
