    I ordered this in November, and it finally came in. :)

    I have to say, it has to be the nicest looking Ampeg cab I've ever used!

    Tone? Second only to the SVT 810 I used at my old jam space.

    Some people were saying this thing is boomy & undefined...I'm sorry but you're wrong. Paired with my PF-500 head at neutral settings, this thing has a very diverse tone that is not muddy, boomy or undefined. In fact, I had to turn the tweeter to the -6dB position to avoid the clanking being too loud for my sloppy slap style playing. :)

    Pics will be up tonight, as I'm currently posting from work.

    Cool--wish it had cups on top for an SVT. I'd be concerned about tearing that nice blue tolex.

    Blue? It's black. :p Luckily, the PF series has rubber feet on all models, so it won't damage the cab. :D
