    Just got my SV20 and using it with a 1x12 Suhr cab and Weber Mini Mass and it sounds great but now want a compact 2x12 cab to use with it. Any recommendations. Thanks in advance.

    If you have a rhythm & bass player can you try the gold & report back with your opinion?

    A 1966B is a great 2x12, size wise it is slightly wider than the SV20H. G12T75's in mine. These are plywood cabinets with an MDF back panel. I also stack a 1965A 4x10 on top and run my SV20H through both. It's not a full stack, it's not a mini stack... What would you call it, I guess? Looks badass and sounds great, though.

    Do you use the bass side for anything?

    What pedals do you use with it. How is it on clean work?

    Well .... I also have a Fender Jazz Bass that I occasionally use with it ..... but mainly use it for Guitar...
    I use an ancient 1st run modded MXR Micro Amp pedal as a clean boost . Sounds great !!! :)
    Clean tones sound like a Stratocaster .... cause that's what I use for clean tones when I'm not just cleaning up this or that guitar w/ volume knob. :)

    Also ... I cannot wait to get my hands on an SV20 in about a month or so ... I'm ready.

    David Vee has some very handy settings for these on TGP ( Marshall 2061x Love) thread.
    You can jumper channels like a plexi!
    I was gassing for one of these a while back but @ the 11th hour pulled the trigger on the SV20H ( they were just released here at that time ) & a custom made 1x12 which suited my budget perfectly then. Still have bad gas for a 2061x though.

    Just pickup up mine yesterday and wanted to give it a quick 1min fling this morning to see if everyhting is fine. hooked up my 4x12 greenback x g12t75 put it in 5w mode with my volume on the guitar open, fidling on the strings with my left hand while openening the treble channel a bit too enthousiastic with my right hand... yeow instant uppercut! still impressed each time with how loud 5 watt can be. tonight it jettenuator night!

    Good News! The SV 20 head has dropped in price in the UK from £849 to £725

    I suppose sales are slowing.

    cranked the powersection tonight with a jettenuator. that's where the beast lives with volumes at 7-8 woa. very nice kronk and response!

    what so you guys use the boost it into singing and harmonics? and how do you set it? like boosting a front with drive dailed back and volume up on drive pedals or the other way round?

    I saw someone get a deal on another thread for £656, so deals are around if you keep your eyes open.

    Having said that, I've had mine 8 months now and it's been used a lot, so I can live with having paid £800 or so for it.

    Usually I only use the volume knob on the guitar, but I have used a TC Spark Boost as a Clean boost with great result

    But his sound was so much better through the 1987x, which he was plugged into for most of the video (IMO).

    I agree, but I'd attribute it more to the cab & possibly just draping the e609 over the speaker...

    Who knows, possible, but hard to say without a true A/B comparison. Not sure about mic'd, but a 4x12 always sounds better "in the room" (IMO).
