I just came home with an SWR SM-900 head and Megoliath 8x10 cab. this rig pushes 900 watts at 4 ohms MONO!!!!!! more volume and cut than I'll ever need. the first SWR rig I tried was a SM-500 head and their 4x10 cab..the Goliath III I believe it was. it just didn't give me the tone I was looking for. but man the 900 head is awesome and that bigass 8x10 cab can relocate my house very easily.
now the best part- I'm actually able to get that gritty sound by using the passive input and cranking the preamp gain. (I use hot EMG pickups as well) the dirt is better sounding than the Rat pedal and the noise level is practically ziltch. when I dig into the E string...yeoww my bowels loosen heh
