    I tried looking for some reviews/specs on these cabs. I can't find any that have the stripe on the front. The are ampeg svt 210 and svt 18 classics. Are they the same as other classics? All ones I see on google don't have the stripe on them. Does anybody know anything about these? They are beat up but the guy says they sound great. I can probably pick them up for $300

  2. Hey, unsure on the cabs, but if you e-mail Ampeg, (just go to their site) they are probably gonna be able to help you.
    Good luck

    The stripe was probably a customization.

    Looks like one of the owners was quite keen on the paintwork design of Shelby automotive and had go faster stripes painted on the front grill cloth.:bassist:
  7. 3 bills for both? SCORE. Buy now. (BTW, i'm ALL USA-made Ampeg myself...)

    or perhaps the late 60's early 70's Chevy SS models
    (why did I ever sell that 1970 SS396 Chevelle) :eek:

    Does it not say on the back? You can tell by the serial if the model is worn off.

    Top is either a 210HE or possibly a HEN. Bottom would be a 118 HE or HEN. Grills are painted, as posted before. My first cab was a 410HEN. These look to have been used a few times ;)

    Thanks guys. I'm gonna go scoop em up wednesday. I've actually seen other ampeg cabs that had this stripe on them before so I don't know if it's custom. I guy that used to play bass for my buddies band had some smaller cabs like portaflex's that had the stripe.
