Unfortunately I cannot try before I buy. I've just sold my Epi UL212 S2 cause it wasn't me. Didn't cut through at rehearsal. I'm still using my 8ohm Laney 410 cab which sounds OK, I just need more oomph. Maybe a really good single 410 or 2 x 410's or 410 and 210???? I'm interested in the EA due to reputation. All comments appreciated.
