" Two albums, Two tours, and 130 shows, can't be wrong, this cab has seen every stage condition imaginable, and it rocked them all!
It is a solum tower of black with a matte finish that has a take no prisoners look.
In the world of high performance bass cabs, the Ampeg SVT-810E stands tall and proud. In 1946, Everette Hull, an acomplished pianist and bass player, organized a partnership with Stanley Michaels under the name Michaels-Hull Electronic Labs.
Their mission was to produce a new microphone pickup that Hull designed.
The pickup was fitted on the end of an upright bass and was dubbed the Amplified Peg or Ampeg for short.
In 1949, Hull became the sole proprietor and changed the name of the company to the Ampeg Bassamp Company.
It’ll take a beating and never damage the wheels or Tolex. It's one of the few cabs you'll see still gigging in twenty years and still sounding amazing.
If you’re thinking about it just go ahead and do it. The band I played in for a while had one of these that was about ten years old and sounded amazing. And mine has treated me just as well(although I've only had it for a few months)I love that you can run the bottom four and top four speakers independantly.
You'd need five 18 inch or six 15 inch speakers to move as much air as the SVT-810E!From Mudvayne, Alice in Chains, Rage Against the Machine, to The Saints of Pain, and just about every other band that kicks xxxx in the bass department uses one of these.Turn on a record that you have loved the bass sound on in the last 30 years and you are really hearing one of these. I have my personal sound dialed in for this cab, and when I play clubs with aback line with it,,,, it is a personal sigh of relief.this was as used as the girls walking the street outside and sang better than my dreams Quality control is really the only thing that any company has.After 135 shows and two tours, mine have never let me down. 140 lbs, not the portable easy to move combo amp that you just throw in the back seat of your Honda Civic.
