Dude, Its just too darn heavy and it doesn't like being driven/moved around. Also for about the same price you could buy a Carvin full-stack with 3X the power. I sometimes regret not getting a GK, they are light and very powerful. At 300watts its probably one of the lowest powered heads in the market however it doesn't sound like 300watts... It sounds like 700+watts, it can handle a medium size venue(300-500) effortlessly and work as a "house amp" for hours on end day after day. I've had trouble with high-wattage amps, when pushed they tend to chirp, quit or just sound plain awful,, no such(bad) luck with my Classic.. when my classic is pushed it drowns out the other instruments (I've even drown out the drum's!)but enough talk about power. Lets talk about tone. Have you ever heard a true hi-end component stereo? the kind where you hear new sounds/instruments/vibes on a CD you've listened to a 100 times before, well thats what it sounds like. The first time you hear it, its like tasting bacon for the first time. I had a colleague use my classic for his Country weekend gigs being that his full-stack quit(I have a half-stack & play rock), he immediately complained about the weight & the lack of "bells & whistles". My colleague is one cheap SOB but he went out and bought one Monday morning. I've owned this head for 18+ months and use it for weekly practice and gig with it 5 or more times per month doing 3hour shows and it sounds like the day I brought it home. The head weight 80 pounds but it feels like a hundred, I love my svt classic but its just too darn heavy. The only words of advice I have is DONT BE CHEAP when it comes to your music, if you settle for second best thats what you'll alway be.... second best. This amp sounds & means business.
