    Being a luthier more than a player, I have a question!
    I have in my possession an Ampeg 4x8 Classic Series cabinet.
    Does anyone have an idea of value and is this something that would be sold easily?

    They don't come up very often but the last one I saw was for sale couple of years ago for $400. I know the seller wasn't getting much interest and dropped the price several times. I don't think it ever sold.

    I saw an 8x6 Ampeg cab for sale on Craigslist for $100 in StL...and I almost grabbed it out of curiosity.


    far as I know, it didn't sell.

    They are great sounding cabs, good on top of a 15. But a bit of a hard sell since its unusual.

    i own one that i got on a trade a GC for a 2x10 that i shall not name. it had the stock poly drivers. GC price was $199 used. i ended up overexcurding one of the stock polycone/ rubber surround drivers, so i opted to change all 4 for mcm paper cone, cast frame drivers. it increased the cabs wattage handling from 200W to 320w program, 600w peak. made a huge difference in the sound too. i have been a Henry 8x8 cab user for years, butthis is my first Ampeg cab since i had an SVT in the 70's. you'll probably have to screw the grill to the cab too as they falll off. i did agig with it lladt friday and it was a spectacular bass monitor. band i was subbing with had two huge JBL powered subs, so i didnt have to worry about super low end. these cabs are super rare, but i like 8's so im definetely gonna keep it.
