for 400 you can't buy shit, you're better of getting your Ampeg svt(?) fixed. tubes don't cost THAT much.

what kind of pickups are you using? the ampeg I played had a great tone.

I have a Hughes & Kettner bassbase 400 now which has a really transparent clear tone, also packs a lot of punch. but its way out of your price range I guess.

retube it for under $400 bucks and then be amazed.
or sell it, use the money you sold it for + that $400, and buy a good new head.

Get heard...

Get a loud amp. No matter what. You want yourself heard. Anything less than 200 watts will not do. (Unless you are in a gay party band of course, which I assume you are not). Period.

I own a Hartke HA3500 amp which is great for medium gigs. I use it to power small on stage cabinets that provide the sound on stage. This amp costs little and is good enough.

For bigger stages I use a 600watt Warwick amp. Loud and noiseless. Far better quality than the Hartke, but also much more expensive and heavy as hell. But with this and two 300watt cabinets, you leave any guitarist shitting his leather pants.

My advice to any metal player who does not care a lot about the sound quality would be the Hartke. If you want better quality, choose a SWR head or one from Warwick. Still fair priced and very decent.

Oh and get a head and a separate cabinet. Not a stupid combo.
