I've been using my vocalist's Carvin 810 forever (I'm a broke music student attending NAU) and finally picked up my first cab today. Ampeg 610HLF for $550. The guy that owned it just wanted to make room in his garage and apparently used it lightly since he bought it less than a year ago. It has slight tolex wear on the left but I'm fine with it. Needless to say I'm VERY happy right now.
