At the moment I have a Marshall VBC 810, with the matching VBA400 head. I'm looking to get possibly a new head and/or cab. Yesterday I tried out an SVT-VR head with the 810AV cab, and also tried my head into the same cab. I was almost tempted by the head but am not sure at the moment. What I DIDN'T try was my head into the 810AV cab vs my VBC810 cab, and I really wish I had. My question at the moment is, what should I expect the difference in sound between the two cabs to be? I'm looking to tighten up my sound a little - at the moment my '66 EB-0 going into the marshall head and cab sounds lovely on its own but it's very warm and doesn't cut through much when you're playing with a band. I'm looking to get a little more punch while keeping the warm sound of the EB-0. Is the 810AV likely to help me with that at all? Also is there a handle on the bottom of the 810AV at all? If not, how the hell are you meant to carry it about?? The Marshall is a heavy beast (similar to the Ampeg) but it does have a bottom handle which makes it manageable. I also read about the Bergantino NV610 which sounds like exactly what I'm looking for. Tight, punchy, not too large or heavy (comparatively), while sounding kinda like an 810AV from what I've read. Is it really as great as people make it sound? It's a total bitch for me to buy, costing about 55% more than the 810AV at places I could buy it from (UK), but maybe I could be tempted. Will either of these cabs really make a huge difference to the sound I already have with the VBC-810?
