Hey people! Been spending alot of time lately looking into Ampeg products and what-not. I thought the SVT410HLF would be the one I would get, but after going over around 30 or so reviews tonight I've noticed that nearly every one says that the tolex covering is very weak and prone to rip, the cloth grille is easily torn and often falls off, plus the little silver coner protecter things seem to come loose... Not a good wrap eh? So I was looking through the Ampeg products tonight and saw the SVT412HE. Read the very few reviews that there are on the net and everyone seems to say that this thing is as solid as a brick wall, indestructable!!! Which is always good. However I have heard the "attenuator" can make things sound clanky. I don't even know what an ettenuator is! And what is an "L-Pad"? I only want a single-cab setup so the 410HLF is good (apparently has lots of low end). And the 412 would be good also, I mean, it's a 4x12!!! Low end to boot!!! As for my playing, I play a EB Stingray4, usually in BEAD or EADG tuning. The only effect I use is distortion, which I like quite alot and use moderatly. This cab will be run through an Ampeg SVT-3PRO. I play metal and hard rock. What do you guys think? Which would be the best? Cheers, READ BEFORE REPLYING: It would be much appreciated if there are no comments telling me to go with a different brand, different Ampeg model suggestions are more than welcome, but I have researched long and hard and I have decided on Ampeg. Also unfortunatly I don't have the oppertunity to go test these cabs out. Thanks!
