Thanks for the update, Shake, and it's also good to know that ops posted here come in useful. Picking through a Peavey never worked out for me. At best, I'd maybe manage that Cameo sound which is fine (red codpieces work wonders for me) but it's not very classic rock.

I'm not trying to diss a GK head I've never used, but the spec just seems to be aimed at the gdoink-gdank bassist rather than the whump-thump type. A bit of valve, even just 12AX7/ECC83 in the preamp and a SS power stage, adds that little bit of sag for authentic retro sound. Perhaps your chum at GC wasn't fully aware of the genre you're playing. If you can get some time with the SVT3 (pity they don't stock Ashdown) I'm 99% sure you'll get that Damascus/Eureka moment.

It may even be worth concentrating your resources on the head and compromising, temporarily, with the cab. IME with FleebUK, big 2nd hand cabs (collection only, no shipping etc) can be bought cheaply if within driving distance.
