ampeg basic questions?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by r_simonini, Aug 10, 2002.


  1. The basses I own (fbass and curbow exotic petites) are definitely satisfying me. Even my SWR 350head is quite nice but I need to get a cabinet that makes sense with the rest of my gear. price is not the issue.....within reason.

    So far the aguilars have impressed me the most but I have wanted to look into the ampeg svts 8*10 cabniets. I know they are sort of the standard cabinet but does anyone have some strong feedback.
    Do they last a long time?
    Are the vintage models much different that the newer ampegs?
    With my choice of, otherwise, modern gear, is the ampeg heg head going to make sense?
    With all 10's is the sound carry substantial low end?
    Do any modern players(sound wise) use them?

    Thank you for your help.

    You're welcome. :)

    I would definitly try before you buy. I've played Aguilar amps & cabs & I liked them alot but not more than my Ampeg gear.
