    Well, it's not worth getting an SVT3 to go with an NV610. If you already have the SVT3, then I say get the NV610 now and save your money for a better amp later. :)
     
  2. It's ALWAYS worth getting a NV610 as long as you don't want the hi tops of a tweeter.

    My current cab is a Lab Systems 410HLC, which is a ported 8ohms cab with a tweeter.. I don't think I'd miss the tweeter though, I like to use a bit of overdrive and sometimes fuzz so I generally run the tweeter really low anyway.

    Really leaning towards getting the Berg when I have the money then and not having to worry about a cab when I can afford a VR or similar. I'm sure the 3 will do me fine for a good few years at least, though.
     
  4. If U use OD & fuzz the NV610 will be SWEET AS!! Pity I sold mine to NSW a few months ago. Still got the NV215 tho!

    Wish I snapped that up!

    Just out of curiosity, is there a reason for the unsymmetrical styling of the NV610 or is it just a certain look Bergantino was going for? It looks really ODD to me.
     
  6. Dunno- email Jim Bergantino- he's good to deal with. All the NV cabs pretty much have it- the 412, the 215 & yep the 610. The Aguilar GS412 has it also..

    Man you oughta try the NV215 with yr T-bird- Would sound HUGE! Welcome to try the 3PRO thru it too. The NV215 aint a LONG way from the 610 - it's a VERY tight sounding 215. Also have a Berg HS410 which is in the same BALLPARK as the NV610 too

    It's got to do with dispersion and image of the sound. It's part of his engineering. I think it looks pretty cool...

    I am the hardest guy I know to please in terms of punch and volume that a cabinet can handle. I've played through countless Ampeg 8X10s and never quite understood what the love was all about. I bought myself an NV610 and it is without a doubt the best single cab I ever played through. After about 15 years of searching for the right amplification for myself, I am completely satisfied. I paired my berg with a carvin BX500. I can get any sound I want at any volume I've needed thus far.
     
  10. I picked up my NV610 without hearing it. That was one of the best things that I have ever done for my tone.

    Another vote for the NV610. I had heard other people play out of them a few times and enjoyed it but when I got mine recently and played with my metal band again...SO GOOD. It makes you sound better- somehow I feel like I'm playing better too. It just sits perfectly in any band mix. Well, maybe not a tiny jazz combo...
    If you can justify the expense and you like that sweet sweet bass tone, then DO IT.

    I A/Bed the Berg AE410, NV610, and NV412 with an Eden WT800B at Bass Central in Central Florida.

    All of the cabs were awesome.:eek:

    I kept coming back to the NV412, so I bought it.:hyper:
    I also bought the MusicMan StingRay 5 H Piezo fretless that was I was playing with these rigs.:)
